Hello there this was a podcast experiment.
9 Episodes
John D. Rockefeller famously said "I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts." He said it in very different time when digital technology was not as prominent as it is today. In this episode, I share two key ideas on how you could actually leverage technology and not necessarily people, for dramatically increasing your productivity and making your work day far more exciting.
In his book High Output Management, Andrew Grove, ex-CEO of Intel, asked: "Which five pieces of information would you want to look at each day, immediately upon arriving at your office?" In this episode, I explore how to think about this, and I share one idea that could help you define the 5 things in a quick and very easy way.
Do you see marketing as a cost? an expenditure? maybe as a necessary evil? Or do you consider it part of the ongoing activities of your team? And how do you differentiate between marketing and advertising? On this episode, I'm sharing some insights from a conversation I had with a private school business officer that had an Aha! moment during our call.
Tony Robbins mentioned in a podcast with Russell Brunson, that if you do the same thing for 10 years, you don't have 10 years of experience. You have 1 year of experience and the remaining 9, you're just repeating the same activity. So what can you do to make sure you don't find yourself in such a position in 9 years from now?
I was reading an article by David Perell on serendipity and I wanted to share this with you. I know many of you are missing out on personal and professional development opportunities as you ignore the power of serendipity. In this episode I share some examples of things you can do to maximize the benefits that serendipity can generate for you.
A few days ago I was speaking with the chief financial officer of a large school district and she was telling me that she is a power user of Linkedin. As I'm sure many of you already know, she's one of the few people within schools who use Linkedin frequently. This conversation got me thinking, and I was wondering why educators and school administrators don't use Linkedin, when many of them use Twitter quite a lot in fact.
In the early 2000s most professionals in the technology/online/digital space were constantly saying that they are busy. It was part of their identity and if someone wasn't using that, they seemed unprofessional. In recent years, the trend of "being always busy" has been replaced by a far more interesting trend: the "minimum viable effort". Basically the focus is on the complete opposite of the busy trend, and the objective is to be as productive as you can in the shortest possible amount of time. The ultimate focus is on protecting your time without saying that you are busy or being busy necessarily.
Most people think that schools and sales having nothing in common, but that's not true. In this episode, I explain how salespeople solve in their businesses a common problem that I see in the hundreds of schools I speak with every year.
Hello everyone, this is a new podcast I'm going to try where I will be sharing an idea, a thought, or a concern I have at any given day. The concept is very simple: If I find something interesting, chances are other people will find it interesting as well.
