The #1 Secret to Success … Is No Secret

The #1 Secret to Success … Is No Secret

Here’s a little test: Over the last few years, I’ve become relentless about studying, reading about, interacting with, and learning from people that I would consider to be highly successful.

An Empty Cup & The Law Of Supply

An Empty Cup & The Law Of Supply

I wonder what comes immediately to mind when I ask you how you view this cup (in the photo to the right)? It wouldn’t surprise me if you said, “Well, Kevin, it’s empty.” In cases like that, what many of us see is just that: emptiness. But I wonder, would the cup be more helpful to me, or would it...

When Greed Is Good – The Irony Of Personal Development

They say there are seven deadly sins. There’s jealousy, sloth, pride, forgetting to call on Mother’s Day … stuff like that. And then there’s greed. Boy, that’s really a bad one, huh? That depends.

Are We “Following the Leader” or Following Followers?

Remember that tune, “We’re following the leader, the leader, the leader. We’re following the leader, wherever they may go!” It’s a catchy song, isn’t it? It’s from the original animated Peter Pan film, if I’m not mistaken, but I’ve got a question: Has anybody ever stopped to ask whether the “leader” actually knows and believes in where they’re going?

“Plus / Minus” – Team Players & Energy Vampires

“Plus / Minus” – Team Players & Energy Vampires

Hey, I’m from Canada, eh? The land of maple syrup, hosers, and hockey. And in our national game there’s a statistic that they use to measure the overall effectiveness of players.

“Vulnerability, Rescripted” – It’s Just Being Real

“Vulnerability, Rescripted” – It’s Just Being Real

It feels to me like I’m hearing a lot of buzz about the word, and the idea of, “vulnerability.” It seems like we humans view that as something rare and so exceptional that when we see it, we think it needs to be celebrated.
