With superheroes, you see time after time a single incident turning a “normal” person into someone with unimaginable superpowers. Whether it’s a radioactive spider bite, being struck by lightning, exposed to gamma rays, or injected with a serum, an ordinary person is turned extraordinary in an instant. Throughout their transformation, they acquire special abilities that range from invisibility to flight. 

What a difference nine months makes. Last September, we gathered in Dallas for the first post-COVID HITEC. Or more accurately, some of us did, but many of the usual exhibitors and attendees sat on the sidelines, hamstrung by the uncertain pace of the recovery, budgets, pandemic travel policies, and personal health concerns. The exhibit floor last fall was significantly smaller than in recent years, and attendance was down, even if most of the vendors felt that the quality of attendees was higher. Those who attended were seriously looking to buy, and the vendors I spoke with were mostly very happy with the event despite the downsizing.

In life, the easiest decisions to make are the Boolean ones, those for which there are only two possible answers. When your choices are yes or no, true or false, up or down, and in or out, then you can make your wants and needs definitively known in a matter of seconds – just ask any two-year-old.  

Just as technology has become more ubiquitous throughout our lives, it is now impacting guest service and hotel operations throughout all departments in a hotel. To provide more exposure to the growing costs associated with hotel information and technology systems, the 11th edition of the Uniform System of Account for the Lodging Industry added a discrete undistributed department to capture these expenses.

Power is an interesting thing. With it, you can make a tremendous impact relatively easily. Understanding that impact is what makes some leaders "Super Heroes" and others "Super Duds"!

Is HeadTrash Running (or Ruining) Your Life?
Posted: 03/01/2021 by Renie Cavallari

HeadTrash is the internal chatter of the little voices in your head. It doesn’t take much to get them whispering or even yelling. HeadTrash is created by the nasty, little people who live inside your brain. The chorus of critics who minimize you and convince you that you are not good enough. They are the "perfection people" who lurk in the shadows, waiting for you to fall out of your comfort zone and question you, your abilities and even your relationships.

Decreasing Stress
Posted: 09/14/2020 by Renie Cavallari

Stress does not come without your invitation. It is self-induced by our perspectives of what is occurring in our lives. We all have stress, and the less of it, the more happiness you experience. Life is about living day to day.

Finding Peace Within
Posted: 05/05/2020 by Renie Cavallari

As we continue to social distance and find our way in this new world order, the one thing you can control without exception is how you think and what you choose to focus on. Your thoughts reflect your beliefs. A belief is something you feel certain about.
