I could always tell when an organization was in good shape. I could tell because the manager of the organization would always be talking about how great the people in the organization were. If the manager was talking about anything other than how great people in the organization were, I knew that the organization was in bad shape.
The way to manage an organization successfully is to manage it in such a way that you can be proud of the people with whom you are working. You have to find a way to interact with the people with whom you are working in a way that makes you proud of them.

I love this perspective from Werner. It makes total sense to me. I’ve worked in many organizations, some really big corporations like GE and HP, some medium sized organizations like New England Power, and Sainsbury’s, and some smaller companies working for the owner. I’ve even worked for Landmark – which was Werner Erhard and Associates back in the day. read more
It’s taken me forever to write another blog post simply because I really get that no two people are the same!! I knew this but it felt nebulous, or casual in a way. How can I write posts about growing spiritually if we are all different? The guidance I give is based on my personal experience and will be true for some people but not for all. No information or way of living will ever apply to everyone, and yet there is a great assumption out there that it will.
I am unique. You are unique. Pretty basic stuff right? But we judge ourselves and we judge others – all for our differences. We forget the fact that no two of us are alike, no two designs are the same. I bet if we were to place each one of us side by side – we’d create an amazing puzzle that interlocked perfectly. read more
I have a Pinterest account and I love it! I mainly post quotes, blog post images, comics, life lessons, etc. I can’t believe all the impressions and engagements I receive. In nine months I have gained 3.2 million monthly viewers and 3,400 followers. It’s very exciting and I’m having such a great time pinning!! I pin what attracts me, things I like and want to keep. Pinterest is a great place to do this because it’s easy! read more
Do you ever fret over making big decisions? Do your emotions get in the way trying to make everyone happy? Does your mind cloud things up with reasons, justifications and pros and cons? Or maybe you just blurt out an answer to end the torture! Decisions made this way usually are not in your best interest and can get messy. read more
Beware of the sinister, slimy agenda that is methodically and cleverly eliminating individuality and corralling us all into groups. It’s out there and it’s happening right under our noses. Individuality is going extinct. Watch and listen – people are being categorized all the time. The individual is a dying species. read more
I’ve been doing a lot of digging lately, really deep digging inside my being, getting into the nooks and crannies – the places where I’m still feeling unrest – in order to finally be at peace with it all. How many times have I been down this road? This time, I found some real gems and wanted to share one of them with you. read more
I was at my wits end trying to sink my teeth into a pressing life pattern in order to take a huge bite out of it. I finally did nail it, but it took a lot of digging. In doing so, I came to realize that the beliefs, emotions and feelings I experienced are very old – way before this lifetime. read more
