What is the harsh reality of enjoying a productive summer at work?

What we accept by default becomes our standard.

whatever you are, be a good one – abe lincoln


We must demonstrate mastery of these five unconventional tactics before we graduate from manager to leader:

1. discern the most important point of every critical theory
2. be world class at focus and discipline
3. paint a clear, concise, and compelling picture of the future
4. demonstrate (invisibly) world class habits that deliver world class results
5. be the model for work life balance and wellness

Professionally Speaking

All Day, Every Day

Beaumont, Texas this week. Next week, Disney World.
Spent the day "here" yesterday, doing work that mattered.

As a professional speaker, it’s my job to deliver excellence all day, every day.

I’ll even be so bold as to say it’s everyone’s job, no matter their occupation, to do the exact same.

The bad news is this is hard to achieve. The good news is the more you do it, the better you get. Go!

Fuel is easy to spot when we're hungry, but what about when we're not motivated?

I’m not kidding. The way to stay motivated is to force yourself to gather enough fuel to sustain you until you need to add fuel again. Such a simple concept. For example, we eat breakfast and a few hours later we need to eat again. Motivation is no different.
