Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
RoboCop. If you were around in the 80′s, you most likely remember the original movie.
Alex Murphy, mortally wounded in the line of duty, was given a second chance to “live” and serve the citizens of a decaying Detroit. They’ve now remade the movie.
As I loved the original RoboCop, I was thrilled to know the remake was happening. That’s why I took the opportunity to watch the new film.
The 2014 RoboCop remake still focuses on Alex Murphy as he makes a transition to RoboCop. However, the movie takes a drastic turn in how Alex becomes RoboCop and the tone of the film is much lighter.
Throughout the movie, I couldn’t help but see leadership lessons. From Alex’s struggle to the villains, there is plenty we can learn.
Warning: There are movie spoilers ahead if you plan to see the new RoboCop.
Do you remember Gumby?
You know…the adorable green clay figure who could bend and stretch every which way. Made famous by the (at the time) amazing power of stop motion clay animation.
The general premise of the show, which ran for thirty-five years, was that he always managed to find himself in a difficult situation. But, of course, he stretched and bent his way out of every predicament.
That’s who The Container Store wants their people to be. One of their mantras is “Be Gumby.”
It’s a memorable way to remind their team members to bend over backwards for their customers and each other.
I’d never heard of The Container Store until a recent trip to Indianapolis. As the name suggests, it’s an entire store dedicated to…you guessed it, containers. (Men, I know, this makes no sense to us, but my wife loves it. And I will admit there are a few cool things in there…you know, manly type things.)
The movie, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty really got me thinking. My wife and I decided to make it a date night Tuesday and check out a movie at the cheap theater.
We had the choice of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire or The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. Having seen Catching Fire (and it’s a fantastic movie if you’re wondering) and knowing Pam wouldn’t watch it, we decided on The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.
Walter Mitty has a simplistic storyline. One, I believe, most of us can relate to.
IMDB begins to describe the movie as the story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action.
One of the facts that I hope I’ve gotten through to you is that regardless of what you think, we all have the same amount of time in our days. 24 hours. No more, no less.
I preface this blog post with that fact because many people have wondered how I find time to create blog content on a regular basis.
Today, that’s what I want to share with you. My so-called secret to writing blog posts.
There’s no magic bullet that helps me create new blog posts. There’s nothing special you need to do either to be the next blogger who shares regularly.
You’re not the Flash and move at superhuman speed. Luckily that’s not the secret sauce to writing regularly. Though having the power to write at superhuman speed would be awesome!
