There are two reasons we say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. The first is pretty obvious. It gives the other person dignity. It acknowledges their humanity. It implies that at some level, this engagement is voluntary. But of course, none of this is true when we’re talking to Siri or Alexa. There’s a second reason. It […]

In The Wizard of Oz, we meet a powerful heroine. Dorothy is resolute, focused and honest. A generous partner, leading her friends to where they seek to go. “C’mon, let’s go,” is a great sentence, worth using more often. It doesn’t require a permit, a badge or a degree. It’s simply the work of someone […]

You probably know people who are late. Often. They don’t want to be late. In fact, their good intentions are probably the reason that they are late. They might try one technique or another, and even apologize for being late, and yet it happens again. There is one reason and one amplifying factor. The amplifying […]

It’s pretty easy to tell when you have a plumbing problem. Or when you need a roofer. And if your finances are a mess, you might have an accounting problem. But what are the symptoms that you have a marketing problem? There are people who would benefit from your work who aren’t engaging with you. […]

On my way to work, I need to make a left turn on a somewhat busy street. If there’s no traffic, it’s easy. Stop at the stop sign, look and go. And if there’s dense traffic, the decision is easy as well. Wait. It’s interesting to note what happens when the traffic is intermittent, with […]

Amazon sells junk. More junk every day. And they know this. They sell junk that would never, ever be sold at a Wal-Mart store. That’s because in order to get into a store, a buyer, a human being with a reputation, has to allocate shelf space. The easiest way to lose your job as a […]

When two people have a heated discussion about an issue, one of three things could be happening: One of them is wrong. At the moment, each of them are sure that the other person is the one who’s wrong. Neither of them is wrong. They’re arguing about something where right and wrong are relative, based on perspective.

There are words that now have no meaning at all. Literally no meaning. We write them to take up space. To make ourselves seem more serious or smarter. We speak them to give ourselves a pause, a moment to catch up to our riff. ‘Well’ and ‘so’ have been doing this work for a long time, […]

In our office, the kitchen exhaust fan blows the smoke from the cooktop–back into the kitchen. It’s a closed loop, a palliative, a noisy device that doesn’t do much except make you feel like at least you’re trying. Most of the exhaust fans in our lives are actually part of a closed system. The detritus, […]

On one hand, Uncle Ben’s rule makes great sense: “With great power comes great responsibility.” The essence of the rule is that once you have great power, you need to take the responsibility that goes with it. And yet, it’s backfiring. It’s backfiring because so many walk away from their great power. They walk away […]
