Is Christmas really next week? I guess I should get busy shopping for the people on my list! It sounds like a joke, but in reality I usually end up running late shopping for someone...or everyone some years. What can I say? Life intrudes!

50 Things I Have Learned in 50 Laps Around The Sun

Posted by David Jones on Oct 8, 2020 10:30:00 AM

Life is good...no, really...in this year when so many have suffered, I’ve been busy rediscovering joy and goodness in life. Personally, spiritually, and professionally. And it happens to be the year I turn 50. Half a century...50 laps around the sun. And as I sat at my desk and looked out the window at the Market Street traffic, it occurred to me that I’ve learned plenty of lessons during my lifetime...and that maybe I should jot some of them down. All of these lessons are personal...some are definitely spiritual...but every one of them can be profitable if applied to business, too.

How do you take your coffee?

Posted by David Jones on Sep 16, 2020 11:00:00 AM

According to legend, a goat herder in the Kaffa region of Ethiopa found that his goats were overly excited after eating some beans on a local bush. It wasn’t long until Kaldi ate them himself. He then took them to a monk who disapproved of the stimulant effect and threw the seeds into the fire, which made them smell good. Someone took the roasted beans from the ashes, ground them up, and dissolved them in hot water. Soon thereafter everyone in the tribe was coming to Kaldi-bucks for their morning brew. Parts of that are probably apocryphal and other parts are completely made up. But it did get me wondering…how do those folks that I work with and around take their coffee? And just how big a part of our lives is it?

Baseball & Business

Posted by David Jones on Aug 6, 2020 11:00:00 AM

While COVID-19 was busy turning our lives, our jobs, and our economy upside down, it also threw a severe wrench into the works of pretty much all sporting endeavors in the world. Baseball was in the middle of spring training when the pandemic panic went into overdrive, causing the cancellation of the rest of spring training and a huge uncertainty over whether we would see a baseball season at all in 2020. It took some time, extra precautions, and a massive amount of negotiations, but the baseball fans at the ClearBox offices got at least the 60 game season that is underway. It got us to thinking about how baseball is similar to business.

Irish Contributions to The Modern World

Posted by David Jones on Mar 11, 2020 11:00:00 AM

As we approach St. Patrick’s Day, we thought it might be nice to think about some things the Irish people have done for our world…besides green beer and Irish whisky. I mean, let’s be honest—Peterson pipes and Guinness are pretty great and they do have their place, but they probably don’t have a direct impact on your daily lives.
