Enough

Of all the words that might unite us across the political spectrum, the one I have heard most often over the past few days is “Enough!” Enough dividing and conquering Enough violence Enough cruelty Enough isolation due to COVID-19 Enough meddling from foreign powers Enough lying Enough fear Enough loss Enough immobility Enough being takenContinue reading “Enough”

The Appropriate Use of Procrastination and Deadlines

The Great Procrastinator For years the L. in my middle name stood for “late,” “lazy,” “loony,” and seemingly downright “lackadaisical.” My negative inner voice was relentless and the outer voices were often a match. I would put things off and put them off again until I had frustrated everyone around me and myself as well:Continue reading “The Appropriate Use of Procrastination and Deadlines”

Kudos to Teachers!!

There is an old saying that has stuck with me my entire life: “Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.” On the one hand teachers are canonized (sometimes called philosophers and prophets, professors, almost always male, who are initially ridiculed and later revered). Some are teased affectionately (absent-minded professors). On the other hand someContinue reading “Kudos to Teachers!!”

Dates to Notice

24 March 2017. Awakened from dream with this date to watch. No insight as to the reason or source. 11 April 2017. It turns out that March 24th was the date the attempted repeal of Obamacare failed in the U.S. House of Representatives, dealing a major blow to the Republican Party and the agenda ofContinue reading “Dates to Notice”

2016 Elections a “Stunning Upset?” Nope.

Below is a verbatim text message I sent to a friend dated 24 July 2016 at 3:23PM. Fast forward to 13 November 2016: Mike Pence is now Vice-President Elect, Paul Ryan was “drafted” to be Speaker of the House, and Reince Priebus has just been named White House Chief of Staff in the new TrumpContinue reading “2016 Elections a “Stunning Upset?” Nope.”

Quick-Style Vision Board

Management and self-help seminars often use a process with senior executives and managers called creating a “vision board.” This is a way to discover deeper and often hidden wishes without relying so heavily on logic. Once completed, the vision board can actually jump start change in team participation and enhance the long-term success of theContinue reading “Quick-Style Vision Board”

How I Came to Focus on Business Intuition

People routinely ask me what in the world I mean by the term  “business intuition” and how I came to get involved in its application to everyday business matters. Here is an audio interview conducted with me by my colleague Kip Eddy in 2002, some ten years after I began to work in this field.Continue reading “How I Came to Focus on Business Intuition”

Why So Many Dilemmas Right Now?

Unlike almost any other time in recent history we are facing a host of mind-boggling and gut-wrenching dilemmas. Every day forces some impossible collective or individual action, some choice between equally horrific consequences no matter what action we take. Someone has to decide whether or not to treat an Ebola patient; and then someone hasContinue reading “Why So Many Dilemmas Right Now?”

Are We There Yet? On the Record in October 2001

March 2020 I posted an intuitive insight on the 19th of October, 2001, going “On the Record,” about certain global events, then followed with an update in early 2015. Somehow both statements seem as relevant today as they did almost nineteen years ago, immediately following the collapse of the World Trade Towers in New York.Continue reading “Are We There Yet? On the Record in October 2001”

Choice and National Culture Revised: Bringing the Question Home

National culture is a blueprint for choice; it is made, not born. How shall we make and remake our national culture today? What is our redefinition of “destiny?”

Personality Conflicts May Not Be What They Seem

Like many of us, I assumed that personality conflicts in the workplace were the result of having to deal with difficult people. What I know now is that most – if not all – workplace personality conflicts derive from deeper structural issues, even if the other person is not particularly somebody you’d want to hangContinue reading “Personality Conflicts May Not Be What They Seem”

“It’s Only Meat”

The killing, skinning and dismembering of a healthy two-year-old giraffe named Marius in front of child and adult spectators at the Copenhagen, Denmark zoo has haunted me for days. I am still trying to sort out my visceral feelings about this, and trying to understand and share the public outrage and concern on all sidesContinue reading ““It’s Only Meat””

Sochi Games

 The threat of toothpaste and gel-based insurgent attacks on flights to and from the Sochi Winter Olympics could have an interesting twist. What if, in the process of protecting flights by removing predominantly safe products in travelers’ bags, a different sort of threat is actually put into motion? What if the intelligence gathered and disseminatedContinue reading “Sochi Games”

A Non-Scientific Approach to Singularity

The search for world peace is ultimately based on a relentless yearning for the Singularity, the remembrance of complete synchrony in that moment just before all remembrance fades into oblivion. Singularity is the siren’s sound that calls us home for dinner: home for alignment and attunement; home for repair of the universal heart of being.Continue reading “A Non-Scientific Approach to Singularity”

Alternate Futures

We could continue along what seems to be our current path, exhausting the resources on earth and colonizing other planets in the same way we have colonized this one. We could do that and be scientifically thrilled and justified in our behavior from a particular point of view. Alternatively, we could skip into that infiniteContinue reading “Alternate Futures”

Detachment From the Outcome

If you believe that investment in the outcome is the true mark of loyalty to your company, you have some homework to do now. Detachment from the outcome does not mean you no longer care. It means that you are willing to let your ego and your fear step aside for a moment. If youContinue reading “Detachment From the Outcome”

North Korea (Private emails written by Helen on 18 Dec 2011 and 31 Mar 2013)

Written 18 Dec 2011 The dominoes fall – still again. Part of the surprise, even though all knew [Kim Jong Il] was about to go. No amount of orchestrating and planning can make them “behave” in ways others in the West wish they would. (They means the North Koreans.)…. Be on the lookout. There areContinue reading “North Korea (Private emails written by Helen on 18 Dec 2011 and 31 Mar 2013)”

The Importance of Surprise and Trust in the Intuitive Process

Surprise is the single most important clue that you have stumbled into the realm of the intuitive. Often what doesn’t make any rational sense right now makes a whole lot of sense in the larger scheme of things, but you won’t be able to know for sure until later. In the meantime, you have toContinue reading “The Importance of Surprise and Trust in the Intuitive Process”
