Observations, Insight and Reflection Through The Eyes Of A Life Long Learner

Passion, Purpose, Survive & Thrive

When did things start? That is a question that I have pondered more than once over the last few years. What started when I was a little kid watching his father hone his craft has, over the last fifty-eight or so years, turned into a life-long passion.

Work Culture and Damn, It’s Hard

What an interesting and thought provoking topic. Over the last month or so I have been really digging into, learning about and analyzing some of the cultures that I am, have been and want to continue to be a part of. Reading from Ben Horowitz’s latest book entitled, What You Do Is Who You Are […]

A Tale of Two Five-Thirties

5:30 PM: It is crazy. Trying to “wrap-it-up” with two or three calls on the way home, small and large celebrations from the day and (re)connections finally made after a handful of texts and voicemails. What to do for dinner? What city are you in? Are the girls fed? What time will you be home? […]

More or Less

Inbox me, ping me, message me, drop me a note, etc … Do you recall a time in your life that there were so many ways to contact someone? I doubt it. With the advent of, and now our total immersion in technology, think of all the ways, just within your phone, laptop, or device […]

Small Things for Joe

Greg Crumpton Small Things for Joe

Many of you have lost close friends, family and loved ones. Me too, but I think I just forgot how to lose someone I cared for and cared about. Last February, my buddy Joe was diagnosed with lung cancer. He hadn’t smoked in 50 years, but it didn’t matter. He was riddled with it. I […]

The Resignation

You’re what? That’s right, eventually we all hear this. A person you have worked hard with, nurtured, tutored, coached, guided, etc. has decided to leave you. Sometimes it’s hard to hear. Actually, most of the time it’s hard to hear. If the person wasn’t performing well or needed help, then you either helped them or […]
