Adventures of Bloom & Wallace

Home Remodeling, Moving To SaaS, And Life Lessons

Familiar Vendor Is NO Excuse For Short-Cutting Due Diligence!

In the last year, I’ve relearned a valuable lesson in vendor research, short-listing, evaluation, selection and management, and it’s been a very painful, expensive, and embarrassing lesson for someone who should have known better. Yes, there’s no fool like an old fool, especially when we […]

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 […]

There Are No Stars On A Failed Project!

There Are So Many Causes Of Project Failure

There was quite a lot of discussion on Twitter and in the blogosphere earlier this week about a major payroll project disaster plaguing the State of California government. That discussion broadened to include tales of more failed payroll as well as ERP and various other large-scale […]

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 […]

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 […]

Making My Peace With Not Knowing/Following/Connecting/Clicking Through Etc.

No Wonder We're Overwhelmed!

As a toddler, I took great pride in being able to rattle off the names of all the Kittredges (Barry, Bobby, Eddy, Georgie, Chucky, Sydney, Al, Ralph and Adele), a large family who lived across from us on Somerset Street. Later, it was important to me to have read every […]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part III — The Network Effect

Tales Of The Mighty Rolodex

It always was and always will be about the power of the network. It really does “take a village,” the mutual support we derive from friends, family and colleagues, not only to raise our children but also to help us every step of the way through life. We owe […]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part II — My Heroes

Larry Seidel's Other Interests

My first post in this series was about what we can do to prepare for and sustain a long, productive and satisfying career. In this post, I’d like to give credit — and there’s a lot to give — to the people who helped shaped the professional I became. We […]

Reflections On A Long Career — Part I — Life-long Learning

"If I could turn back time"

I’m a year older than Cher, and we would both “turn back time” if we could. Who wouldn’t? We also share having had a very long career — if nothing else — and mine is still in high gear. But it’s about what it takes to develop and […]

Ruminations On Being Overweight And Smoking

This post was inspired by a discussion thread among the Enterprise Irregulars about the challenges of quitting smoking and maintaining a healthy weight, one of which I’ve overcome and the other of which will always be a work in progress. It really does take a village, and I’m grateful to mine, to deal with life’s […]
