I BELIEVE:

Structure and creativity are two sides of the same coin. Brilliant people have brilliant rituals that keep them focused and productive.

I BELIEVE:

Cover bands don’t change the world. To thrive in the marketplace you must find and develop your own, unique voice.

I BELIEVE:

The antidote to regret is urgency + diligence. When you approach each day with intent and structure, you do your best work.

The Good Old Days

It’s human nature to seek greener pastures and new opportunities. Dissatisfaction with the status quo is often the beginning of growth and innovation, and is an essential part ofthe creative process. And, it can also mean an inability to fully appreciate the many gifts of your current situation.

In fact, most of the incredibly successful people I encounter in the marketplace have some form of study plan that they follow in order to help them spot patterns in their business, anticipate client needs, and simply spark new ideas and new categories of thought. Here’s how they do it.

Learn To Say No (So That You Can Say Yes)

Brilliant ideas often bubble up in the white space – the areas between our frenetic activity – and if you don’t take care to intentionally carve that white space, you might find that you’re active, but not productive.

The Dangers Of Keeping Score

Ever feel anxious about your work even though things are going really well? It might be because you are keeping score in ways that don’t even matter.
