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!

In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Jason's New Unicycle - Balance and Progress

Preface:

These two postings are the story of me and my growth from angst to acuatlization and the son of a dear friend who is commencing the same journey. He is me at 20 or I was him at 20. At the age of 20 we were both "crippled" by our potential and ignoring our possibilities. I've made the transition from worrying about why I can't to a new excitment of discovering that more often than not - YES I CAN!

"Poppa's Got a Brand New Bag"

If you’re near my age you know the song – you can visualize the explosion of energy, electricity, and emotion that was James Brown. Research for this title took about 30 seconds on the Internet. From Songfacts I learned that, “A ‘bag’ is slang for a way of doing something or a kind of lifestyle. In this song, Brown is singing about how he's come up with something new.” This article is about a new “bag” – me and my “new bag” and Jason who is just starting to design his new “bag” – our new lives and lifestyles.

Pacifiers or Breast Feeding - Are you a manager or a leader?

I raised two boys or maybe, more correctly, they raised me. I was lucky – at the end of the process I have “two sons” that make me proud and I love dearly. I was unprepared to be a parent when I became one but through trial and error, the grace of God, and some blind luck I survived. As I reflect back on the experience – I also, in the process, got a “Ph.D.” in management and leadership. I now realize that parenting, like business, gives the organizational “parent” the opportunity to react to behavior or proactively influence the growth, development, and maturation of the child.

Carpe Manana!

Seize tomorrow – if you are reading this article as the leader of your organization continue to do so – this is your job and should be your passion. If you are being consumed by the moment – the urgent - Carpe Diem – seize today - you may be a great manager but your leadership role is being neglected or ignored. Leadership is about Vision – the future – tomorrow!
