I am not upset
I just can’t talk about it
Without my voice raised

Monday, December 30, 2013

1,852

Keep it big picture
But come up with things to do
Always clear as mud

Sunday, December 29, 2013

1,851

Capital cities
Include capitol buildings
Or is that reversed?

The footnotes reveal
All the human error in
The inspired book

The holidays are
A time for slowing down and
Renewing passion

Thursday, December 26, 2013

1,848

Listen carefully
And address what they’re feeling
Not just what they say

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

1,847

It is a challenge
Finding time for everything
That has to get done

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

1,846

What if they’re lying
Will it change what you’re planning?
Or just surprise them?

Monday, December 23, 2013

1,845

Remember you choose
Whether you will get angry
Or just laugh it off

Sunday, December 22, 2013

1,844

I never rehearse
It all happens for the best
People never lie

Saturday, December 21, 2013

1,843

Now that I’m in charge
Everything will start to change
For better or worse

Friday, December 20, 2013

1,842

I’m working from home
In some ways it is better
In some ways it’s worse

Thursday, December 19, 2013

1,841

The headaches still come
With increasing frequency
Try not to wonder

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

1,840

Take the day off but
Still stay connected. It’s the
Way business works

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

1,839

Thank you for trying
For showing up right on time
And giving your best

Monday, December 16, 2013

1,838

Someday it will end
And you will sit and wonder
What it was all for

Sunday, December 15, 2013

1,837

You’re being unfair
Your impact is far greater
Than what you can see

Saturday, December 14, 2013

1,836

There is no way out
Wouldn’t take it if there was
Stuck more than happy

Friday, December 13, 2013

1,835

Growing up slowly
Better than growing up fast
Keep telling yourself

I’m anti-social
You’d think that’s a handicap
Apparently not

Make me feel clever and smart
Not like the hard ones

But is fighting the wrong fight
Within not without

Shuts down even northern towns
Forget how to drive

Need to think it through
Decisions will make themselves
When you think it through

Saturday, December 7, 2013

1,829

Why not set a goal?
Like from X to Y by when?
Read it in a book

Friday, December 6, 2013

1,828

A simple idea
Gets way more complicated
When shared with others

To the fire, your hands get burned
That’s what makes it hard

1,826

Careful what you say
About me behind my back
I have lots of spies

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

1,825

Things I must do now
And things that can wait. Trick is
Knowing which is which

Monday, December 2, 2013

1,824

It takes time to learn
So do not bother yourself
Just do what I say

Everything you do and say
Matters to someone

Not to your comfort but the
Organization

There’s no risk and it’s a steal
And I’ll worry less

1,820

Keep cranking them out
Two or even three a day
Someone will notice

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

1,819

A busy morning
And a busy afternoon
Welcome to Monday

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

1,818

Like to add numbers
Like to play in PowerPoint
Skills for a lifetime

Monday, November 25, 2013

1,817

Did you really think
That it could be avoided?
We are all in sales

Sunday, November 24, 2013

1,816

You are a member
And you are a leader. Can you
Harmonize the two?

Saturday, November 23, 2013

1,815

Don’t know where to go
But know how we should get there
Which matters the most?

Friday, November 22, 2013

1,814

The boss lost his cool
Should apologize for that
But don’t mean he’s wrong

Thursday, November 21, 2013

1,813

Deciding to quit
Thinking how best to do it
Then I see the stats

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

1,812

It starts to feel forced
And then you start to dread it
We all need a break

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

1,811

Just because I ask
It doesn’t mean I doubt. I just
Seek to understand

Monday, November 18, 2013

1,810

This is my idea
Isn’t it just what we need?
The boss has signed on

Sunday, November 17, 2013

1,809

Just let them sit there
You have bigger fish to fry
Respond when you’re done

Saturday, November 16, 2013

1,808

Don’t try to force it
Let them decide when to take
Opportunity

Friday, November 15, 2013

1,807

You can give them voice
The thoughts you think will destroy
They build something new

Thursday, November 14, 2013

1,806

Do it on my time
You may think you pay the price
But I’m still the boss

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

1,805

Apologies need
To be sincere or they are
Not apologies

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

1,804

Can I do something?
Not today or tomorrow
Maybe not ever

Monday, November 11, 2013

Both a lifetime and a blip
Depends on your view

The center of attention
Gifts, cake and ice cream

But I can’t remember yours
That’s your fault or mine?

Tuesday, November 5, 2013

1,797

Struggling in school
Not because he is not smart
He’s not disciplined

Monday, November 4, 2013

1,796

Getting things done is
More important than getting
Things exactly right

Sunday, November 3, 2013

1,795

Why is it not done?
Do you not know how?
Or do You no longer care?

Saturday, November 2, 2013

1,794

This is not the place
Where you get all your needs met
You serve the machine

Friday, November 1, 2013

1,793

And downplay their weaknesses
Even when they don’t

And under another gun
Things will never change

Running our morning errands
Learning how to be

When I only do the things
That give more than take

They are proud and excited
I’m still on the road

A glamorous life

Trying to get you to move

A finite number of things
All in their own place

The head is pounding and the
Stomach is upset

To strategize and direct
Only way to grow

So much. Eventually
You have to wing it

1,775

Another Monday
Another long week to start
One more race to run

Sunday, October 13, 2013

1,774

It starts to make sense
When you stop to write it down
And say it out loud

Saturday, October 12, 2013

1,773

Some people wonder
And some people don’t. Decide
What kind you will be

To let anger consume you
Enjoy the challenge

But realize the more you push
The more we push back

Is good advice, but also
Learn before you think

You add complexity to
Everything you do

Harder to focus

Moves our lives forward

Because of things in common
Our kids, past, and fear

Watch their honest reactions
Stand up or sit down?

Is not what I do for work
But it is useful

But don’t let on that it’s an
Impossible task

One that takes time to unfold
No need to rush it
