Does this annoy anyone else?

Or how about the classic: "let's grow our network. Like and comment on this post if you're open to connections..." 🤢

In my opinion, this is a sure-fire way to get engagement, but is it even effective?

By using tactics like this you aren't providing any real value.

You aren't targeting your audience and creating brand affinity.

You're simply getting likes and post views.

What's this worth?

I don't know, maybe I'm just grouchy today...

What do you think?

Steady Improvements Make A Big Difference

Steady, small improvements make a big difference.

Instead of trying to conquer the world today, make 1 small improvement every day.

Just as the Grand Canyon wasn't forged in a day or week, we can make small incremental changes in our lives that become majestic masterpieces over time.

I've started writing down one thing I'd like to do better each day in the morning. This has become part of my daily planning process. These small incremental changes will slowly make me into the person I want to become.

You got this!

What Matters Most?

What Matters Most?

🤔 Last night, I had an experience that really made me think about this question.

👨🏼‍💻 I’m always busy working on something. In fact, you could say that I’m a bit of a workaholic. Even when I’m not working, I try to be efficient and productive.

🌙 Last night, my daughter did not want to go to bed. She was making up excuse after excuse, and would say anything to get out of bedtime.

💋 Every time I tried to grab her to take her to bed, she would run to my wife and say that she needed another kiss.

🤗 I kept trying to grab her, but then my wife said something profound. “She’s not going to want to cuddle with me like this forever…”

✅ I was so focused on “completing the task” that I didn’t take the time to BE PRESENT. The thing that matters the most to me is my family, but were my actions reflecting this?

❓ Do your actions reflect your priorities? I’d love to hear your thoughts :)
