This past weekend, I too attended a wedding. My son stood up in his friend’s wedding, vowing to help keep him committed to his vows and to be a good, loving husband. Stranger still.... my son and my colleague’s son enjoyed a bachelor party unbeknownst to us. See, they’ve been friends for a short time, hanging with the same bunch of dudes. My son sent me a picture of their group at a jazz club last Friday and when I zoomed in, I thought....” holy smokes! That’s Paul’s kid!”....

My little cousin got Himself married last weekend In Chicagoland. Northwest Chicagoland to be precise. About 40 minutes south of Wisconsin. My hometown. If you’ve never taken a trip to a midwest town, I recommend the experience. Each time I take a trip back home the wholesomeness is overwhelming. People actually take the time to speak with you and genuinely want to know how things are going. Apologies come easy, “thank you’s” are at the ready and doing for others is expected...

There is nothing like a hardy, breathless bout of laughter to reset life. Sometimes we get caught up in the seriousness of life; our duty to family, our commitment to professional obligations and making smart choices that we miss the opportunity to laugh our butts off. Whenever I’m in need of a good belly laugh, I call my mom. We have code words and catchy phrases that produce instant giggle fits; the kind that make your eyes water and have you gasping for breath. I nee...

Recently, I have found myself in vulnerable conversations about current events. Vulnerable because sharing raw opinions can be dangerous in mixed company. It fascinates me that people’s perception of popular opinion doesn’t actually match my personal belief systems, but majority of conversations with colleagues and clients assume they do. The sociology project I have discovered this past week has peeled back yet another layer of my connection with my colleagues and clients. N...

Never had I thought that it woud have come to this. The aftertaste of my afternoon coffee was still in my mouth. Bitter, a sprig of lemon peel seemed to have made it onto my palatte while I was drinking. Suddently, the average day became more beautiful than all the rest of my life. This sunlight today was more beautiful to me than the the light that hit me the day I was brought out from my mothers womb. Death is the greater cause of appreciation for life than birth.  The orna...

Recently, I met a group of people that adopted the Go-Giver attitude toward business and personal relationships. Much like the Gotham mantra, this group shares our philosophy. It always amazes me that when we give, gifts come back With fall in full force, busy schedules prevail. My Go-Giver colleague invited me on an interview to chat about my passion. I hesitated for 1 full year. I finally gave in and I film tomorrow morning, to go live next week. Without hesitation the to...

We are either doing activity that builds our relationships or doing activity that erodes them. -Kristie Van Luween This week, an internal bank "community" meeting was dropped into my lap to manage.(well, that certainly is the way it felt.) A colleague asked me to "help him" manage a meeting. When the proverbial curtain went up, he was nowhere to be found. Needless to say, I was not happy. I grumbeled all the way to the office. The entire meeting was now my responsibility. Man...

Eleanor Roosevelt said "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people." I had the priveldge of visiting two distinct beaches along the New Jersey shore this summer and each beach and its corresponding town carried its own specific vibe. Where does the vibe come from? I believe its a compilation of various energies, but the most influential could be its human population. Standing in line at Sundea's Best, I heard a group of people talking ...

Nothing gets me more annoyed and exhausted than trying to communicate with a person “hard-of-hearing” and I don’t mean “hearing” in the literal sense of the word. Have you ever had a colleague, friend or co-worker that did all of the talking and ZERO listening? (Notice my past tense word choice) Even when they ask a question, they don’t even listen to your reply! Ugh! I tend not to keep them around. Active listening is to listen with all of your senses. When I have a conver...
