Inspirational Groceries

 

 

 

When I go to Kroger I am inspired.  No kidding!  The Kroger I frequent is really no different than any other.  Okay, their produce is significantly better than Meijer and they do a fair job with customer service but it’s really not all that special.  That was until…

Does It Have To Be All About The Money?

 

Recently I was having a conversation with my son who just happens to be a server.  He’s been serving for 3 or 4 years and has experienced decent success (enough to live on his own, pay his bills and enjoy a few beers with his friends now and then).  Because I have a passion for customer service and for my son’s success, I was interested in…

Meaningful Relationships & Business





Relationships are so important. I remember whenever I struggled early in my career I would console myself by remembering that I have the best friends and family in the world. I am very blessed to have a family that loves and supports me and I have more than a few close “lifetime friends”. I have made it a priority to stay in touch with my friends from high school and college and doing so has enriched my life.


In addition to my friends from…

People Report Conference – What’s the Difference?

Scintillating, Fascinating, Awe-Inspiring, Outta This World, Off the Charts, Molecule Rearranging, Inspirational, Motivational, Mind-Boggling, Flabbergasting? String em together - MAYBE. Any…

Inspiration 101

Two ways to do it…..



Do it because I pay you.

Do it because I inspired you.



Both work.

One gets amazing results.

One gets short-term results.

One takes a lot of work, one not so much.



Inspiration takes a lot of work and some folks just aren’t willing to give what it takes to lead from this very important value.



What does it take you…

Going To The Dogs



With all the doom and gloom finding its way into our daily lives I was just reminded by Ben Stein that maybe we should look to dogs for a source of inspiration.



What if we greeted each person as if they were an old friend?

What if we showed that excitement by wearing the biggest smile on our face?

What if we didn’t care about a person’s title or station in life?

What if we were not impressed by monetary… Continue

The Inspiration of D.J. Gregory

We are all experiencing times of incredible challenge in our business and personal lives. So many things seem beyond our control and disaster appears to dog our every step.



I watched the sheer determination of DJ through tears and found a renewed vigor to move ahead doing my very best, learning from the stumbles.



There is no panacea for our problems - just the example of DJ - facing obstruction and achieving… Continue

Revenge can be sweet—and savory.

Perhaps if George Crum were a chef-waiter today, he'd have been active participant in the Waiter Rant blog, which we're discussing in Roy McNaughton's post about the new book of the same name.



Or maybe not.



Some of you might know it was George Crum who developed the potato chip in 1853. So the story goes: It started when Crum served customers french fries. But, dissatisfied the potato slices… Continue

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
