Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 304 To a Brighter Future Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 304

Photo by: Chad Barr How should I open this week’s newsletter? With the tragic events of last week that have shaken our nation to its core, it’s important for us to not dwell on the horror but to look beyond and find a way to heal this great nation. As you know, I’m an immigrant to this land, in the religious minority, where the opportunities for success, growth and freedom, personal and religious, were many. I spoke virtually no English...

Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 303 Time for Instantiation Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 303

Photo by: Chad Barr One of my favorite words is instantiation or to instantiate. Its meaning is to make the complex simple. My opinion is that we are all guilty (self included) at creating too much complexity in our life and business. Occam’s Razor theory suggests that of any set of explanations for an event occurring, it is most likely that the simplest one is the correct one. I work with some of the smartest individuals in the world. Yet,...

Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 301 The Great Disconnect Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 301

Photo by: Chad Barr I’ve been talking recently about looking at things we know through a new lens and a different vantage point. I’ve had the great opportunity this last two weeks to explore through my multiple camera lenses the vast expanses of the west, namely, Utah. Sunsets, and sunrises, leaves deepening colors, desert, arches and a search for the Milky Way in the vast horizon and night sky. This rich experience, has allowed me to clear my head, open...

Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 300 Revitalize Your Energy Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 300

Photo by: Chad Barr In 1983, as our kids were growing up, we decided to move to our present home, which being newly constructed, afforded us the ability to choose some finishing touches. My home office was in place, lined with shelves that have become bowed under the weight of hundreds of books I acquired over the 24 years here. The once trendy floors and colors have become dated and dull like the winter grey days here in Cleveland. I’ve...

Photo by: Chad Barr September 11, 2001. I had brought my entire team to Las Vegas for a leadership growth experience that concluded that fateful morning. We arrived at the airport only to learn the horror of tragic events that had transpired only moments before our arrival. The impact of that event changed the life of every American and surely citizen of the world that day. We scrambled, trying to find flights only to learn that every outbound flight had...

Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 296 Looking back, looking forward Raising the Barr Weekly Memo: Issue 296

Photo by: Chad Barr This Sunday evening, we will usher in the Jewish New Year 5779. I will have the privilege of joining my wife in leading worship services, accompanying her on guitar. One of the highlights of this service is hearing the sounds of the shofar, the ram’s horn; 100 blasts in all! It is a time for us to be awakened by the sounds, and to look inward at our deeds and our actions over the past year....
