Time to write the next book. I guess it’s the luck of the Irish that was shared with me.

First week of April I am having surgery and the recovery will take 2-3 months or more, so… thinking about what I can do to be productive, engaged and useful. My part Irish daughter-in-law, Amy, mentioned I had been talking about another book and it might be a good time to write it. I agree!

A bunch of years ago, 15+, I sprained my left ankle while running with Max my fantastic Boston Terrier. Over time it has caused problems. I had to stop playing racket ball, running was an issue and lately my ankle has given way and caused me to fall.

In addition to splitting my head open twice from falling I have visited five doctors. Each one had a different opinion. Finally, I went to a Dr. Peng who interviewed me for over an hour. When all the opinions were assessed it became clear as day what the real issue was. It wasn’t a stroke, neuropathy, drop foot, plantar fasciitis, vascular problems or symptoms of an impending heart attack. It was the wear and tear from a sprained ankle and a running accident many years ago.

Needless to say it took a major effort to resolve this medical dilemma. I have been fascinated by how similar this process and recognizing the patterns is to problems we all face everyday in business and our personal lives. How do you RESOLVE issues?

If you want to know more about how to do this, “find the real problem and resolve it” be sure to ask me for a copy of my new book, Resolution. It’s not about medicine, it’s about life and business. Do you like the title? RESOLUTION

The medical part:
The posterior tibial tendon is one of the most important tendons of the leg. A tendon attaches muscles to bones, and the posterior tibial tendon attaches the calf muscle to the bones on the inside of the foot. The main function of the tendon is to hold up the arch and support the foot when walking.

The posterior tibial tendon attaches the calf muscle to the bones on the inside of the foot.
An acute injury, such as from a fall, can tear the posterior tibial tendon or cause it to become inflamed.
