Your effort at what you do for a living is everything. You may be smarter, but you can be outworked by someone with less intelligence.
When you were young (and sometimes - to your detriment - when you were older) your mother told you how smart you are. For many, by the time they become teenagers, it changes to you’re smart and if you would just apply yourself you would get better grades. … Read More
Always Strive to Improve Yourself
You can do better. You can be better. Always. If you don't think so you are only fooling yourself. You must invest in yourself.

One-way to know if you follow up is to ask yourself if things you want to get done do. This includes tasks you or others, whether inside or outside your company, are working on. I know many of you are thinking you shouldn't have to follow up for things to be completed. That is a misplaced thought.
How many times have you realized at or just before the end of the business day a task or project … Read More

Teamwork is Necessary
No one really makes it on their own. Everyone is part of a team, whether internally at their business or with partners at other businesses. Anyone who thinks their success is only attributable to their own actions is mistaken and myopic.
You need to know your colleagues. Does this mean you have to be best friends with everyone and know everything about them? Of course not. But it does mean … Read More
