Do Not Pass Go

Easy, effortless, enjoyable

LinkedIn Learning module notes.
  • Easy, effortless, enjoyable.
  • Who doesn’t want that?
  • The book won’t be good unless you expose yourself.

These notes are from a LinkedIn Learning module by Jodi Glickman.

Here we are January 13, 2020 and people’s renewed excitement for renewal and recommitment are starting to crack and crumble.

Why?

Too much coming at us.

i mean too much on top of the normal craziness.

What Are You Waiting For?

Heading north in a few days

Sand Hill crane
Exquisite architecture. Nature. In our front yard.

Heading north in a few days to spend a planned weekend at our Son’s college.

His college acceptance letter arrived mid-December and we’ve had four previous visits, including an overnight dorm room stay.

The five other smart and ambitious young men have not yet been accepted.

This is a stress for them that is challenging to comprehend.

While we are attending a Spring Campus weekend traditon, the others are missing this type of opportunity.

Being organized and committed can trump a highly-prized personal attribute like intellect.

Traditional metrics have merit.

So do non-traditional metrics.

The freedom an entrepreneurial lifestyle brings

Howe ridge fire
It’s doubled since this photo a few days ago. Note the expected containment date, 2.5 months from now.

 

The freedom an entrepreneurial lifestyle brings is the payoff for the never-guaranteed success that only comes from taking the risk to do something that may not work.

But what actually makes it work is refusing to fail – in essence, refusing to quit.

You have to have a “burn-the-ships” passion.

Win or die.

Not becoming an entrepreneur leads to stress…

Stress is caused by the imbalance between effort and results.

We all want freedom, especially after we have spent decades in our careers, but few of us are willing to risk the effort required to get the results we dream of.

One Question A Day?

Are your toughest work days bearable?

expedia car rental
Sweat the details before you need to, and maybe you won’t have to. Lower left…free cancellation. Book months in advance and if plans change, no worries about cost obligations. Wait too long to book, and choices and prices change unfavorably.

 

Are your toughest work days bearable?

What if they (consistently) were?

Travel is picking up and part of my role as an Army of One is to book things in the most effective (time) and efficient (cost) way possible. Stayed up past normal bedtime to be caught up through October.

Dear Son

Workplace unhappiness is an American epidemic

High school track practice
i was stretching (on the ground) just like them, but it’s not appropriate for a parent to be in the athlete group. i literally mirrored their flexibility.

 

Workplace unhappiness is an American epidemic.

What’s the answer to feelings of inadequacy, disconnection, and lack of impact?

If you’re in charge, you better be managing this exceptionally well, and, you must also ensure your direct reports are a mirror image of your efforts.
