# The Connecting Glue

October 13th, 2012

TEDxOrangeCoast From: http://www.tedxorangecoast.com/the-connecting-glue/ Relevance is a quintessential need that you must have in order to achieve anything in life.  It is relevance that keeps your employees happy, it is relevance that keeps you in relationships and it is relevance that gives you the drive to do what you do every day – day in day out.  However relevance is NOT a permanent state and changes as your experience changes. This is the connecting glue of our interactions with life, people, work, and our beliefs.  In order for something to have significance it must first start with relevance.  Have you ever noticed how at any event people with similar interests – relevance – are grouped together?

# smooth sailing, its in the imperfection

August 12th, 2012

nothing is ever smooth sailing - in fact the smoothness of the sail depends on the imperfection of what you are doing.  It is the way you move with the currents, the way you deal with the swallows, and the wind that will make your journey either smooth sailing or awfully bumpy. we often try to fight our way through a situation, when in reality if you were to just go with it and go in the direction it wants you to go you end with a much smoother sail. are you going to end up where you intentionally wanted to go? maybe, maybe not, but either way at the end you will have enough energy to get where you want to go; and who knows the ...
