Architects and Engineers Enjoy Self Discovery Too!

Why is the Cheetah on the cover of a business book?

Well, now that I think about it, there are probable about four reasons. Remember I am a strategic lion myself, so the cover wasn’t just a random, quick choice – it was planned, considered, researched, considered again, reviewed and considered again.
So reason one. I love the “big cats” and of the big three felines in Africa – the lion, leopard and cheetah – the cheetah is my favorite.  The slender, sleek, graceful, swift predator has beautiful golden, short, spotted fur with a bushy white tuft […]

The Fine Art of Communication

It’s time to hit the campaign trial!
I am not referring to Ferrell and Galifianakis in the movie “The Campaign” that was released last week, but rather the “other two” that are on their presidential campaign trail. I travel a fair amount (about 165,000 miles a year) but can’t even begin to fathom the millions of miles they must travel. (I do suppose it’s a tad different in Air Force One compared to Southwest Airlines, right?)
OK, so this is not a political post. My Weekly wisdom […]

Tenacity Creates Incredibly Inspiring Stories

Life is difficult for most people. Striving and achieving at any level requires talent, focus, commitment and tons of endurance. To succeed at the highest level such as the Olympics is not possible for most of us.
So when you see someone reach that level of excellence it is moving… and 100 times more, when that person has a serious disability…such as no legs.
I can’t even begin to fathom what it would be to be a double amputee. Yet South African sprinter Oscar Pistorius is now […]

7 Steps in Creating a Great Plan

As I started writing this post I had to take a moment to reflect on the passing of highly respected author last week.
Stephen Richards Covey (79) died on Monday July 16th after complications from falling from a bicycle in April. Covey was in my opinion one of the world’s foremost authorities on leadership. He was an American educator par excellence, a multiple times New York Times best selling author, and a great motivational speaker. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
Among the […]

One Company’s Trash – Another Company’s Treasure

Great story of someone who saw the future.
In the late 1980s, Ken Kutaragi was watching his daughter play a Nintendo game console and he realized the potential of video games. At that time, Sony’s executives had little interest in video games, and when Nintendo expressed interest, Kutaragi responded by working in secret. Sony execs nearly fired him after discovering his sideline project, but then-CEO Norio Ohga realized the value of his innovation and encouraged Kutaragi’s efforts. With Sony’s blessing, Kutaragi worked with Nintendo […]
