  A Very Trying Year, So Far

For a year that began so optimistically, it certainly turned rought in a hurry. I cannot remember a time when I had to deal with more difficult, willfully blind clowns in my life — with so many crucial projects on the line. If my adventures and misadventures of 2017 reminded me of the power of friendship, whether it is between nations or simply between people, this year stands as a monument to the truly incomepetent who wallow in — and will suffer for — their ignorance.


Summer has broken in the Northeast, and the dog days are looking for the exit. Hamburguesas. Hamburgers on the grill. Cranking home-made ice cream. Baseball. Dad. Kids. Field of Dreams. Heaven? No, it’s Iowa. It’s still perfect.

 Cool Stuff in Wayne’s World...

 Innovation Project

Mission: Integrate innovation into the standard business curriculum. I have been teaching individual creativity and corporate innovation since 2005. Everyone wants it; no one wants to work for it. I can change that.

 Distance Learning Project

Mission: Make distance learning as good as — or better than — one-on-one tutoring, by any pedagogical standard. Am I there yet? No — but I can reliably beat every platform on the market. Want to see how?

 Emerging Business Paradigm Project

Mission: Re-think business and business education. All you know about business is wrong. All you know about business is right. This apparent paradox drives the Emerging Business Paradigm. Want to know more?

 The Music Project

Mission: Getting this to the stage was going to be easy. Not so much. Whenever I think I’ve made progress, I hear the Precision Guided Thinkers jeering, and it’s da capo al fine.

 Change the World

Mission: Make a real difference. Change the world. A little ambitious? Yes. Impossible? Probably. Completely nuts? I won’t disagree. But if we don’t try, who will?

 The Writing Project

Mission: Thank-you, Donald Kaul, who taught me when to write; Richard Freed, who taught me how to write; Anne Lamott, who taught me why to write, and Tom Wolfe, who taught me not to write.
