Ignore the Pointy Old Finger


By now we should all feel suicidal. 

The pride and vanity before the fall with selfie photos should have wiped younger generations off the map.

I understand people look preoccupied with themselves in the age of selfies.

Your lower self, or what the Bible calls "the flesh," has an Enneagram number. A Myers-Briggs rating. A GEMS profile.

There is far more to business than making money. Money is simply the reward that follows doing business well.

Be a magnet not a pusher.

Instead of always talking about how great is your company, spend time talking about how great other people’s businesses and services are.

Why Transformation Is Essential


In an age where everyone is famous for 15 seconds at best, we should expect an equally speedy assault from personal entropy.

I awoke at 2:40 this morning and my brain immediately went to work categorizing and mapping out my day.

Because I go to bed around 8:30 or 9:00 each night, I was sufficiently rested. This wasn't a huge interference.
