Bring on November and the Rest of My Life

New routine. 5:00am. Coffee. Feed cats. Outside and down the driveway. Look up. Stars, planets and inspiration. A few minutes pass. I return to the warmth of the house with coffee in hand and cats in tow. I head to my writing spot. I begin. I write. My routine is set.  Few blog entries recently as I prepare for...

Password Affirmations

"Your password has expired. Please reset your password now."  Most people groan when it is time to change their password at work. These days I smile and welcome the opportunity. For so long I used full words with added numbers and symbols just as we all did. Over the past year I changed my approach to... Continue Reading →

Make Your Soul Smile

Less than three months to go until the end and a beginning and whatever may come. I focus now on my plan for a new job and how to fit 26 years onto a résumé. I am not alone and together at work we help each other improve our LinkedIn profiles and yes, how to create... Continue Reading →

Career Talk for Young and Old

My kids always come first.  While I should focus on my career and job prospects, instead I focus on the career plans for my children.  As I talk to them about jobs, career choices, college majors and such I find it is helping me with my journey and near-term decisions.  I too have to get a...

An end is near.  It is a necessary step to the beginning that will... Continue Reading →

A Journey to Here

It is time for a summer road trip - everyone into the car, wife, kids and dad behind the wheel.  Early start and we head north.  I look forward to this journey. I want to go there. I need to leave here. Truthfully, I know, there is no there. Forever there is only here and... Continue Reading →

A Perfect Ratio

Three Art Practice Majors and a Business Major.  Four college graduates ready to make their mark. I like that ratio. My daughter graduated last month from Saint Mary's College of California, a terrific liberal arts college in the San Francisco Bay Area.  She is one of the three, an Art Practice major.  Two of her best...

Three Meals

All business.  Fly from San Francisco to Chicago.  Arrive one evening and leave the next evening.  One bag, one suit.  All business. That was one week ago. A successful trip with the business result I desired. The script was simple enough, arrive at hotel and order room service as I prepare for my business the... Continue Reading →

Knowledge, Experience, and Earned Wisdom

Today is my birthday. I stand at the halfway marker. Today I am 50 years old. I said the same thing at age 45. I plan to say the same at 60 years old. Halfway there on my journey. Much to reflect on looking back; much to anticipate as I look forward. I stand here... Continue Reading →
