Can’t Sleep? Maybe you are NOT living #TuesdayTakeaway

Can’t Sleep? Maybe you are NOT living #TuesdayTakeaway

Happy Tuesday! Today I contemplated what would I post for a Tuesday, taking a Mad Libs approach to guide me to the answer. Tuesday ______________ (Tidbit... Tangent... Takeaway... Takeout...) Today’s  Tuesday Takeaway is a quote by Michael Xavier. Quote: The reasons we can’t sleep at night are usually the same reasons we don’t truly live during the day. Michael Xavier Many of us, myself included, spend countless nights staring at the ceiling attempting to turn our mind off.  Restful nights are f[…]

A 2 Minute Journey Along Moon River #mo·ti·va·tion #Monday #spotify

Motivation: Mo-ti-va-tion - The general desire or willingness of someone to do something. Today I ask for 2 minutes of your time in a challenge to motivate you to connect your mind with your body.   I remember my first flight to Europe, 1996 JFK-FRA on Delta Air Lines. Filled with excitement to arrive in Europe, experience such a larger jet, I found myself gazing outside the window for hours. Mid flight I noticed the ocean far below us lit by a beautiful full moon over the Atlantic. Thinkin[…]

Jane’s donation link: http://j.mp/Relay4Life4Jane .  What is a Jet Drag? A Jet Drag lasts only seconds involving a team of 20 people tugging on a rope to get a 757 to move a set distance. The 757 is my top domestic plane for her design, speed, power and climb.   Delta has 9 variants of the 757-[…]
A Journey to define The Human Element (THE)

A Journey to define The Human Element (THE)

A month ago someone asked me, in 5 years, what will your brand be. Not an MBA question nor where will you be working, what will YOUR brand be. This thought provoking question left me also slightly unnerved. What would my brand be? In 5 years, what would my life have shaped up into? For several years I have engaged in lengthy conversations on The Human Element (THE). This is not our evolution to the automation of processes to reduce human error or our impact to global warming but an innate connec[…]
