Eventually, we’ll open up. Eventually, we will have real LIVE students in a real LIVE classroom. The Post-Corona classroom may be different, but many things will not change. Below, we’ll examine both. The three biggest challenges facing every class (at least from the student perspective) are: money, relevance and time. Income is down, budgets are tight and I (the student) am swamped. So in order for a student to want… Read More »The Post Corona Classroom
Well, here we are, Daily RICHual#100. This thing began on Martin Luther King day. Jan 20. It was designed to be “Something to get you going, thinking, wondering, or doing each day.” A Daily RICHual. Amazingly, I haven’t missed a weekday the whole time. Sometimes it was easy, other times not so much. Every time, though, it was from the heart. As was mentioned way back, I never really cared… Read More »Daily RICHual #100: Will There be a 101?
When there was just too much violence, politics, negativity, and too much of what some weird producer thought was reality, I stopped watching television…. And that was decades ago. This week, to broaden my horizons a little I took in three things on Netflix that I highly recommend. The first was The Quartet, a story about a retirement home for opera singers and musicians. The second was The Healer about… Read More »Daily RICHual #99: The Quartet, The Healer, and Garth Brooks
I was listening to the Morning Shakeout Podcast with Mario Fraioli and he used a phrase that I really liked: He used the words, “pandemic of possibility.” It’s given that while this thing we’ve been going through has been horrific in so many ways, it has also been a tremendous opportunity for reflection; of self and how we navigate our relationships with others, as well as an opportunity for growth
There has been an unfortunate phenomenon that has returned since our Stay at Home orders have been loosened, that is people acting like jerks on the road and ESPECIALLY in stores. I guess when you’ve been confined to your home for a while and have had limited opportunities for social interaction, jerks have fewer chances for jerkiness. Well, all that has changed.
Having a tough time in Corona world? Someone once said, when the goin’ gets tough the tough get goin’. A fabulous sentiment, by the way, but how does that actually work in the world of sales? Well, it works best when you and your business are grounded in the basics. We all have it in us to reach back and rely on our basics to achieve when troubles arrive. Maybe… Read More »Daily RICHual #96: When the Going Gets Tough, Back to Basics
One of the things I’ve had to do in the last 10 weeks is embrace the online course. Whether it’s been Facebook LIVE, Adobe Connect, or ZOOM, it has been a change to have to deliver content in this different fashion. It has been, using a nice buzzword, quite a PIVOT in my business. So as I am pivoting during this time, it causes me to wonder how that pivot… Read More »Daily RICHual #95: Pivoting much?
I just heard an amazing analogy on a Gary Vaynerchuk podcast. Alex Rodriguez was discussing how his businesses were dealing with the Corona Virus situation and he likened it to a rain delay in a baseball game. He said his manager, Joe Torre, used to say that some guys went back into the clubhouse, had a burger or two, took a nap. Others hit the batting cage, got on the… Read More »Daily RICHual #94: Rain Delay
Two quotes collided in my brain this morning. First Gary Vaynerchuk said “Laziness comes when you’re chasing money instead of a game where you love the process.” Simon Sinek said, “When we work hard for something we don’t believe in, it’s called stress. When we work hard for something we do believe in it’s called passion.”
I was reading an article yesterday and it mentioned neuroplasticity. It was one of those words I hadn’t heard in a while, not surprisingly as there are few instances in casual conversation where someone might say, “So how’s your neuroplasticity?” The idea, in the simplest of terms is that our brains grow. It can occur with the altering of neural synapses and pathways as well as other changes at the… Read More »Daily RICHual #92: Neuroplasticity
