The epistle to the Colossians The epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Colossians begins with one of Paul’s standard greetings. This greeting is followed by a prayer of thanksgiving because he had heard from Epaphras whom he had sent to Colossae. He had preached the gospel to the Colossians and had, at a later time, told Paul about their faith and love for others that came from their storehouse of...  Read More

Paul uses a standard format salutation greeting in this letter. It is not very different from the greetings used in letters to the Galatians, the Philippians, the Colossians, the Thessalonians or even Timothy for that matter. The opening section announces our election, twice, and that God reveals to us the mysteries of His will. If we are sensitive to His Spirit, we need not wonder about His...  Read More

Currently, passwords are total chaos. In fact, most people have terrible passwords that are easy for hackers to guess. Even worse, many people use the same password for all their accounts, and they haven’t changed their password for years. So all a hacker has to do is guess the password once and they’ll have access to the user’s entire life. And while we were all advised to change our passwords...  Read More

ConAgra stock recently dropped 7.4% or about $1 Billion in market capitalization when it reduced its earnings forecast from $.60 to $.55/share. Had their previous forecast been a $.55-$.60/earnings per share range instead of a firm $.60/share, no one would have noticed. Learn from this. Switch from single-point to range forecasting now. The issue is not that people lie in their forecasts (though...  Read More

In 2013 Professor Sugata Mitra outlined his plan for a "School In The Cloud".

A March 5, 2014 Forbes article, The Psychology and Philosophy of Branding, Marketing, Needs and Actions , says “Customers build brands, not companies.” Really? Flawed logic While I agree with the author’s premise that lessons learned from Maslow and Aristotle about human behavior can dramatically improve brand creation and development, I don’t believe that customers build brands. If that...  Read More

Unless you have a good excuse, not including "I can't travel that far to an acting job" with little time to find a replacement, you'll be sacked (from an acting agency) if you don't show up for a job.  Read More

In 1968 Mr Fletcher took me aside and told me that if I was really serious about a career in physics then I really needed a slide rule. (Or slipstick in the US). He was wrong. Mr Fletcher hadn't anticipated the rise of the calculator. And the personal computer was the stuff of science fiction.  Read More

My husband Alex and I just returned from a perfect vacation in the renowned Galapagos Islands of Ecuador. If you haven’t made this trip, put it on your bucket list. We swam with the giant sea turtles and iguanas, cavorted with playful sea lions, and snapped photos of the famous blue-footed boobies—it was pure heaven. We also met fluffy white Nazca boobies and red-wattled magnificent...  Read More

Executives, managers, the business and popular press all tend to make the same false assumption about the future of technological change. Every time a new product category is introduced, they assume that the older category will soon cease to exist. But that’s not the way it works. The hottest new breakthrough technologies do not necessarily replace older ones. Instead, they often coexist side by...  Read More

Philosophy by a conscious, rational disciplined process of thought and scrupulous deliberation – or let your subconscious accumulate a junk heap of unwarranted conclusions, false generalizations, undefined wishes, doubts and fears. Thrown together by chance, but integrated by your subconscious into a kind of mongrel philosophy and fused into a single weight: self-doubt like a ball and chain where...  Read More

In the vast majority of situations the best approach to executive onboarding is for a new leader to converge into the organization before trying to evolve it. This would be a particularly good approach for Bob McDonald, who has grown up in organizations with high-performance, empowering, collaborative cultures - the United States Army and Procter & Gamble. But the situation at the Veterans...  Read More

Janine Moon /June 26, 2014 If--after reading last week's post--you decided that you really aren't walking your career talk, maybe you also decided that you'd like to start. Likely you considered some of these ‘renter’ behaviors: you aren't paying to upgrade your skills, you aren't seeking valuable opportunities, you aren't recruiting mentors, you haven't considered a professional upgrade...  Read More

Ron Paul And Rand Paul Defy That Which Is Keeping Big Government Big By Ralph Benko We citizens sense that we are being lied to by those in authority. We can’t quite put our finger on it. We are right, though. Let me guide your finger to the spot. The biggest lie that Big Government, Big Business, and Big Media are telling us is that we are still at Big War. Big War is the ultimate ...  Read More

These words strike fear into the hearts of CEOs and salespeople like no others. The reality is that this is the one statement we should long to hear. Why? Because it opens the door to negotiation. Now if you’re not an experienced negotiator I suggest that you take some classes, read some books, do whatever you need to do to develop this skill. It’s one that will serve you well, not only in your...  Read More

Guess what’s the next focus of the so-called “tea party” anarchists in Washington? They want to heave overboard an agency that creates jobs for Americans, doesn’t cost the taxpayers a dime and actually produced $1 billion in income for the U.S. Treasury last year. I’m talking about the Export-Import Bank, which was created in 1934. It helps U.S. businesses compete by providing loan guarantees to...  Read More

Classic film can be accomplished by breasoning out and turning over breasonings to reveal the true state of shooting, colour-grading, acting, writing, music, and art, lighting, wardrobe and make-up, and these differed from, and the same for seen-as versions for these.  Read More

Post-Nationalism, a purported big A of 50 As argues for mistakes of nationalist (where nationalist is defined as having a single point of leadership) constructions of anti-nationalists, etc. being corrected with anti-laziness and activity (e.g building houses) as it's aim. Nationalism is defined as what much of pop culture is in terms of (where art imitates life and life imitates art), so...  Read More
