  Ever notice most people who are motivated have lots of energy, are focused and accomplish great things on a consistent basis? They move with a sense of purpose and with determination, like they are on a mission.  You can feel their energy when they walk into the room.  People gravitate towards them and engage in discussions or simply listen to what they are saying. Achieving success is one of my reasons for being motivated.  Accomplishing many things and crossing off items on...

  I sometimes catch myself asking someone their name right after I'm introduced.  Was I really focused and listening? Here are some tips on enhancing your listening skills.  Feel free to share your good and not so good experiences. Don't think about your response while the other person is talking.  Ever notice as soon as the speaker is finished talking, the other person automatically has a response.  Many times this automatic response has nothing to do with the speaker' conversation.  Check it out...

  The challenging part of the Technology Sector is it changes hourly!  How do you embrace change? 1. Open-Minded It is not easy to always be open-minded, however, we must always have an open-mind. Relying on just the past and doing things the same way will not necessarily result in future success. Just because "we always did it that way" does not mean it is the best way. Look at the constant change, the number of new requests and the fast pace of business....

  It appears everyone procrastinates at different degrees.   Some like to get things done right away, some like to have a well thought out plan and most use a combination of these two school of thoughts and yet wait until they get near the deadline to even start!   The rationale is we have thought about it and planned it in our mind, while in reality we have procrastinated until it is almost too late.   The pressure to get it done at...

  Here are 3 questions to ask yourself on a daily basis. 1. What should I be doing differently? If we want to keep growing, be more successful, then doing the same thing is not the answer.   What is your answer to what you should be doing differently?   I learned how to let go, delegate and re-prioritize tasks over the years.   This has helped us achieve growth and continued success. After 30 years in my career, I get up every day and challenge myself...

  How do you manage your time to be more effective?  This topic keeps resurfacing in many discussions with business owners, managers, employees and when mentoring entrepreneurs. My good friend, Nick Russell of Russtek Media recently blogged about this same topic.  His favourite line on this subject requires discipline:   "If you set your mind to it, you will be able to stay motivated and work from home and be as productive as you would be in an office setting." We have our habits...

  Do you notice most successful people are also the polite ones? These are the people who step forward at a networking event to greet the newcomer, make them feel welcomed and introduce them to others.  They excuse themselves from their current conversation to focus on the person entering the room who seems to be a bit uncertain. When conversing with a polite person, they tend to listen a whole lot more.  You walk away feeling very good about a great discussion and...

  This week I've hit a milestone of 30 years since my professional career started right after graduating from the University of Windsor with a Bachelor of Commerce degree! Thought I'd take this opportunity to thank so many terrific people who have supported and helped me along this awesome journey!  Thanks to Carmela for her love, support and always being here for me.   Here's to our 25th wedding anniversary in June!  To Haley and Syd for their love and keeping things in...

  This week we revisit why entrepreneurs take calculated risks. If you always play it safe then you have made the choice of not being an Entrepreneur. When you take all the time necessary to explore all the options and know the end result to guarantee practically zero risk, then you are not an Entrepreneur. Entrepreneurs do take calculated risks most of the time.  Time is of the essence when making decisions.  You have to take a snapshot, make some presumptions and calculate...

  Are you finding there are so many things to do in a day and you just cannot seem to keep up?  The answer is to slow down so you can go faster.  Seriously that is the answer. I know what you are thinking:   "the answer is to go faster and multi-task".   You will find out in the long run you are completely wrong.  We are not "designed" to multi-task.   Here is an example:   have you ever been in a meeting where someone is...
