We are all looking for normal. We all want normal back. And we often hear people talk about the “new normal”. And I think we can all agree, there will be a new normal. Much like after Y2K, 9-11, the 2008 Crash, and now COVID, with each of these events life and things changed in certain ways forever. The #1 way I believe things will change with a new normal will be sanitation practices will be improved and much more strict in several ways, and businesses and faciliti...

I have been talking about lately how uncertainty creates a leadership opportunity, or even better, uncertainty creates a ton of leadership opportunities! Leadership is a privilege. We also must understand the leadership reputations are made or lost during times of crisis.  And in these times it is important to reaffirm and reinforce the privilege and responsibility of leadership. We do this by defining reality, share the real fears and anxieties, give hope, use comm...

Today is a great day! That is if you are choosing to make it great! There are many things in our control and many things not in our control, but control over our mind and the state of our attitude is a choice. And right now, choosing to have a steady diet of doom and gloom from any media source will likely greatly affect your control of your mind and state of your attitude.

  

Talking on these things is more of the definition of thinking positively. Now, if we lo...

Max Lucado teaches us your heart is like a greenhouse. Our thoughts are the seeds, and your mind is the doorway to your greenhouse. What we feed our mind, goes right through our brain and prefrontal cortex, then on deeper into our brain to begin to formulate our thoughts. Our heart is the powerhouse of our bodies, and it allows us to grow or decay. What we feed our mind is the water and the food we feed the seeds and that is often tainted water or food that is not h...

Does anyone remember Y2K?? I sure do, as my dad was running 3 different banks at the time, and just in my conversations with him while I was in vet school, I recall the somewhat fear he had from the coming end of the world from the media advertised worldwide computer crisis. My dad worked in a corporate bank at the time, and I am certain, given my knowledge of how corporates work, they had blown the coming Y2K into mass oblivion.

So now, the entire country has been under full-blown mass hysteria and anxiety of Coronavirus Covid-19 grips. For many, you haven’t experienced this sort of panic. For some of us, we recall other panic nationwide situations such as the 2001 Trade Towers attack. We are at the same point of 2001 when you couldn’t turn on any tv, newspaper, or website without being fully consumed by the current situation of Covid-19. At this point, you can’t get away from it on the new...

Our daughter has always been a little bit more of the quiet, reserved type - never one to want to be in the limelight and always a little nervous about trying something new. She has a huge love for people and is one of the most generous souls I have ever known, but it takes her a little bit to warm up to people and feel comfortable. I have no doubt that she gets some of these traits from me. Given that information, Nels and I were both a little surprised when she as...

Sensationalism sells. Sensationalism is the #1 goal of any news or media organization on the planet, outside of maybe a very select few. If you are over 40 years of age, you have watched the news reporting journey over the course of our lifetimes evolve. Being over 40, most of us can remember when the local news wasn’t all about murders or local drama. We can also remember when NBC Nightly News or The Today Show wasn’t so heavily skewed to the liberal side of though...

Who would agree that it seems like we live in a more agitated world today than we did 20 years ago? It seems and feels to me as we all interact every day, people tend to be more easily agitated, more easily upset, and for sure more focused on the negative vs focusing on the positive. All of these things can result in some form of worry or anxiety for some.

Technology and media platforms of today places life, wants, desires, relationships, negatives, and the Jones’s i...
