January #WisdomWednesday Roundup


Each week, I write a quick hit of “wisdom” on Wednesdays and post it to linkedin. I admit, I *LOVE* the short form, low maintenance writing style. Have your idea, write about it, post it and GO! It’s definitely more of a quick reward than writing for the blog.

Here’s the #WednesdayWisdon posts from January:

Busy Work vs Important Work

Simple recipes often make the best results (in BBQ + Business)
Texas makes the best brisket in the world. I need one of those signs that says “change my mind”. Their recipe is incredibly simple. Salt. Pepper. Smoke. The big thing is that they execute at a level of mastery. How can you apply this same simple recipe to your business?

Dig deeper to discover the true outcomes you want to achieve
When we dig deeper, beyond the metrics, we can find the real, root outcomes. These are the most valuable, as they connect the metrics back to purpose.

When your self-trust breaks down
It happens to all of us. Things start to go wrong, then more goes wrong, and eventually we end up in that downward spiral. How do you rebuild trust in yourself and break free? Read more to find out.
