Ralph Waldo Emerson's TIMELESS ADVICE FOR CREATIVE INTELLECTUALS

I haven't been able to stop thinking about this bit of Emersonian wisdom since first being introduced to it circa September of 1966! OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN MY LIFE, LIFE HAS PROVEN IT TO BE 100% TRUE:
"In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts: they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty. Great works of art have no more affecting lesson for us than this. They teach us to abide by our spontaneous impression with good-humored…

Don't waste your life trying to be someone else.

Dr. Earl R Smith II, Mentor & Adviser

DrSmith@Dr-Smith.com

Much of my mentoring work begins with a fairly standard initial session. Perhaps someone who has talked to a friend of mine and or past client (for the most part, they tend to be the same) has expressed dissatisfaction with the way their life is turning out. Or maybe they…

How One Can Impact a Whole Team

http://youtu.be/xzTX_UB2YFcIn October 2001, after delivering two days of training in August, GA, I drove across Interstate 20 to Atlanta. The next 24 hours, during my stay at the Marriott Northwest hotel, were some of the most emotionally turbulent hours I had ever spent. It was a front desk clerk by the name of Alex Shane that got me through this most difficult time, enabling me to deliver two more days of training.

Almost immediately, this…

A recommendation regarding the striking fast food workers

Here's my recommendation regarding the striking fast food workers:

$10.00 per hour + TIPS (Commission EARNED for QUALITY customer services.)

Let the marketplace combine with the workers' attitudes and abilities determine whether they'll make just $10.00 per hour or $15.00 per hour or $20.00+ per hour.)

  1. $10.00 stabilizes
  2. Tips incentivizes

(I'm aware that the above would take a fairly monumental sea change in the industry but, if…

I Know I am right, that is my job!!!!!

Several years ago I walked into my favorite bookstore and was fascinated by a book on the shelf.What caught my eye was the bright orange cover and the band of duct tape across the cover. The book was Chip and Dan Heath’s first book titled “Made to Stick.” Since then I have been looking forward to reading their other works. It is no different for their newest work titled “Decisive.”

In Chapter 7 titled“Ooch”, they talk about a company which scheduled interviews for an open…

Thankful Reasons For Virtual Networking on "T.H.A.N.K.S.G.I.V.I.N.G."*

As an adult, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday not just because of the abundance of good food and great football games but, rather, because of the limitless value contained in the word "Thanks". 

 

For that reason, I'm happy to revisit the "T.H.A.N.K.S.G.I.V.I.N.G." acronym I created specifically to memorialize my appreciation of the business value I've derived from social media.* 

 

Top Twelve Reasons I'm Giving Thanks for Virtual Networking on…
