When Not to Keep a Secret

As the leader of the Adizes Institute, I insist that there are no secrets, save for proprietary information pertaining to our clients, which is sacred. What happens inside the Institute has to be totally transparent. This means if Joe comes to me and tells me something about Bill (perhaps something has happened that should not have happened), or he has some criticism of Bill which he puts in an email, I immediately forward that email to Bill—to let him know what Joe said about him.

What Does It Mean to be Jewish?

There’s a passage in the Jewish prayer that I never liked. I don’t pronounce it in my prayer. It is the Ata Behartanu, which translates as “You, God, have chosen us as your chosen people,” which could be taken to mean that we are better than anybody else—better than the people we live with, the Gentiles. It always bothered me, this superiority complex. So I always skipped reading it.

More on Happiness

Children run, jump, and look happy. Old people do not move much and feel cranky. Is there a message? I believe so. It has to do with energy. When we have no energy, we feel tired, moody, unhappy. What gives us energy and what depletes our energy? The answers might tell us what will make us happy or unhappy.

We can love or hate someone, even after they die. Or sometimes, their love or hate continues in their disciples. Compare Jesus to Hitler. Jesus’s love continues. And Hitler’s hatred continues, too.

Why We Hurt the Ones We Love

It is a known phenomenon that the people we give the hardest time to are the people who are closest to us, whom we love. Those we don’t love, we ignore. We might criticize them, but we don’t bother to approach and reprimand them. The ones we reprimand the most and criticize the most—and thus give the most pain to—are the ones we love the most.

The Theory of Everything

What happened when the Big Bang occurred? Time and space started. What was there before the Big Bang? There must have been something that was not time and space bound because both started with the Big Bang. What is it? It cannot be nothing. Nothing cannot create everything. I think it was energy because energy is neither bounded by time nor by space.Energy can be destructive or constructive.
