A Short History of Success

BridgeToSuccessWhat does it really mean to be successful? Can we change society’s definition of success and our personal definition of success? Those are the questions we will explore this week on seven minutes in the morning.

To Get Better Requires Change!


Let’s get straight to the bottom line… if you are unhappy with where you are, then you have to change. Business as usual produces results as usual! If you wan’t different results, you have to do things differently.

And change scares the crap out of us!

I’ve said many times that the pain of the present will continue to trump the fear of the future (and thus limiting choices because we’re unwilling to change) UNTIL the pain of the present exceeds our level of tolerance.

So that really leaves two choices, ratchet up the pain of the present (uncomfortable, especially when we do it to ourselves) or crank-up the prospective pleasure!

All that and more in today’s episode of 7 Minutes In the Morning. Enjoy…

The Reason We Work


Work has become a 4-letter-word. Something we dread every Monday morning! A 2012 survey by the Department of Labor reports that the average employee is actively disengaged from their assigned duties 70% of the day!

And yet that same employee will go home on the weekend or at the end of the day and work into the wee hours of the next day on a hobby, project or side-hustle. Why? What’s the difference?

I believe its because that project or side-hustle has meaning for them and that gives them a motivation behind the work.

Can we bring that same love for work (yes, I called it ‘love’) to our day-job or our business? Should we?

These are all aspects of Work That Matters that we explore in this mornings episode of 7 Minutes In the Morning! Enjoy!
