Negative Thinking Does Not Produce Results

A well known author was quoted as saying that “The average person has 60,000 thoughts per day and of those more than 80% are negative”.  For years, it was though that the brain was fixed and immutable – that we were stuck with what we were born with in terms of hardware and its abilities. […]

Time to Restart

I have been away from my readers for well over a month but I feel I had a very good reason.  See one month ago to the day I had shoulder replacement surgery and it was a little difficult to type comfortably.  I decided to have the surgery to improve my badly damaged shoulder and […]

Learning Is a Prudent Investment

I have been amazed this past six months how clients who need to reach a global audience have decided it is permissible to sacrifice quality for price.  There are many off-the-shelf development programs offered that can be made to look very good but it will take time and effort to make it work and any […]

However, as with all government benefits, this electronic medical records mandate comes with strings attached. For those who do not meet the electronic medical records […]

Socialization and the Workplace

Organizations everywhere fully understand the need for workers to connect and collaborate with one another.  There has been a seismic shift in the workforce in the past few years and companies are trying to meet the needs of their workers in non-traditional ways. Stop to think of all the information that is presented to any […]

Field of Dreams

In the Kevin Costner movie “Field of Dreams” there was line in that movie that said “if you build it they will come.”  Well, that may work in the movies but it certainly does not hold true in the organizations of today. If you are responsible for the rollout of a new software program, sales […]

Value not Price
