I’ve always been taught that if you aren’t actively taking steps to further your education, you are probably going in the other direction. Information has never been so readily available to the masses. This allows others in your industry to have access to education that will help them climb over you in position.

Put meaning behind your effort and the results will be there.
Sweat, but don’t sweat the small stuff When you first get started going back into the gym, it’s overwhelming. You look around and there is so much going on. What the heck is that guy doing?

Here are four tips to avoid being the bro, bro.
Here is a book review on The Power of Moments by Chip and Dan Heath. Great book on how to create powerful moments in your workplace and life.
