Clearly, the digital world has damaged many peoples’ ability to engage in useful dialog. This morning, I came to the conclusion that 80% of the comments in any given thread are not “dialog” . . . they are a collage of ego driven monologues. (on my 3rd reading of this comment, I almost deleted it ...

We all have more than our fair shares of invitations to meetings.Some meetings are more “relevant and important” than others. Before committing to attend, most folks want to know WIIFM (What’s in it for me?). At a minimum, We want to know the topic/theme . . . even better if we can know who else ...

Did you ever have one of those days that, out of the blue, there’s this recurring theme that shows up all around you? This morning , I woke up thinking about “When things aren’t happening according to the plan”, so I talked about that in my Barrysdrivetime.com (Embedded below). When I got to the ...

Coming from curiosity is a gift to everyone. When we’re wearing our business hat, how often do we go beyond the initial dialog? Is it always an exchange of information or a negotiation, or can it also include some level of warmer connection? The most effective conversations begin with some form o...

Having been a card carrying prolific reader of books for many decades, I’ve decided to impose a moratorium on reading for “a while.” How long is “a while”? Well . . . I’m currently overwhelmed by the sheer volume of new knowledge that rushes into my field of perception. “They” say that upon which...

How do you “make a living” . . . AKA earn money to pay for your needs and wants? Do you have a JOB . . . or is it a Career? If it’s a job, is this job a short term gig or a professional pursuit? Are you enthusiastic about “going to work”, and do you feel fulfilled or empty at the end of each day?...

I can think of a bajillion reasons to be “too busy” to volunteer for your cause. After all, there are at least another bajillion people with myriad “opportunities” for me to spend my time, energy, and money to help others. I know your cause is important to you, and I respect that. In fact, I am g...

This is the first full week of May! Are you busy? What are you doing that’s making you busy? Is it the right stuff . . . the stuff that results in making money and/or fulfillment? Personal fulfillment is important, otherwise it’s just another day in the grind. If you’re thinking: “Another day of ...

Nashville’s Transit Referendum failed in 2018. My opinion is that exactly the right thing happened. That plan had splashes of brilliance in a sea of ill-conceived and illogical notions. Establishing “nodes” tied into the greenways in areas in need of neighborhood development was the brilliance, a...

Even the top notch notch performers have bad days. In fact, some of these elite masters might even have a bad week – or bad month – – or bad year(s).

Freedom Shock is unbridled passion! These things – obstacles – shackles – chains – overbearing people – stupid rules . . . They hinder our creativity. They’re holding us back. Sometimes, they’re self imposed limiting beliefs or believed boundaries. We’ve been told this cannot be done – It’s impos...

For many folks, May is about that time of year when folks start realizing they’ve fallen off the wagon of diligently pursuing their goals for the year.We don’t do this intentionally. It happens naturally as we gravitate towards that comfort zone where life is a bit less dynamic. It’s nice to be “...

The best professionals have a process for everything they do. Airline pilots, re-fuelers, mechanics, and flight attendants diligently and precisely follow the same pre-flight checklist prior to EVERY flight.

I did it anyway! My morning routine is a non-negotiable. It MUST be this way because I know that, on those days I fail to do it ALL, finding FLOW for the remainder of the day will be a futile pursuit. The cost of cheating is immeasurable in terms of lost opportunity, self-degradation, and the DAN...
