Entering the post COVID world...

In my part of the world the COVID-19 pandemic has become manageable and the normality of working alongside the virus is settling into the public psyche. What I just said may be a little contentious for some, but it’s safe to say we’d all agree managing through the last eighteen p ...

"How are you doing?"

Decades of sitting behind desks, in airplanes or in a car has blessed me with very tight hips which, when not tended to, can be a crippling and painful proposition until the anti-inflammatories kick in. One of my preventative strategies is to walk each and every day which not onl ...

When you pick up that hammer...

I should make it very clear up front that a hammer is a very important part of any tool box but it can’t be the only tool — and with that said, I shall continue. · “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” · This phrase is affectionately called Maslow’s hammer ...

The reflection of a nation...

I was born into a lower middle class family and grew up in what could accurately be called white suburbia just outside of Toronto. At the time my knowledge of our indigenous population consisted of the stereotypes that came from westerns in the movies and on television and that T ...

"It's all about revenue..."

“Dwell on the beauty of Life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”If the Internet is to be believed this quote and insight is from Marcus Aurelius who was one of the better Roman Emperors that I’ve read about (he was the last of what is known as the Five Good Emp ...

A moment in time...

As the languishing effects of COVID -19 continue, one of the habits I had fallen into was not blogging on a regular basis. The excuses, and there are many, would come easily but none would serve any real purpose if I wanted to change the situation. So my plan is to go into my fil ...

Striving for Commercial Excellence

In the time of Covid...

As I reflect on the spectrum of people that can offer a perspective on Covid 19 I can’t help but think of it in terms of a “drunk old guy at the end of the bar with an opinion” as being a one and Dr Howard Njoo, the deputy public health officer of Canada, as a ten — so with humbl ...

Moments — I've always liked this story and wanted to share

A man was walking along minding his own business when inexplicably he fell into a hole, and as much as he tried, he just couldn’t get out. As he looked up he could see people walking by and started asking for help. · Soon after a doctor stopped. After assessing the situation he w ...

Next time you're stressed,
take a step back, inhale and
laugh. Remember who you are
and why you're here. You're
never given anything in this
world that you can't handle.
Be strong, be flexible, love
yourself and love others.
Always remember -— Just Keep
Moving Forward.

Moments — "Preparedness in life or the lack there of..."

It’s not that I ever really run out of ideas for blog topics but sometimes what I have in the proverbial “hopper” seem a little stale so every so often I fish for ideas, and the waters are always plentiful. ·             And on my hook this time… “Preparedness in life or the lack ...
