What Do You Do With Your Knowledge?

We are all different in many ways. We hear this all of the time. One of the more subtle differences between individuals is what they do with their knowledge. I find that people do one of four things with their knowledge: They store it and call on it in conversation simply to help someone understand something better. They use it in conversation to make themselves feel good by demonstrating that...

Finding Impact

I always have had a hard time with to do lists. Easy to fill. But hard to see what really needs to get done. What is busy work versus what would help me move forward in my life?
