Success

The 80/20 Rule

Most people, not all, but most, do busy work, not productive work. The focus on the 80 percent that is easy, not the 20 percent that is hard. Or the 20 percent that is going to make a difference in your life. Let me give you a typical to do list for some folks: Shower/Shave, and get ready. Drive to work. Listen to radio. Work 8/10 hours. Do what is urgent, not important. Boss calls, meeting, reports, answering the phone. Grab food. Cook, and clean. Maybe run kids to after school actives. Perhaps, some laundry, yard work, or house cleaning [Read More Now...]

The T.E.A. Principle

One of my mentors said, “Jim. Do you cut your grass?”. I answered “yes.” He then said, “That is the reason you are not rich.” What on earth was he talking about? The answer was simple. Either you invest time, or you spend time. I was spending time. Spending time on the wrong activities and efforts. Therefore getting the wrong result. If I had spent that time working on revenue generation, rather than saving 5 bucks an hour (you can always find some one to cut your grass for 5 bucks an hour), I could get a greater result in my [Read More Now...]

20 Tips to get a BETTER deal!

1. Everything is negotiable Keep an open mind about what is negotiable. You may believe retail prices in stores are the bottom line, but they are not!

Negotiate when your opponent is happy or content. They’ll be less likely to give you opposition and say no than when they are unhappy or feeling discontent. When you have the advantage, all of the pressure is on them. You should also [Read More Now...]

Students (and friends) ask me occasionally about my Faith. Well I grew up in a catholic family. Going to church a lot when I was younger. Was even a Wise Man in the christmas play.

So I got different messages growing up. Hard core and a little lighter. As a teenager, in high school I went to Sat night service, a little more gear to the younger generation. Music too.

Flat Balls Don’t Bounce

Millionaires are by no means exempt from failures. They have losses, make mistakes in judgment, and screw it up occasionally. They keep a positive attitude, no matter what.
