In the Men's Room with Murph

We are now sure that includes Sha’Carri Richardson, the 5’1” Texan sprinter who won the 100-meter United States Olympic Trials in Oregon earlier this month. Later she was disqualified. Did she “jump-the-gun”? Did she interfere with her competitor in the next lane? Nope! This 21-year-old LSU freshman ran that 100-meters in 10.86 and is one of the 10-fastest women in the world. She says she is “only human.” Ha! it must be added that with that speed, she is more super-human. She said her role model was Florence Griffith Joyner, a former UCLA Bruin who died from suffocation in her sleep due to an epileptic seizure some 3 years ago. Flo-Jo is the current 100-meter world record holder at 10.49- just about one-half second faster than Richardson’s mark in Oregon. Sha’Carri’s disqualification was the result of her use of marijuana prior to that race at the Olympic trials. The US Olympic Track…

Whether we ask Amazon’s Alexa to play our favorite song or shout “Hey, Google” before asking the device a question to help our child with their homework, artificial intelligence (A.I.) has been in the spotlight more frequently in the past few years in consumer applications. In past articles, I have identified the implementation of artificial intelligence (A.I.) as being “helpfully cool”; however, its application in industries of all sorts is exponentially revolutionizing how we both think and work. Coupled with the disruptive nature of the coronavirus pandemic of 2020, A.I. is now far beyond the novelty it was originally considered to be. Because of the versatility of A.I. applications and how quickly they are becoming applicable in everyday life without us even realizing it, the business disruption that comes with them is speeding up as well. Organizations that implement my Anticipatory Organization Model will have tremendous advantage in leveraging the…

Can the words civility and sports fans be used in the same sentence? If the simple definition of civility is courtesy and the word fan is abbreviated from fanatic (excessively enthusiastic), can fans be courteous? We recently observed that fans have thrown objects at NBA players as well as shouting vulgar and obscene names at them during and after games. We’ve also noticed that some fans, wanting to cheer on their T*E*A*M by standing up thereby blocking the view of other fans, who were cheering the same team, but seated. All of these fans were in seats near the playing floor. The seated fans asked those standing to please sit down since those seated couldn’t see. Those standing refused to sit. If you were one of those standing, what would you do? It was observed that those standing were younger (20s-30s), while those seated were older (50s-60s). Older fans intend to sit more than stand,…

Whether we swipe our finger or ask Siri using our voice, smartphones have become a window to the world of information and knowledge sitting in our front pockets and purses. Nearly all of us have access to this miraculous device that allows for constant connection to and communication with the rest of the world, and in the rare case that we are not with these smartphones or other digital devices, we are probably asking the person next to us to use theirs to check something for us. A Paradigm ShiftAs soon as businesspeople and consumers alike moved away from using devices like the BlackBerry and instead picked up an iPhone, a behavioral paradigm shift occurred. We can now send a text or make a call with flawless precision, send high-resolution photos and videos, use an Internet browser to search for whatever we may need, and listen to an unlimited collection…

One of the great blessings of my life was my friendship with Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, the author of The Power of Positive Thinking. He was undeniably a legend of positive thinking. We were both on the speakers' staff of The Positive Thinking Rallies, a movement that began in 1975 and still lives on today. I started as the emcee and introduced Dr. Peale more than 50 times over a period of years.   On several occasions, I had dinner with Dr. Peale and his lovely wife, Ruth. Dr. Peale was gracious, authentic and always inquired about me, my career, and my family. His genuine optimism was impacting on me, and I often said to myself, if this great man is a product of positive thinking, then I’m all for it. He made a lasting and optimistic impression on me, from which I am still benefiting! Below is a story from…

Seems to me that it was appropriate for SCOTUS to pass a ruling, effective July 1, granting NCAA college athletes the opportunity of accepting remuneration for their NIL (name, image, likeness) when they perform their physical skills as NCAA athletes. Or was it? It was the intent of Thomas Paine, author of “Common Sense,” which first popularized the idea of independence, followed by Ben Franklin (of the $100 bill fame) who was one of the principal authors of our Declaration of Independence, that became effective some 245 years ago yesterday.   Several issues need to be considered – for common-sense purposes (excuse me, Mr. Paine). College athletes have always been considered “amateur” athletes. They participate without pay unless you consider they get free college education including free room and board as well as a small stipend for expenses. However, many say in our 2021 world that is not enough.   The complaint is that NCAA colleges…
