What Has Age Got to Do with It

June 10, 2018

by Robert Stevenson

I am so tired of all the conversation about the younger generation verse the older generation. Boomers thinking Millennials just can’t do it and Millennials thinking Boomers are out of touch. There is no rule that I know of which states, good ideas can ONLY come from senior management. We need to get over this generation battle and start pulling together.



How to be Luckier

Some people believe there is no such thing as good luck or bad luck. Other people feel there is luck, but it’s only bad for them. They are the ones who believe, if it weren’t for bad luck, they’d have no luck at all. The famous writer Mark Twain once said ... “Persons who think there is no such thing as luck good or bad are entitled to their opinion, although I think they ought to be shot for it.”

One of the definitions of the word “shortcut” is, “an accelerated way of doing or achieving something; a shorter alternative route”.

People have stated, “When it comes to success, there are no shortcuts.” Others have said,“There are no shortcuts to anyplace worth going.” Or how about this one: “There are no shortcuts. It takes time to build a better version of you.”

I received an email the other day from a client who has been receiving my weekly articles for years. She was frustrated with my new article “format” because it was difficult to read. To paraphrase her email, she stated:

“Rob, when you use all caps for your bullet points, they are very difficult to read. I send your weekly blogs to people in my department and it would be so much easier to read if you didn’t use all caps! Could you please make that change? Below is a snapshot of what parts of your article looks like when I receive it.”
