What Are You Pretending?

I used to be small. I don’t mean in size. Although I suppose I was at one point. I mean in “being.” Allow me to explain. It all started when I was a kid. As the story goes, it was one of those holidays where the entire family was over our house to celebrate. Aunts. […]

What Does Perfection REALLY Look like?

I’m a perfectionist. And I’m not talking about being a little perfectionist-y. I’m talking about being a full blown, 100% pure, grade A, unadulterated perfectionist. Don’t believe me? Just ask anyone that has had the pleasure of knowing me for more than ten frustrating minutes and they’ll tell you all about it. Now, for those […]

Will the REAL You Please Stand Up?

Suppose someone took everything you have ever said online and published it onto a full page ad in the New York Times. Every page of your website. Every Tweet you ever Tweeted. Every post you ever posted. Every comment you ever commented. Everything. Would you spend the next 24 hours scouring the neighborhood buying up […]

What is Your Super Power?

It sounded like a pretty stupid question when my friend Stan first asked me. What is your super power? In fact, the only reason I even agreed to give it any thought was because it clearly states in our eighteen page friendship agreement that I must humor him when it comes to this sort of […]

You Can’t Be Anything You Want to Be

If I remember correctly, I think it was a cat poster. He was sitting in what looked to be a comfortable chair with a smug look on his face, wearing a top hat and a monocle. And the caption below read: “You can be anything you want to be!” Now, I’m not just saying this […]

Periscope Tips for Stupid, Ugly and Boring People

Unless you have spent the last few weeks living amongst the chimpanzees, I’m sure you’ve probably heard about the latest Internet plaything. It’s called Periscope. And it’s kind of like if YouTube and Snapchat had a baby while Twitter watched the conception and commented on it in real time. Sort of. Anyway. It’s an app […]

How Does Your Community See You?

I’m arrogant. Slow to make decisions. Unique. Unreliable. Generous. Not able to take “no” for an answer. Funny. Overly critical. Inconsistent. And limited. I’m also a perfectionist. A one trick pony. Too apologetic. Candid. Fickle. Highly motivated. Difficult to approach. Superficial. Passionate. Sarcastic. Engaging. And my headshot makes me look like I have a hunchback. […]

This Post Will Change Your Life (Probably For the Better)

What if it was all your fault? Everything. Every missed deadline. Every difficult client. Every argument. Every stalled project. Every wasted meeting. And every failed goal. All of it. No exceptions. It wasn’t the traffic. Your employees. The money. Their attitude. Your car. The economy. Their commitment. Or your spouse. It was all you. That […]

Are You One of Those People?

It was day one of a four month course I was taking on leadership. I was sitting in the front row on a metal chair that I’m pretty sure moonlights as a torture device when class was not in session. On my right was a friend who I had somehow guilted into joining me. And […]

Death by To-Do List

I do a lot. Mostly stuff. A bunch of things. And of course an occasional “why the heck am I doing that.” And to keep track of all of my stuff, things and “why the heck am I doing that’s” I have a list. A to-do list. But not just any old to-do list. I […]
