Running Time: 30 minutes
Inside and outside of business, I talk about the things you can do to make you stand out from your competition. Pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone will allow for growth. Keeping yourself out of your comfort zone will result in constant growth, and daily challenges that prove you are ready for anything.
My Space vs. Facebook, Yahoo vs. Google, and Microsoft vs. Apple. Large companies become settled in their old way of doing things until they are overcome by someone smaller, more flexible, and ready to adapt on a moments notice. No matter how many years you have been doing your thing, you need to be knowledgeable like an old master, yet act like a young startup. Set your goal, quickly make a plan, then act. I do it everyday. Do you?

Sure, you know that you are the best at what you do. Other people know your really good too, you prove it everyday. And yet, the guy in the next cubicle gets the promotion. Or when you bid on that freelance job, but don't get the job awarded too you. Of course you can say that it's their loss. But, what is it that they have, and you don't?

Clutter. I hate clutter, Of course, I hate cleaning too. But, finding a balance will not only make things easier to find, but fill your day with the ZEN of a clean office…. Ok, fine. Let's just be honest. The only reason to clean is to get your wife off your back about not doing anything around the house. She always complains about washing the dishes, and conveniently forgets who puts out the trash every week, shovels, mows, and puts the gutter back on the house after the most recent storm. Do you see her doing that? Oh, no, of course not.
Seven months after becoming a full time freelancer, I talk about all the days I spend on the beach, drinking Mai-Tai's, and watching the half naked woman walk by. I discuss the hours spent listening to my favorite music, and all the fun I had while scuba diving off the coast of Hawaii. Of course, then I realize I have that deadline to do, so I stop looking at random websites, or staring blankly at wall, and get back to retouching. Oh, happy days.
