They Speak What??

Labhraíonn siad Cad é?

Are you finding it challenging to connect and engage in meaningful conversations with people these days? Or for that matter to just get a response from the other party? It can feel like we‘re speaking a foreign language, or the communication link is down.

At no time in mankind’s history, since the Lord scattered the twelve tribes, has language and basic communication been so complex and confusing. This presents a big challenge for many businesses attempting to enter new markets either regionally or globally that are not familiar with the local language, customs and preferences.

How do you communicate effectively and ensure that your message is heard by the target audience when there are so many language and communication variables to consider?

How to Overcome an 8-8 Mindset

No, this is not another fan rant about the Dallas Cowboys lackluster performance on the football field this year. Although there are some similarities we’ll draw upon here. Rather, the article is about you. If you’re a business leader who seems to be stuck in neutral and unable to find the ‘winning formula’ to move to the next level.

None of us grew up with the notion of being average, just being good enough.

Whether it’s in sports, music, grades, business, etc. We have all been ingrained with the notion of being the best in our chosen pursuits. Does this seem realistic? There is nothing wrong with the quest for excellence. However, not everyone can ascend to the top of the pyramid and stay there. Real life just doesn’t work that way. And that’s OK!

Are your expectations aligned with reality?

Let’s talk for a moment about the ‘BIG LIE’. The big lie is what we tell ourselves when we have a bad day, or when things are not going our way. “Things will get better”. They won’t. Things are not going to get better until what? Until we do. In order to consistently achieve success at any level we must take risks, make changes and sacrifice to get there.

Holiday Cooking Life Lessons

Six years ago ‘The Boys’, my son Daniel and I, decided to take on the task of doing most of the Christmas holiday cooking. It was our way of giving ‘The Girls’, my wife Laura and daughter Melanie, a break to relax and enjoy the holidays. My wild, crazy idea!

NOTE: The photo above includes some of the sweets and “treats” made as part of the holiday cooking marathon.

We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into when we started. But after eleven recipes and 12+ hours of meal preparation, cooking and the clean up, let’s just say we had learned a lot from the experience.

What Have We Learned?

If you believe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green Deal supporters, the world will end in 12 years if we don’t start right now to address climate change aggressively.

Ironically, it was 50 years ago that U Thant, then the Secretary-General of the United Nations, made a similar declaration about the future of mankind. He stated that the “Members of the United Nations have perhaps ten years left to solve the challenges ahead of us, or they will be beyond our control”.

U Thant’s more detailed comments can be found in the Introduction to the book, The Limits to Growth. It was the first edition of this book back in 1972 that began to reshape my thinking about the world around us and the fate of mankind. In 2012, 40 years later, I released my first book, GLOBALIZATION: America’s Leadership Challenge Ahead that addressed many of these and other global challenges.

Back in April, I discussed one of the major issues from Chapter 5 of my book, Education Revitalized, in a blog article. Now, I want to broaden the conversation. Let’s go back a little farther to see what has changed during the past 47 years since the initial release of The Limits to Growth. Continue reading…

15 Things You Should Know …

My new book, 15 Things You Should Know: Wisdom for Life’s Journey is all about life, or more appropriately, it is a reflection of life’s journey.

As you will discover, the book is loaded with great quotes, fun facts, tips, life lessons, and relevant content for the ages. They’re all designed to make you pause, laugh, think, question, and thoughtfully consider where you are today in your journey and the opportunities and challenges that are ahead. You’ll also find a few I-had-no-idea and what-the-heck moments, as well as lots of random thoughts thrown in for good measure, just to hold your attention and keep things interesting.

Each chapter is a collection of my own home remedies, suggested actions, and answers to things you need to know that apply in business and to all other areas of life as well—a compilation derived from my personal life experiences, more than 175 articles I have written over the years, and the research conducted on the selected chapter topics. From the “The Journey” to “The End?,” 15 Things You Should Know: Wisdom for Life’s Journey will educate, encourage, challenge, and inspire you to continue to change, grow, and accomplish great things throughout your lifetime and, most importantly, to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

I’m so excited about the recent release of my new book that I’m offering three Special Promotions for early purchasers. See the details below.

  1.  Special Promotion #1. The first ten (10) people who buy the Paperback version of the book, and contact me with proof of purchase, will receive a 30-minute Professional Coaching session ($100. Value or Priceless).

John’s Story

“We help clients get the results to move beyond their vision.”

This statement represents so much more than just another quote or tagline on my brochure. It is the vision statement for my coaching practice, and a reflection of my life’s journey. A journey that has moved me from humble beginnings to success in areas that I never dreamed were possible.

Moreover, my journey has enabled me to work with hundreds of entrepreneurs, small business owners and business leaders to help them achieve their goals in creative and expansive ways. But the journey has not been easy. In fact, as a child I was told by the people I looked to for guidance, encouragement and support that I was lazy and would never amount to anything.

We didn’t have a lot of material things when I was growing up, but my parents did their best to provide for our extended family. Both my parents were from broken homes and suffered through life during the Great Depression, World War II, and endured numerous hardships and disappointments. Their lives were oppressive, extremely harsh and as a consequence, they had their dreams managed out of them long before I came along. Continue reading…
