Conventional Wisdom-Non Conventional Man

Posted by Bruce Peters

Hardly a day, or for that matter an hour in a day, goes by without a quote from Lee Thayer, or LT as I refer to him, popping into my head. For those that don’t know, he was a giant in the genre of “leadership”.

Today I learned that over the weekend Lee had passed.

“The Pursuit Of Loneliness” or Déjà Vu-Part II

Posted by Bruce Peters

Yesterday I wrote about Minneapolis/Louisville current events as launching personal flashbacks to the sixties. Despite some effort to avoid the news, video images and continuous commentating it all drew me in. In reality paying attention for me, is like an addiction.

First, as reminded by friends, colleagues, and family there have been some positive changes these past almost sixty years. Even many of the expert commentators acknowledge.

déjà vu all over again

Posted by Bruce Peters

Last evening concluding another lengthy day of remote connection with clients, family and friends prior to shutting down I clicked on the news. Some mistakes you know instantly! Time, present, past and future all folded into now. The mistake revealed itself on the screen in the vision of the flames leaping from the police station in Minneapolis. I was drawn in, mesmerized, hooked to the screen until early this morning. 

It has been said that “the more things change the more they stay the same.”

Where there's a Will there's a Way

Posted by Bruce Peters

In this morning’s inbox there were many versions of the Guidelines for reopening. Reopening is now front and center. It also exposes, like most everything in these times, political divisions. There has been a lot of quibbling about the details, enough or not enough, etc. The Guidelines below from Act Rochester suffices as a reasonable summary.

The Choice...Questions only

Posted by Bruce Peters

I’ve been railing periodically about the abundance of advice flooding my inbox. This seems to have stimulated my contrarian curmudgeon persona to allow only questions and question askers to enter.

One of these question askers enters by way of The Choice: Embrace the Possible, a memoir of and by Dr. Edith Eva Eger. She tells her story and details her choices as a WWII concentration camp survivor. Her post war experience, intersecting path with Viktor Frankl, her practice as a professional counselor and her own life choices led her to asking the questions below. Her thinking building on Frankl’s Man’s Search For Meaning focus on the responsibility of each of us for our choices asks:

Winning at Halftime Two

Posted by Bruce Peters

Some time ago I wrote a post describing the NBA’s Golden State Warriors highly successful approach to game “half-times”. Game after game they would dominate game third quarters. My post described their approach. It was a hallmark during their championship years.

Response to Zat Rana Post

Posted by Bruce Peters

A couple of days ago I commented on a post by Zat Rana where he opined that you could tell a lot about a person by what they read. My response below ends with “what does, or how does, what I read tell you about me?

Winning at Halftime

Posted by Bruce Peters

If winning is your business goal, how can you help your team do it?

As you may know by now, I’m a sports fan, generally, and an avid follower of the Golden State Warriors (GSW), specifically. In case you didn’t follow the drama of the 2018 NBA Championships, GSW won. They play like no other team. Indeed, they actually play as a team, something their competition has yet to understand.

Thinking, I mean really thinking?

Posted by Bruce Peters

I ran into this question today from Krishnamurti:

“Suppose you had never read a book, religious or psychological, and you had to find the meaning, the significance of life. How would you set about it? Suppose there were no Masters, no religious organizations, no Buddha, no Christ, and you had to begin from the beginning. How would you set about it?”

Do you on occasion have a kind on ah! hah! or blinding flash of the obvious experience? I had one of these a few weeks past that seemed relevant I should say I am compelled to share. My story or at least my truth of it.
