Managing the Exception – When Dumbing it Down is just Dumb. - 12/09/10 01:34 PM
Consider for a moment: …The ‘this is hot’ hot coffee disclaimer because someone was a bit too litigious. …The pricey buffet lunch because of the guy who stuffed his pockets with shrimp on the way out. …The restricted access lane because someone forgot to signal when turning left. …The end of ‘Casual Friday's’ because Tawdry Tammy took casual too far.
… Anything done by the TSA… Sound familiar? It’s the ‘Managing the Exception’ Effect. So often our society is guided by the weakest link or the exception to the norm. We pander to the last train car and the least common denominator*. We dumb (6 comments)

Fort Collins City Guide – Mountain Crash Sites - 12/06/10 05:18 PM
The Rocky Mountains have long been held as a noteworthy adversary for explorers of all types and sizes but they are also a challenge for aircraft. This was especially true during the first century of manned flight. In fact, there were an estimated 28 aircraft lost to Colorado mountainsides from the 1940’s through today. The military policy to leave downed aircraft means that most of these wreckages are still available for exploration (if you can reach them!). Here are a few of Northern Colorado’s unfortunate travel mishaps: In 1943, a B-17 smashed into Stormy Peak (West of Fort Collins) during World (3 comments)
Changes, They are A'Comin... - 12/03/10 08:10 PM
I’d written a lovely blog post this week about how excited I was for my business in 2011. Then yesterday the world tilted and shook that right up. Our beloved little independent company, Infinity Group Realty, was acquired yesterday by ERA Herman Group Real Estate. And, while ERA Herman Group has some wonderful systems and support that we couldn’t duplicate at our previous size, there is still this sense of loss and grief at the ‘death’ of a brand that we all were passionately dedicated to. This morning, in the midst of still being shocked and processing the changes at hand, (11 comments)

Bullying – It’s Not Just for Kids Anymore - 12/01/10 12:44 PM
Ever run across a bully? Somehow a few of them lasted through their school years and have aged into oversized jerks with too much free time and the fervent belief that if they can then they should. I have a new bully 'friend'. I say friend because I’m clinging to every scrap of positive energy that I can find as all the negative anger, disbelief and hate I’ve experienced this week is exhausting. There is no point in allowing this man to ruin my week but I’m just not cut out for this. I live in world where adults act responsibly, (7 comments)
