I ranted on Facebook again…

One of the most important factors of driving high performance is the concept of motivation. DUH. Everybody knows that. So this rant is NOT about how to motivate someone. It’s about how to de-motivate them. Demotivation is the exact opposite of motivation. Instead of inspiring action, one is squelching it. Turning off the will toContinue reading “I ranted on Facebook again…”

When Your Credibility Sucks…

There seems to be a lack of credibility these days. And it’s actually quite disturbing to me. Whether we are talking about the government, business, or even sports, it is amazing to me how folks think that they can ignore their own stupidity mistakes and still maintain their drive to achieve success. Talk about a bunchContinue reading “When Your Credibility Sucks…”

How to Get the Anchor Off Your Neck

I’ve been on my annual pilgrimage the last couple of weeks to my childhood home. Of Hawai’i. I know.

I just wishContinue reading “Communication Is a Dirty Word”

So why do we push ourselves so hard? For some, it’s about the pressure of being successful. ForContinue reading “Where to find more frequent posts”

Ending my radio silence

Talk about radio silence. My last post was almost 2 months ago. Wow. I am definitely not a blogger. Nor is my desire to be a blogger.  I just want to be a guy with a perspective. One that others find valuable. So, please know that while I am committed to posting more often than every twoContinue reading “Ending my radio silence”

The End of the World as We Know It (pt. 3)

Well, we survived. 12/12/12, that is. Or is it supposed to be 12/21/12? Whatever. Thank God that the Mayans were not describing the end of the world. Apparently, the whole thing was mistranslated. Unfortunately, there is now a Mayan god named Bolon Yokte walking around Manhattan in underwear and a really big headdress. And peopleContinue reading “The End of the World as We Know It (pt. 3)”
