Suicidal Tendencies

Tweet Imitation is Suicide. Insist on yourself; never imitate. Ralph Waldo Emerson When I first read this line I thought about Hollywood and the continuous stream of films and television shows that imitate the successful predecessor.  With films, the successful original either has multiple sequels (Rocky, Jurassic Park, The Fast and the Furious) or...

What’s Burning?

Tweet I joined a 30 day writing initiative yesterday which is part of The Domino Project.  While The Domino Project is something I don’t quite understand, I thought it would be good to explore.  I felt that way about Facebook and Twitter when I joined and over time began to understand their purpose.  Maybe...

Tweet There are few nudities so objectionable as the naked truth. Agnes Repplier (American essayist) Unfortunately, Reese Witherspoon was too late with her sage advice on MTV’s 2011 Movie Awards show.  “If you naked pictures of yourself on your cell phone, you hide your face, people! Hide your face!” Maybe if she had...

Swapping Pyramids for Pies

Tweet The Food Guide Pyramid is out.  After spending two million dollars in tax payer money, the government (The USDA specifically) has gotten rid of the pyramid and created a pie chart (actually a dinner plate of some sort).  Irony aside about the new symbol being a “pie” chart, is the whole “instructions on...

My 3rd Annual Obligatory American Idol Post

Tweet For the past two years, I’ve posted my thoughts about how American Idol will end.  I’ve predicted who I think will win, and without doing the research, I believe I’m at 50%.  Not having watched for since the first season, I wasn’t quite in tune with how the voting went, so I went...

Branding: It’s Planned Parenthood’s Own Damn Fault

Tweet Maybe Planned Parenthood simply has a branding problem. In the wake of the Indiana government ending state funding for Planned Parenthood, I’ve seen many people up in arms about how so many women will not be able to receive the proper health services such as birth control and OBGYN exams. To be honest,...

My Leadercast Experience

Tweet Last Friday I went to Chick-fil-A Leadercast.  Unfortunately, I didn’t actually go to Atlanta to experience the event in person (I think that would have been really cool).  I went to a webcast of the event at a local church. As promised, I said I would share some of my thoughts from the...

The New Me

Tweet I did something yesterday that I’ve never done before.  I bought two tickets to a leadership training event.  Before yesterday, I’d always talked about doing it.  I’d always said, “this sounds interesting. I should go.”  But what would happen after that is that I would forget about it or more likely rationalize why...

Travel Lesson #1

Tweet Everything I needed to know today, I learned from Louie Anderson. For a period of time in my life, I traveled quite a bit.  I spent time in airports, airplanes, cabs, and hotels.  At times it was a lot of fun.  It’s also very overrated.  What wasn’t fun was when I needed a...
