Organization is Important
Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up. ~ A.A. Milne
Yes, I just quoted the author of Winnie-the-Pooh. And he is right, which is both obvious and apparent, especially to those of us trying to stay organized. Let’s be honest, it is a constant struggle. You have your business life and your personal life. Some people keep separate … Read More
What is hot tomorrow won't be forever. Today's styles and trends likely will have changed by this time next year, if not sooner. You can look no further than general music trends from the '80's through now.
Back then rock ruled. Think Queen, Led Zeppelin, etc. Then glam rock became big - think of Guns-n-Roses, Motley Crue and Poison - only to be kicked to the curb by Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden& … Read More

Blameless Problem Solving and Self-Accountability
No one likes to cause an issue, be wrong, be behind on a project or deal with the fallout. But part of blameless problem solving is self-accountability.
Self-accountability is the ability to be honest with yourself, as well as being answerable and responsible for what you say and do. To do so, when something goes wrong, you need to step out of the moment and consider consequences of how you respond. It means that … Read More

The Older You Get, the Less You Know
What? Really. What I mean is that as you gain experience you realize how much you don't know and become (hopefully) more comfortable admitting it. We all experience conversations where the other person tells you they know about something or someone, but is or becomes clear they don't. You see this more in younger or less experienced people, but anyone can do it.
Most times it comes from … Read More
Focus on Doing Good Work, Not Money
You are saying "What? But I want to work to make money." We all work to be able to support ourselves. What I mean is if you focus on doing the best you can, the money likely will follow. If you only focus on money you will try to close deals that shouldn't close or sell something to someone that they don't need. If you are okay with that and the bad karma you deserve, you should take a look in the mirror and see … Read More
In Real Life You Shouldn’t be Keeping Score
Don't be envious of others. Just because you think they have a better title or seem to have more money doesn't mean it’s true. The person you view as a "higher up" may hate the position they are in. The person who seems to have money may be living on debt. Not making assumptions is a topic for another day.
Similarly, don't be vindictive. Don't try to get even. If you really analyze a situation where … Read More
Don’t Let Your Communication be an Illusion, Communicate to be Understood!
Communication is a singular important matter in all contacts between people. But it does not always happen in a way leading to understanding on the same level between the participants in the conversation. This is highlighted by a quote that I like: The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place - George Bernard Shaw
Do the people you communicate with understand what … Read More
