Lessons From Tiger Woods

Though I wasn’t able to watch Tiger Woods surprise the whole world by winning his 80th championship in Atlanta, the lessons from his journey have not been lost on me. Tiger started young, learning to golf at the Cypress, California, golf course, which is only 50 yards from my office building. To say Tiger was a child prodigy would be an understatement. From a young age, he became an athletic sensation and then he became overconfident, cocky, and eventually hit a brick wall. I am a firm believer that what’s happening in your life can manifest itself in your body. So, if you’re thinking a lot, you might get a headache. If you are feeling a lot of pressure at work, you might start to have poor posture and “feel the Continue Reading

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

I don’t know about you, but this year just flew by for me. Thankfully, the great thing about being a blogger is I can recall most of the things that were on my mind this year as I wrote them all down! Looking Back It has been gratifying to see people’s reaction and responses to my posts here. And when I repost on LinkedIn, I get a real-time sense whether what I am writing about is relevant. “To Hug or Not to Hug” is my most read and shared post of 2017. Soon … Continue reading

Holiday Cards…or Not

I noticed a dramatic decrease in the number of holiday cards I received at work this year. This could be due to people trying to be more mindful of the environment by using less paper, trying to save money, realizing that sending out cards en masse for business may be out of date, or all of the above. Whatever the reason is, I’m happy fewer cards are sent. Let me tell you why. In business, I do not understand sending a holiday card to a supposedly important client, when there … Continue reading

Non-GMO Madness

Non-GMO vodka? Really? When I saw this ad, I realized it’s finally time to blog about GMOs. I have been putting off writing this post for many years because GMOs are a controversial subject. And that is mostly because many people do not know the facts about GMOs. So I will share some of what I know and what I’ve learned so far, in hopes that you will be more enlightened to make your own decision about them. First of all, what is a Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) when it … Continue reading

Tea Anyone?

I’m a coffee drinker. Actually, in some ways I am a bit of a coffee snob. At home, I’ve switched from my beloved Peet’s coffee (which I have brewed every morning for at least 15 years) to my new favorite, Lavazza Classico medium roast. It’s not quite as strong as Peet’s, yet very rich-bodied. But occasionally, especially in the evenings, I like to have a cup of tea. Especially when I am cold. I’m pretty boring with the tea—Lipton’s black tea and hot water. But last week, while visiting a … Continue reading
