It is All Spock's Fault

I was talking with a neighbor the other day who informed me that the basis of the problems facing the nation and businesses was the spouting of Dr.Benjamin Spock. (Sorry you Sci-Fi geeks in the audience thought I meant Spock from the Star Trek series didn’t you!!) My neighbor’s contention was that those children brought up under the influence of Dr Spock have become self-serving individuals with little care for others.

He may have a grain of truth in that some of us raised our…

Fostering Curiosity & Managing ADHD in the Classroom

Picture I have been meditating for twenty five years. It is a daily ritual as important to me as sleeping and eating the right food. One metaphor to describe meditation is to imagine you are looking at your thoughts as if they are clouds drifting across the sky. These thoughts may be troubling or pleasant. When you let something that is troubling you be like a cloud in…

Same Difference

It's the difference which makes a brand a brand. (#!)

It's the difference which makes us choose one brand over another.  (#@)

When we persistently choose the same brand over a different brand it's, literally, the same "difference" which we're choosing. (##)
E.g., Miracle Whip is different from other brands of mayonnaise. It's the difference which causes us to choose Miracle Whip over other brands.  As long as Miracle Whip remains the same and remains different from…

Defiantly positive

Defiantly positive. (Wouldn't it be a hoot to know that you're capable of being defiantly positive through 90+% of your life?)

Don't stay stuck in "bump assessment" too long

Don't stay stuck in "bump assessment", too long...
It's obvious that the US as well as the global economies are going through a problem phase. Yet, what does it say about us if we just get into an "Oh, woe is me!" mentality? 
A quick metaphor: You're driving down the street and you hit a bump in the road. Are you the type of person who stops, gets out a meditation blanket and ruminate all day on the experience of having hit a bump? Or are you the type of prudent…

Get off the Bench

My local churches have come through again. One of them has a sermon posted for this weekend titled Get off the Bench. It made me think for a moment about how that would apply to HR. When you think about it that is where HR is today. We are on that bench. We as HR professionals seem to be complacent with staying in one position even if that leads us to be marginalized within our organizations. We get a request from management or an employee and unless it is in a narrow realm, our immediate…

Invisible Messengers (or A Medicine Called Forgiveness)

The two year long battle between my oldest brother and me ended just in time for us to spend the last six months of his life as friends - and in time for me to learn a rather startling lesson from him.



I suppose siblings need to fight among themselves in order to gain strength and adequate skills to survive in the external world, much as bear cubs need to fight among themselves to prepare them for their world.



But I'm happy that my brother and I got…
