Hardcover Version: Mind Management, Not Time Management

December 01, 2021

One year after the debut of Mind Management, Not Time Management, I have released a hardcover version!

If you’re like one recent Amazon reviewer of the book, who says, “I can’t express how much I love this book,” this is for you. If you like to have a “souvenir” edition of books you love, I’ve put together a book that will last for years.

The book features a dust jacket, which protects a nice surprise of a vibrant hardcover underneath. Take a look:

Where to get it?

This would make a great gift for yourself or anyone else who loves to create.

The Finisher’s Paradox – Love Your Work, Episode 267

October 28, 2021

Finisher's Paradox

When Michelangelo was painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling, he designed and built his own scaffolding. But, it only covered half of the ceiling. So he painted the first half of the ceiling, then removed the scaffolding. When he finally got to view his work from the floor, seventy feet below, it was as if he were seeing it with new eyes.

After two years work, he didn’t like what he saw.
