In business, learning is a life-long experience aimed improving self, helping others to do the same, and adding innovation, & invention.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Necessity walks hand-in-hand with Courage and their finest offspring is Confidence.

We must not underestimate the courage and self-confidence required to think and act in new ways.

We must not forget the key role Necessity can play, especially in the face of major challenges.

Courage and Confidence are the keys to creativity, invention, & innovation.

You gotta go the first mile before you start talkin' about going the extra mile.

The Thinkin' Behind The Tweet

Everyone knows, "Talk's cheap". Yet, some people forget it. They get all carried away talking about going extra miles when they haven't managed to complete the first mile. They have taken some steps, cut some corners, etc., however, they haven't got that first mile done yet.

Clichés are cheaper than most talk: Actions are far more telling; Achieved goals speak volumes.

As your creativity increases your ability to receive good advice decreases.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Creativity is one of the most threatening commodities. As a rule, when people observe it happening around them they feel threatened. This causes them to construct opinions and express them. When you show people your creativity the amount of advice you receive is sure to increase...

But A BIG OUCH on the quality of that advice should you choose to heed it.

What habit-thing lurks around Urgency, allowing it to defy logic and beat out Importance, time after time?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we face urgent situations they almost always capture our attention and action...even if we know we should be doing more-important things. 

Urgency is always hanging around the roots of Bad Habits
