When You Feel Stuck

When you make your own game in life and business, there’s a tight pairing between an opportunity and a problem and it has one word: freedom.

The Town Square and the Marketplace

Now, more than ever before, it’s important that we develop and nurture a platform where we can be heard. At the very same time that these tools become easier and easier to use, the world is more noisy.

Get Back On It

I just restarted my use of Trello. I’d fallen off the wagon. I’m about to restart my gym work. I’d fallen off the wagon. It doesn’t matter. Start. Start again. Get back on it. Do the work. If you fall off, don’t pick on yourself. Just get back on. Whiners talk about what went wrong. […] The post Get Back On It appeared first on

Why Is It So Hard to Make Content?

“I don’t know what to write!” “When I write, it comes out wrong.” “I get jammed up and stuck for ideas.” Does this sound like you? I started blogging back in 1998, when they called it journaling. I was terrible at it. Most of my posts were about my own opinion on things. There was […] The post Why Is It So Hard to Make Content? appeared first on

Work on Habits, Not Goals

At the start of the year, I saw a quote by James Clear that really stuck with me. He said if you want more success, work on your habits, not your goals.

Leadership at all levels knows the story: there’s more to do, fewer people around, and everything is moving faster. In the absence of step-by-step leadership, and with the velocity of change in business, it’s important that we educate everyone in the organization to a new kind of personal leadership.

Business and Life are a Game

I’m working on my next book, Make Your Own Game. The first major premise of the book is that business and life are a game.

Does Influencer Marketing Help Your Business?

“Influencer marketing” isn’t new. It has been around for at least a decade in its latest form, which is “Hey, let’s get bloggers to talk about our stuff!” Lots of companies wonder if it’s the right move for their product. Let’s talk about that. Show More Summary

Here’s everyone right now: I’ve got a lot to do. New year, new me. I’m going to do this and that and this and… It doesn’t work.

My Morning Rituals

People always want to know what “successful” people do in their mornings. You can google “morning rituals” and you’ll see tons of really thoughtful and well-considered information. It will also be sterilized and made to make it seem as if the person in question is a saint. Show More Summary

Why Should I Have a Website

Sing the Hell Out of Your Song

I’ve come to realize that one big challenge we have is that we have to tell the world how we help them, and we have to do it often.
