Throw Yourself In The Deep End!

I was thinking this month about ‘getting the job done’ and what it takes to do so.  For me a lot of times I like to work under pressure.  I like deadlines and I like the challenge.  It’s almost like a game to me.  A game I get paid for.  It’s the old cliché about the college student who doesn’t start writing a paper till the night before it’s due.  I was a little like that, but mostly it was because I was a little lazy.  I’m getting off track though.  My point is, I think it’s important to throw yourself in the deep end sometimes to keep your skills sharp.

How Do You Define Success & Passion? What Does Motivation Mean To You?

I almost titled this article, “The Most Successful Business Doesn’t Mean The Best Business (At Least To Me)” but then I decided to take a little different approach.  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my motivations and what exactly motivates me.  I usually, to a fault, try to funnel down my own personality so that I know how to deal with myself, business and life (in general) better.  Sometimes I think I think too much!

While I was thinking about my motivations in business I started thinking about how I get freaked out when I see a badly run business do well.  I’ve seen a lot smarter people fail with their business over much less.  I’ve pondered it for a long time.  How come people go to all these seminars, take classes or even go to a business coach and fail but some seemly ‘bad business person‘ can be successful.


Hi, I'm a marketing guy, who knows how to make websites. Every so often I see or think of things, that will be of value to others. It's either that or I just need to 'rage-vent.'
