Reimagining Romance

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed That’s a long time to be married after so short a courtship. How did you make it work?” an acquaintance asked when he found out our details. You see, Susan and I met in January of that year, I asked her to marry me in July and we were married in November. (Valentine’s Day was the first holiday that we celebrated!) This year will be our 48th Valentine’s Day. So, yes, his question was a good one. Although short...

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed Recently, my wife and I started binging the television show, Suits. I was enthusiastically told about this show by a close friend and co-author of mine. He raved about it; but I’d never watched a single episode. Let alone a season or two… or nine, as it turns out. Netflix made the seasons available and as a result we made ourselves available to watch them. The show is quite interesting and the script is as tight as a...

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed Why is it that birthdays are so fun to celebrate – both for the birthday person and those celebrating with them? I was born on January 8th and today is my birthday – please hold the applause! Ha. (I did very little when it happened…) Part of the joy of celebrating one’s b-day is singing the Happy Birthday To You song. Part of it may involve other songs that have become a part of one’s birthday, along the...

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed For most of us, the holidays are about reunions. For many of us, reunions are all about reconnecting with those people from our familial past, many of whom are irregular, most of whom are genuinely fun to be with. It’s a hot-mess of stew. So, this Holiday Newsletter may surprise you when I write that it’s not about Christmas. No dinner, no night before Santa, no baby in a manger. It’s something very different, however...

Dennis Mansfield showing his books on his podcast, Just Around the Corner

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed It’s rare that I send out two Newsletters so close together. Because November 22nd, 2023 is the 60th memorial anniversary of President John Kennedy’s assassination, I wanted you to view/listen to my most recently published podcast episode on the subject. In it I speak about how I wrote my new book, Empires of Dirt, along with the reasons behind spending three years of research and editing to launch it on such a...

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed This month’s Newsletter has a bit of a different feel to it – as it must, given the history of November, 60 years ago. Allow me to explain. On the 22nd of November 60 years ago, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in plain sight, captured clearly by a Bell and Howell home-movie camera held by a Dallas clothing store owner. All history was changed that day, presidential succession caused those many changes. But...

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed Recently, I found out that I’m going to die. Hang on, hang on…I’ll get to that in a second. I want you to read through this newsletter with your own mortality in mind, not mine (though maybe mine may help you.) You see, time is weird. When my mother, Ginny Mansfield, was born, Abraham Lincoln had been dead less than 60 years. That new thought recently hit me as I played with time; it actually shocked me, as I looked at...

Original Apple Logo

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed We live in a universe of logos and brands. I’ve driven down many major streets in the US, Europe, China, New Zealand and Ireland - logos are everywhere. Logos/branding are essential to businesses for marketing their very identity. And boy oh boy do we know them! Or do we? Take for example, Apple. Do you think you’re familiar with Steve Jobs’ brain-child logo? (I thought I was.) Take a look at what he first approved to...

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed I’m a coach. I coach coaches. My guess is that you’ve been one, too, but never knew it – stay with me and see what I mean. Here’s a little background on myself … I can remember as an elementary school kid organizing teams of classmates to do things – always looking for talent among my little co-conspirators: seeing who was funny, and who was witty, who was athletic, who had fun just being active. Sometimes my reason...

Eric Liddell running in Chariots of Fire

The Mansfield Newsletter Empowering you to overcome challenges and succeed Competition makes each of us better. It always has. And yet, competition doesn’t demand we demean others. One hundred years ago today France was preparing to host the Olympics. A century later Paris is again preparing to do so - for 2024. A true story happened a century ago during the 1924 Olympic Games that was beautifully and gloriously captured on film, through the 1981 Academy Award Winning film, Chariots of...
