Author’s program note. I saw the way you looked at that photo of me on the  back of my first book. I looked so young, well-scrubbed, brushed and combed,  so smart with a dollop of profound sensitivity about the mouth, supposing I was  ready for anything, not even knowing the questions needing to be answered, […]

‘The Thing.’ What Arthur Godfrey can teach you about immediate online video success. A (mostly) laudatory look at the man who brought intimacy to media.

Author’s program note. I can see Arthur Godfrey’s domain so very clearly in my mind’s eye. It was my grandmother’s kitchen, a place of succulent smells and apple- pie order, the care and feeding of her extensive brood her primary, her only objective. There on the counter, under the wooden cupboards filled with the essential […]

‘That song really sticks with you, doesn’t it?’ An appreciation for the life of Pete Seeger, patriarch of the American protest song, dead at 94, January 27, 2014.

Author’s program note. When I heard that Pete Seeger had died I was 16 all over  again, immersed in the righteous rituals of American adolescence, which in that  year of our Lord 1973 meant the music and always pointed lyrics of Pete Seeger,  the man who used singalong music and gentle verse to remind us […]

Here are the Ten Commandments for maximum (particularly home business) success. Thou shalt follow them if profits be thy goal.

Author’s program note. As I write this article, the stirring chords of Elmer Bernstein’s score for the 1956 classic “The Ten Commandments” are ringing in my ear, by turns sultry, bombastic, holy and hubristic, suitable for philistines everywhere, a supreme illustration of why we go to the movies in the first place and why we […]

‘Let’s give them something to talk about/ a little mystery to figure out.’ Worldprofit’s Salesperson of the year 2013. Linda Elze. More on top than ever… ‘Now that we know it, let’s really show it, Darlin’

Author’s program note. The lady was persistent, a total pest, never say die, always right there wherever I was. She was. And maybe that’s the real reason I’m writing this article today; an article of congratulation, for she’s a jolly good fellow, and hip hip hurrah. You see, I’ve been in this exact situation before […]

  by Dr. Jeffrey Lant Author’s program note. It was the work of an instant to select the music to accompany this article. It had to be Rocky Balboa’s theme song, “Gonna Fly Now” (released 1977). It’s perfect for people who must work, really work, to grab victory. Rocky Balboa, Sylvester Stallone’s alter ego, was […]

Admonition to myself: 11-hour workdays boost heart disease risk.

Actung! I am writing this article for myself… and for the legions of ultra-busy people who work 11 hours a day or more. We are the people who keep the world going… but to be able to do so, we need to stay healthy and alive. On April 6, 2011 Bloomberg News reported that we’re […]

Umbuntu, ‘We are growing/Growing higher and higher.’ Thoughts on leadership as inspired by the life and choices of Nelson Mandela, ‘Hear the children, hear the children/They are talking to you.’

Author’s program note. She was discovered whilst cleaning other people’s houses. Even there she had “it”. Her employers were so impressed that they taped her singing and sent the tape to a recording company. One thing lead to another and the woman soon to be known as “Lady Africa” was “discovered” by Alan Paton, who […]

‘But there are dreams that cannot be And there are storms we cannot weather.’ Of Aaron Swartz, 26, Internet visionary. Dead by his own hand, January 11, 2013.

Author’s program note. Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman and Aaron Swartz had been an item for 18 months or so. She was sharply aware of the dark melancholy that could come at any time out of nowhere, seizing him, casting him into a despair without end, without mercy, without reason and with utterly no hope whatsoever. It was […]
