Being Effective vs. Looking Impressive: How to get the most out of the hours you have

I posted an infographic to the network last week about the importance of being effective over looking impressive. One of our members asked a great question, “How do I do that?” The truth is, both are necessary but we want the effectiveness of our product to drive how impressive people think we are. Today we’ll dive deep into this concept and give you some tools you can use to become the most effective person in your industry.

The Big Lie: Why Secondary Education is WRONG for Most People

As you know I am a HUGE advocate of alternative education. It’s cheaper, teaches specific skill sets and generally provides a better quality of education because those producing it either work in the field they teach in or run professional programs that keep up closely with industry changes. But we have a literal and figurative institution around higher education that needs to be addressed. Today we’ll look at an article written by George Kuh, chancellor professor emeritus of higher education at Indiana University and break down why I think he’s wrong what’s best for students of the future. **Not a member of Our Community?

What the Inflation Reduction Act Means for You

If you think the Inflation Reduction Act has some inflation reducing acts in it then you haven’t been paying attention to how politicians name bills. The Freedom Act didn’t create more freedom. The Affordable Care Act didn’t make healthcare more affordable, and the Inflation Reduction Act isn’t going to reduce inflation. What is is going to do is levy some new taxes, may of which will be passed on to you. **Not a member of Our Community?

Is America Still the Best Place to Live?

Blasphemy! I hear you say. But if we take off our rose color glasses for a minute, America isn’t exactly the land of the free anymore. [Freedomhouse.org](http://Freedomhouse.org) ranks America as the 52nd freest country on earth. The Heritage economic freedom index puts America at 25, well behind Estonia (7) and Lithuania (17).

Tips to Be More Productive, Disciplined and Consistent

Today I want to expand on a concept we touched on last week in “Lessons from a lifetime of Failures” and that’s this idea of discipline and productivity. Here’s a link to that episode if you missed it. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/lessons-from-a-lifetime-of-failures/id840193021?i=1000569042411 Discipline is largely a myth. In his book “The power of Habit” Charles Duhigg explains that the reason people can’t loose weight or stop smoking isn’t because they lack discipline it’s because they haven’t changed their habits. So how do we form better habits? That’s what we’re going to discuss today. I hope you enjoy. **Not a member of Our Community?

Silicon Valley is in Trouble. Thoughts on FB, NFT’s and the Metaverse.

I have it on very good authority that even Facebook employees know it’s days are numbered. Now it’s a sprint to find revenue from somewhere else. That ‘somewhere’ is apparently the “metaverse” although no one quite knows what that is. Today I want to take crack at unpacking the current struggles in facing the current tech giants and where the internet goes from here. **Not a member of Our Community?
