The Production Of……..

I woke up this morning to the sad news of Sir George Martin’s passing; Martin, the famous music arranger, composer and producer who played a vital role in creating and delivering the Beatles to the world.

15 years ago today, one of my heroes Charles M. Schulz the creator of “Peanuts”, passed away. I love “Peanuts” because it teaches without preaching, shares wisdom without being too serious and always, always reminds us to celebrate life and each other. On “Job Talk” we try to reach out with empathy and deliver some thoughts on work and relationships with a twinkle in our eye and compassion in our hearts. I like to think I learned some of that from … Read More

Every person’s goal in life is to succeed. Regardless of our goal, we all want to achieve something. Making a sale, signing a contract, completing an around the house project, winning the game, hitting a golf ball straight (I’m still working on that one), or merely being the best we can be.  In order for someone to win, someone has to lose. Did the winner win more, or did the loser lost?.  Is it better to have made it to the finals … Read More
