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!

The Hurricanes - Lest We Forget

"In war (and natural disasters) the truth is the first casualty." (Anonymous)


Friday August 29, 2008 will mark the third Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and its commencement of the drama and tragecy that played out on the stage of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast for the weeks that followed. I offer this - lest we forget!

The quote above was the header to the presentation below.

Success vs Failure - The Difference? A Single Step!

For ten years I taught Risk and Insurance classes at Louisiana State University. Each semester started with a ritual – a survey of the students. This included a request for them to rank in priority order their personal wants / needs.

Without exception, security and success always were ranked at the top of the list. After a brief discussion, all would readily agree that “security” as their grandparents knew it (40 years at a job and a gold watch) was no more viable in today’s world than was the “buggy whip”.

The Twins are Dying!


I believe our Health Care and Health Care Financing Systems are near death. I believe an Intensive Care effort is needed to save them. The article below gives insight into the condition. The column that follows was originally proposed during the 2004 Louisiana Gubernatorial Campaign. I personally believe this type of intervention would work effectively. What say you?

"The Twins are Dying!"

Wake Up, America!

Paul Revere was perhaps the first “alarmist” in our country. By shouting “the British are coming, the British are coming!” during his midnight ride (April 1775) he alerted his country to an imminent danger and gained fame for himself. In retrospect I’m certain his efforts were not motivated by a hope for celebrity.

Benjamin Franklin wasn’t a screamer but he did provide a warning of equal substance to that of Mr. Revere. He said simply - “Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.”

Health Care and Health Care Financing - Murder or Suicide?

Dr. Regina Herzlinger’s new book raises a question that might evoke more wonder than the other great murder mysteries of the past century - Who shot J.R.? Who killed Nicole Brown Simpson? The preliminary investigation suggests it was not murder but suicide and not with one victim but a Jonestown type group killing.
