Turn Autopilot Off, Happiness On

When people crowd the airport baggage claim to form a human wall of entitlement, we could jump to the conclusion that greed is dictating that action. But I choose to believe we simply aren’t thinking about it. As happens in many areas of life, we are on autopilot. While writing Step Back From the Baggage Claim, where I spent seven straight days living in airports across America, I conducted an interesting Security Line Study. I...

ReMember: My Fab Five

We all have memberships. Formally, we belong to clubs, organizations, social networks, and more. More importantly, we also belong to our families, friends, communities, and our world. So? We need to break out of the staleness of the status quo. We need to make conscious choices to create the lives we live. We need an awakening of sorts. We need to remember why we do what we do, who we are trying to be, and... The post ReMember: My Fab Five appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

Assume Their Baggage is Heavy

I stopped at a new grocery store one day, excited to try it but immediately frustrated by the disorganization. I, of course, was in a general hurry, and just as I tried to chart a course, an elderly woman with seemingly no awareness for others cut right in front of me with her cart, nearly running over my toes. After finding my few items and stepping into a spot in the checkout line, the same oblivious... The post Assume Their Baggage is Heavy appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

Creating the Life You Want

A running conversation my wife Amy and I have is centered on the question, “What is the life we are trying to create?” Not only is it a powerful question for us, but it is also a question we return to often. We try to gain clarity on the vision we have for our lives. We try to be thoughtful and purposeful about who we want to be and what we’re about. We need to...

Lessons in Passion from a Bellhop

As soon as the elevator would open and I would make my way in to the expansive hotel lobby, Survino came trotting from clear across the other side of the room, through the masses, to me. “Mr. Jason, Mr. Jason, how are you today?” he would always begin with such a gentle but upbeat tone. “I’m doing just fine, Survino. How are you today?” I would respond. “Oh, I am well, Mr. Jason. Is there... The post Lessons in Passion from a Bellhop appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

The Gift of the Smile

Plenty of researchers have shared the power of the smile. But while writing Step Back From the Baggage Claim, I decided to study it myself. For my informal Smiling Study, I wondered how people would respond to me looking them square in the eye and smiling. So I walked the six airport terminals for 30 minutes each, in Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, San Diego, and Columbus, doing nothing but looking people in the eyes and...

Get Creative: Make Like Bamboo and Shoot

Bamboo: I love it. It follows a growth structure that is quite different from other plants. Simply put, bamboo doesn’t just grow individual canes straight into the air one at a time. Beneath the surface, the roots branch out sideways, each culm growing a short distance until it shoots off in another direction. Only a few canes shoot through and up. The best creativity, I believe, grows in this same way. We don’t just start... The post Get Creative: Make Like Bamboo and Shoot appeared first on Jason Barger. ...
