Who's In Control Here?

"Humility is the only true wisdom by which we prepare our minds for all the possible changes of life."

George Arliss
Late 19th century/early 20th century English actor/author

Suggesting that being humble is about more than simply not being self-centered.

I've spent much of the last 3 years researching and writing a book about change, advocating that we should do as much as we can to guide our destiny rather than simply be subject to whatever comes along.

But at the top of the list for everyone who does so must be the realization that the real goal is to understand rather control, and that in understanding there is control.


  1. do you still want to hear from people about how they deal with change?

  2. Yes I do.

    The book is close to finished but there is still time to learn more. I welcome all questions and stories about successful and unsuccessful business and personal change efforts any of you have attempted.

    Anything you say will be held in strict confidence.

    You can reach me at 714 408-9467 or at

    I hope to hear from a number of you.

  3. Bill, as you are working on your book another great book on business wisdom is Mark DeMoss's Little Red Book of Wisdom. He has some great insights on how to live wisely and seems to share a lot of your values.
