3 Magic Words

“Knowledge without action is like having no knowledge at all.”

Bob Burg, perhaps best known as the co-author of “The Go-Giver” said that, and I think it is one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard.  You can be the most knowledgeable person on the planet, but if you don’t take action, no one will ever know; more important, no one will ever benefit from your knowledge.

Well, What Did You Expect?

So much of what happens to us is influenced by our expectations.  For instance, when I go to the grocery store or the mall, I get the absolute best parking spot in the lot.  When I go to get my hair cut, the primo spot, right in front of the salon, opens up just as I’m ready to pull in.  When this happens I feel grateful (and a little giddy), because it’s such a great example of the Continue reading

In addition to Paul and Bob, some of the best known speakers on the planet were there including Les Brown and John Maxwell.
