How do you improve?


If you don’t strive to educate yourself, you will soon get schooled. Some people learn it the hard way. But you don’t need to if you start taking the initiative to make yourself better.
If you don’t educate yourself with the skills and knowledge required, you will soon be schooled.

Would you like to be taught a hard lesson?

What is there to do?


There is always something to do today. Don’t idle your time away. Be deliberate in your actions. Even a small deliberate effort across time will bear fruits in the future. If you spent 30mins a day reading, you would have spent at least 182 hours a year reading. What would you have learned in that time? Or got better in whatever you wanted to improve with 182 hours at a mere 30mins a day?

What are you doing now?

Who are you fooling?

What is your reality?


Someone once told me there is no such thing as win-win. Someone HAS to lose. I like to think I am beyond such arguments. People project into the world their own reality and to them it is real. That’s their truth. They see others using the formula of “win-lose” and come up on top. They are convinced that is the way, failing to understand that some people come up on top despite thinking “win-lose” not because of it.

People come up on top using “win-lose”. Plenty come up on top using “win-win”. Both formula works.

One, you plot for the others’ downfall and always watching your back. The alternative allows you to pull others upwards and be free to surge forward.

Why is it so tough?


Because we work with a very diverse group of people. People we need to coerce, cajole and convince to do things better and in line with our plans. And sometimes no matter what we do, they will do it their way.

Please open your door to patience.

What is your style?


Do what you are being told. Learn from it. Memorize them. Then research your experience. Put it to test. Adjust it. That is your truth.

How did the masters do it?

How do you fend off the hoax?


Any guru in any form of martial arts will tell you eventually even the fanciest moves come from the basics. If you master the basics, it can go a long way in protecting you.

So too, your marketing basics. When seduced by the new and the fresh and the cheap and the sexy and the trendy and the fads, go back to the basic questions. They can protect you.

Can the basics protect?

What are your competitors doing?


Fear not what your competitors are doing to you. Fear what you are doing to your own business and brand. Fear what you are not doing to your own brand. That’s a better kind of fear.

What are you doing?
