The knee bone’s connected to the … creativity bone?

Lately I’ve been struggling. Struggling with minor back problems and a knee injury that led to recent meniscus surgery. I’ve also been struggling with an idea for my next blog. I think these two struggles are related and that my knee injury is somehow linked to my creativity.

Bring your ‘B’ game

Last weekend I went out for my first bike ride of the year. The first ride is always hard, and I was battling a strong wind that day too. The bad news was I realized my computer battery was dead. But that ended up being the good news, as I didn’t know how slow I was on that first windy ride.

Would you pass the ‘beer test’?

I missed my last blog, as my mom recently passed away. One thing I will share with you is that my mom was truly the nicest person I ever met. That was obviously a wonderful thing for me throughout my life, and I hope at least a little of the niceness rubbed off on me. I think it helped me prosper work-wise, specifically at my current company. That’s because our company’s personality is one of being “nice.” That may sound biased, but being nice is not always the best corporate personality to have.

Strength or weakness?

Think about someone you work with and know well. Now think about their greatest strength. Is it a strength or is it a weakness? It’s probably both. Last week I was talking to a coworker about how “a person’s weakness is an overextension of their strength.” I was surprised to find this was a new concept to her, as it is so familiar to me. The idea that a strength, in excess, could become a weakness was explained to me by my mentor, Jerry Smith, about 20 years ago, and I’ve found it to be true in many situations with many different people.

Happy Same Year!

That doesn’t sound too exciting, does it? We all want the new year to be not just different, but, well … better. But unless you do something different, why should it be? Remember the definition of insanity – doing the same thing and expecting different results.
