It’s July 3rd. Last night I went out and purchased a few bottles of a quality root beer. I chilled one to just shy of freezing and sat outside with my dogs – trying to convince Bailey, the abused pit bull that was dropped in our neighborhood a few months back, that the crack of […]
I share some thoughts on being raised by Dirty Harry – aka: my father.
I am pretty confident but I still struggle with insecurity and am working to overcome fear. I discuss a question that can cause fear and kill creativity.
I coach people and I do it well. I guess I am known as a bit of a hard-ass. I don’t coddle my clients and I do NOT tolerate inactivity or poor effort! And apparently, I have a pretty strong leadership quotient. That’s a fancy way of saying that I often am asked to – […]
One of the “Amazing!” things I was blessed to see this week. A small lizard I caught while working in the yard. My daughter’s friend was probably more “amazed” that I was letting it bite my finger.. Apparently, I’m known for saying, “That’s Amazing!” often. Whether it is what I see in nature, in music, […]
I know.. a lot of people do their year in review around this time. I didn’t. I know what I achieved and what I did not. We can summarize big things quickly: 2013 Rapid Review: New Book – Building Your I.T. Career This is a rebirth of sorts for me. New Business – Pulse Infomatics, […]

I was inspired to start a garden after visiting my daughter in Phoenix and I talk about it here. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3cDvxCmfd8] I mention Ron Finley’s TED Talk about turning food deserts into food gardens. Worth watching for sure. And my daughter writes about Hope House Farms and why she needs the farm more than it needs her. […]
I was onsite with a client a couple weeks ago. They are involved in a pretty high-pressure, aggressively scheduled, construction project. I had the opportunity to walk the job site with him. At one point, he was discussing a change that involved some reconstruction. One of the people on the site responded that, given the […]
