Mark Zuckerberg wears the same clothes every day so he can limit the time he spends making “frivolous” decisions so he can concentrate on real work. Both Steve Jobs and President Obama have a similar view on everyday decisions, and that makes sense. When you run a big company (or a country), you want to focus all your time on decisions that matter. Read More Make Decisions Like a Great Leader (Guest Post)

Walmart-PR-Crisis
It seems like every time I walk into Wal-Mart I get pissed off. Well let me backtrack, maybe such deep resentment is reserved for the Wal-Mart near my home. If I made a little more money I would exclusively shop at Publix , because my experiences at this Wal-Mart are frustrating and unbearable. And my sentiment seems to be shared with the majority of Wal-Mart’s current and growing number of former customers. Read More Do Not Follow the Wal-Mart Formula

business process

Business is a process that involves many different variables that all combine to formulate into an operating organization. Variables are the components which help to add substance to the overall picture by connecting the many dots that are necessary for efficient processing. Many people make the mistake of thinking business is a straight-forward act that moves from idea to acceptation without having any important in-between destinations. Not recognizing the importance of strategic planning and the execution of correlating initiatives that create the opportunity for success severely limits the chances of seeing progressive development. You see, the idea is just the beginning stage and not necessarily the most important element within the process. The initiatives that lead to the execution of the proposed idea is what truly matters and is what sets successful businesses apart from dreamers and wishers. Read More The Business Process

Currently the NFL is in a lockout situation with the veteran refs who have years of experience covering NFL games and also have years of knowledge when it comes to rules and game play. The refs in place have no such experience or knowledge and it really shows when you are forced to watch these horribly called games. It is as if every week it gets worse and worse, leaving you puzzled in amazement as to how this debacle can continue to go on. Blatant calls that any fan can make seem to be blind to these replacements and this is even with them having the luxury of replay review. It seems like the refs want to outdo themselves on how much more inefficient and dumbfounded they can become. The whole occurring fiasco is a major distraction for the NFL and just continuous to further piss off fans, players and coaches. Read More Why You Do Not Want a NFL Ref Lockout Situation
