This truly is one of the strangest stories about life and careers that I have ever heard.  Yes, my friend Bob has a very successful career in which he does what he loves to do every day and it all began when his grandmother yelled at him as he was watching a television program. I tell you this will be one of the most unusual transformative stories ever but it has a lot of lessons and you need to take time this weekend to listen to it and think about it a lot.   We often say an interesting ideas you learn more here by accident than most places by design and the day it happens...

"Steve we have to hear your story! " That's what I recently said to my friend Steven Lear when I found out that he had just recently returned on a trip from Israel.  Steve and I have known each other for a number of years and I always knew that he was thoughtful and well informed as well as very good at the work he did. I also knew that he was a good teacher even though he probably would not call himself that.  But he is, and whenever something in the Middle East happened, which happens a lot, I knew that if I wanted to understand what was going on that I would not necessarily listen...

 I love the old cowboy movie about Lonesome Dove ... And there's a line in that film that we all need to hear and learn and do.  So let's take a little time to see if we can improve our life just a little bit and actually see if perhaps we can become one of the few that really do what they say they are going to do. And then of course it's leap year day!  Well do you have any plans to do some leaping this year?  Or are you going to be like most people who stay put, fall back, and merely lean forward.  And I would love to hear from you about some of your leaping that...

 At this time of the year the mini millions of us who following the Christian tradition take a special time before the Easter celebration to examine our lives and see if there's things that we should give up, maybe some things we should start up, and very much think about the insecurity of our life and remember that sometimes we just don't know what's gonna happen to us. So I'd like to have a little fun and play one of my favorite songs which deals with the fate of a real tough cowboy who made and had tough times in Deadwood South Dakota.  It was one of those legendary poker games...

You just have to spend the next 20 minutes listening to this program if you finally want to know something about successful leadership and business communication. And I guarantee that there is not one course like this in any MBA program that I know of that's why I often say that an MBA sometimes means mostly bad advice, and in particular in the field of entrepreneurship. Just managing a business that's going in growing can be done by an AI robot but if you're trying to create something and do something significant and bring about a better way of life rather than just creating another better...

Of course the question should be an obvious yes, but do we really believe in practice that today.  Are you old enough to remember hearing from somebody older than you, "mind your manners." Well this might be a little bit of an old school guy bit of a rant but rent is not necessarily mind in your manners so it's simply some questions, a few suggestions and may be a little bit of some longings for other things from other times, And then there is the stories of Gentlemen George, and so on this day can I take a few moments to talk about a letter of advice that he gave to a young nephew and...

 I have a lot of stories to tell you today. You'll enjoy them, at least most of them.  But this Presidents' Day stuff is kind of a funny holiday.  And unfortunately not everybody gets the day off. I certainly don't and most of the people I know don't get it all off but if you are one of those select folks who work for institutions to make sure they get every day off they have coming, you may have the day off. Well are you going to do something useful on this your day off? But this got me thinking about something else and that is the fact that if you want to lead a great...

As promised my friends on this Friday Interesting Ideas will start a special weekly segment that will talk about "trans formation". Yes that is the kind of transition we need to make, and usually it cannot be a transition, it may be something that is abrupt and strong and vital and right now, or it may be something less intense. But the point is that it is more than a change and it is more than an improvement it is more than a tweaking, transformation is about significant deep change in people, organizations, perhaps communities and could it be in a cup culture in a society itself Here's the...

Yes it is the news of the day and it will play for a day or two and then unfortunately probably be forgotten. But it is something that we should think about and pray about today. The celebration of the Super Bowl victory in Kansas City has turned into a day and a great tragedy and the tragedy will affect the lives of many people beyond today and perhaps well into eternity. And hundreds of people and politicians will tell you what we need to do now and they don't know what they're talking about. There is not something wrong with our politics, there is something about our culture and our...

Some of you know I have not been a Super Bowl follower person in fact I've kind of pointed out that there's nothing really very super about it at all.  So when it comes to the Super Bowl I'm a bit of a curmudgeon and may be a little bit of a skeptic and cynic... Remember it's just a football game.  And there are a lot of things going on that are really important and matters of life and death. But now that it is over I really can ask the question because it's a important question for me and perhaps for you too.  Did anyone really win the game, was it was a great game, or did we...

I can guarantee you that most people don't really understand all that goes into Christmas and even many of those who celebrate the festival of lights, Hanukkah don't really know the story behind the celebration and the Menorah candleholder ... Let's start with Christmas and the story is that we were all lost in walking in darkness and didn't know what to do and we're being held captive, indeed we are hostages... And it doesn't seem that we will ever be rescued.

And isn't it ironically appropriate that right now the story of seeking to rescue hostages is a part of the daily news...  And instead of celebrating the good news of peace on earth goodwill to men and women we know that that is a hope in a dream because it certainly isn't a reality.  Yes indeed if we're going to have peace on earth and goodwill we need someone to come and rescue us, to save us, to turn the lights back on.  .. We need a lamp lighter.

Well let me tell you the stories and if you'll give me 18 minutes perhaps I can help you get a bigger and better and maybe eventually a happier view so that maybe indeed you will be thinking about an asking for not some gift under the tree or something in your stocking but perhaps you'll be asking for something bigger.  

You might be asking for a Christmas miracle, a Hanukkah miracle, and perhaps you're asking to be set free to no longer be captive, hostage, and you would be grateful if truly the lights would come back on in your life.

Well just now right now maybe they can.

Thanks

Stan
