In sports, the only thing a player can truly control is effort. The same applies to business. The only thing any entrepreneur, salesperson or anyone in any position can control is their effort.
I had to kick myself in the ass and recommit to getting up early, staying up late and consuming everything I possibly could to get an edge. I had to commit to making the effort to be as productive as I possibly could. It meant making sure that every hour of the day that I could contact a customer was selling time, and when customers were sleeping, I was doing things that prepared me to make more sales and to make my company better.
And finally, I had to make sure I wasn’t lying to myself about how hard I was working. It would have been easy to judge effort by how many hours a day passed while I was at work. That’s the worst way to measure effort.
Effort is measured by setting goals and getting results. What did I need to do to close this account? What did I need to do to win this segment of business? What did I need to do to understand this technology or that business better than anyone? What did I need to do to find an edge? Where does that edge come from, and how was I going to get there?
The one requirement for success in our business lives is effort. Either you make the commitment to get results or you don't.

I can't remember how I heard about the post...maybe an email from IXO? I really liked what you wrote because it answers the impossible question of why AUS is a great study abroad location even though it is not an Arabic immersion environment.

Introduction

Ashi Sheth is an IT professional with an established track record for turning around outdated, underperforming, and unstable IT environments in the US and abroad. He is well-versed in ERP and business systems, high availability data resources, network and data center design, Cisco digital media solutions, and virtualization tools.

Currently as Director of Information Technology at American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, Ashi redesigned the existing IT infrastructure to optimize resources and mitigate cost-bleeding expenses. Under his leadership, a training program was implemented that eliminated the need to hire costly consultants and reduced operating expenses exponentially. He built structured processes for IT procurement that allowed the department to make more strategic and cost-effective IT purchases and his attention to IT product acquisition, process, cost, and quality helped position the university as a technology leader in the region.

Earlier, as a Systems Engineering Manager at the University of the Pacific in California, Ashi replaced antiquated IT systems with robust tools and systems and introduced new technologies that resulted in lowered systems maintenance and costs, a more stable and streamlined IT infrastructure, and an enhanced reputation for quality and performance within the university.

As a Computing Support Services Manager for Avaya Communications/Lucent Technologies in California, Ashi supported over 9,000 users and following the company’s spin off, he was retained to maintain one of Avaya’s largest corporate database centers. Previously as MIS Manager for Applied Aerospace Structures Corp in California, he rebuilt technical resources following a company buy out and helped contribute to more than a two-fold increase in company earnings in just 5 years. Ashi spent 4 years as a Lead Computer Operator at a rapidly growing San Francisco Bay area clinical services firm before becoming a Network Administrator for Sun-Maid Raisin Growers in California.

Ashi holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Technology & Strategic Corporate Communications from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA.
