You Can Outsource Just About Anything, Except Your Decision Making

Lately, we’ve been looking at the relationship between “who” versus “how”. In other words, the “how” refers to a task or job we need to do. How we’d go about learning it, how we’d put the various pieces of the job together to complete it. Depending on what’s involved, it might take several months. But we could free up a lot of time and avoid the hassle of having to learn a new skill, with the inevitable mistakes along the way, if we found a qualified “who” with the experience and skill to get the job done right away.

Showing Up for Success

Have you ever heard of the term “con man”? It’s short for “confidence man”, and it’s thought of as a negative term because someone has so much confidence that they end up convincing us to do bad things.

Navigating the Business Highway

How many times has this happened to you? You’re in the left-hand lane, cruising smoothly down the highway at 70 miles an hour, and then all of a sudden, traffic slows down to 30 miles an hour. Then it speeds up again before grinding to a halt again—and this pattern continues over and over, much like the action of an accordion. Eventually, you see why. There’s an accident on your right-hand side and cars are stuck everywhere.

Don’t be a Know-it-all

Stephen Hawking, who passed away this year, once said, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” I like this quote a lot because it’s something I realized about 30 years ago when I was trying to learn a lot of different things and there was just way too much for me to understand.

The Four C’s

I had a client of mine recently pass away at the age of 94. He was an amazing gentleman who truly epitomized the Four C’s, which is something I learned from The Strategic Coach® Program.

The Four Agreements

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom,” and you know the rest. This quote from A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens leads me to think of another book, The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.

Carpe Diem

In the 1989 movie, Dead Poets Society, Robin Williams plays John Keating, a literature teacher at a boys’ academy. Keating starts off his class with the words “Carpe Diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary.” This great quote hits home for me as this is something I try to do every day in my own life.

Stellar Service

I love to read, but it wasn’t until about five years ago that I realized if I wasn’t getting much out of a book after reading 20 pages, I should just stop reading it. I would just force myself to slog through a book I wasn’t interested in, and as a result, reading could sometimes be a chore and ultimately, a waste of my time.

Artificial Intelligence: Taking Our Jobs?

Do you remember in the cartoon The Jetsons, there was this cute robot named Rosie? She cleaned the house and did all sorts of things for the Jetson family. Well, that’s Artificial Intelligence, or AI.
