I'm sure, like me, you find that some weeks you grind it out, and some weeks are a blessing. In my case, this week was a blessing – I got to check off three items on my professional 'bucket list':
First, I got to spend an evening sharing the principles of Predictable Success with the top 20 executives from a Fortune 10 company. (Client confidentiality prevents me from saying who, but it's a company I've long wanted to work with.)
Second, I was asked to share a stage later this year with one of my personal heroes, Jim Collins (of 'Good to Great' and 'Built to Last' fame) – details are below the fold.
And third, I finally got to upgrade my beloved but increasingly cranky old Mac – the one on which I wrote both 'Predictable Success' and 'The Synergist' – with an all-new Quad-core Intel, 1Tb Fusion-drive, 3.9Ghz, 27" iMac (that's it sucking the innards out of my old Mac above). Proof, if it was needed, that yes, I'm a nerd.
Lots of great stuff this week, so let's get right to it….
