Final Thoughts

Sutton's Upshot: We are all given only so many hours here on earth. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could travel through our lives without encountering people who bring us down with their demeaning remarks and actions (184)?What does everyone think of that statement? I'm not sure if this is a pessimistic view, or more of a realist, but I think this sounds like a lot of wishful thinking. Like other things, the war on drugs, end of poverty, world peace, estc..this ideal should always be chased.…See More

Week 2.Inner jerk awareness

I think this book came at an interesting time in my life. As of May first I was promoted to a manager position. With that, I felt all the good feelings of getting a promotion; respect, raised self esteem, and heightened sense of power. After hearing about the tendencies of many assholes, I wanted to make sure that I wasn't turning into said asshole. I started by thinking of tendencies of past managers. I thought about what I liked, what made me achieve better results, and what I didn't like. I…See More

Tipping Point week one

I think non-verbal cues can help set the tone of a mediation. As man coaches and teachers have told me in the past, it is all about attitude. Giving your best effort, and believing in the mediation process should translate through your nonverbal cues.I suppose the contrary is certainly true. Going into a mediation with negative nonverbal cues will definitely fail.One way to make sure your nonverbal communication is effective, at least long term, is to monitor your actions throughout the…See More

New Years Resolution

After going through six family Christmas gatherings and a new years party with friends, I began to realize that I say the same thing...alot. Sometimes they are cliches while other sayings are my own. Even at work, every customer that leaves is left with a "have a good one." It seems that when I think about what I am saying, I can easily pick the words that show empathy and care. However, it is the times that are habitual that I easily slip back to the generic unconcerned conversation. My goal…See More

A Blog on Blogging

Posted on November 29, 2010 at 12:01am 0 Comments

In the many discussions I had during the holiday, the fact that I have been blogging for ADRhub came up multiple times. Some were surprised, others thought it was cool. I did however get one unified reaction, "I could never do that."



I will admit, I was in their shoes not that long ago. Just ten short weeks ago I began to blog. I wondered (and sometimes still do), will anyone read my blogs? Will it even matter? Will I run out of stuff to talk about? After ten weeks I can tell you,… Continue
