Oh no, I might officially be old!

I’m Worcationing this week. It’s a working vacation; the weather is cooperating by being crappy. But the sun did come out yesterday afternoon; so I decided to attended the concert in the park; at the Windmill. It was a 4th of July tribute – a show tunes extravaganza; music from the 70’s.  That would be the 1770’s. Now being on the tail end of the baby boom I noticed something. Other than the children who were dragged there by mom, dad, or grams and gramps, I think I was the youngest in attendance. I’m in my 40’s. I saw no teens, tweens, twenty or thirty-somethings. None to be found. Being young at heart I instantly got depressed. I might officially be old; attending the concert in the park with the……..with the……………..with the…………….OLD PEOPLE!!!!!!! But wait, I rode my bicycle there. That makes me young. I didn’t show up with my aluminum webbed lawn …

Forget about yesterday's news. Today's news isn't even important.

Yesterday’s news. A phrase most of us are familiar with it. A company comes up with a great product. Someone does a great deed. Someone else accomplishes a great feat. Oh that was yesterday’s news. Oh, that was so 2008, 1996 or 1983. Yesterday I got reminded how fast the world is moving and how one big event got lost in the shadow of another big event. Yes, my mother’s birthday got lost in the news of the death of two great stars – Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson. Darkman III: Die Darkman Die movies But what about my mother? She brought me into the world! Me; the founder of Recess At Work Day. Me; the designer/creator of the Meeting Playce Mat. What about mom’s great feat? Doesn’t my mother deserve a front page link on CNN, Yahoo, or Google? Good thing I called her early in the morning.   Relative Strangers The …

Join me in my Rebellion against Service Industry Texting!

So I don’t know whether to call it a Cellvolution or Textvolution or a Textbellion or Cellbellion, but I think it is time for the world to rebel against service employees who are too busy texting rather than servicing. Driving home from Boston yesterday I stopped at a rest area to get a cup of coffee. (I’m still trying to make believe that decaf will make me feel better.) I walked up to the Lavazza counter and the woman standing at the register is looking down texting away. I started counting: One one thousand – Two one thousand – Three one thousand – four one thousand – Five one. She looked up, ditched her phone under the counter and asked me what I would like. I told her to go ahead and finish her text; I would go over to the McDonald’s counter to get my coffee. I stood there for one one thousand and walked away. …

Once Upon A Time There Were Two Cardiac Techs

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow film Fargo move This morning I had to pick up my Holter Monitor. I had a little heart “episode” a few weeks ago and the doctor just wanted to get a good picture of 24 hours in the Life of Rich’s Heart. The monitor is smaller than a cell phone with wires that attach to your chest. You wear it in a little pouch. The pouch is made of some gauze-like cotton material and it gets tied around your chest, neck and torso. As the technician was securing the pouch to me another tech walked in to the room. She made a comment “Ah, you’re getting all strapped in.” The Moving Finger film To which I responded, “Yes, but leather would have been much more fun.” She laughed and thanked me for starting the week off on a positive note.

Just an observation made about my peers

Surveillance movies Taking 5 film So I am a professional speaker. Some call me motivational speaker. Some call me consultant. Some call me The Big Kid, Mr. Fun and a host of other names. There are some people in my world who make their entire living training, coaching and consulting other speakers on how to be better. There is even a joke within the professional association to which I belong as to how many members we would actually have if we removed the ones who were making most of their money selling to other speakers. Orphan dvdrip But here is where I am confused. If someone is so great why are they not booked solid? Why do they need to make money making other people great?
