The best way to predict the future is to create it.

Peter Drucker

“Seize tomorrow” is the simple definition. However, the message and meaning are much more important than that. The fact is that each of us has only one future. It is ours to define and design.

In lieu of just spending time – invest wisely. Create your future as you want it to be. Carpe Mañana!

warning: strtotime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/Chicago' for 'CST/-6.0/no DST' instead in /home/sq1/public_html/sites/all/modules/views/modules/node/ on line 72.

Jambalaya - Converting Talent to Results

Bradshaw, Toms, O’Neal, and Delahoussaye – A Good Fit!

Preface: This is the second in a series of eight articles on issues of importance to the management of organizations and the leadership of people. The first article created a Management “Jambalaya” using various ingredients - “leftover” ideas that still have application in the world of people and work. The articles that follow will use the same ingredients and a “fresh” approach to create an entrée – nutritious food for thought.

Jambalaya - Cooking Up The Future

This is the first in a series of eight articles that was prepared about 5 years ago for an Insurance Industry magazine. Because of creative differences and some logistical reasons the series was never printed. Jambalaya is always good and can be reused often. I hope this still provides you with some "nutrious" ideas.

Join Me for some Jambalaya!


Recent scandals and the current presidential campaign with candidates "handling the truth recklessly" motivated me to dust off this article (originally written in 2002) and post here for your review. Read this before you judge too critically others. You may be a liar too!


Leadership for Dummies

Leadership for Dummies!

Since this is for “dummies”. It will intentionally be simply written. If this offends you, obviously you are not a Dummy and should not be reading this in the first place, you big dummy! I do not have the intelligence, academic training, vocabulary or experience to write on this topic. I can get by since I am a Dummy and have selected to write to a narrow niche of my peers. Who cares what we dummies think anyway?

Q: Who should NOT read this?

An Open Letter to our Future President

This is an open letter to our next President. I’m going to express in a few of my own words my thoughts, feelings, concerns, and observations about opportunities that are my future and the future of our country.

I’m taking the liberty to use the words and wisdom of others to reinforce my own comments. Mr. / Mrs. President - please take these comments seriously - I think I speak for many in this country.
