Weather, Or Not?

I guess I hadn’t given much thought to the weather. I heard something about snow coming, but it was far from top of mind as I headed out that Saturday morning for an all-day event at the New England Speaker’s Association. But when the event began, the first thing out of the meeting organizer’s mouth was, “SNOW! WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!” (It’s possible I am exaggerating.) She did say, however, that due to the coming storm, we’d be ending […] Click to read more…...

Expert Is, As Expert Does

Let me ask you a question. Here you are, email open, the words I’ve written in plain view. Maybe you’re learning something new; maybe you’re being reminded of something you knew but forgot. Either way, and this is the question, how do you know if any of what I am telling you is true? When I say relationship building is critical, or package pricing is best, or desperate prospects are always trouble, how do you know that’s good advice? Listen […] Click to read more…...

The Year’s At Its End; It’s Time To Push Send

Do you have a favorite joke? I do, and it goes like this: Two guys are out elk hunting. They’re crouched down in the woods when suddenly, they see a man running towards them, waving his hands and yelling, “I’m not an elk, I’m not an elk!” One of the hunters calmly raises his rifle and shoots him. The other hunter says, “What are you doing?! Didn’t you hear that guy yell, ‘I’m not an elk'”? The first hunter says, […] Click to read more…...

Silver Bullet Blues

I’m not sure what words I’d most like to hear coming out of my twenty-three-year old son’s mouth, but I’m pretty sure these are not them: “That may be the most ‘old guy hobby’ on Earth.” And yet that’s exactly what my son Evan said to me when I told him how I’ve been spending my time. Let me explain… Listen To This Post Last month, while rummaging through some old boxes in the basement, I came upon a combination […] Click to read more…...

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…...
