Happy New Year Give Away

JEMA The Christmas Dog – One last Christmas Picture for your Christmas Season.

Happy New Year!

I genuinely love and take the New Year to reflect, then, plan some goals / projects for the new year. It’s refreshing and sets the tone for the time ahead. I also genuinely love to bless and serve people. If I can help or brighten someone’s day, it fills me up. So, to put those two together, I’ve pulled some books and CD’s (yes, discs. I know. How quaint. 😁) that I want to give away, including:

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – basically the book on CD presented by Covey himself. (Awesome stuff!)
  • A book called Success Profiles – Conversations with High Achievers by an Arizona author.
  • A book called “Return to Your CORE” by a presenter I saw at Vistage. (Really good stuff!)
  • A DVD series on how to become a better communicator from a course I used to teach.
  • A DVD series on managing multiple projects, objectives and deadlines also from a course I used to teach.
  • Some other short books on:
  • Stress Control
    • Defeating Procrastination
    • Organized for Success
    • Productivity Power
    • Coping with Supervisory Nightmares

Add a comment below about which topic you are interested in. I’ll pick out a few via some undetermined system and send you an email or direct message on LinkedIn to get your address and mail it to you.

Thanks for participating. This will be fun. Again, Happy New Year. May 2023 be a blessed and amazing year for you.


What Do _You_ Want To Read

I write about a lot of different stuff here, but, it generally falls into a few central themes.  My hope and goal is that 99% of the time these posts will be of value to someone.  Alas, I know people may be interested in some of my themes, but not others.

With that in mind, this site is categorized by these themes.  (Down the right side or at the bottom.) That way you can click there and read more about a particular theme you are interested in.

Of course, I hope you might come across another theme you were not expecting and find a “gem in the sand” that changes your life.  Who knows! 🙂



Product Thought of the Week – Focusing On UX

Microsoft Edge on iOS – Much More Stunning on the iPhone Itself. 🙂

UI, many times, is the thing that Product People, and the product team, focus on. And of course that is important. If the product doesn’t have the functionality the user needs, then why have a product at all? But there’s also that pesky thing called UX – the User Experience.

Product Thought of the Week – Start Today

My Son Loves Obstacles – Picture by Me.

What are you as a Product Person, Owner and/or Manager, going to do today to bless and serve your people? Your Customer; your Team. Start with people and everything else will just magically happen.

I was only going to post a “one-liner” to LinkedIn today. But, then the Spirit moved me, saying this is too important to “just post a one-liner.” With that, fingers crossed, this will be quick hit post.
