Want to make a leader better...
 
"The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism." - Norman Vincent Peale

There's nothing wrong with accepting compliments and praise. But there is definitely a problem when you can't take honest criticism. It's not always easy, but it's important. 

Appreciate both the praise and the criticism for what they are. You will always be better for it. 

And with that I bid you goodnight from dustn.tv!

The "Change Gap" - arises from the pace and complexity of change growing exponentially while improvements in the traditional, industrial approach to managing (or controlling) change are unable to keep pace. In fact the gap grows every day with a compounding deficit increasing rapidly — http://www.torbenrick.eu/t/r/srg

Personally, having lived in NC, VA, PA, MI, MA, FL, ID and TX, location may influence "happiness" but it doesn't make you happy. It's more of a state or mind than a state of residence.

10 Things Only Lousy Managers Say:

Check your habits against this post by +Liz Ryan 
God bless the bad managers we've struggled under, the toads and zombies who've taught us so many valuable leadership lessons  (all lessons of the How Not to Lead variety). We still remember those managers years later, with their tempers, idiosyncracies and neuroses. Sometimes it takes years to recognize the value of the [...]

Great list of ways to jumpstart your day
 
6 simple rituals to reach your potential everyday
Full article http://buff.ly/1d4eZNu

1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up.
Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh.

2. Define your top 3.
“What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?”

3. The 50/10 Rule.
Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between.

4. Move and sweat daily.

5. Express gratitude.

6. Reflect daily.

Which of these can you add to your routine to reach your potential?

Providing B2B organizations with product leadership for over 20 years
Introduction

Putting all the typical bio's you've read aside, I was born with marketing DNA and have developed the skills of discovering market problems, then sythesizing and communicating these into strategic value and products that people want to buy.

Most people would say, WOW, that's pretty sweet! Others would say; it's product management.

Either way, I use my talents and experience to influence companies and teams to engage in making right decisions before wasting time, energy and resources on products and services no one wants.  

I've enabled great teams, created some amazing go-to-market strategies and ensured that gut instinct and epiphanies were eliminated for over two decades.

This is a great place to rent bikes for the beach and the trails. The team is great and they know how to serve their customers. I rented two bikes for the trails and they provided helmets, bags for gear etc. I needed a smaller bike and one of the owners, said, "Use mine. It's on the back of my car rake, but we'll set it up for your wife." How awesome is that. Beyond rentals, they are a full-service shop that sells and repairs as well. When I'm back in an the Sandestin area, I'll rent again

When I'm in Chapel Hill, I try to stop at SBK for a fresh biscuit. They are light and fluffy and not greasy. I'm from Chapel Hill and have a southern Mom for a cook, so I know what's a great biscuit. Stop by this hidden gem and you won't regret it.

Cool little airport. 4 gates and Southwest and Frontier fly there. If you like BBQ, there's a Famous Dave's there.

The service was prompt and the wait staff offered a few suggestions on the menu change. Overall, the experience was good. Of course, the cheesecake is awesome.

Gotta love a Texas tradition like Buc-ee's. Found the store to be clean and have what I want. Always have the lowest priced gas in the area and you can even get a bag of ice for $.089.
