Increase productivity

How to increase productivity by tenfold in just 14 days

A few weeks ago I had a realization.

I had been making incredible progress on the majority of my annual goals, mostly through sheer willpower. I am a driven person. Put goals in front of me, and I will knock them down. Unfortunately, despite the progress, two of my goals were lagging desperately behind. Not for lack of desire, but, lack of “time”. In fact, when it came to my fitness goal, I was losing ground. Instead of losing 20 lbs, I had gained four – and I knew it was a result of “willing my way” to success.

In other words, my goals were fighting against each other – far from living the integrated life I aspire to.

Hardware vs software

Hardware vs Software – Software Always Wins

Software always wins. Hardware is always commoditized.

Here are a couple of reasons why:

Action over Information

We are all inundated with way too much information. Smaller and more prevalent hardware creates more and more data but, it is the software that ultimately turns it into usable insights. It is these insights that are ultimately turned into action, whether manual or automated and it is that action that ultimately drives the results that make our lives better.

How to Enhance Your Multicultural Management Skills

My hands were sweating, my thoughts racing. I was fairly uncomfortable – which is definitely not the norm – for this “all hands” meeting. As I opened my mouth to speak, I realized that I had absolutely no idea how to make sure that my message resonated with the team. I stumbled. I couldn’t even pronounce what rolled on my tongue.

And this was how I started my first international all hands meeting. I was in Romania for the first time, just months before we had acquired the office.
