#097: How to Do More of What You Love (And Less of What You Don’t) [Podcast]

Recently, I recorded two podcasts on the subject of delegation. The first dealt with the principles of delegation (Episode 42). The second suggested how you might delegate even if you don’t have a staff (Episode 43).

Why People Who Sleep Longer Achieve More

Our society puts a high value on achievement but not much on rest. I hear people brag about how much they work and play but never how much they sleep—usually the opposite. But what if sleep could help you achieve more?

My team and I just finished launching the Get Noticed! Theme for WordPress, and I am fried. We were down late and up early, day after day. Late-night emergencies and early-morning crises were the norm.

How to Live a Life That Matters: 5 Lessons from Maya Angelou

The desire to create lasting transformation in the world is what really drives us as leaders, right? Since the news of her death, I’ve been thinking a lot about Maya Angelou. Her legacy offers several valuable insights for living a life of true significance.

#096: What Leaders Need Even More Than the Right Answers [Podcast]

When I started out in my career, the key to success was having the right answers. Those who advanced in their careers the quickest were seemingly the ones who had the most answers.

While this is definitely important in some situations—especially when responding to the people you are accountable to—it is not the key to success as a leader. There is something even more important than having the right answers.

What Motivates Your Drive to Be More Productive?

Ever since I began blogging, productivity has been one of my most popular topics. But I’m convinced we’re not always productive for the right reasons. Maybe this is why many people are productive but miserable.

Which Veterans Would You Like to Thank?

Today is Memorial Day in the United States. For many, this simply means an opportunity to take the day off, relaxing with family and friends. But there’s more to it than that.

Memorial Day is a day we set aside to commemorate those veterans who have died in the service of our country. It was first enacted to honor those in the Union Army who died in the American Civil War. After the first World War, it was expanded to include American casualties of any war or military action.

I am really excited about the upcoming Platform Conference. Mark your calendars for November 9-11, 2014. I will be hosting the entire conference but will present two sessions.
