Memo to … Self

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Ever wanted to give that all important communiqué to that ONE PERSON who needed an attitude adjustment, or just begged to be told the way it is? I am just not able to describe the passionate and righteous intensity of that process!

Sometimes that person is me. Sometimes I am the one who should receive that message. In either case, this type of message is not always delivered on time. Missing the opportunity to put someone in their place can be a really GOOD thing. A slow reaction to make this kind of response may be the BEST thing that ever happened to our Personal Brand.

We all know that there are certain people who don’t even know that they are foolish because their power and authority in business, or in our social hierarchy, protects them from getting their comeuppance.

Change is not a skill to be mastered

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Change is not a skill to be mastered. Why? We can only escort it though our thoughts and deliver it unto our processes.
Once there, we must learn to walk with it. As soon as we start making changes, we only have yesterday for a comparison.  
Nobody has to change. Something about us always does because of the situations we are in.

American writer Libba Bray writes about a character named Gemma Doyle. Doyle has a revelation in The Sweet Far Thing concerning change: “With this power, there is no telling what I can do to change what needs to be changed.”

What is that power? Electric, supernatural, or is it the will to do so?

Even if we don’t have to change,

*Reliable *Dependable *Sustainable

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

The following article dissects communication. Ultimately, it defines relationship. I decided to share this with you because it should be as obvious as a big red barn. For some of us, it will all hit home when reading the last line. No worries. You are still cool with me.

Either way, I want you to get the full effect. There is a word that qualifies communication and is also key to achieving relationship.

It is how a Michelin Star chef prepares each dish.

It is the noteworthy modifier for reliable and dependable service, causing a sustainable relationship between customer and purveyor.

When you figure out this word, please check yourself at the bottom of this page.
