10,000 Hours

July 30, 2012

Malcom Gladwell wrote in his book Outliers that in an evaluation of highly succesful people (whether it be business people or athletes), there existed a direct link between the amount of time that they invested in their profession, and the level of success that was achieved. DUH, right? Gladwell went on to key in on the actual number […]

Journey

July 26, 2012

Have you heard the quote: Life is about the journey, not the destination. Maybe you’ve heard it quoted just like that, or perhaps another version of it. Regardless of the exact verbage used, the concept is the same. How have you used this concept in your leadership opportunities?  I’ve blogged about the importance of goals a few times […]

Fear

July 23, 2012

Fearful tendencies exist in all of us, on some level. Some people can’t overcome them, and end up letting their fears run their lives, essentially rendering them useless in many pressure-filled situations. Many other people overcome fear, naturally, and grow to use it as a springboard of sorts, into another level of success. Take a […]

Activity

July 19, 2012

Many people confuse activity with accomplishment. Do you? At the end of the day, do you look back and think it was a success, just because you made it through the day?

A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure. ~ Lee Segall ~ Indecisiveness is the bane of my existence. It is what drives me crazy in virtually every aspect of my life. I recognize that, sometimes, I’m too quick to pull the trigger on […]

Criticism

July 12, 2012

Criticism is a compliment when you know what you’re doing is right. How many of you leaders out there have ever been criticized for something? That, of course, is a rhetorical question. If you answered that you haven’t been, then you are either lying, blind, or not a leader at all. Leaders get criticized. It’s a fact of life. It’s […]

Simple

July 9, 2012

While talking to a customer last week, I was told a story about how he created a simple solution in today’s complex world: He was in a business meeting that had people writing all over the whiteboards, and they were asking how they could create the technology to save everything that was written on the […]

Freeze or Ski

July 5, 2012

Some people freeze in the winter. Others ski. Which are you? This isn’t a literal question. Are you optimistic about things, or pessimistic? What do you do every day that helps you retain your optimism? In a world that continually provides us reasons to be drug down, how do you stay afloat? Let alone move […]

Persistence

July 2, 2012

The nose of a bulldog is slanted backwards so he can continue to breathe without letting go. – Winston Churchill – What are you doing to demonstrate persistence to your people? What initiatives do you have in place to show your co-workers or employees that you will be staying the course and battling with everything you’ve got, to get […]
