This post might serve as some indication as to the type of week I’ve had. One where the veil has been pulled aside to further clarify some observations that I’ve noticed in my long and winding career journey. 1. Our organization is not our family. This very notion that my organization is a family has always made […]
Not your standard workplace: a fascinating video of life on a container ship. [HT: Rick Miller]
The trailers for: "Harry" "Cold Comfort Farm" "The Postman" "Restoration" "Viktor"
First, a brief motivational video. [HT: Lou Rodarte] And then an observation by General Stanley McChrystal in his book, Team of Teams: Prediction is not the only way to confront threats; developing resilience, learning how to reconfigure to confront the unknown, is a much more effective way to respond to a complex environment.
Roald Dahl's "Crocky-Wock The Crocodile." I used to read this to my kids. It was better than "Little Bo-Peep."
The trailer for the new documentary, "Listen to Me Marlon."
We can certainly use it. More is expected this weekend. We had a dust storm in the middle of the night a few days ago which is sort of underwhelming because what's the use of a good dust storm if you don't get to see it roll in? That plus no water. Show More Summary
Glenn Gould playing Bach.

Here's one collection. I don't know. Silence always worked for me.
The Unnaturals with "If Only Keith Richards Could Surf." [HT: Rick Miller]
The trailer for "Taylor Camp." You may recall all of the insights and inventions which flowed from the hippie communes.
Leonard Bernstein. Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony. Crank it up.
Here are 10 “bricks” I use for employee engagement. The bricks from top to bottom and left to right are: results, performance, progress, relationships, recognition, moments, strengths, meaning, wellbeing, and energy. They were unstructured bricks until one day I played with them and they rearranged themselves into a pyramid. I like the 10 bricks and the pyramid […]
Lorrie Morgan: "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?"
Mark and Maggie O'Connor playing "Appalachia Waltz."
The trailers for: "The Misfits" "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" "Marlowe"
A little something before the work week begins: a conversation between Sydney Greenstreet and Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon. Great dialogue and great camera angles.
