Spiritual Foundations

Speaking plainly is a shocking and radical way of communicating.

Jesus said you should “let your yes mean yes, and your no me no.”  Speaking the truth so plainly is disarming and incredibly persuasive. Try it.

Special Announcements

  1. I’m attending the Platform Conference in Nashville. If you do business online, you MUST attend this conference that helps you “get noticed in a noisy world.” It’s being put on by Michael Hyatt and Ken Davis. My friends Stu McLaren and Carrie Wilkerson are speaking. I’m also looking forward to meeting  Jeff Goins, Cliff Ravenscraft, Pat FlynnJohn Saddington, Michele Cushatt, and Andrew Buckman. Unlike most conferences, there’s not a single speaker I’m not excited to hear and to meet. Get a ticket while you can!
  2. Our exclusive Las Vegas workshop is more than half-full. If you’re interested in participating, you will need to contact my office immediately.
  3. Next week I will make a special announcement about a brand-new event.

    As always, enjoyed the podcast. I like the “do less” idea in theory, it’s just convincing the boss that it’s a good idea. If a boss can see how much work you get done in 4 days, don’t you think they would want to eek as much work out of you on day #5? Just a thought.

    Keep ‘em coming…….. Thanks. :)

    I have really cut back on my so-called “multitasking” and have found that I when I focus on just one thing at a time, I can get it done quicker and with better output.

    Some days I used to have so many browser tabs open at once, for unrelated tasks. Now if I have multiple tabs open, they are usually all related to what I’m doing at the moment. Thanks for clarifying the multitasking myth.
