Who Needs Wisdom?


This is my favourite definition of wisdom: “Good sense; the ability to make sensible decisions and judgments based on personal knowledge and experience.”   Note that good sense requires personal knowledge and experience in order to be effective.

It’s A Dog’s Life


As I travel through my life, I have often noticed that dogs have some interesting effects on people. In the presence of a dog, even the gruffest, most hardened human beings can become soft and caring.

Pessimism Is The Enemy Of Ambition And The Killer of Dreams


Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.   – Helen Keller Helen Keller lived from 1880 to 1968…an incredible 88 years.

Anger is a killer but happiness can save your life!


I am pleased to report that people with high levels of happiness tend to catch colds and influenza less often and present less significant symptoms, (than angry or depressed people) when they do get sick. Happy people generally have lower levels of stress hormones in their blood stream and lower blood pressure. Interestingly, recent studies have shown that listening to pleasing music can improve blood vessel and heart health…probably because it releases relaxing endorphins into the blood stream

A Big Ego is a Terrible Thing to Waste!


People with strong egos like a pat on the back. They need to be acknowledged for their good work. The feeling of satisfaction they derive from praise is like a drug to them…the more they get…the more they want. The more praise they receive, the more likely it is that they will perform at exponentially higher levels. However, if people with big egos are ignored or criticized for their work, they will no longer derive a sense of satisfaction from their work and performance will probably decrease in quality and quantity.
