Hurry! Make Better Choices with Unlimited Time – Kirby Ingles


Arnold Bennett, the Author of How to Live Your Life on 24 Hours a Day stated, “We never shall have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is.” How very honest Bennett is about this undervalued truth.

The last couple of weeks I have scurried about like a squirrel getting ready for winter. I have helped my wife prepare for our son, Andrew. He will have left the womb yesterday and will be snuggling in our arms about the time you start to read this. My eyes well up thinking about this special moment and what it represents.

How to Remember Things PART 2: Names – Erik Tyler


In PART 1 of this series on “How to Remember Things,” I introduced some core memory strategies, particularly applied to tricky spelling situations.

In today’s post, I want to add a little more to your overall understanding of how memory works, and then apply it to one of the most useful skills you can have as a leader: how to remember names. This one will be a bit longer than other posts, because it contains a base of truly useful and necessary foundational information; but I promise, it will be worth your while. Not only will you gain real skills in just a few minutes here, remembering names is key to effective communication and rapport, as well as simply being others-focused in life.
