The Problem of Sky Castles

  Historically, there can be no question.   A castle’s purpose is always more defensive than offensive.  NOT, that it has NO offensive purpose, quite the contrary.  A castle always affords its master offensive reach.  His forces within can – and always do – sally forth into the region surrounding and extract forcible control over the […]

The Godfather Commentaries #80

Sonny smiled grimly. The wily Turk had planned well but he had been unlucky. The old man was alive and so it was war. The Godfather, Chapter 2, Page 85, Paragraph 1, Sentences 8 – 10 One man dies, and not only is there surrender, there is peace. The same man when hit, refuses to […]

January 2011

So how’d it go?  What sort of year was 2010? I’d really like to hear your story!  Was it a great year, middling, or not so good?  What was the worst moment, and then, what happened next?  What unforeseen challenges arose, especially those that made you think you’d just not make it?  How did you […]

You won’t believe me, but I’m truly grateful for…

I’ve meditated long and hard on what I wished to share with you all about tomorrow’s holiday of gratitude.  And, I expect it will be pretty hard to believe, but here’s what I’ve decided to be most grateful for, from a business point of view if you will.  There are two things.

An extraordinary mission statement

The photos below are from the façade of the old postal building, now the site of the Smithsonian Institute’s Postal Museum.  This wonderful building is also the site of one of Washington DC’s best brewery/restaurants, Capitol City Brewery.  It’s awfully tempting to discuss this mission statement in depth, and also to apply it to today’s […]

Do you have the right stuff to EITHER reject or obey Pythagoras’ counsel?

We considered the so-simple, but so-powerful guidance of Pythagoras in our last post, with this passage… Pythagoras established a strict routine for his students, paying particular attention to the hour of waking and the hour of falling asleep. As soon as you awake, in order lay the actions to be done the coming day. Similarly, […]

From Facebook to LinkedIn, this week’s further learning…

The response to our notice, sent out yesterday, in which we discussed Facebook has been rather amazing, actually. If you haven’t signed up for Facebook yet, you must, and let me tell you why. Then, I’ll speak just a little bit about Linked In, and then I’ll be done for this week! Here’s what has […]

Thank God it’s Thursday…

I wish you could have seen my son Nicholas’ shocked dismay when I informed him that I’ll never make a blog post on a Friday. Here’s the story, and I will write up a second post in a moment, closing out this week by discussing some of this week’s further learning about social networking, next. […]
