I went to a networking event earlier this evening. Before I got there, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up some medicine for my mother, who’s been fighting a cold lately. I walked into the store close behind this young couple that was ahead of me.

pondering the imponderable

When we got into the actual store, there was someone coming from the left side of us. As the couple passed by him, he walked right in front of me. I stopped so I wouldn’t run into him and, being a bigger guy, I didn’t want to hurt him. He kept walking as though I wasn’t even there… and I got irked.

A few years ago, I created a video and put it on my video channel. I was taking a position on a very controversial topic that’s still controversial, concerning race, and I knew that there might be some people who disagreed with me.

The video didn’t get a single comment, though it had a nice number of visitors. It even got a thumbs up; it also got a thumbs down.

Most of the time I write about what it takes to be a good or great leader. It’s a topic many of us who write, teach or speak about leadership do. Yet, if we look at things properly, I think we all know that there will only be so many great leaders in the world. Why do I say that?

Today marks the 13th year of blogging, but since it’s this blog that I’ve reached 13 years, I’m calling it business blogging instead of regular blogging. First, I’ll take a moment for myself; few people reach 5 years these days, let alone 13.

I remember years ago that there was a news story about a woman in Pennsylvania who received a prison sentence of 5 to 10 years, basically for losing her temper and doing a most unthinkable thing. While having a fight with her boyfriend, as they were physically hitting each other, she picked up her own 4-month old baby and used it as a club to strike out at the boyfriend, fracturing the baby’s soft skull.

At first she plead guilty, then retracted it, and was then convicted of more crimes than she would have been if she’d stuck with her original guilty plea. Her reasoning for changing her mind was that, according to her, she didn’t realize what she was doing when she picked up her baby and swung at her boyfriend; she’d gotten so angry that she lost control of her mind and thoughts and just reacted.
