What institutions have men created that women don’t encroach, break apart, or both?

on November 7, 2018 in Blog

When I was in junior high school, Philadelphia’s Central High School for boys went co-ed. Its former sister school, Girls’ High, across the street remains all female. I was in the first class that included girls all four years. Around the same time, Columbia College went co-ed. Barnard College across the street remains all female. The cub scouts and boy scouts of America became co-ed this year. Girl scouts remains[…] Keep reading →

099: Jethro Jones: No Excuse Stewardship

on October 26, 2018 in Blog

Stewardship is Jethro’s core message, as I heard—of his community, especially children in it, his country, and the natural world we share. This world is a beautiful, abundant gift we could wreck if we don’t steward it as we know we can. He cares about being an effective steward—not just talk but action. Wait until you hear this Alaskan’s commitment to live by this value. WARNING: if you’re full of[…] Keep reading →

See me in Los Angeles in November/December

on October 15, 2018 in Blog

As I’ve been invited to an event called the Summit, I’m going to Los Angeles in early November. That event ends November 5.

I’m scheduled to give a couple talks that week at USC and it looks like I’ll give another at a private corporation the next week in[…] Keep reading →

Institutions like Inc. have been more conservative, but as one reader wrote, NYU is[…] Keep reading →

Should I write on more controversial issues?

on September 22, 2018 in Blog, Choosing/Decision-Making

I mostly write about leadership, education, learning leadership, fitness, personal growth, the environment, and a few related topics. Most people who talk to me in person know a few topics I talk a lot about but hold back on writing about. They’re controversial and people with different views are powerful and vindictive—politics, especially identity politics, obesity, sexuality, sexual equality, attraction and dating, and a few others. With part of my[…] Keep reading →

Should I raise funds and market more?

on September 21, 2018 in Blog, Choosing/Decision-Making

I chose to write a post every day, then to write a book, then to start a podcast because 1) enough people told me they found my voice unique and valuable, 2) I felt I had things worth saying, and 3) I would grow from the experience. Outside of launching Leadership Step by Step, I haven’t tried to market that much. That launch wasn’t that big, though it took me[…] Keep reading →
