I love this. Loyalty has value for it's own sake, not as a means to an end. When we are loyal to our team no matter what, it shows in so many ways, and if we aren't loyal, that shows too.

I have a wife, five (almost 6) kids, two dogs, and a cat. My life is full, fulfilling, and of course, complex at times. I start work early while still seeing the kids a bit before school. I do school pickups and sometimes drop-offs. I often play the role of…

I love this approach. We spend so much time doing things that don't really move things forward. If we will just stop and think about what will move things forward, we can focus on the right tasks, not just the tasks that carry the illusion of progress.

I love this, thanks for writing it. So many people only measure revenue or profit, but there is so much more to being successful than that. For me, I'm successful when I'm financially stable, have freedom, and can spend lots of time with my family.

I find this is true in my life. When I'm doing really well it's because I'm doing a few simple things consistently. When I'm doing poorly, it's when I'm slack on the simple things. Small things add up over time, creating momentum, leading to success.

Great point and all too easy to miss in the day to day craziness of life and business. It seems to me the reason that many bosses don't set expectactions is that they don't take the time to thinking, plan, and set goals for the organization. Or, if they do take that time, they don't take the time to let the plan play out when something unexpected pops up.

I love this concept. Too often I run in one direciton for a little while, give up too quickly, and then go in another direction. I would be much further along if I had always moved incrementally in the same direction for a long period of time.

I ran a virtual company for 10 years. We had amazing culure and very little BS. Meetings were short and to the point. But, even with that, we all geninely liked one another and liked being a team. "Office Culture" as most define it is dead and dying. You can create virtual culture without undue burens on your team, you just have to be thoughtful about it.
