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. ...

You Are Responsible for Your Wake

It was a beautiful summer evening in Kiawah, South Carolina. The sun was setting over the tree line and reflections glistened off the surface of the inlet waterway. I paddled quietly in my kayak as my 5-year-old daughter leaned back in my lap. It was a postcard kind of moment and the exact Stepping Back that we were looking for and needing as a family. Suddenly, a fishing boat came ripping through the cove. The... The post You Are Responsible for Your Wake appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

Finding Inspiration: My Summer Reading List

I very intentionally craft my schedule each year so that I can make time in July to step back from my everyday life in a meaningful way. I don’t stop working entirely; I simply work differently. It’s good for my family, for my soul and quite frankly, for my work. It allows me space to be inspired and have fun getting weird with ideas. It also means I make more time for reading, which I...

Regrouping: The Power of the Purposeful Break

My brother, Mike, works for Team Fishel, one of the finest utility construction and network installation companies in the United States. A couple of years ago, Team Fishel decided to take a look at the efficiency and effectiveness of its work crews. The report concluded that if at the end of each day the job foreman took 24 minutes to gather with the team, quickly go over the plan for the next day, state the...

Be a Servant Leader: 10 Big Ideas

I believe our world could use more servant leadership. When you think about your family, your work, your community, or our world, I think a spirit of servant leadership just might be what is needed. But, how do we practice? 10 quick ways to practice today: It starts with reframing our definition of the word leadership. It’s been hijacked in some ways over the years. It’s gotten so big and so broad that oftentimes we can... The post Be a Servant Leader: 10 Big Ideas appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

Monkey Traps: The Life-Saving Power of Letting Go

I remember seeing a show on TV once about how people caught monkeys somewhere clear on the other side of the globe from where I live. The host of the show detailed how the trappers would find trees that had fallen on the ground, hollow out the middle portion of the tree, and put a little piece of food inside the log. Then, on the top part of the trunk on the outside of the... The post Monkey Traps: The Life-Saving Power of Letting Go appeared first on Jason Barger. ...
