Leader-Less

Ants are some of the most diligent creatures on earth. Aspiring leaders can learn a thing or two from ants – how to work hard for what they want and how best to lead their followers in simple ways. We as humans are obsessed with leadership. Ants don’t have any leaders. We build huge inefficient

The Price Of Integrity

Promises are easily made. Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. Whenever you give your word to someone, you have to follow through on it. You have to keep your word, because

Be – The Helpers

I was planning on writing a happy piece this holiday season. It would have been about family, togetherness, hope, and all of the things the holidays are supposed to truly mean.

Attitude of Gratitude

Today, I am keenly aware of the fact that life is far better than I deserve. Which is saying something these days. The truth is the world is full of pain and suffering. Hardship and turmoil. Disappointment and regret. So the fact that I can be thankful (and mean it) today is, in its own

Creating A Visual

Before my accident I never really noticed the handicap spaces in parking lots. I didn’t pay much attention to the handicap stall in restrooms. The white-on-blue image of a stick-figure in a chair didn’t mean a thing to me. I didn’t identify with it. Now, however, I scan my world for that symbol because it

Personal Resposibility

The night my two boys were able to join me at the hospital after my accident, we all slept in the same room. Three year-old Christian laid next to me in my hospital bed, and Kyler slept beside his mom on a cot next to us. As Christian slipped in beside me he asked, “Daddy,

Can Do Attitude

People with a “can do” attitude almost always get the job done – regardless of the obstacles. Unfortunately, many with that same “can do” attitude sometimes consider safety one of those obstacles. This brings out the tragic, and actual, case of John, who no doubt “attacked” his work with a “can do” attitude. Most of

All You Have Is Integrity

Everyone knows right from wrong. Right? Wrong. Integrity shouldn’t be an option. Unfortunately, it appears to be that way. Integrity means wholeness. In morality/ethics, it means having a point of view about what is right, doing what is right, and — at the highest level — taking a stand to correct what is not right.

SAFETY APPEAL

We all have a natural tendency to want to be safe. Put another way, psychologists say that normal individuals possess certain desires through which safety becomes appealing. These desires include: • Avoiding personal injury • Avoiding personal loss • Reward seeking • Striving for leadership • Excelling • Preventing injuries to others • Avoiding making
