Don’t be a Know-it-all

Stephen Hawking, who passed away this year, once said, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” I like this quote a lot because it’s something I realized about 30 years ago when I was trying to learn a lot of different things and there was just way too much for me to understand.

The Four C’s

I had a client of mine recently pass away at the age of 94. He was an amazing gentleman who truly epitomized the Four C’s, which is something I learned from The Strategic Coach® Program.

The Four Agreements

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom,” and you know the rest. This quote from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens leads me to think of another book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

Carpe Diem

In the 1989 movie, Dead Poets Society, Robin Williams plays John Keating, a literature teacher at a boys’ academy. Keating starts off his class with the words “Carpe Diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” This great quote hits home for me as this is something I try to do every day in my own life.

Stellar Service

I love to read, but it wasn’t until about five years ago that I realized if I wasn’t getting much out of a book after reading 20 pages, I should just stop reading it. I would just force myself to slog through a book I wasn’t interested in, and as a result, reading could sometimes be a chore and ultimately, a waste of my time.

Artificial Intelligence: Taking Our Jobs?

Do you remember in the cartoon The Jetsons, there was this cute robot named Rosie? She cleaned the house and did all sorts of things for the Jetson family. Well, that’s Artificial Intelligence, or AI.

The Future is Sunny

Did you know that several European countries have announced they will outlaw the sale of gas and diesel vehicles by 2040? It might sound crazy, and you may be wondering how they plan on getting around. There’s been a lot of change in the energy arena that I am going to cover that could make this goal attainable.

Human Longevity

I just returned from Abundance 360, which is an annual seminar held by Dr. Peter Diamandis from the XPRIZE. One of the major areas touched on at the seminar was human longevity. You’ve probably seen those movies which show an old witch becoming young by sucking the life force out of a young person, and while that sounds crazy, some of the research going on right now with human longevity is kind of like that. I’m going to highlight four individuals and the research their companies are doing on human longevity.

The Positive Problem

The movie Apollo 13 with Tom Hanks, depicted the true story of the Apollo 13 mission back in 1970. When everything went wrong on that mission, and they had to figure out how they were going to breathe in a very short period of time, they just got every single thing they had available on the aircraft and they put it all together to make it work. I always look to that example when I’m talking about problems and how to come up with possible solutions.

The What, How, and Who

Do you remember way back, maybe around the 4th grade, when you learned about interrogative words: who, what, when, where, and why? I want to focus on three of those words, the what, the how, and the who.
