Our Next Move

If one is alive, aging is unavoidable. Its challenges are numerous, and those who fall into this category must deal with it head-on. If not, the options are few. One can run and hide, although I’m hard-pressed to imagine where one can do so since it is not what we have ever done. In any event, Lenette and I are smack dab in the middle of it.

As far as day-t0-day goes, I know that eating and keeping hydrated is essential, along with the other absolutes of life. Sustaining oneself adequately is necessary, though, at times, challenging. And, of course, there are other issues. For many, seeing is difficult, so reading is out. Hearing is almost impossible, and skin is so thin that a wrong touch means bleeding.  Aging is this and more, and any idea that any of this is easy can only come from 40- and 50-year-olds.

Now, we must move to another facility. The process is complicated and demands attention to detail, paperwork, and a mix of professionals. I was once able to do this, but now as an old man, I am not.  However, a couple, who have been close friends for many years, have stepped up and taken charge of our immediate life. Pure love is given to us, and we are being cared for.   

I will continue to write because it is what I can do, and I must do something. Recognizing that I was a leader of leaders makes it even more critical that I continue to reveal my thoughts as I discover or rediscover them.

Sy Ogulnick received a BA from UCLA, Teacher’s Credential from Los Angeles Board of Education and completed phase I (Master’s portion) in a Doctor of Behavioral Science program at California Coast University. Sy leased and operated a summer day camp in LA. He and his wife then purchased virgin wilderness land in Northern CA, where they built and operated a coed summer camp. They moved to Las Vegas, NV, and purchased, built and operated a community children’s program for families staying in a major resort casino in Las Vegas. They have created programs for children nationwide that employed many people and in the process developed successful training programs for personnel. This led Sy to lecture on how to train staff and the creating of community within the workplace. Sy was then invited to speak at professional conferences on how best to hire and train employees, which led to his becoming a consultant in the art of improving relationships in a work environment and eventually to his epiphany that “Leaders are the primary problem and the answer to the personnel issues that arise in the workplace.” Sy has written numerous papers on the subject of interpersonal relationships, leadership and power. He has lectured throughout the United States, has been interviewed by the media and has appeared on many radio and TV talk shows
