You Can Start Feeling Better With Something Very Small.

You may try, but you will never be able to make today the same as yesterday. You can stay in bed, but the date will still change. You’ll move your body in different ways. You’ll age. Nothing ever stays the same. Not you, not the world around you, and most definitely not what you thinkContinue reading “You Can Start Feeling Better With Something Very Small.”

Don’t Ever Stop Publishing

When someone ‘likes’ a post on my blog, it has real meaning for me. I am not a ‘numbers’ guy – I hardly ever check my stats. Scott Berkun interestingly describes the process by which the WordPress ‘like’ function developed into what it is today in this fascinating book. The point is, he and hisContinue reading “Don’t Ever Stop Publishing”

A Little Story Of Hope

A little hope can be a powerful thing. It’s why I keep writing every day. I never got a response from the person or persons who manage the anti-Disney Twitter account. I didn’t expect to convince them that Disney was one big fairytale, but I did hope to get at least one of their followersContinue reading “A Little Story Of Hope”

Should We Employ Cyber Security In Suicide Prevention?

I began this mini-series of posts exploring what to do if you read something suicidal online from someone you know well, or, not so well. This is the real question that I want to tackle: What can, and what should, the government do? There is no doubt that this question cannot be answered in oneContinue reading “Should We Employ Cyber Security In Suicide Prevention?”

Responding To Anonymous Posts Indicating Self-Harm

I mentioned yesterday that picking up the phone to call someone you know is the best first course of action. What should you do when someone you know ‘online’ – but you don’t know their real name – indicates imminent self-harm? We’re getting into a subset of people here (bloggers, message board members, etc.) thatContinue reading “Responding To Anonymous Posts Indicating Self-Harm”

You’re the CEO. Now What?

If you were starting a company tomorrow, what would your role be? What is your area of greatest potential? One person cannot do everything – believe me, I’ve tried. You must be smart enough to delegate certain roles to people who are smarter than you. Back to you. You might quickly know that you’d needContinue reading “You’re the CEO. Now What?”

Breaking News: The NFL’s New Anti-Bullying Policy

It is widely assumed that Roger Goodell and the NFL will release an anti-bullying policy in reaction to this year’s highly publicized ‘Jonathan Martin / Richie Incognito / Miami Dolphins’ situation. Roger has several other major scandals to play Monday Morning Quarterback for, so I figured I would lend a hand. Roger, I’ve taken theContinue reading “Breaking News: The NFL’s New Anti-Bullying Policy”

Time Changes Nothing

Save perhaps a terrible hangover, you don’t feel any different when you wake up on January 1st versus the previous morning. Why? Calendars, being man-made, serve as common points of reference, but they are not real. They are perceived. Except, we’ve become hyper-focused on calendars and clocks. Everything hinges on the quarterly numbers. Deadlines mustContinue reading “Time Changes Nothing”

Discover Your Best Ideas

Yesterday I discovered some drafts from 2009 (in my Google Drive) that taught me – about myself.  The very first of all 207 posts on this blog was published on May 31, 2013.  That was shortly after I read Seth Godin’s ‘Icarus Deception‘, which I have referenced as the spark of this blog. (Oh, inContinue reading “Discover Your Best Ideas”
