Last week, Josh and I released a brand new podcast entitled “Systemization: The Four Mistakes You do NOT Want to Make.”  Go here to listen. You’ll be able to download it too, and it’s on iTunes… (Adapted from the book, Work the System: The Simple Mechanics of Making More and Working Less.) Could it be […]

A business writer can get all wrapped up in analogy and metaphor and I try to avoid going down that road too far, but the dog-and-tail comparison is too vivid not to exploit.  In this post I build around the premise that the most important leadership tasks are to establish clear direction for the organization and then to convince […]

Late last Thursday evening a friend and I watched The Matrix. Larry and Andy Wachowski’s film masterpiece, it was my fourth viewing . Watching it yet again was as epic as my first viewing back in 1999 and so, Friday morning, I back-burnered today’s scheduled post and wrote this one instead.

Young Russians: Socialists or Capitalists? This is not a political blog. It’s a “systems mindset” blog. In my December 1st post,  Socialism & Capitalism: The Systems Mindset Dissection, my primary message is not about which system is best (although, as an aside, one certainly is more efficient than the other). I use real-life topics like this to illustrate […]

In the three maps above: Note the congruency between economic freedom and personal wealth. Let’s find the connection. I post this on December 1, 2009: Exactly 25 years ago today I went into business for myself. This analysis is a thank you to an economic system that works. This is a two week post because it’s long and covers a lot of […]
