Welcome All!

If you do not adapt, if you do not learn, you will wither, you will die.

It wouldn’t hurt ...


It wouldn’t hurt you at all …

… to laugh a little more about yourself and your imperfections.

… to be a little more like grass: bending with strong wind instead of tensing up and wasting energy in your quest to desperately try and remain straight at all times.

… to take a decent portion of your childhood curiosity and candor into adulthood. And put it to good use.

… to acknowledge the human tendency toward self-deception and say it straight, as it is, to yourself, for starters.

… to practice the power of water: soft, yet at the same time capable of eroding rocks, with patience and persistence.

… to realize that you are always limited by your own experiences and your own language, no matter how hard you work to understand a Bolivian business partner, a Croatian customer, or a Spanish supplier.

… to spend much more time on expressing gratitude to the many people around you, at work and at home.

… to provide your expertise on a pro-bono basis to people and organizations. Much needed and very rewarding.
