Are You Going To Enjoy The Fruit Of Your Work?

By Joe Shaffner |   Oct 21, 2015

As I was transitioning to begin working with Rewire this past summer, I had the opportunity to take the month of August off from work. In addition to spending more time with my family and seeing my first son off to college, I was able to spend some quality time with several of my childhood friends in my home state of Maine.  In this article, I'd like to share a snapshot from that time and what we can all learn about sustainably growing our work.

 

What Keeps You Up At Night?

By Jason Abell |   Oct 14, 2015

 

I have run across this question a lot lately. I was in a workshop the other day when it came up. A friend of mine asked this question over lunch recently. And it came up again at leadership summit I facilitated 2 weeks ago. When the same question or theme comes up this many times in this short period of time, I start to pay attention. What's really being asked and what's behind the question, "What keeps you up at night?"

What If Controlling Less Allowed You To Grow More?

By Steve Scanlon |   Sep 30, 2015

Last week some 60 of us gathered in Coronado, California for the purpose of a further Rewiring as individuals and as a group. It was truly a remarkable few days -- evidenced by its lingering and lasting effects on those who came and participated.

Would You Rather Have "Younger-looking" Eyes or "Younger-seeing" Eyes?

By Steve Scanlon |   Sep 16, 2015

The picture for this article is of water taken from the "Fountain of Youth."  You can tell it's the real deal because it comes in an actual plastic bottle and even has a cartoon likeness of Ponce de León on it!  Bottled water aside, I don’t think the Fountain of Youth is a real thing.  I hope that doesn't burst anyone's bubble.  Best I can understand, there is a 100% chance that you will get old.  Granted, you can buy some creams that promise that you will look like Cindy Crawford for a while, but even she will eventually look like the rest of us will: old.

How To Enjoy Life Like The Italians

By Jason Abell |   Aug 19, 2015

A few weeks ago, the wife, kids, and I attended a wedding in the south of Italy (Sorrento to be exact). My nephew Danny (who is Italian) was getting married and invited his dear old Uncle Jason. Trip to Italy for an Italian wedding on the Mediterranean Sea? Ummm, yep! I’m in!

How Can You Tell When Familiarity Is Keeping You From Positive Growth?

By Steve Longan |   Jul 29, 2015

One common response we get from people after we help them to see their Lizard Brain is “Thank you for making me aware of my Lizard Brain…now how do I get rid of it?” The surprising answer we give people is "You can't kill the Lizard Brain -- nor would you want to.” And we're serious -- the Lizard Brain does some amazing things for us.

A Fun Exercise About Growth, Communication, Creativity And The Power Of Bricks

By Steve Longan |   Jul 02, 2015

I get to do a lot of interesting stuff for my work with Rewire. For instance, I wrote a few weeks ago about some eye-opening research I was doing on making better decisions. One of the other fun things I get to do with Rewire is design exercises for us to use in workshops, keynotes, retreats, etc., and today’s article is about one such exercise.  We’ll talk about: (1) How the exercise is setup, (2) what almost always happens with people as they do this exercise, and (3) what this means for sustainably growing our work.

When Was The Last Time You Did Something For The First Time?

By Jason Abell |   Jun 10, 2015

We all have things in our head that we want to do for the first time. We want to start really getting healthy for the first time or commit to reading a book a month or start making more sales calls. We have clients right now that want to start a marketing database or desire starting to get 8 hours of sleep a night, deepen certain relationships, or maybe even go skydiving for the first time. Logically, we know that we should begin some of these things, and there is even a part of us that desires to start some of these things but yet, simply put, we don’t.

LeBron James, Leadership And Investing In The Work Of Others

By Steve Longan |   May 27, 2015

 

Today’s Wireboard is a bit of a twofer. We’ll always talk about approaches to growing our work - but today’s article also has a healthy dose of NBA basketball mixed in. So if you've been looking to improve your work and read about basketball at the same time, today's your lucky day! If, on the other hand, you despise NBA basketball, feel free to forward this on to someone you don't like very much.

Building Rhythms Of Rest Into Our Work

By Steve Longan |   May 20, 2015

The picture for this article was taken from above the far corner of the music room at my house.  This is my drum kit. Now, I should say at the outset that I am not a good drummer. No one would mistake me for a professional and I have no designs on making a living from playing. I consider it a success that the people who listen to my playing do so with a “bemused tolerance."

The Winds Of Change: How We Can Adapt And Grow In Any Season

By Steve Scanlon |   Apr 29, 2015

 

Exactly a half a century ago, The Byrds made famous a song written by Pete Seeger called “Turn, Turn, Turn.”  If you are humming that melody in your head as you read this, it may say something about your age.*
