Soon you’ll get the opportunity to enjoy a very special time of year. Certainly the holidays are a great time to enjoy being with friends and family, but that’s not what I mean. I’m talking about that special time I like to call “Headstart Week.”
In this brief video, I discuss what Headstart Week is, why it’s so important, and what to do during it. I’ll also show you how you can join others in making a public commitment so that you plan for the new year and make it you best ever.
Just this week I came back from Accra, Ghana, where I was asked to speak at the African Business Leaders Forum. It was an amazing experience, not just from a cultural perspective, but from a business and networking one, as well.

Remember the multitasking exercise? In it I told you there were three negative effects that come from multitasking. But that’s not completely accurate. There is a fourth effect and, to many, it’s even more damaging than the first three.
In this video, I give you a simple exercise that you can share with coworkers and friends to understand and avoid this fourth effect.
