Do you sometimes feel like you are a human doing rather than a human being? Life is a blessing, and we should be active participants in our own story. Finding purpose in life, and taking time to enjoy the journey can be the key to a meaningful life. Hint: it is not necessarily about accumulation of money and things. ...less

The demographics of this country are on an irreversible course towards a beautiful and colorful tapestry of humanity. If you are not as intentional about making your organization a big, welcoming tent to those who don't look exactly like you, who can bring their life experiences to your world, and make all better for it, you may be cheating your employees out of daily learning, and perhaps your shareholders out of profits. Understand the difference between the illusion of equality and the imperativeness of equity, and how making unconscious bias driven decisions is bad for business. ...less
Embedded Racism: A Major Deterrent to a More Perfect Union

Can America be a racist country, while at the same time, not all of its citizens are racist? You bet it can. The systems that impact our American journey such as education, housing, jobs, justice, voting, and healthcare have suffered years of intentionally baked-in racism that has rigged these systems against people of color and poor people since the Pilgrims first landed and started stealing land from the indigenous people they found already thriving here. The Constitution itself made allowances for blatant racism and sexism. To be sure, there are many Americans however, who are okay with acknowledging this reality and not wanting to suppress history, but rather find solutions to bridging the racial divide. This is an uncomfortable topic to be sure. It will take being uncomfortable, and as intentional about eliminating the barriers that are holding our nation back, as we were when the idea of race was created specifically to divide us. Only then will are ever going to become that more perfect union. Together. ...less
Why Can't We Be About Solutions?

Pointing fingers and casting aspersions without offering any solutions of one's own seems to be the order of the day in places our elected officials call their place of work. They have gotten so good at this childish behavior that nothing seems to get done, and we the people they supposedly represent, play second fiddle to political parties and power grabs. But have we the people been lulled into a similar state in some ways? We point fingers and complain about these politicians, but then blindly put them back in office by holding our nose and voting for a party, or worse, not voting at all. We need to be less about belly-aching, and more about finding solutions. Often, those solutions lie with us. ...less
