This post marks two milestones: it is the 200th post since the inception of this blog in late 2012, and it unveils a redesigned site for the future.
While I’m sorry to say that the appearance of the blogger himself has not changed for the better, this redesigned site will help readers enjoy a clean, uncluttered experience.
We will have a few kinks to work out in the coming days and weeks, but I hope you enjoy the new site. Feedback is welcome.
- I am using the Essence Pro theme on the Genesis Framework for WordPress.
- As part of this remodel project, I will be creating a new page on the site that covers recommended books from a few different categories. Look for that soon.
- A big thank you to the awesome team at Optimal Digital Marketing for their creativity and patience as we worked through this process. They are true pros.
I will continue to think out loud via weekly posts on the subjects of Leadership, Innovation, and Personal Effectiveness. These topics are sufficiently broad to capture many of my business interests and give all of us a jumping-off point to explore ideas and commit ourselves to living intentionally.
A few years ago I started to end my posts with the phrase “Good Luck!”. It’s not like I was looking for some trademark sign off – it just sort of evolved over a series of posts that provided both actionable ideas and challenges to the reader. It has turned into an optimistic, I-am-in-your-corner sort of approach to the writer/reader dialogue, and I’ll likely continue because we all thrive on challenge and encouragement.
This blog is a labor of love. I was recently interviewed on this podcast when, at the end of the interview, the interviewer was perplexed by my lack of “selling” anything. No book, no consulting practice, no product. What I told him is that we are all blind people holding on to different parts of an elephant, and if we share our respective insights we’re better able to form a complete picture.
These blogs posts are the rambling insights of one blind guy, holding on to one part of an enormous animal, explaining what little he understands.
I hope in whatever form you choose that you too take time to share the benefits of your experience and your insights with others.
