    The Importance of Productivity, Focus, and Measurement

    By Oct 23,2017

    When I was in school, I would study at least a couple of hours each day in the library. While there, I noticed that the best students were always very focused. They were not distracted like poorer students were. A poor student looks around and looks up frequently. The poor students try to start conversations, make jokes, and laugh at things going on in the library. When I was studying with the best students, I could feel their energy and focus. They blocked out external stimuli and their study time was extremely productive. In fact, just about...

    Choose Your Negotiations Wisely

    By Oct 18,2017

    Many years ago, I hired a very successful and well-known recruiter to work for our company. This recruiter was a “superstar” sort of recruiter, who generated millions of dollars in fees wherever he went. Prior to hiring this recruiter, I had spent a few weeks getting to know him over several dinners and trips to his hometown. I got to know his significant other, spent time in his home, and he in mine. By the time I was ready to make him an offer, I was very happy about hiring him and his future with our recruiting firm.

    Avoid Sophisticated and Saturated Markets

    By Oct 10,2017

    One of the biggest mistakes people make in their job searches is going after jobs in sophisticated markets.  A sophisticated and saturated market is one that’s populated by a lot of people like you—with your qualifications, background, and so forth. If you’re competing for a job in a sophisticated market, you’re going to be more harshly judged and more likely eliminated than if you’re looking in a less sophisticated market.  The most sophisticated markets will be the most concerned about things like: Where you went to school Whom you...

    You Should Not Dabble: To Succeed It’s All or Nothing

    By Oct 17,2017

    My last helicopter lesson was on a Christmas morning several years ago. I’m very glad that I made that my last helicopter lesson. I’d shown up at the flight school around 6:00 am. The previous evening, I’d been out pretty late and was not in a mood to fly a helicopter that morning. I had to go to school at that hour, however, because it was the only time slot I was willing to pay for (it’s cheaper to rent a helicopter early in the morning), and I also had a full-time job to be at during the day. I
