Hurry Up!

Tags : 

Often we are amazed by how fast time seems slip away. It is my belief, and perhaps the belief of many others that we are living in a very interesting time and the rate of human and intellectual development is accelerating at pace seemingly beyond our ability to keep up. Creating success in a fast

Strange Stuff

Tags : 

People do some strange stuff, right? Recently someone suggested to me that many people engage on social media channels simply looking for a fight. Yesterday, I caught a glimpse of a news program discussing a recent study that proclaims the residual effects or emotional experiences drawn from “spite” are healthy. In some cases society has

The Power of Fear

Tags : 

Listen carefully to what people say, the actions that they take, and the results that they get. Successful people assume more risk. Period. “I considered saying something, but couldn’t bring myself to do it.” “I wanted to volunteer but I figured they wanted someone more experienced.” “I thought about saying ‘hello’ to the owner of

You’re Talented!

Tags : 

People often work very hard to develop their talent. What is sometimes surprising is that people work even harder to develop their weaknesses. The same is true for businesses. Spending time and energy on fixing weaknesses has both merit and value. Becoming entirely focused on fixing weaknesses, as compared to developing talent is probably the

Same Old, Same Old

Tags : 

Routines become part of life, if you allow it. A routine of getting prepared, being organized, exercise and healthy eating may all be considered good. Routines in support of the status quo, limited learning opportunities, and only accepting what comes easily in life may not be so good. Many people pursue life as one big

Good Intentions

Tags : 

We seem to believe that good intentions mean something. I thought about trying to improve, but I didn’t take any action. I thought about calling the customer to offer the special but then I got busy with email. I thought about changing my diet, but then I thought it really doesn’t matter that much anyway.

Collaboration Combination

Tags : 

You’ve heard about win-win. You suggest it, you stipulate it, and you tell others that it is the only way you roll. Do you pride yourself on win-win relationships? Are you sure?

Hearing Confidence

Tags : 

Often people tell me that they are “trying to stay positive,” which is not a bad statement to make, or hear. What is often more troubling is that when they speak, they speak defeat. If you listen carefully you will hear words like: Can’t Never Won’t Bad Difficult Not that these words shouldn’t be used,

Strategy and Logic

Tags : 

Good strategy doesn’t always align with what many would believe is good logic. Looking back not everyone agreed with the concept of the personal computer, the internet, and cellular telephones. It doesn’t mean that any of those were a bad idea. Often what is necessary for a breakthrough involves breaking down old habits, traditions, and

Spending Smart

Tags : 

It seems reasonable that all businesses spend money on marketing and advertising efforts. People too, they spend their energy and resources on networking, relationship building, and future positioning. Some businesses will just throw money at a problem; throw money at building their brand, or at marketing and advertising efforts. It doesn’t mean they are any
