How I Plan My Life for Optimal Performance - David DeWolf

How I Plan My Life for Optimal Performance

As part of my daily routine, I have a habit of planning my day. It’s a crucial part of how I plan my life and try to ensure optimal performance.

Planning my day is more than looking at my calendar, adding events, and moving things around. In fact, my planning has almost nothing to do with my calendar.

The power of my daily planning is that what I’m really planning is what to do in my work time. Typically we only schedule meetings or blocks of time. By having a queue of tasks, I can spend my time knocking the highest priorities off of my list instead of recalling what I might need to do.

Here’s how I do it.

Is Technology Enriching or Destroying Your Life? - David DeWolf

Is Technology Enriching or Destroying Your Life?

For years, technology development has been focused on optimizing the workplace. Advancements were focused on automating mechanical routines, providing tools to enhance productivity, or optimizing the storage and retrieval of information. From ERP software to some of the complex robotic systems that automate the production of automobiles, technology development was focused on work.

In the past decade, this focal point has shifted dramatically. Technology is beginning to impact the way we live and play just as much, if not more, as it is the way we work.

3 Ways to Negotiate - David DeWolf

3 Ways to Negotiate

There are three ways to negotiate: play hardball, work for a good, fair deal, or manage the situation and be willing to walk away.

Think about negotiation as a pendulum. You can pull the pendulum all the way to the left and try to take advantage of the situation to get the best deal possible for you and you alone. You can hold the pendulum all the way to the right, which would be to fold and give everything to the person on the other side of the aisle. You can also walk away from a person who refuses to yield the pendulum from their side.

Being a Leader Means Being Hated - David DeWolf

Being a Leader Means Being Hated

If you’re going to be a leader, the reality is you’re not going to be liked, you’re going to do things people don’t like, and, quite frankly, you’re may be hated.

Businesses are made up of people. Every decision we make has ramifications for those people.

Over and over, I have been forced to make tough, difficult decisions that people don’t like and that hurt people. I haven’t made these decisions because I don’t like these people or because I don’t respect them or because I don’t do things the right way. The decisions I’ve made hurt because actions have ramifications, and sometimes people simply don’t like the decision I make. Even if they don’t really disagree, they don’t like the ramification that it has on them as a person.

Teaching Kids about Money - David DeWolf

Teaching Kids about Money

Teaching kids about money: it has to be done.

Recently Teresa and I sat down with our kids to do a reset on the way we teach them how to manage their money. Our goal is to start early, and to make sure that they are aware of what real life costs, the importance of saving, the importance of giving, and the importance of making hard decisions.

Here’s the new plan we rolled out to everyone over the age of five.
