Get Off the Couch

February 13, 2013

I had a great speaking engagement at B&H and I am thrilled to see that they have chosen to post it on their facebook page. If you werent able to attend, get a drink and some popcorn and you can catch it on youtube http://bhpho.to/Y7uKMI

One of the things I focused on during the presentation is that you cant accomplish what you want if you are at home on the couch. I read a great article in INC Magazine this month that drives home the same point. Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, talks about creating your own luck and to do so, you need to meet as many people as you can and really get to know them. “Meet lots of different people without trying to extract value from them. You dont need to connect the dots right away. But if you think about each person as a new dot on your canvas, over time, you’ll see the full picture.” Thanks for the great words Tony. And I bet you werent meeting those people when you were at home on the couch!
