Office Talk and Growing a Company

I am struck by the realities that exist in a place of work. I’ve worked solo for so many years now, that I’ve forgotten what it can be like within the social web and office structures that exist. Joining the “team” my goal was to experience success and growth and to be part of the same philosophy within the company culture. It’s disappointing to see that this ideal is not held by others, and that […]

The Generous will Feel Abundance

I don’t know what it is that makes it work, but giving begets receiving. There are times when it feels the deck is stacked against your forward progress, that others are getting a better deal, and that you’re somehow always falling behind. I’m in one of those situations now. Outward appearances aren’t always what they seem. With different personalities, a history of a company culture, and policies and procedures that have become set in stone, […]

Fight Back, Learn to Stand Your Ground

It’s a tragic tale that repeats itself in many families; a child learns that survival depends upon running away. Without an adult to fight or stand behind/beside, the safest recourse is run and hide. These lessons are in themselves not too bad, as the reality in life does yield better results once we’ve learned to walk away. But this tragedy with the child suffering at the hands of bullying or child abuse, has created many […]

On Being Human

Ups and downs, good days and bad are all part of living life. It won’t always be easy sailing. This doesn’t even take into account that catastrophe’s do happen in people’s lives. I’m simply talking about getting up and going about the same business you usually do, and just thinking and feeling, “Wow, this is a crappy day!” And you know what? It’s okay. We aren’t always on top of our game. Take a look […]

Get Up Again When You Get Knocked Down

Some days are brutal! I know you know what I mean. We’ve all had them! I’ve had so many metaphors run through my head for how this feels. Keeping your head above water when the world is pushing you under. (I thought it sounded to much related to cash) When you feel like a bobbing yo-yo. (a what?) That’s enough of that, the title says enough – like that song, “I get knocked down, but […]

Bleeding Deeds, Life’s Lust

I lead with my heart, letting deeds bleed me cold. The cruelty of form and substance was told, teach this boy to be a man, to claw and cling for every scrap, this life is our trap and rapture, and all the bleeding a must to trust. Launch yourself into oblivion, again and again unknowingly lost, seeking to find the innocence that slowly disappears in the dust. A phoenix you will be, one day near […]

The State of Prude

from the archives 2005 Had a thought today: What good is it to be a prude? I really can’t help but to ask such a question. Let’s examine this word, this character; the prude. Definition of prude is: excessively (often affectedly) squeamish or sexually modest person. Hmm, not a very promising existence. So much of our society has stifled our sexuality and all the pleasures, responsibilities, hurts and all, that it’s no wonder we’re so […]

Sit with this Stream of Consciousness Conversation

following a stream of consciousness zero equals infinity – you see? no, you can’t fit limitless quantities into nothing sure you can no, you can’t okay, look. with nothing, there are no boundaries, there are no limits; just emptiness so? so, infinite fits into that space, that emptiness huh? yes. and so does our universe. that’s where you’ll find God too. huh? yes, God. He is those spaces – perfect – there is no light, […]

Growth

For the sake of writing! There has been a hesitancy, even a fear or sense of dread, about writing on the blog pages of One Man Can. You see, the whole premise of the site, the writing, the coaching, the encouragement, was and is intended to lift people up, challenge people positively with their thinking, relationships, and professions. Instead, I found my own life being challenged and myself having difficulty being positive with the unfolding […]
