Things I’ve Realized or Learned Recently

 Rather than instantiating (making the complex simple), most individuals I meet make the simple complex. Life and business happen each day, which have the tendency to mess up the best of priorities and productivity tools. With the best of technologies available, the airlines still can’t figure out how to notify the ground team to be ready at the gate when the plane arrives early. Most …

Time to Reflect

I like this time a year when one year comes to a close and the other is about the begin. It’s as the world goes into slow-motion, people (most) are friendlier and there is a great sense of renewal. One of my favorite activities is that of reflection where I get to review the previous year and take note of what has worked well and …

Things I’ve Realized or Learned Recently

You can get great last minute seats to any show you desire to see on Broadway. All you need to do is find a good concierge and be willing to pay the price.  “Where are you from?” usually start great conversations with the cab drivers in New York city.

Why?

Here are some of the questions I am pondering. Why: Don’t entrepreneurs eliminate trivial tasks and decisions that are taking them off their goals? Because it’s easier and it takes commitment and discipline to focus on their goal. Is common-sense so uncommon? Because perhaps it is an innate trait that can not be learned or taught. Do so many so-called thought leaders and thinkers mostly …

Why?

Here are some of the questions I am pondering. Why: Do SEO spammers resort to spam solicitation emails rather than using their energy to attract clients with effective SEO techniques? Do most focus on tactics rather than identify their strategy first and then execute? Are so many wasting their time on various social media platforms rather than develop their own content and various offerings? Do …

Are You Promoting New Projects While Working on Existing Ones?

When you are already working on a project with your client, do you offer additional ideas and value that frequently trigger new projects? I am astonished at how many I talk with do not do that. The comments I often hear are: “I don’t do that” or “I am not comfortable doing that” or “I don’t find it to be appropriate within the boundaries of …

Do You Have the Courage to Do What it Takes to Be Successful?

This has to be one of my most favorite questions that I ask prospective and current clients. I do acknowledge that each person, when asked that question, indicates their desire and commitment to increase their success, different as it may be for each. Unfortunately, few actually act on it. Here is what I mean (in no particular order) by having the courage to do what …

Ideas for Writing

Many writers I meet (self included) share with me that they often look for ideas for writing and especially when faced with writer’s block. Recently, I published this article: I think I’ll invent something new – What are the best ways of developing new ideas? where I explored the best ways and places to generate creative and innovative ideas. It also occurred to me that …
