Juggling and Time Management

I was talking to someone recently who was overwhelmed with too many things on his plate and I told him something that I thought was worth repeating here… Juggling 10 balls and dropping 6 is not like juggling 4 balls. First of all it’s a lot harder and you don’t look very good dropping the […]

New Year’s Resolutions And Your Reticular Activation System

Many people try to do New Year’s Resolutions, but very few actually achieve them. Today’s posts explains part of the reason that happens or should I say doesn’t happen – you Reticular Activation System (RAS)… First and foremost, you need to WRITE your new year’s resolutions down on paper.

This was the one thing I couldn’t avoid this […]

One minute, I’m fine tuning our Marketing Autopsy that allows people to self-diagnose where they’re at with their marketing and the next minute I’m on the court, playing at the World Masters Squash Championships… Weird. Today’s lessons […]
