"Wait Until Tomorrow" by Pat MacEnulty ... A Must Read for Every Woman!

When I was on my last trip my wonderful assistant Dorothy took a book that came in the mail and placed it on the stack of books on my desk in the right hand corner. It is my “to read or still processing my learning pile of books.”
Today, back in my office after three intense weeks on the road I glanced to see at what new treat awaited me. On top of “Enchantment,” “A Sense of Urgency,” “Happiness” and “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” was a new book titled “Wait Until Tomorrow.” “Wait Until Tomorrow” is a memoir written by my friend of over twenty-five years, Pat MacEnulty. I looked again at the titles of the books that Pat’s book sat on top of. The other titles seemed to echo the journey of Pat’s life. The journey that made it important for her to think when things get hard, terrifying or seemingly unbearable, wait until tomorrow because something wonderful can happen. The book is Pat’s journey as a daughter and a mother. A daughter taken care of by her mother, a mother taking care of her daughter and the recent years, very difficult ones for her as a daughter taking care of her elderly mother.
I opened Pat’s book and started reading. I had read the book a year ago in draft form, but I knew Pat had made many changes. After reading just the introduction and the first two chapters I knew it was an extraordinary book. In fact, I want every woman I know to read it. I want to shout from the rooftops and sing it from the mountains like the Julie Andrews spinning arms out stretched singing, “The Sound of Music.” The pages of this book are alive with the sound of Pat’s love of her mother and her daughter. They are alive with her talent. Pat is the ultimate cool person. So to use her vernacular “Man” she can write. I am so blessed to know Pat.

Tot Mom, Casey Anthony's Body Language During Recent Court Appearance for Jury Selection




I studied Tot Mom, Casey Anthony's body language during her recent court appearance for the Nancy Grace show. She demonstrated several comfort cues such as holding her own hand and bringing her hand up to her mouth which showed her high level of anxiety. She is also seen obsessively adjusting her drink on a napkin, adjusting the band on her ponytail and other behavior that reveals her desire to control what she can control.


Check the link below to my YouTube channel to see the interview and observe Casey's comforting and controlling behaviors.

Guy Kawasaki’s latest book, “Enchantment” and Why You Should Shake Hands

I was reading Guy’s Kawasaki’s latest book, “Enchantment” on the plane back from a speech to Judges in Texas the other day. The book was filled with wonderful little tidbits. He says early in the book, in fact on page nine that “you need four things for a great first impression: your smile, your dress, your handshake and your vocabulary.” Yippee! for recognizing that handshakes are still important. You know how I feel about them. I just did a speech last week for a Financial Association. We discussed how important it was for them to shake hands to create rapport. They have to have the rapport or people are not going to share their financial information.

Here is a quote from my new book on first impressions

“The choices of where, when and with whom to give a handshake have changed over the last few years due to differences in culture and religious background, a more casual business culture and the maturing of the Purell germaphobic generation. Yet, handshaking remains an important ritual for you to understand, use with ease and use as a source of information as you work on your first impression and reading others. Recent studies in North America indicate that a firm handshake that shows strength and vigor with appropriate eye contact length and completeness of grip creates a favorable first impression. In fact, the handshake is the quickest, most effective way to establish rapport with another person.”

In the book “Enchantment” like many recent business books he mentions Paul Eckman’s facial expression research and on page 10 of the “Enchantment” is research that I quoted many years ago in my “Success Signals” book on smiling that I also mention under likability in my new book. It is nice to know that great minds think alike.

May 4th - Make A Promise Day


May 4th is Make A Promise Day. Recently I did an interview about my friend Roy and promises we made to each other many years ago. Today, on Make a Promise Day, think about the times in your life when you made a promise and what it meant. When you use the two Magic Words (I Promise) they invoke a powerful force to make things happen. When you make a promise and can Keep Your Word you can Change Your Life.
