Side note: click here if you missed John's first, second , third , fourth , fifth and sixth entries. ------- There are a whole bunch of innovators out there, thats for sure. What I tried to do was give a good cross-section of the trailblazers from all walks of business and success: a winning NFL football coach, a Commander in the U.

Side note: click here if you missed John's first, second , third , fourth and fifth entries. ------- Probably the most important factor for the success effect has nothing to do with business and everything to do with business. I think it all starts in the crib.

A little on baseball and a lot on performance

By 800-CEO-READ, published June 29, 2006, at 5:41 PM in News & Opinion

Side note: click here if you missed John's first, second , third and fourth entries. ------- Ive been fascinated, too, by the topic of performance, particularly in sports and probably because I live in Cincinnati where baseball is still accessible and affordable. At each game I go to I experiment with praise and criticism, that is, I always heckle one guy throughout the game but only when that guy steps into the on-deck circle or when hes not looking in the field.

Side note: click here if you missed John's first, second and third entries. ---------- It takes only one or two cocktail parties for a reporter to realize that he or she has an incredibly interesting job: You interviewed the CEO of Procter & Gamble? You talked with P.

Side note: If you missed John's first two entries of the day, check them out here and here. --------- I think any growing organization or career-achiever will have an inherent advantage, but they did not necessarily start off with itthough they may have developed it along the way as one success leads to another. Clearly, aggressive opportunists will find an edge on the competition.

Do it right the first time

If you didn't see John's first post of the day, check it out. --------- One of the pertinent points that Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis made in an interview that looked at leadership but soon spread to other topics was this: its too hard to be successful in the NFLor in any businessif youre always putting good money after bad. To him, thats what do-overs, screw ups, are about and plenty of sayings come to mind, like my mistake, for instance.

Introduction to success

By 800-CEO-READ, published June 29, 2006, at 2:35 PM in News & Opinion

Shout out and thanks to Jack and Todd for this opportunity. As a business reporter for about a decade at a major American newspaper, Ive heard and told a lot of stories. After a while, it becomes clear that certain strategies toward life, work and the challenges of the journey to and through a career would be more likely to lead to success than other approaches.

100-Mile Walk in BW

By 800-CEO-READ, published June 21, 2006, at 2:58 PM in News & Opinion

BusinessWeek profiled Sander and Jonathan Flaum, authors of The 100-Mile Walk. I interviewed these two in January and it is one of my favorites. These two have such different perspective on the world of business, but come to a common place on what leadership is.

Prepared Mind World Tour #8 -- Reflecting (Final Post)

By 800-CEO-READ, published May 3, 2006, at 4:00 PM in News & Opinion

So much to think about, so little time. Of all the Prepared Mind skills people tell us they want to do but don't have time for, of all the Prepared Mind skills Prepared Mind leaders tell us they make time for, Reflecting rises to the top of the list. I think the "no time" reason is overrated and is perhaps a proxy for something else.
