We’re starting a new program series later this month. Round table discussions about using creativity and performance skills in other businesses and daily life. I’ll be inviting friends of mine that work in a variety of industries to participate and we’ll be taking questions from you, the audience, as well. Afterward the video will be available on my YouTube channel so you can watch it whenever you want. Not subscribed to my channel yet? Click below:
The first discussion will be on
It will cover Creativity in your Daily Life and will feature my oldest friends from high school and college who have gone off to the four winds when it comes to careers:
- Scott Sanford – IT specialist for the financial industry.
- Dean Ethington – Graphic Designer and web developer for Oakley.
- Dan Zarzana – Manager at an entertainment payroll company.
- Jeff Garvin – Author and musician.
All of them have very different perspectives on how they use the creative sides of their brains and I’m looking forward to a lively conversation.
We’ll be doing these roundtables once a month in the 3rd week of the month so stay tuned for more!
See you next time!

Rene and I were just talking about this, and actually have been talking about this in a general sense for years now – how things are marketed to women.
Big thanks to author/actress/blogger Kimberly Rae Miller for the find!
See you next time!
I was watching the Discovery Channel, I forget which show, and they were talking about near Earth objects or NEO’s. NEO’s are the objects that are flying through space and have the possibility of hitting the Earth. These objects range in size from a pebble to hundreds on miles wide. The NEO’s that are tracked are the ones that are considered dangerous. There are thousands of these objects being tracked at all times. The scientist who was being interviewed said that even though there are thousands of these objects being tracked there are thousands, perhaps even hundreds of thousands of these objects that we aren’t tracking.
The scary fact of it all is that there could be an object over 600 miles wide that might be headed directly at the Earth right now and if it is, and we aren’t tracking it, we would have four minutes of warning before it struck the Earth and effectively wiped all life off of the planet.
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, not because I’m obsessed with the idea of being killed by a rock falling from space but because of the phenomenon that I’m becoming way too aware off lately – Nanny Laws.
We are currently living in a society where our leaders keep doing things to make us feel more safe when, in actuality, there is nothing that can keep us safe.
- Security checks at the airport are great for seeing what’s in passenger baggage, but no one checks the cargo placed in stowage – THIS IS ON YOUR FLIGHT! If someone REALLY wants to blow up a plane all they have to do is ship it.
- Dog Bans and Breed Specific Legislation do not accomplish the goal of stopping dog bites, once one breed is gone the other dogs pick up the slack. This has lead to over 70 breeds of dog being banned or restricted in some way in Italy and multiple dog bans across the United States.
- Gun Laws
- Tobacco Laws
- The Drug War
All of these only punish the law abiding, the people who want these things will have them anyway – only the innocent get punished.
And for what? What are we really being kept safe from? When does personal responsibility become a factor? I would actually like to see a return of personal responsibility!
Why does AIG get a bail out for being a failure? I wouldn’t. You wouldn’t. And I don’t agree that any company is too large to fail. In fact I would argue that some companies have become too large to succeed!
This is really just the beginning of a much bigger conversation and I would like to encourage you to comment so we can continue the discussion.
Think of all the stuff you would cease to care about if you knew it was your last four minutes and then tell me what’s really important to you.
