One of the most important things to do as a business owner, or as a person for that matter, is to define your definition of success.

Today, I’m talking about the comparison game. We’ve all played it, and I think I’ve played it more than most. I’ve spent a lot of time comparing myself to others.

Thinking About My Personality I think a lot about my personality. I’ve taken the Meyers Briggs test and the Enneagram test. But I actually don’t get consistent results when I take either test.

I experience an overwhelming desire to talk about things. To get them out in the open. But talking about it doesn’t seem to be enough. I don’t feel settled until I share it with someone. When I moved to California last year, I realized that I’m a verbal processor! I hadn’t put it into words […]

In my last post I shared my journey to productivity and effectiveness. I mentioned a couple influential resources that helped me get where I am now.
