Work Update, and The Importance of Being Able to Walk Away

I’d like to cap off this week of work-related posts with a quick update. I ended up talking to my manager about my plans: I didn’t say exactly what I was going to do, just that I was going to be leaving within the next 8 months “to start my own business.” I’m lucky in … Continue reading Work Update, and The Importance of Being Able to Walk Away

I’ve been feeling very ill for the past few days - literally bedridden - and so this week’s posts are late. They are also going to be very short but I wanted to get something out so that I could continue my “three posts a week” streak. I’ll release a post like this one tomorrow … Continue reading Feeling Ill, Short Post (Approach at Any Time vs Being Off the Clock)

Lessons From This Weekend’s Coaching #3

Here’s another edition of this series. This time the student’s name was Mark and here’s his testimonial.
