The focus today is reducing the number of categories to aid in focusing my writing content for greater effectiveness. Why? You’ll have to read my post from yesterday.
Maybe it’s just me! But in each of these videos I see an underlying message that speak to the heart of leaders. As I watched them on TV, I said to myself “self, you’ve got to post them” 🙂
