Play a Bigger Game

Posted by:

What would “playing a bigger game” look like in your business? In many cases, it looks pretty much the same as playing a regular game — only with a different mindset. Let me give you an example.

Stop Trying to Fix the Mirror

Posted by:

I don’t know what world you live in. I mean that literally. I don’t know what business you’re in, what your customers think of you, how people treat you–I don’t know any of those things. I don’t know what world you live in. But one thing that I do know, with certainty, is this:

Your world is a mirror that reflects who you are.

Do You Own Your Failures?

Posted by:

I’ve noticed two interesting things about average achievers; perhaps you’ve noticed them too. What I’ve noticed is this:

Their success are something that they achieved.
Their failures are something that happened to them.

You can always pick these people out of a crowd. They’re the ones saying:

“It’s the election.”
“It’s the economy.”
“It’s the market.”
“It’s the workforce.”
“It’s my unreliable suppliers.”

Are these things all factors? Sure they are. But given these exact same factors, there are some who succeed wildly and ...

Who You SHOULD Be Hanging Out With

Posted by:

When I was in high school, I used to hang out with a guy named Vince DiCola. You probably haven’t heard of Vince, but he was—and still is—the best rock keyboardist I ever knew. I mean, this guy could play anything! And because I was hanging around with Vince, I decided to learn to play keyboards also. So I did—and I got good enough that, over the years, I’ve played professionally with a few bands. Am I as good as ...

Change is NOT Hard, and I Can Prove It

Posted by:

“Change is hard.”
“People hate change.”
“Change stresses me out.”

Bull.

As a professional keynote speaker, I’m on the road a lot. I speak to associations, organizations, and businesses across the country, and everywhere I go I hear people whining about change.

“Things are changing too fast.”
“I don’t adapt to change well.”
“Change is HAAAAAARRRRRDDDDD!”

None of it’s true, and I can prove it:

  • If I were ...

How Do You Lead When the Storm Clouds Hit?

Posted by:

award-winning performanceI had a speaking engagement in Indianapolis this past Saturday, which meant that I flew in to the Indianapolis airport on Friday. At least, that was the game plan. Those of you who watched the news over the weekend know that much of Indiana was devastated by massive thunderstorms and tornadoes. The actual weather conditions ended up being much worse than ...

Take Off Your Blinders and Branch Out

Posted by:

Branch out.

That’s my mandate/order/request/challenge to you today. Branch out.

Let’s face it, most of us live our lives on autopilot. We get up at the same time every day, we eat the same things for breakfast, drive the same route to work, listen to the same radio stations, read the same books, talk to the same people. And the sad thing is that we seem fine with that.

How Lucky Can You Get?

Posted by:

award winning performanceAs a professional speaker, I spend a lot of time in airports. In fact, I just returned from about two weeks on the road, and I noticed something interesting about people when they’re in airports. What I noticed was this:

A lot of people in an airport begin their sentences with the phrase, “With my luck…”

“With my luck…

  • …the flight will be delayed.”
  • …I’ll end up in a middle seat.”
  • …the guy in ...

Why Your New Years Resolutions Fail

Posted by:

SvN1Zat9ezoGqpA9kMlPHD7V4ljaqjuIUQTZBx6EfaE
We’re well into January, and I’m guessing that by now you’ve already begun abandoning your well thought out and well intentioned New Years resolutions. And they were well intentioned, weren’t they? That’s because it’s so much easier to be optimistic when you’re looking at the new year through the rosy vapors of last night’s champagne. But then stark reality hits (along with ...

A TV Producer’s 3 Questions for a Successful Life

Posted by:

People often ask me, “Bill, what’s the secret to a successful life?”

Okay, that’s a lie. People almost never ask me that. But, given that I’m a multiple Emmy Award winning TV producer, they do occasionally ask me what the secret is to being a successful producer. And you know what? It turns out that the factors that made me a successful television producer are also the factors that can make you successful in life. Because, when you think about it, ...
