I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

Have you ever worked with someone, but there still is a communication break down? Of course you have.  You answered everything they’ve asked.  You’ve offered suggestions along the way.  You’ve even explored some options … just in case.  But, there’s still…

  I’ve been saying for years, “Folks I want on my team have to have Strength and Interest.” If you have Strength in your position, and you’re Interested in it, you can move the world … or at least, a small part of it.  ;) If you’re not Strong at…

Time to spread some wisdom. I know it was for demonstration purposes only, but I saw a seminar yesterday where piece parts were to be welded on, and they treated, dimensioned, and balooned as individual parts.  Not true. What is an Inseparable Assembly?…

Quality is job one

It’s been said, “It’s not the price, it’s the quality you get for the price.” You’ve seen the triangle.  We’ve joked about it for years.  It’s still true today. Products that are Cheap, and Fast are not any Good.  Products that are Good, and Fast are not…

Pick a path to take

It’s been said, “You “must” make a decision.  You can right.  You can go left.  You can go straight.  Just don’t stand still.” In the Marines, it was to force you to decide.  Standing still gets you killed.  (Not a good option.)  Realize, that whatever…

I was recently asked, “Are you looking for a Job that will lead to an Opportunity, or an Opportunity that will lead to a Job?” I paused, and thought, what an interesting way to put that!

Taking the high road

It’s been said, “Take the high road; it’s the road less traveled.” What does it mean to take the high road?  What does it mean to take that other road? Sure, one has a great view, but the other is just so tempting. One, requires taking a chance, the…
