"Why Choose Between Fun and Content When You Can Have Both"

Thinking Outside the Box is Stupid

Think Outside The Box
Think Outside The Box
Think Outside The Box
Are you tired of hearing it? Think it is overused?

I am. Actually it has become a meaningless statement for many.

Now let’s think logically about this. Think outside the box is a term that tends to be associated with new initiatives, change, creativity, innovation, etc. Now imagine you are looking at a box. Now someone tells you to think outside of it. What next………Don’t think about the color blue, don’t think about Superman.

The box is still there. How can you think outside of it.

You want new creative ideas………………..

Throw the box in the recycle bin (hey we need to start
living green) and start with nothing. New ideas happen by completely removing all remnants of old thinking.

Where Does The Motivational Speaker Do His Social Networking?

He goes to the National Speakers Association Annual Convention!

Tomorrow I leave to go get my dose of energy; off to NYC to be with colleagues and friends; to learn, laugh and network. It’s an event I attend every year and one that I would not miss.

To me this is social networking – being with people. Now I’m not knocking MySpace and Facebook and all the other sites out there which are classified as social networking, because we all have definitions of social networks; mine just happens to involve face-to-face human contact; not sitting behind a computer being someone I think I am or wished I look like. (Those of you posting pictures of yourself from 20 years ago know what I mean!)

There are so many associations, groups, organizations and clubs out there. There are tons of opportunities to get inspired, meet new people, educate yourself, or become better at your job. The internet is a great place to start searching.

I always chuckle when I meet other speakers who are not part of any professional association. I wonder how they could actually speak to associations and not be a part of one? Seems out of touch.

There’s a group out there waiting for you to arrive; waiting for the value you provide. I know it. No matter what line of work you’re in, there’s a group of professionals waiting to meet you. Find them. Meet with them. Spend time with them. And then we can share that feeling of being re-energized!

Getting Involved Has Its Rewards

Last night I got to sing the male part of that famous ending to the song by Meatloaf, Paradise By the Dashboard Light.

Strip Mind divx

Yep, while all 8 bridesmaids and the bride sang the part “Will you love me forever” I got to sing the “Let me sleep on it” part. I was the lucky one. You see, when the DJ started asking for all the guys to line up, most of them ran off the floor; he grabbed my hand and brought me over to meet the girls.

It was a wedding, you’re supposed to have fun. The bride and groom were having this videotaped. How sad would that have been if no one “played.”

Throughout my life I have volunteered; whether it be a committee at work, or a leadership role on a board, or acting silly at a wedding, I always knew that getting involved had its rewards. I met people, got recognized by management as a team player, and have been given referrals and leads in my business. I believe it is important for everyone to get involved.

A few months ago I was hired to work with an Employee Activities Committee to help them generate some new ideas. I still remember the lone male’s response as to why he joined the committee – to meet the people he worked with. So now you’re not Mary the Nurse Manager, you’re Mary the…………………

So there I was singing Let me sleep on it……………………….

Well the 20-somethings nearly fell over when I let it rip at this part:

I couldn’t take it any longer Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my God and on my mothers Grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time!

So now I’m praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you

No Man’s Land: The Rise of Reeker divx

I don’t think that I can really survive Ill never break my promise or forget
my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now\
I’m praying for the end of time It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time, so I can end my time With you!!!

Remember, I’m old according to them. They didn’t know I grew up with that song. Now I’m not Rich the old man, I’m Rich the…………….. (cool dude???) Who knows, maybe they’ll look at me differently next time they see me.

A little bit later the DJ came over, said thank you and stuffed something in my shirt pocket. It was two lottery tickets.

Hopefully I added to the memories of the bride and groom’s day. Because in the end………..and always forget this…………….get involved to have fun and benefit others…………Your reward will come later. I promise.

My reward for getting involved. I won $1

So why am I giving you a recipe?…………………….

Everyone’s talking creativity in the workplace; but here is the catch, creativity happens everywhere and some would say that you’re either a creative person or you’re not. I believe that opportunities to be creative are abundant if we look for them. Practicing and training yourself to be creative is not as difficult as one might think. Why not start in the kitchen?

A Visit to the Ice Cream Shop

I was out riding my Trikke last night (http://www.trikke.com/) when my neighbor asked me if I wanted to go for ice cream. I said sure.

When Worlds Collide psp About 30 minutes later we were sitting in front of Praline’s Ice Cream and he made a comment how people who work in ice cream stores are happy and fun. He then went on to tell me about a relative who took a job as a Disney character at 56 years old and is having the time of his life. Yep, a 56 year old man is walking around a theme park dressed as Goofy.

The other day I received a schedule change email from Midwest Airlines regarding an upcoming flight. Now I have to tell I have started ignoring these messages; every single one of them has been about a one or two minute schedule change.

But for some odd reason I decided to read this one rather than trash it. These are strange times for those of us who fly; you just never know what to expect any longer.

HIS IS BIGGER THAN MINE!

So recently I spent too much time with someone who had a story for every comment you made, a response for every point you brought up, an I-can-one-up-you for every sentence that came out of every single person’s mouth.

After about an hour it became so annoying that it was clear people were choosing not to even participate in any of the conversations that were occurring. If you never thought that silence was golden, this scenario proved you wrong.
