7 Ways to Use This Time to Craft Simplicity Into Your Life

1. Begin by creating a flow chart of your daily activity, and then aim each act toward simpler work with greater results.

2. Look for simple solutions, simple pleasures and simple ways to accomplish maximum results with minimal effort.

3. Stop multitasking. Study after study has proven it never works…for anyone, even those that claim they are great at it.

4. Examine your work for the Rube Golbergs that are sapping your energy.

5. Then, ask yourself things like:

a. How can I simplify my sales effort?

b. How can I help simplify marketing?

c. How can I maximize follow up efforts?

d. How can I simplify our returns process?

e. How can I simplify the In-service of clients?

f. How can I simplify the buyers’ journey?

g. How can I simplify our billing efforts?

h. How can I simplify gaining referrals?

6. Then, do the same thing in your personal life.

7. Focus on simplicity in everything, every day.

Recruiter News – How Relentless Grit Helps You Win

When most people think of Nike, they tend to think of super athletes who Just Do IT! Folks like Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, LeBron, Federer, Sharapova; maybe a few fallen stars, like Lance Armstrong and Pistorius; those on the rise again, like Tiger; controversial ones like Kaepernick; and now, a lost star, who showed us an 81 point game and 30 points in one quarter (twice) could be real things. The world will miss Kobe.

But when Nike employees picture someone, they still think of a scrappy, 5’9”, 139 lbs mustachioed runner named Steve Prefontaine, otherwise known in running circles as Pre. Prefontaine was the prized pupil of the company’s co-founder, Bill Bowerman, from his coaching days at the University of Oregon. His spirit is the cornerstone of the company.

He competed in every race as a life or death experience, and was fond of saying, “Somebody may beat me, but they are going to have to bleed to do it.” His philosophy and style were to run without limits, to test t

7 Ways to Turn The Grind Into The Goal

Renowned coaches are often asked what the difference is between the best athletes and everyone else. In other words, “What do really successful people do that most people don’t?” Of course, there are the typical responses of genetics, luck, and talent.

But there’s an added element most don’t think of…It is the will to be relentless and resilient in the Grind. It’s the ability to handle the boredom of training every day and doing the same lifts, drills and film review over and over again that separates the professionals from the amateurs.

Think about it this way – it’s not that the best athletes have some insane, boundless passion or willpower others don’t; it can even be the exact opposite. They can feel the same boredom and lack of motivation everyone else experiences and aren’t immune to the sometimes tedious heft of the daily grind.

What sets them apart is their commitment to the process. They fall in love with the daily practice, with the repetition, and

We Honor and Remember All This Patriot Day

September 11th is now known as “Patriot Day” in the United States, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance for the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Across the country, numerous events will solemnly honor the devastating loss of thousands of lives and the destruction designed to rip the very fabric of this great nation. We join in remembering those lost, celebrating those who bravely responded where terror struck, lifting up those who still suffer today as a result of the attacks, and honoring those who serve around the globe, fighting to protect freedom.

Eighteen years ago, 19 militants tied to the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda killed more than 3,000 people (including more than 400 police officers and firefighters) and wounded more than 10,000 others during three coordinated attacks on 9/11, masterminded by Osama bin Laden. It was the deadliest attack on the US in history and the most devastating foreign act of war on American soil since the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Written by Andy Gesner – Owner / president of HIP Video Promo (specializing in music video promotion)

For almost two decades, I’ve seen far too many visuals never see the light of day due to poor planning or a lack of promotion. Navigating the video marketing landscape has become increasingly difficult. The nuanced requirements for a successful music video marketing campaign are a lot to digest: digital delivery, closed captioning, ascertaining who to pitch, choosing a compelling thumbnail. It can all be confounding and overwhelming.

Although YouTube dominates, new viewers and fans connect with music videos on many diverse platforms that you may not have included in your current music video promotional package. Perhaps you didn’t even know that they existed! If you’re going to go for maximum exposure, you might as well go big! If
