Going Digital Makes Business Easy…But It Isn’t Easy

Last week I wrote about the importance of effective time management in my business (and my life). And part of what has made my time management good has been the use of digital products and services. While going digital is a great idea and can make life a whole heck of a lot easier, it […]

Dominate Your Day by Planning It

For those of you that know me, you know that time management, prioritizing, and output efficiency are big things for me. I am thankful to say that over the last sixteen years of existence in the professional world, I have grow to become quite good at each of the three. Sometimes I’m crazy about it […]

Can I Offer You A Process?

As “driven” individuals, we often want to get right to work. When we start a new job, we are rearing to get at it. When we have an opportunity come before us, we jump on top of it. It is so tempting to get right to the issue, especially when we (think) we have the […]

There are many reasons why these statements are poor for any business professional but for sake of space, I will just include a few. More business […]

Succeeding with many advisers

“Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.” Proverbs 15:22 Independence is a virtue that many business leaders possess. There are great benefits in having the capability to do things yourself. You don’t have to depend on others to accomplish things. You don’t have to wait for someone else in order to finish […]

You Need to Pace Yourself

As an avid Crosfitter  I am regularly striving for more. More weight, more repetitions of a specific movement, and more time cut from a workout. The longer I Crossfit, the more I understand my body and what’s it’s current limitations are. If I try for more than I am able at that time, I ruin the chances […]
