THE BURNING BUSH: … Several years ago; I was driving a major boulevard near my part of town, and saw a BURNING BUSH in front of someone’s personal residence; which belonged to an acquaintance.

“…I probably would have never ascended to a ‘seat of power,’ in the mega-corporate community on my own merits, so…”

ASCENSION: This a word not often used in the Corporate World; but maybe more popular in the religious sector.   Ascension is appropriate to use in terms of career advancement.  As career builders, we all want to ascend to the throne, or CEO, or President, or Division Chief, etc.  That’s the ultimate position of one’s career in […]

“…Today’s society… We don’t seem to take much PRIDE in how we look, what we say, or even our silent demeanor…”

COME…Just as you are.  What does this mean to you?  Come… rather you’re prepared, or not; implies that one should …just come… no matter the attire, their hygiene, their preparation… all…making no difference what-so-ever.

“… Constructive criticism may have a place. But, the idea of building one’s self up… while tearing the other down… may not be a wise step in career building…”

HE BLEW OUT MY CANDLE… Have you had “your candle” blown out recently? Well… just recently, a friend and colleague, decided he wanted to be a tad bit critical of me.  That was fine (even though I don’t take criticism well…. Who does?) He started out doing it one on one; but when several others […]

“…Choose wisely. Our future depends on wise choices…”

CONNECTIONS: We all have them, or wish we did. There are all kinds of connections …the good, bad, and the ugly. There’s the honest kind, the crooked, and those who sit under the “shade-tree.” Then, there’s the Government big shot, or the political-upstart, or The Bishop and the Pawn.  Think about this:  How important is […]

“…One of the “very best investments” I’ve ever made… came to me in the middle of the night…via the dream process…”

“…The fact that I would know all the potential solutions, relative to the given issue, gives, me, the In-S-T-B guy, the advantage…”

THINK?… INSIDE OR OUTSIDE THE BOX. Which is more important to the company owners? Which do you prefer? For me…I prefer In-S-T-B… and here’s why. When thinking Out-S-T-B… a business craze of the 50-60’s, is best used, when the company brings in an “outsider” who is totally unfamiliar with your industry. This outsider is given […]

“… No matter how ‘high-fa’luttin’ you are in your career; someone is higher than you…”

RESISTANCE: I’ve always had a bit of resistance in my blood. The bottom line is this: I just have trouble with people telling me what to do. It’s not that I anti-authority…nah… I just resist being “bossed around.” Sorry. I remember as a 9th grader, the teacher advised me that I ought to start my […]
