Book Review – Remote Work Revolution

Key Takeaways The work world has changed significantly over the recent past, with more and more people working remotely. There are both challenges and benefits

From Knowledge Worker to Wisdom Worker

Have you heard of Twitch? I only recently heard about it. It’s a social platform that’s based entirely on streaming digital video broadcasts. It’s interesting to learn about these new things, but it just proves that there’s so much new technology out there that I don’t know about. The main reason I’m not aware of these things is because I’m not in that age category anymore—people under the age of 35 or 40.

What Are You Uniquely Good At?

Remember Andy Rooney from 60 Minutes? He once said, “The less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.” I have to agree with him.

Travel and Earn

I know several people who have retired and who golf. During the summertime, some of them will put time in at the golf course to make a little extra money.

Understanding Your Natural Instincts

As you’re contemplating the year ahead this Holiday season, consider a Kolbe profile. It’s an assessment tool that we use to understand how each of us solves problems and how we naturally go about doing things if left to our own devices.

A Corporation of One

A job defines us. I know mine defines me.

Sometimes that can run right by us. I think about folks who worked making buggy whips or carburetors or the Polaroid camera. I think of the hundreds of thousands of people at Kodak that had their world changed over the past decade, well before the company declared bankruptcy last year.
