My Career Advice

Very few people work-life balance their way into something special.

Special happens with extra effort and attention … more patience and resilience. Special happens by giving ourselves to the work and the people around us (Smoving).

We can love our family and friends, have a lot of fun, and at the same time, give a little more than we take.

In fact, the latter can help us with the first two in so many ways.

I've lived 53 years, talked with thousands of people, and studied hundreds of success and failure stories.

My advice...

Be very comfortable with less balance at the appropriate times of your career and you’ll likely find yourself in a better spot when you need the balance to go the other way for you.

Appropriate times of your career? It's different for different people and different circumstances.

Try not to let the desire for an absolute get in the way of your something special.  Make the choice to Cross The Line. It's a better bet.


Invest in yourself. Quick books and booklets (30 minutes or less to read) to help you make more good things happen. Shop books.
