Quick Hits are 10-minute conversations designed to exercise your brain by letting you listen in on an unscripted conversation to hear other people‘s thoughts on a variety of subjects. In February of 2021 I and the members of my mastermind group thought other people might enjoy listening in on some of the lively conversations we were having. But we realized that no one was going spend 90-minutes listening to us going on about anything and sometimes nothing. Instead, we decided to pick one top ...

"I'm just being authentic" has been used as an excuse for all kinds of bad behavior. It was mentioned in the comment section of another conversation that toddlers are given timeouts for being "authentic" and taught to "use their words" when they need something. So where is the line for adults? When are we too controlled, too tightly regulating what…
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 14-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Friday, 6/24/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays, …
 
This is SUCH an interesting topic. Those words can mean SO many different things. And I need to do another conversation about how you respond when someone says it to you. I am forever grateful to Jennifer Pointer, Ric Bachrach and Bill Dolan for having this conversation with me. We could have easily continued to unpick this topic for an hour. What …
 
In the entrepreneur world you hear it pretty often, "I don't mind working (insert insane hours) because I love what I do!" I started to wonder what being a "workaholic" really meant. Hiding in work to avoid an unhappy home life or having to deal with personal demons - yes, that's likely. But what if you're not "hiding" from something? You could sti…
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 9-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Wednesday, 6/22/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays…
 
The further you get in your career the less the answers are clearly right or wrong. As Simon Coles pointed out in our conversation, if there was a clear answer, someone would have made it rather than bringing it to him. Dawn Bell, Steve Anglin, Simon and I got to talk about how we approach decisions when we don't know what to do. I would recommend …
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 13-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Tuesday, 6/21/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays,…
 
Have you ever really thought about your process for being "on your game?" Athletes have rituals they go through. So do professional speakers. I wondered how other business professionals make sure they show up at their best and Tracy Martin, Stewart Wiggins and Lauren Schieffer, CSP were kind enough to share their expertise and experience with me. A…
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have an 8-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Monday, 6/20/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays, …
 
We have all had it happen. You're watching the minutes tick down and the person you're talking to is getting up a head of steam. (Or maybe you are the chatty one. I've been guilty.) I know I've felt embarrassed when I have felt like I overstayed my welcome. I have also had to cut someone off when I had another meeting to get to. Helena Bouchez, Dr.…
 
Maybe procrastination is not wanting to do a thing while laziness is not wanting to do anything? It's a question because I don't have a great answer. Having a conversation with James W Haile Jr, Janice Dru-Bennett and Bill Lindquist provided even more for me to think about. Is it lazy or procrastination to de-prioritize something? It could be neith…
 
To answer this question you have to define what a "high achiever" actually is. I'm not sure we did a great job of that in this conversation. Is it someone who wants to do more or who has done more than "average"? (I'm not exactly sure what average means in this case either.) But despite that, Sara Oblak Speicher, Stephanie Byrwa and Stephanie Wasyl…
 
Talking through something to get it out of your head can be a good idea. But taking negativity and dumping it into someone else's head by talking about it isn't ideal. What is the difference? Where is the line? Is it about how it is perceived by the other person? Kashaun Parker, Christopher Jerjian and Charlie Janes made time in their day to have t…
 
Is diversity only how people look? Surly there is more to it than that but looks is how we judge it. Is this panel diverse enough to even be having this conversation? By looks alone you would likely say no. If you knew more about the panelists, you might think otherwise. Rick Alcantara. suggested this topic and as scheduling would have it Dawn Bell…
 
Assumptions are a necessary part of life. You assume your office chair is going to support your weight. We assume the letter we mailed will get where we sent it (eventually). We assume people will do the things they said they will do. But some assumptions are lazy and unhelpful or even hurtful. I asked Karen Loomis, Christopher Hakim and Mohan Anan…
 
Is it impossible to be a workaholic if you enjoy your work? What about the other people in your life who have to put up with your workaholic-ness? If you want to stop and smell the roses every day do you lack ambition? Fortunately Emily Rentas, Michael Davis and Kevin Wash were kind enough to dive into this conversation with me and share their thou…
 
