When Are You at Your Best? - Thoughts from Kevin

5/7/2021
You might know that I grew up on a farm. And on a farm, you work late into the evening when needed. You see, my Dad was a night person. So it was not uncommon for me to work very late into the evening. Because of this, I grew up thinking I was a night person. That is until I wasn’t around my Dad and wasn’t needed to work those nighttime shifts anymore. And it was then that I quickly realized I am at my best in the morning and not in the evening. It took me awhile to figure this out, but...

Saying No with Love - Thoughts from Kevin

4/23/2021
The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything. You’ve gotta keep control of your time, and you can’t unless you say no. You can’t let people set your agenda in life. – Warren Buffett Now who am I to argue with Warren Buffett? I completely agree that we must be protective of our time and that how we spend our time is directly correlated to our success. And yet…I am not advocating that we immediately say NO to...

Don't Forget Your Phone - Thoughts from Kevin

4/9/2021
When I was growing up, most households only had one phone and it was usually in the kitchen. And teens spent alllll the time on that phone. Today’s teens also spend a lot of time on the phone, as do most of us. These tiny devices consume so much of our time and attention, although we rarely use them anymore for what they were originally designed for – to TALK on them. And today, I’m reminding you of all of the reasons and benefits why the next time you pick up your phone, it should be to...

Transaction or Interaction - Thoughts from Kevin

3/26/2021
In a fast-paced (and often remote working) world, we seem to run our days on “transactions” – short-term, project-driven tasks.

That’s why it’s important that we balance transactions with interactions. Learn the difference and therefore how to recognize this balance in your life from this episode. From...

Self Care isn't Selfish - Thoughts from Kevin

3/12/2021
In the world today, people are running hard and fast, many so focused on taking care of others – be that their children, spouse, clients, teammates, students or their patients – that they aren’t taking the time to take care of themselves.

Preparing for the Future of Flexible Work - Thoughts from Kevin

3/5/2021
As of today, I cannot predict the future of work – for you or for your business. But I do know one thing. Whatever that future holds, work is going to be different…again. I do not believe we will ever return to work as we knew it in 2019. I predict that we will have an amalgamation of different forms of flexible work. – Some companies will send all of their employees back all at once. – Some will send half now and half later. – Some will allow their employees to choose where they want...
