Overcome Your Gremlins

It’s never easy or comfortable to admit your failings. In fact, your brain protects you from considering such things by using techniques as minimizing, ignoring and excusing. For the most part, if you want to seriously consider where you fall short, you have to actively engage your thinking to listen for and accept your flaws […]

Navigate Your Career Path

One of the big changes that has occurred over the past 20 years is related to how you progress in your career. It used to be that the firm hired you and gave you work to do. Your responsibility was to keep your head down, learn and perform well. The firm’s leaders would tell you […]

More Of The Right Yeses

While attending a Clinical Counselors Conference a couple of weeks ago, I heard a speaker emphasize that saying no is an effective strategy to prevent overload and burnout.

Take a Risk. Be Remarkable

While listening to a former coach, now a sports commentator, I was struck by a comment he made as he evaluated an inexperienced quarterback. His assessment was that the young athlete took too many risks and needed to dial it back a bit. That said, he concluded his remarks by saying, “But I would rather […]

Follow Through or Come Through?

Every procedure, process and system is designed to produce a result. It has been tested and can be relied on to accomplish a desired end. The thinking is that if you follow the sequence or procedure, you will get the intended result. But what if you, having completed the procedure or process, still don’t get […]

I Don’t Have My Wallet

For those of you who are sports fans, you know that last week was the beginning of the NCAA basketball tournament. So I found myself at a local sports bar to see the most important game of the day (go WVU ‘Eers!) Having won the game and finishing my meal, it was time to check […]
