Belated Reflections For Thanksgiving 2016

[If this post looks familiar, you’re not imagining things. I’ve done an annual Thanksgiving post for several years now because giving thanks and counting my blessings becomes more important with each passing year. As the body gets creakier and less obedient, and as pain levels become ever more challenging, writing this post is therapeutic. […]

After A Half Century — “So Long And Thanks For All The Fish”

[Updated 11-12-2016:

Well, so far, my pivot hasn’t worked out as planned, but then why should I be surprised? First, I came down with the head/chest cold from hell. With three major conferences in a row, the attendant hugging of a zillion colleagues, hours spent breathing everyone’s germs in flights, and changes in diet/time zones/etc., […]

Prep Now For Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, And The “Days Of Awe” — 5777

[Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday, 10/2, and continues through sundown on Tuesday, 10/4. And thus begins the Hebrew year 5777. Yom Kippur beings at sundown on Tuesday, 10/11 and continues through sundown on Wednesday, 10/12/17.]

Last year’s Jewish High Holy Days occurred right when I was celebrating my 70th birthday, so I […]

Annual Reprise — Father’s Day Thoughts: Remembering Jack Samuel Bloom

[When I wrote the original version of this post for Father’s Day 2010, I never planned to update and then reprise this post annually. But as each Father’s Day approaches, my sense of loss increases. With no family members of my father’s generation still living, my own sense of mortality grows.

I […]

Reflections On Turning 70 — I’m Not Going Quietly!

Naomi & Cousin Ronni Circa 1950

I’m turning 70 this week — yes, 70 years old — and that milestone, combined with the natural period of reflection that I always observe around the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, has reminded me of just how truly blessed has been my life, how […]

“Now I Had The Time Of My Life, And I Owe It All To You”

Or, How Macular Degeneration Changes Your Thinking Even Before It Changes How You See The World

One of my favorite movies ever is “Dirty Dancing.” It takes place at a Borscht Belt-style resort of the late 1950’s/early 1960’s, has a musical score full of songs to which I danced in my early teens, and […]

Naomi’s Next Chapter: “Life’s A Banquet, And Most Poor Suckers Are Starving”

Auntie Mame — My Heroine

Wrapping Up My Consulting Practice, Starting My Next Career Chapter

[For those of who got an early draft, please do read the final as I’ve updated it considerably based on your feedback and some late-breaking next chapter developments.]

One of my absolute favorite actresses of all time was Rosalind […]

Reprise: Choices, Compromises, Serendipity and Sh#t

Reflecting on what might make a great list of 2013 predictions — beyond those I’ll be discussing next week on my first videocast — I realized that I’d either be repeating a list of hot topics with which you’re already familiar or showing my ignorance (it’s getting worse not better with the explosion of […]

Impressions From HR Technology Conference 2012

Trumpie And Me!

I’ve just reread my observations from last year’s conference, and you should too. If I say so myself, it’s a pretty accurate portrayal of what was happening then, much of which is still happening but which is much farther along, at least in some (but by no means all) vendor products […]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part IV — Summing Up

The Message Is Clear!

In the first three posts of this series, here, here and here, I reflected on various aspects of building and sustaining a long and successful career. Now it’s time to sum up the lessons of my own career, a long professional run for which I’m truly grateful.

There’s […]
