The business environment is evolving at an accelerated rate, primarily due to such factors as globalization and advances in information and technology. What used to take 15 years to change, now takes 5 or less. This pace requires a shift in how you think about innovation, because really you have three choices (two of which are undesirable):  innovate, exit or die.

Have you ever reached a point in your life where you felt like you were in dire need of a change? Or maybe you felt like there were areas of your life in which you could improve?

Meet Jon Rosenberg of Levrose Commercial Real Estate. Jon first became introduced to CATSHOT in October of 2015 at the EO Alchemy Regional Conference, where I was doing a keynote speech.

The make or break of a high performance group setting revolves around the interest of the individuals involved. Do they actually want to be there? Are they interested in the subject being presented?

Infinity implies something that never ends, so how would you ever possibly go beyond that? It’s all about the way you look at things. To me, infinity is an illusion. Never is it truly unreachable, but it always keeps one shooting for the stars! Here is where we all can take a cue from those who were truly great throughout history. They never stopped expanding their frontier of achievement and searching for ways to better fulfill their Noble Calling, even after they have achieved incredible wealth and fame. In fact, many, continue to help humanity centuries past their lifetime through the inventions, discoveries and philanthropy they left behind. So what will you leave behind?

Has there ever been a moment in your life when you were scared of the commitment you were about to make? Chances are it has happened at one time or another, either in your personal, professional, or social life. You are not the only one who has experienced this struggle prozac 10 mg. It’s difficult for many, primarily because once committed there are two possible outcomes: success or failure…both of which can generate anxiety or distress within an individual.

Don’t let fear consume you or prevent you from being the person you are capable of being. Every individual journey is different. Remember that along every journey there will be bumps in the road and hurdles to overcome, it’s just a matter of how dedicated you are to persevering up and over them.
