Book of the Week and More

Each week, I'll provide you with 3 brilliant learning bursts in these categories: entrepreneur, professional, and personal. Everyone should consider themselves all three of these things.

If you stay at home or work for a business, you might not consider yourself an entrepreneur. However, you should still develop an entrepreneurial mindset. All that means is that you are proactive, always looking to innovate, and are in charge of your own hustle. 

Here are your Brilliant Learning Bursts this week!

Common interests motivate us to befriend some people over others, and the same applies to building and sustaining business relationships. It is important to identify the interests of your key influencers. Read more in an article I wrote for biz journal:

Make a to-do list of no more than 5 to 6 items. When you have more than a dozen items on your list, you psychologically overwhelm yourself into thinking there aren’t enough hours in the day to get everything done. Think about the 5-6 things that, if a fire drill happens during the day, you would still be able to get these critical items accomplished.  Then, before you leave for the day (or after you knock out the entire list), create the next list of 5-6 things that need to be completed. That way, you can hit the ground running during your peak performance time (before you check your email).

For your personal learning burst, I want to recommend the book: The Fish that Ate the Whale. learn more about the book and view my three takeaways below!
