It's one of my fun memories going into the store and buying candles by the pound or I should say by the kilo.  I confess that I'm not much of a fan of the day after Thanksgiving that we spend time being told that it's time to spend money, lots of money.  So may I be a little bit of a curmudgeon about that practice and then tell you about one that's rather personal to me at this time but I think it's quite helpful. And it goes back many years when I was living in northern Europe and riding my bicycle back-and-forth to work and then coming home and experiencing some of the real soul...

 In the United States they call this day Black Friday.  And do you know why they call it black Friday well it's not very important but I'll let you check it out after I mention it.  And this week I learned to be even more thankful than ever for trucks.  Yes and I also learn to be thankful for cardboard boxes.  So obviously those will be rather funny but I believe important stories.  And then a strange but I found it to be significant, one day this week I said thank you to Siri on my iPhone. Well that will be the funny part but please remember always take things...

For many people the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving is going to be very difficult and very bad and so I am praying for those people who are suffering tonight.  I will tell you why and so please be careful. This is one of the best holidays of the year for me and it's not especially about the food feast or about the football or about the following Black Friday. This holiday is about being thankful to God and remember that a thankful and grateful heart is seldom a fearful heart. And often my interesting ideas are of course ideas that I learned from others from profoundly wise and...

 it truly is one of the greatest words, maybe the greatest. As a business performance coach 2 L and entrepreneurs I haven't told them that they had become men and women of wisdom, great words, and exceptional performance.  And in some ways I also taught them that it would be good for them to plan their funeral, their exit from the company and maybe even from life itself.  I taught them that one of the goals should be not to be afraid and wouldn't it be great if they were truly fearless.  And if not fearless at least be able to fear less.  I'm also going to challenge...

And I told him that I would answer him on the radio and so that's what I'm going to do. This is just about eight minutes and I think you'll find it helpful and obviously it is an incredible amount of shameless self promotion!!! But I guarantee you in the eight minutes you will learn quite a bit about how to ask for a recommendation rather than a referral and better how to answer the question what do you do. And do something better and different, that elevator pitch idea is old and not a very good idea. But I guarantee you everybody including you in your company does not do a very good job and...

 That's right I've been a long time teacher broadcaster and a business performance coach and I could coach Donald Trump if he would allow me.  And I know it would help him and so I'm gonna let you listen in to what I would tell him as from his speech on Tuesday night so he is now the first one in the race to become the next president. And I think I know some things that would measurably increase his chances of winning the election even though many people think things are turning against him and that may be true.  But this I do know that if he would at least give a hearing and a...

 In my many years of leadership and executive performance coaching I often would tell someone who prided themselves on being a fast starter, that on Monday you wanted to get a fast start on your day, but you want to get a slow start in your connecting and calling and meeting with people.  Early in the day most people are not quite fully in gear and they may have a lot of emails and messages and other things that they should focus on in your call might be quite disruptive and unappreciated.   Is that good advice I'd like you to let me know.  So on Monday I send the...

Of course I was not on the radio yesterday.  There were more important things to do....I was concerned with some big decisions Karen and I had to make yesterday, and then we watched as the story of the storm developed and did so as I knew that I had some very close friends right in the middle of the hit.  Right where you saw all the bad stuff, they were there.  I was in touch before it hit but nothing yet so far.

And as I tend to do I seek to take the events of my life and see if there is a bigger meaning and purpose somewhere and are there things that I can learn both in good times and bad.  What I used to say to my students when they came with a story to talk about on the radio,  "there may be a bigger story there.  See if you can find it."  So I confess that I am a bit on edge and trhis is some radio rambling but it just might be helpful to you... See if you can find it.