Somewhere there is a balance between being a martyr that takes on doing everything at the expense of our mental and physical health and being selfish, narcissistic and not caring about others. Where exactly that line is, is hard to say. I asked Estelle Poiré, Glady Baradaran and Craig Leonard why putting ourselves first (not even at the expense of …
 
This is WAY harder to define than you might think. Is disrespect intent or perception? Who gets to decide? It seems that the person with the most power gets to say what is or isn't disrespectful. This conversation isn't any easier in team and leader development workshops. Disrespect is something we all think we "know" when we see it but putting a h…
 
This conversation started in the comments section on LinkedIn with John Mollison. He told me that a decorated war veteran said, "It ain't braggin' if you've done it." It seems to me that the more accomplished I become the more it sounds like bragging when I talk about it. Michael Sicuranza and James H. Lee joined in for an amazing conversation abou…
 
Most people will tell you they still have more to do in life. Things they want to accomplish, potential they have yet to reach. But, constant striving, always looking at the next thing you haven't yet achieved is a recipe for unhappiness and stress. I was fortunate to have Cami Travis-Groves, Cyrus McCall and Simon Coles join me for this particular…
 
I never learned to golf because you can't learn in private. I didn't want to look like a foolish beginner. The other side of the coin is getting stuck in mediocrity. Starting but then not pushing yourself into the uncomfortable place where growth happens and where you might fail. Lauren Schieffer, CSP, Ian Hendry and Coach M J Tolan were kind enoug…
 
Yet another conversation where the question I thought I was asking wasn't the question I got answers to. For me, "staying in your lane" means doing the things you are good at and qualified to do and letting other people do the things they are good at and qualified to do. JC Glick, LTC (R), U.S. Army, MA started the conversation off by talking about…
 
Perhaps the hardest thing about procrastination is noticing when you're doing it. It is so easy to find other things that are perfectly useful to do (vacuuming is my go to) but aren't the priority. I asked Heather Villa, Jennifer Pointer and Dr. Bob Choat how they notice and manage procrastination. The bottom line, procrastination is easy. Not doin…
 
You realize you are spinning your wheels and not making progress. Or maybe you don't notice and someone else has to point it out to you. Now you have to figure out how to get yourself out of the rut and back on track. Royce Gomez-King, Don Oblazney and Jonathan Gaev had some great ideas for getting unstuck and for noticing when you are. I also shar…
 
My dad used to tell me that I should never expect anything because then I wouldn't be disappointed. I think that is a horrible way to through life. Optimism is one of the things that bring joy to life and with that comes expectations (But that is a topic for a different conversation). Disappointment is also part of life. We have to figure out how t…
 
If potential is something untapped or unused, who says if you have to use it or in what way it should be used? Is it really possible to "waste" potential? Clearly I have lots of questions about potential. Fortunately Deborah Ager, Dominic Vogel and Daniel Anton were willing to share their thoughts and personal stories. What do you think? Can potent…
 
The word "collab" gets thrown around a lot (at least in the coaching world) and I have seen "influencers" take advantage of people's dreams by suggesting them. But collaboration is also a great way to make something better than the sum of the parts. Atif Agha, Stewart Wiggins and Matthew Percia shared their insights into what a collaboration actual…
 
Being polished is good. Being slick is slimy. At least the way the words are used in the English language. But why? What are the nuances that would tell you if someone was slick or polished? This topic came from a Patrick McGowan post on LinkedIn about putting your best self forward in the video first world. Sara Oblak Speicher, MBA and Bill Hyche …
 
A conversation about disagreements that ended in a disagreement. There is something poetic about that. Brett A McCall, Philip Tate, Simon Coles and I agreed that disagreements are a healthy and important part of any relationship. But what does it mean for a disagreement to be "resolved?" Does deciding to not discuss certain topics count as resolved…
 
