Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

checking in

June14

It’s no secret that I coach several members of the House and Senate in both their political and business ventures. So, I’ve checked-in with them for some updates in terms of views from Capitol Hill.

Why now?

I’m disappointed in President Obama for some key reasons. But the biggest of those reasons is also the simplest: I feel that he’s failed to lead us at the time, and at exactly the moment, leadership has been needed most.

For example, the situation with BP and the horrendous situation off of the Gulf coast. Having (also) checked-in with several preeminent members of the Marine Biology Faculty at College of Charleston, the real and awful expent of the damage is not clearly understood by the average American.

Obama appears to align himself with the cause of the day; joining in and commiserating (like making a speech), as opposed to making a stand and being firm. President Obama has ben great at meeting distraught fishermen and Gulf shore home owners. But, he has been slow to pin BP down on what needs to be done beyond financial restitution. I understand this is more in BP’s line of expertise, but, I feel a task-force is called for. Also, Obama has literally told Great Britain that there is: no hard feelings over both the oil leak… Oh, and the draw in Saturday’s 1 -1 World Cup match, mind you.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

communication, alignment and accountability

June1

I’m getting unusual traction and response, and thusly, influence, in both my corporate and community circles through a simple message:

You can eliminate the cost of chaos through communication, alignment and accountability.

great Mistakes

December2

I say it all the time.

However, I was reminded, and only this morning (while coaching a CEO whose book you’ve likely read), that I’ve not offered this thought, on or through, this Blog.

A rule, and it must needs be a rule to live by is: “The worst mistake you can make is one you repeat”.

Mistakes can almost always represent foundations for an opportunity to finish well. I’ve certainly made some big mistakes, and all of them; each and everyone – as painful as they can be, are a kind, if certainly not gentle, reminders of greater potential.

This can be, but need not be a corollary to my earlier post: opportunities to Shine, Really.

Charles Darwin will have his chin on fist with his gaze firmly upon you, and at every opportunity.

We must, after all is said and done, represent ourselves as Prudent Gentlemen.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
