Bill Nowicki served in the US Navy from 1980-1986 as an Electricians Mate on Nuclear submarines.  You’re going to love Bills stories…

Bill Nowicki Lead Like a Marine Episode 38

Three lessons Bill had to learn fast about the civilian world early in his career:

  • It’s easier to get rid of people than it is to get to know them
  • You need to tweak your people skills
  • Be willing to be a little vulnerable… tone down the “I got this” attitude

What did he do about it?

  • He learned how to get to know people
  • He learned to improve his people skills
  • He decided that he didn’t “know it all”

Are You Living by Default or by Design?

I recently posted the question on my Facebook page; are you living your life by default or by design. I got some reactions that surprised me, and one person asked me what was the difference. Great question.

Default or Design

Here are the Webster definitions and a few synonyms for each word.

Default: a selection made usually automatically or without active consideration due to a lack of viable alternative.
