If it makes you happy, go for it.” “Whatever you decide to do, make sure it makes you happy.” “If it makes you happy it can’t be that bad.” I’m all […]

  • In my upcoming book, Automatic Influence, I write about a Houston prostitute named Jenny. . .

  • Change is a process that takes longer than we expect. Things often get worse before they get better. Which means we get discouraged and often quit too soon. A friend of mine owns a repair shop on Canyon Road near where I live. For a couple years, Canyon Road was being reworked into six lanes, and […]

  • In my upcoming book, Automatic Influence: New Power for Leading Change, I write extensively about complacency. What is it? What causes it? How do I overcome it? What is complacency? Complacency is inappropriate satisfaction. We think things are fine as they are, when they aren’t. So we don’t see the need for change. What causes […]
