What’s Your Excuse?

    I meet lots of people in my development work. 99% of those people join my workshops because they are not making progress; they’re not where they want to be, doing what they want to be doing. 100% of them have a reason why. And they’re all excuses. You’re either getting results or you’re giving reasons. Which are you? Become someone who makes progress.

        Be Productive, Not Busy

          At times, we get caught up in the little things that we feel need to be done. Right now, for example, I am in clean up mode in my office. I can get so productive that I jump from one thing to the next and before I know it my space looks like a war zone, or a teenager’s bedroom!

          In cleaning up I cam across this quote I plucked out of Tim Ferris’s 4-hour Work Week book:

          “The size of your bank account doesn’t change by the number of hours you log in handling unimportant email or minutiae” Tim Ferris

          Every now and then I think we all need to be reminded of the priorities.
