No Two Snowflakes Are The Same

Most things in this world are like snowflakes — not identical. Sometimes the difference is so slight it’s almost not noticeable.

With this in mind, people need to learn to think outside of the box. Both when they approach work and their personal life. Thinking outside of the box makes all the difference.

Out Of The Box In Business

In business, no two companies are the same. They might offer similar products, but the execution of those products will always be different, even if it’s just slightly.

Think outside of the box is what will bring these differences to the forefront and enable the leaders of the companies to capitalize on them.

Out Of The Box In Everyday Life

In everyday life, thinking outside of the box keeps life interesting. Going about life the same way every day creates boredom and complacency. Try waking up early, trying something different for you meals, take a different route to the office.

Thinking outside of the box enables people to bring about change quicker and more effectively.

What do you think? Do you try and think outside of the box?

Writing Down Your Process

When you have a reoccurring project or task, you might not think you have to write it down. And you might remember all the steps. But I’m here to tell you that writing it down helps you streamline it and make it better.

I do a bi-weekly podcast called Digital Marketing Dive. The production turnaround isn’t that long after the show is recorded. But when it comes to promotion, that’s where writing down the process has helped me.

I used to fly by the seat of my pants when it came to promoting the podcast. Though the practice of writing down the process, I’ve see that I’ve often missed certain steps that would be good to do in order to get the most promotion possible.

Do you write down your processes?

Are New Years Resolutions Worthless?

Are New Years Resolutions Worthless-li

Are New Years resolutions worthless? How many do we actually keep? We all need to work out, get more sleep, spend more time with our loved ones, save more money, etc. But how much of this do we actually do.

Instead of focusing on overarching, year-long goals, we should focus on more immediate and relatively attainable goals.

For example, I need to make sure I get on my bike trainer at least 3 times a week. I haven’t been. I thought I’d make this a New Years Resolution, but it’s too over reaching and worthless. Instead I’m going to set a goal to get on the bike at least once a week and work my way up. Before I know it it’ll be spring and riding-outside-season.

Another example, remembering to blog regularly. I can say as a New Years resolution that I’m going to blog twice a week. But it would be better if every week I looked at my schedule and decided what we realistic for that week.

What do you think of New Years Resolutions? Are they worthwhile or completely worthless?

Happy New Year!

Update: Britney Kennedy of disagrees with my assertion that New Years Resolutions are worthless. Her view is that resolutions are goals and that setting goals is a good thing to do. Yearly, monthly, weekly, daily… whenever.
