I just completed my Banff to Yellowstone bike ride: 13 days on a bike cycling over 800 miles and climbing over 28,000 feet of mountains. The scenery was stunning. The Canadian Rockies were incredible. Montana was breathtaking. Crossing the Continental Divide on a bike was a literal and figurative high. Upon reflection, the secret to […]

In an interview for the New York Times, he reflected, “My view was not so much that leaving was a risk.

I’m launching my 6th bicycle adventure this week. Since 2011, I’ve biked across the country, up the East coast, down the West coast, across Iowa, and from Crater Lake to Yosemite. On August 2, I start pedaling from Banff National Park in Canada to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. 825 miles. Why? Because I love that […]

Ubuntu (oo-boon-too): an old African word meaning “humanity,” beautifully translated as, “I am because we are.” Essentially, we can only experience our humanity through our interactions with others. Ubuntu compels us to look after each other with kindness, compassion, and generosity of spirit. I discovered Ubuntu staying at a Radisson. It was 3:00am when I called […]

Einstein said, “If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question to ask, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.” There are two kinds of […]

We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing. (attributed mostly to George Bernard Shaw, sometimes to Benjamin Franklin or Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe) This line was quoted in the movie Tag, which I had the joy of watching recently. Based on a true story, the movie showcases a group […]

Shoshin is a concept in Zen Buddhism that means “beginner’s mind.” Like children, beginners are open to new learning and discovering. But as we collect experiences and knowledge in a subject, a job, or in life, we tend to ignore new information. Eventually we listen for information that confirms and validates what we already know […]

Admittedly Warren Buffett was petrified of public speaking. After taking a Dale Carnegie course in 1952, he taught an investment class at a local college to overcome his fears and sharpen this important skill. Today the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway asserts, “Effective public speaking instantly raises a person’s value by 50%.” Every day we are […]

I have a confession… I’ve been kissing a lot of worms lately. Figuratively, not literally. I keep getting in the weeds on projects – I’m so far in that I’m kissing worms. For example, Cindy on my team took the initiative to set up a follow-up meeting with a client. I insisted on participating and […]
