How can we partner?

May 6, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

How can we partner?

If you know me you know I am a big fan of partnerships.

I think great partnerships bring out elements of both partners that might not be fully utilized without the partner.

And, most importantly, good partnerships can create better products for your customers which will fuel growth and winning and competition!

Look at what I’ve … Read the rest

What would a sponsorship mean for your business?

May 5, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Have you thought about a sponsorship of an event and what it could do for your business?

Think about it.

Sponsoring can be the gateway to developing relationships.

And the positive association can run deep.  And right now there is a unique opportunity.

With the planning of a blitz around the McBride For Business Do Business Effectively() Triangle and Time … Read the rest

Have you spent enough time dreaming?

May 4, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Stop and Dream.

It sounds so simple.

But we don’t think many people stop and do it.

In fact, until we did enough workshops (me and Shannon J. Gregg, my partner for all things Time Magicment()), I was often shocked how few CEOs of private companies had 10 and 15 year visions – for themselves or their companies.… Read the rest

What would happen if you had the time to plant just a few more seeds?

May 3, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Time Management.

To so many it seems so simple. Or so “soft”.  Many people fail to invest in time management.

For many years I worked on my time management.  It was always critical. And as I was able to accomplish more in less and less time great things started happening for me.

And I believe everyone can get there. It … Read the rest

Do you have challenges?

May 2, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

It’s not always easy.

I am having a lot of fun today.  But the volume of work is high. And the pace of change is quick.

What I’ve found interesting in my growth is that the ability to deal with the pace of change increases.  And now I change so quickly.

Maybe some of you are still in corporate jobs, … Read the rest

What are you hiding?

May 1, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Do you hide your problems?

I think we all do at times.  I mean who wants to air their dirty laundry for all to see?

But what’s interesting in video view numbers.

As you know I post a lot of videos on LinkedIn.

And as part of that I get to see view numbers.  Now it’s not which person … Read the rest

What would you give up your weekend for?

April 30, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Yesterday was Sunday.

And I normally work some on the weekends (in fairness I have times I am not doing office work during the week) as part of my overall work-life integration.

But yesterday was different.  I stopped my weekend early and I got to work.

I was working on an upcoming program on women in business – challenging the … Read the rest

Muzzle That Child!

April 29, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Do you stand up for what you believe in?

It seems a lot of times we don’t.

I’m not sitting here in a glass house throwing stones.  I’ve done it too.

It seems more and more we avoid conflict.

Our media is tailored to us. If we don’t like what someone else is saying we don’t even have to listen … Read the rest

Metrics and Disappointment

April 28, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Metrics.  Shannon J. Gregg and I are huge fans.

When we teach time management, or rather Time Magicment(), we talk a lot about installing metrics.

And good metrics monitor the things you do that lead to the results you want.

Note:  it’s the things you do that metrics should measure, not the results.

And sometimes you do things that … Read the rest

Who do you love?

April 27, 2018 // R. Shawn McBride

Love.

What is love?

Que music.

Just like great music can bring back emotions and feeling we know there is feeling in business too.

Things that we love.  Things that make us feel good.  Things that inspire us.

In fact business without inspiration would be, well…., boring.

Many of the greatest things in business were a response to inspiration.

Do … Read the rest
