Someone to chase

Last Saturday I headed out for my bike ride, unmotivated and a little bit sore after testing for the In Business Fittest Executive competition the previous day. I wasn't up for the challenge of my normal hilly ride, so I intentionally started on a flatter route. As I headed out of town on Seminole Highway, a young woman about my daughter's age passed me, and friendly as can be said, “Have a nice ride!”

What's the point?

Oftentimes I have my wife proof the final version of my blog. On my last blog, when she was done, she said, “It’s okay ... but what’s the point? What are you trying to get across by writing your blogs?” Ouch! As I paused and thought about it, I acknowledged that I wasn’t intending to convey anything particularly brilliant or necessarily brand new, but rather was trying to share business information that might not be top of mind for some people.

Fail forward

I recently heard about a book written by John Maxwell called Failing Forward. I haven't yet read the book, but when I heard the title, it immediately grabbed my attention. My mind started racing with several concepts of how I thought about “failing forward.” It was particularly timely as I had just had a project fail to work out, but was able to see it as a learning experience.

What would my replacement do?

I just attended the Chick-fil-A Leadercast event, which was very good. It was a simulcast presentation viewed live by 125,000 people with a goal of creating better leaders. It is an annual event that I would recommend: The presenters were very energizing, I picked up ideas for a few leadership and personal growth development books I want to read, and most importantly I came away with a new blog topic!
