When I was a senior in high school, Jim Glennon, my history
in the making teacher, liked to challenge our class by running
“simulations.” It was his way of making history relevant and real.
He would create a scenario and assign each class member a role
and an objective. And, of course, the objectives created conflict.

A few months ago, I set off on a trip to Mexico with a small group
of other attorneys and their spouses. The excursion was a mix of
business talk and recreation — it was the perfect getaway! But the
lead-up to the outing was a challenge!

I’ll admit it: I judge myself a lot, and I wear life a little bit too tightly.

Last month, I wrote to you about my 95/5 Creativity Rule, and it
inspired me and my team to get creative! We stretched our artistic
talent by painting together at the local futsol arena. We bought a

I learned my first lesson about creativity in second grade. Our
teacher was out that day, so we had a substitute, and she showed

Until a few months ago, my winter mountain biking routine had a
problem: It was missing the camaraderie of group rides.
During the spring, summer, and fall, I can ride side by side with
friends through the hills. But when the weather turns cold and snowy,
it’s not ideal to bike outdoors. I stay in shape by pedaling inside on
my old CompuTrainer, but there’s no nature to look at, and without
my friends, I feel less motivated. This winter I discovered a solution:

It’s barely March, and I’ve already seen dozens of headlines about
spring-cleaning. Usually, these feature people obsessed with
organizing their closets and pantries. But you know what’s often

clean up — even counting my clients’ legal problems.

When I was a small child, one of my favorite winter treats was a thick
slice of toast spread with homemade strawberry preserves. That jam
was a family project. Every summer during my preteen years, we
ventured out into the Washington state strawberry fields with visions
of canning jars dancing in our heads.

One of my favorite pieces of business advice comes from an unlikely place: the children’s book series “Little Bear” by Else Holmelund Minarik. That series was a childhood favorite of mine, and I particularly liked one captivating story of the bear cub’s adventures in the snow.

December is a month of temptations — and I don’t just mean the cookies! At this time of year, a lot of business owners fall into the trap of looking back at the past year and forward to the year ahead instead of living in the moment. Before they know it, the holidays are over and they’ve spent them “rehashing and rehearsing” instead of making new memories.
