Leadership That Matters
"And as a professional speaker and trainer, I carry the awesome responsibility of sharing critical ideas that are both relevant and effective in equipping leaders with the knowledge to do better and become better."
Only The Real Matters
"Here are stories of loyalty. Stories of friendship. Stories of persistence. Stories of attempts and endeavors, failure and success. Real stories of real people--their businesses, their treasures, their wealth, their heroes. People who, after putting a lid on their careers in order to define who they are, have discovered a deeper meaning to their lifework--work that has been transformed from an obsessive bondage to a source of tremendous fulfillment and joy."
Three Little Words
"Allow me to use the fascinating world and words of the English language in bringing you effective principles for work, business and living. For purposes of easy recall each principle will be presented with the titles of three words."
Being The Best
"This book is an easy read but a lot of hard work. Being the Best You Can Ever Be could be read through in one sitting, but to succeed in life and be the best you can ever be will require a predetermined will and a lot of back-breaking work."
"This is a book that deals with "DUHism's of Life." I shall assign a meaning to the word duh by using the following acronym:
Developing Unhealthy Habits
"The early bird gets the worm..." but has it ever occurred to you that the early worm gets eaten. In line with this thinking, being the first may not necessarily be good, because the first mouse gets trapped, but the second one gets the cheese. What I'm trying to say is that life is a matter of perspective. It's not what happens to you; it's how you look at it and how you take it."
All that Matters
"There are many things that matter--the big things as well as the small things. But what matters most should matter now, and the big things we dream about would one day happen, but only when we sweat the small things and improve on it now."
52 Week Journal
"52 weeks of lesson reminders, stories, and personal reflections that we hope will help you write down the start of your milestones for your leadership process."

Challenges and adversities in life make life and living interesting. Dealing with them and overcoming them is what brings meaning to life. One thing I have observed is that many of the very successful people I know are not particularly gifted or super talented. But they are persistent and determined. They work very hard and purposely set out […]Read More...

HISTORY: Way back in AD 10 Julius Frontinus said, “Inventions have reached their limit, and I see no hope for further development.” Thomas Edison, the great inventor, was at times doubting Thomas said, “Fooling around with alternating current is a waste of time.” In 1934 Albert Einstein declared, “There is not the slightest indication that […]Read More...

Your body can withstand almost anything especially when you are young. Keep yourself healthy. It is the only body you have and you better take good care of it. But what you need to watch out for and what you need to continue working on is your mind. Manage your thought life carefully. Feed the mind […]Read More...

A lesson I learned turned my life around: Stop thinking like a victim. Do not constantly portray the self as an unfortunate victim of people’s manipulation and malice. Zig Ziglar calls this “Stinking thinking.” Own the situation. Do not crave this kind of attention. Take charge and responsibility to make good things happen. This way […]Read More...

When people often do things that are not ethical, we may think they made a mistake but actually, it’s just the way they are. It’s not a decision mistake, it is a revelation of character. Be wise and be careful. Be gracious but do not be too trusting. My experience here is when you give […]Read More...

Heart to heart. That’s the essence of effective influence. If you want to speak to people in a way that reaches their hearts, you have to do more than open your mouth and speak your mind; you have to open your heart and show interest, care, and concern. This is good leadership. #PassionPurposeProductivityRead More...

Timing is important. Charles Kingsley says: “There’s no use doing a kindness if you do it a day too late.” Today is the day when we show kindness. The Pandemic, and then the typhoon. There is just plenty of kind things we can do because the needs are many. But do not put it off […]Read More...

The more we learn the more we realize there is more we need to learn. Those who are not interested in learning may have the erroneous idea that they already know enough. Not good because the stagnation begins. We have to be perpetual students. George Couros says: “Learning is not consumption. Learning is creation.” I […]Read More...
