Are You Solving the Wrong Problem?

Want to play a game? Here’s how it works: Without reading any further, make a list of the last five people you’ve had a conversation with. Not necessarily a long conversation, but more than just, “Hello.” Got it? Here’s mine: The mailman A guy who we may hire to paint our house A guy in Starbucks who asked me to watch his computer while he went to the men’s room A woman in my neighborhood who I ran into at […] Click to read more…...

Are You Making It Hard For Me To Hire You?

We moved into our house 10 years ago. At the time, I made one promise: “I’m never moving again. They’re carrying me out of here in a box.” “Why move?,” I thought. “The neighborhood is great, the schools are nearby, and the house has everything we want.” Besides, it was such an ordeal to move that I did the math and quickly determined that death was preferable to packing boxes, painting bedrooms and killing/trapping whatever appears to be living beneath […] Click to read more…...

Aeration Complication

Have you ever aerated a lawn? I do it every year. If you’re not familiar with the concept, an aerator is a gasoline-powered machine equipped with a spiked metal roller on the bottom. It weighs about a billion pounds (I’m guessing) and its function is to poke finger-sized holes in your lawn, thereby “aerating” it and making it healthier. Your job is to walk behind this self-propelled behemoth as it takes angry bites out of the ground, all the while […] Click to read more…...

Do Your Prospects Trust You? Try This.

Do you have big plans for the weekend? I do. Beginning tonight at 6 pm and running through mid-day on Sunday, I will be reunion-ing (unless there is no such word) with my old business school buddies. It’s not just any reunion, either. It’s our 30 year. And what a great time we had back then. Going to classes, drinking beer, staying up late, going out dancing, and doing the things that unmarried 25-year-olds tend to do (don’t make me […] Click to read more…...

Stand-Up, And Be Remembered

Do you work long, hard hours? I don’t. Not because I’m so smart (although I am good-looking). It’s because in the world in which I live, my compensation is tied to value rather than effort. And so the law of diminishing returns applies. For example, the kind of writing I’m typically hired to do – short format, zesty, sometimes funny – doesn’t get better by grinding away at it. In fact, it often gets worse. Listen To This Post And […] Click to read more…...

Is Your Writing Evergreen? I hope not.

Well, it finally happened. After years of collective child-birthing, child-raising and “When is this child ever going to leave the house?”, the first member of my family’s next generation – my 11 nieces and nephews plus my own three children – has finally gotten engaged. Yes, for those of you keeping score at home, my nephew, Travis, is poised to break the tape at the single man finish line, on a date not yet determined. This is big news. Unlike […] Click to read more…...

Are You Running On Empty?

During the summer, there are few things I enjoy more than listening to live music. And there are few places I’d rather enjoy it than Fenway Park in Boston. And there are few musicians I’d rather see than Jackson Browne and James Taylor. And so when tickets went on sale this past February for those two, in that place, my wife Linda and I were all over it. Yesterday, after six months of waiting, the day had finally arrived. It […] Click to read more…...

Roomba Has It

My wife walked in on me last week. I’m guessing I’m not the first man this has ever happened to, but it’s embarrassing all the same. I was standing in the upstairs bathroom with the door mostly – but not completely – closed. I thought I was alone in the house. Suddenly, and much to my surprise, Linda burst in, took one look and said, “What are you doing?!” Listen To This Post Don’t worry, it’s not what you were […] Click to read more…...

The Sound of 1,000 Golfers

Do you play golf? I don’t. Its appeal is lost on me. I could probably learn to like it but, like cigar smoking, I see no reason at this point in my life to cultivate a new, expensive habit that might only serve to annoy my wife (I’ve got enough old habits that do the job just fine). But last week, my friend Shawn was in town visiting for a few days. Matt, Rick and I wanted to do some […] Click to read more…...

Rinse And Repeat

In what has become an increasingly rare alignment of my adult and near-adult children’s respective calendars, we had a 10-day period earlier this month when everybody was home at the same time. That’s unusual. My son Evan lives in Memphis. My daughter Emily lives in Tacoma. And my son Jonathan, while technically still a high school-age resident of our house, is verifiably spotted with Yeti-like frequency. And so we planned a three-day, family getaway to nearby Brattleboro, Vermont. As always, […] Click to read more…...
