And what else can you post on FB?

I posts my articles and share good ones.

Embrace boundaries: you can’t handle otherwise

Two kinds of busy

When I’m giving a speech, I don’t have the ability to squeeze in a phone call, think about what’s for dinner or plan tomorrow’s meeting. I’m doing one thing, and it’s taking everything I’ve got. So yes, I’m busy, all in.

On the other hand, we all are familiar with the other kind of busy, the busy of feeding one kid while listening to see if the other is still napping, while emptying the groceries, checking email and generally keeping the world on its axis.

I have two suggestions:

a. if you’re used to being one kind of busy, try the other one out for a change. You might find it suits you.


b. if what you’re doing isn’t working, if you’re not excelling at what you set out to do or not getting the results you seek, it might be because you’re confused about what sort of busy is going to get you there…

Embracing boundaries

One of the most popular home computers ever made was the Commodore 64.

The “64” was the amount of memory it had–not 64 gigs, nor 64 megs, but 64k. If it were available today, it would be a little like being a toothpick vendor at a lumberjack convention.

The thing is, the amount of available memory was right there, in the name of the machine.

All the people who developed for the machine knew exactly how much memory it had.

Any time a developer whined or made excuses about how little memory there was, he was telling us something we already knew, making excuses where no excuses were needed or welcomed.

With unlimited time, unlimited money and unlimited resources, of course you might do something differently.

But your project is defined by the limitations and boundaries that are in place when you set out to accomplish something.

You build something remarkable because of the boundaries, not without them.

“You can buy this from anyone, and we’re anyone”

That’s not going to get you very far when you sell stuff, raise money, look for a job…

What if instead, you created a reputation as the person or organization that can honestly say, “you can’t get this from anyone but me?”
