How FAT are you?
Successful leaders are FAT, really, really FAT! Yeah, you read that right FAT, but it all depends on your definition of FAT. I’m thinking in terms of an acronym and here’s what FAT stands for:The 3 F’sFriendly - Successful leaders are usually friendly and have the ability to generate friends easily. In fact, in my experience, people would rather work with leader who is likable yet incompetent than with one who is a highly skilled jerk. Read How t...
Copyright: andreypopov / 123RF Stock PhotoMy first job out of college, after a year, I was fired. I remember it vividly, because it left an emotional scar on me for the rest of my life. I felt like a complete loser, even though I was fired by the manager because our branch had been audited, she had done something against company policy, and then she had laid the blame on me. I didn't steal any money. I didn't swindle our customers. What I did ...
It's surprising how many people don’t conduct their day rationally, but instead go about their day based solely on their feelings. They live from feeling to feeling, like stepping on stones while trying to cross a river. The only question is, “Which stone is the closest to me now?” The end result is that they never really cross the stream, but they made a lot of effort. Doesn’t effort count for anything?

Those reams of IGNORED research will continue to go ignored because most intervi...

I composed a partial list.So far I’ve survived: Terrorism The Bird flu "epidemic" The Swine flu “epidemic” … I mean H1N1 (wouldn’t want to offend the swine) The thinning of the ozone layer Contact sports including American football A firecracker exploding in my hand (didn’t lose a f...
There is a great deal of talk these days about the importance of finding a career you're passionate about. Seems like every blog I read, every personal development web site, every LinkedIn article talks about pursuing your passion and making a living doing it whether it's working at a job or as an entrepreneur. But despite trumpeting “passion” for decades and decades people aren’t following it. CareerBuilder says that 84% of all workers are not c...
“Don, I want you to fire Bill.” Howard wasn’t joking. Don could tell.“What? Why? Did he do something wrong?” Don asked.“He is an embarrassment to our company. Do you know what he and the rest of his crew did this weekend after work? They went to a Star Wars Convention … IN COSTUME … as Mr. Spock. He posted pictures all over social media and it made it to Oliver’s desk." (Oliver was the CEO) Howard was fuming. “So I get called in to his office wit...