Then what do you do about it? The warning signs are subtle, until they aren't. And pulling yourself out of burnout requires energy and motivation you might not have because you are burnt out. By the time someone says, "I'm getting burned out" they usually already are. I asked Domenico Ciarallo, James W Haile Jr and Gary Fredericks how they know if …
 
The simple answer is responsive is giving the market something it is asking for (reactive). Innovative is creating something it doesn't know it wants and then can't live without (proactive). In this conversation we discovered a third option, creating something that doesn't exist (innovative) that the market is demanding it needs (responsive). It wa…
 
This conversation stemmed from our previous discussion about innovation (https://youtu.be/Q1OhIo2d1io) when Michael Davis pointed out that it is easy to lose the contributions of people who are unwilling to "fight" for space in a conversation. We were fortunate to have Pascal Derrien, a self-identified introvert to share his perspective and Charlie…

Manipulation is an ugly word. The personal experiences that Rick Alcantara, and Ed Samuel shared highlight the darker aspects of people trying to separate us from our money or time to benefit themselves. Kashaun Parker, and Mohan Ananda continue the conversation by talking about how you have to look out for people trying to take advantage of you in…

They seem to be a dichotomy. You can either be humble and modest about your accomplishments or you can be confident and proud. But I wondered if it was possible to be both confident and humble. I asked Helen Stimson and Patrick McGowan what they thought. Helen suggested the word "approachable" and we talked about being able to recognize when you do…
 
It has the chance to happen every time you meet someone new. They are going to make some kind of judgement about you. Their first impression will be formed lightning fast. If it's a bad impression, are you stuck with it? I asked Sara Oblak Speicher, MBA, Chris Thompson and Dr. Bob Choat about their experience with bad first impressions. Sara made a…
 
Yes there is another type of listening to think about. The idea of "deep" listening feels intense, purposeful and impactful to me. But my thinking so doesn't make it true. I needed to ask the question. During the course of this conversation James Blair pointed out that humans can listen at twice the speed we can speak. That means at any moment half…
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 7-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Wednesday, 5/11/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays…
 
It seems like bitterness is an accusation that is tossed out rather than an emotion (it is an emotion right?) that we think about and address. I was accused of being bitter when I set some boundaries around a situation. I asked Sara Oblak Speicher, MBA, Heather Villa, PMP and Dr. Bob Choat about bitterness. What an amazing, thought provoking and us…
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 12-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Tuesday, 5/10/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays,…
 
It's a weird phrase. I thought it meant "walk away," "turn the other cheek," or to "let something go." But what I make up about it isn't nearly as interesting as being able to ask other people what they think. Eric James Smith, Stephanie Byrwa and Simon Coles provide amazing insights into not only what it means to be a better human but actually how…
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 9-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Monday, 5/9/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays, ca…
 
This conversation brought to light how differently humans react when they realize someone isn't trustworthy. Should you talk to them about it? Just walk away? Look at what it is about you that makes you lie-to-able (how's that for a word)? I asked Estelle Poiré, Alvaro Peralta and Coach M J Tolan how they handled untrustworthy people. Do you agree …
 
Welcome back to another edition, another season of MLB DFS Quick Hits. Today we have a 13-game main slate to preview. We will go over weather, totals, plays, and more to get your MLB DFS lineups ready. KC Bubba breaks down the DFS slate for Friday, 5/6/22. Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays, c…
 
It's a word that gets tossed around a lot. Accountability partners. Accountability coaches. Accountability groups. We can be accountable to ourselves, to others, to a higher power. There can be a lack of accountability. And we can be held accountable. But what does it actually mean? I asked Jennifer Pointer, Dr Cole Galloway and Nicole Anderson wha…

Bubba analyzes pitchers and hitters to target and avoids, projected ownership, value plays, …
 
I am clearly the odd ball in this group. Taking time off, decompressing and not having my brain remind me that there is work piling up is hard for me. Fortunately I had three people on this panel, Jane Dolente, Jeff Mangum and JC Glick, LTC (R), U.S. Army, MA, who had some tips for how they handle it. Although to be fair, I will likely never be as …
