Pigheaded Discipline or Flexibility?

February 6, 2019 | Leadership, Self Help, Time Management

Photo by Mark Cooke on Flickr As I have posted before, I am in the midst of re-reading Chet Holmes: The Ultimate Sales Machine. While the book talks about how to increase sales through better prospecting and scripting, it first addresses time management and how to plan out your day. A Life Long Student I have long been a student on how to best manage time. I don't believe tools such as google calendar, google tasks, or Microsoft Outlook are time management strategies. They are just tools. Since being in the workforce, I have used Franklin-Covey's Planner and David Allen's Getting Things…

Procrastination-Everybody’s Doing It (and here’s how not to)

April 28, 2016 | Leadership, Self Help, Time Management

With one week already passed in 2016, how are you doing? I want to spend more time with my wife and kids, exercise more, produce more content, make more sales contacts.....the list goes on. The phrase, "Keep it Simple", pertains to…

Recommitment With A 2 Month Head Start (Part 3 of 3)

November 11, 2015 | Leadership, Self Help

Photo by Stan Hieronymus on Flickr I hope your head start is going well. Mine is going ok. I have had some "life issues" derail some of my plans. We have been passing around sickness in our house so my time to commit to work out has been replaced with rest for myself or taking care of others. This happens. It is important though to bounce back and reintroduce the good habit as soon as it is possible. Just hit the pause button, not the stop button. I disengaged my pause button this morning. I want to share some best practices as…

MYTH: Providing goods and services to the government means you have to wait forever to get paid.

FACT: Many government contracts are subject to the Prompt Payment Act which was enacted to ensure the federal government makes timely payments. Bills are to be paid within 30 days after receipt and acceptance of goods/services or after receipt of an invoice whichever is last. If a timely payment is not made, interest should be automatically paid.
