It’s About Time!

“Time management is nonsense. You cannot manage time, it flows comfortably by at its own pace, blissfully unaware of human angst and tribulation. It’s your priorities you get to manage.” When I say “time management is nonsense”, that doesn’t mean I think all the principles taught in Time Management courses are nonsense.  A lot of…

Failing to succeed

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” That quote from Michael Jordan is probably not new to you;…

Tell the tale, make the sale

Online Authenticity

In the offline world (a.k.a. “real life”) it’s quite hard to hide who we really are.  There are lots of clues that people can pick up on, that reveal how authentic we are being when we talk about what we do for a living. Those include our tone of voice, our body language, our ability…

Making yourself attractive

“The world makes way for the man who knows where he is going” – Ralph Waldo Emerson That quote is a great reminder of the importance of having a clear vision of what you plan to achieve here in the world. But I think there’s something missing.  Going is something you do, and being leads…
