It doesn’t matter if it’s The Odyssey, The Hobbit, or Monty Python and the Holy Grail, every great story about a journey involves getting lost. Why?
Because storytellers know even the wildest fantasy has to be grounded in reality. And we’re all familiar with feeling lost, sidetracked, and stalled out.
If you paid me a dollar for every minute I’ve spent on a conference call in my life, I probably would never have to work again. But I like working—and that’s exactly why I don’t like conference calls.
I know there are forms of business communication less efficient that conference calls, but I’m having trouble thinking of them right now. People drop in and out, talk over each other, lose track of who’s saying what—and the more voices on the line, the more confusing it all becomes.
Do two or three of these back to back, and it’s enough to make you doubt the future of the species. Thankfully, I’ve got the solution—at least for me and my team. But I bet it’ll work for you too.

I’m a big advocate of goal setting because I’ve personally benefited from it. But I’m also amazed how much the science of goal setting explains my personal experience.
Whether working as an independent entrepreneur or a corporate executive, I’ve seen personal and organizational goal setting reap big rewards—and the research shows why.
