I’m not an “Us” or a “Them”

Politics are ruining my friendships. Look, I don’t really want to know what you care about, because most of us care about crazy shit that others don’t understand, or can’t understand. You getting me to understand your crazy, probably isn’t a good thing! I have true friends who are pro-life. I love these friends. I don’t […]

Officially Announcing My Candidacy for the 2020 Presidential Election #ACatInEveryPot

Apparently, we will now campaign for four years to become the President of the United States for four years. Makes sense. I like the Canadian system of campaigning way better than what we have here! 90 days or less and we’re done! Doesn’t that sound like a smart law? Until then, I’ll have to live […]

The Gift of Desperation 

Things are going pretty well. Very okay. Smooth. I’ve got no complaints. Just keeping the train on the tracks. We’re running a well-oiled machine. Things are humming along. The sound of average is something we’ve gotten so use to hearing that we actually don’t even hear it any longer. The calmness that surrounds average is warm […]

Your Sunsets Are Numbered!

I had a couple of things happen to me this past week. First, I traveled to the Cayman Islands for an HR conference and some vacation. I’m in love with the Cayman Islands. Great people, the most beautiful water you’ll ever see and mind changing sunsets.  I swam with Stingrays and Sea Turtles. I saved my […]

Michael J Fox’s Perspective on Co-Workers #WorkHuman

Michael J. Fox was one of the closing day keynotes at the WorkHuman conference this year, and he killed it like you expect. One of the key takeaways I took from his talk was in regards to all those people you work with on a day to day basis. Mike Fox laid out two things […]

Don’t Apply to College if You’re White, Middle Class and Male

I heard a female comedian the other day say one of the truest things I’ve ever heard: Look, if you’re a white dude, and you’re failing in America, you’re really a failure! You’re like the definition of failure! You can’t be a white dude and complain about how hard life is. If you’re a white […]

The 3 Conference Speakers You’ll See At a Conference Near You

I was sitting at an HR conference last week next to my friend, Laurie Ruettimann, listening to someone talk about something they did at some company and made this statement: “You know, you only see three types of conference speakers.” We were bored. We start talking in the back like the bad kids in class. So, […]

The Most Average Place on Earth

I was on Spring Break last week and I took my wife and two youngest sons to California. First, let me say, SoCal was pretty great! 70’s and Sunny, like 8 days in a row. I don’t think I’ve seen 70s and sunny for eight straight days in Michigan, ever! We stayed in Hermosa Beach. […]

So, enjoy the Reruns, they’re some of my favorites! Originally ran January 2013 –  Over the holidays, I got a chance to see […]
