Why This Blog?

Have you ever met someone who was highly intelligent but who just never got around to doing anything significant with that knowledge? I have one great friend who I have known for 20 years, and this guy has AMAZING capacity for knowledge. He has earned half a dozen degrees and can talk with confidence about many subjects. But he has never really done anything with his depth of knowledge. He hasn't created anything substantial that adds true value to his family or to the organizations he might serve.

This blog is for people who want to do more and reach their goals in their lives.

It doesn't matter if have a bunch of college degrees like my friend. You can accomplish and reach your dreams. All you have to do is learn what to do to reach your goals and do it. I've studied the strategies and attitudes of highly successful people for 20 years, and this blog is one of the ways I am sharing what I have learned. 

I am creating this blog, sharing my book GET IT DONE, and sharing my newsletter to share what I have learned over the years about how to create positive change for myself, my family, and the organizations I serve. I've learned these skills over several decades of study, through MANY mistakes, and by watching others who have achieved great things and touched many other lives.

I am a scholar in higher education, specifically in human performance improvement and instructional design. I will also show how the tools and strategies in these field can be applied to the important work of GETTING IMPORTANT THINGS DONE. Thanks for reading!
