In my last blog entry I told you about the Michener Museum in Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  Today, we will see that I wandered across the street to take a look at the grounds of its neighbor, the Mercer Museum, a  six-story reinforced concrete castle designed by Henry Mercer (1856-1930) and completed in 1916. Containing 50,000 pre-Industrial tools, the permanent collection offers visitors a unique window into pre-Industrial America through sixty different crafts and trades, and is one of the world’s most comprehensive portraits of pre-Industrial American material culture. Having made a past visit to the Mercer, I knew the collection was quirky, with staircases pointing in all directions and no climate control above the first floor.

Yesterday, I traveled about an hour north of Wilmington Delaware to the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Begun in 1884 as the Bucks County Prison, it was transformed 100 years later into an art gallery.  Philadelphia architect Addison Hutton had designed a 3-story warden's house and guardhouse using Italianate and Romanesque Revival styles inspired by Quaker ideas of reflection and penitence modeled after Philadelphia's Eastern State Penitentiary, built in 1829 and designed by John Haviland.  The Michener didn't seem so creepy until I found out more about the history, expecially in a video posted online by a young scholar.  Yikes--walking over the gallows!Named after the famed writer of Hawaii (a book I bought years ago and was so cowed by its size that I never ...

  After 32 years in this business and 20 years of selling and coaching people on CRM, I’ve found that there are some consistent reasons why people don’t stick with their CRM. Here is the first and most important reason of five. First and foremost is that you need to make it a habit. That’s the part where most people fail right from the get go. What doesn’t work is spending hours with it on one day and none the next, and the next. What does work, is to use it every day without fail, until you are in the habit of using it every day. Now the question is how to do it. What does not work for the vast majority of people is to schedule time at varying times throughout each day to spend with your CRM. In this business, we get distracted by every day issues and keeping that appointment with your...
