YOU ARE Michelangelo

After Michelangelo sculpted his masterpiece statue, DAVID, he was asked “how did you know to sculpt DAVID?” Michelangelo, very direct, said “DAVID was always there, in the marble.

A Beautiful Life, Not Balance is What’s Realistic

After working with leaders for years, here’s what I know: few leaders are balanced. Why? In my experience, balance is hard to achieve because it’s unappealing to them.
