A Year Off For the Diff — 2017 Hiatus

“One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power.  Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”

–     Tony Robbins

So, here’s the deal.

In the almost 12 years I’ve been doing  some version of The Daily Difference, it’s been a wonderful augmentation to my career, my growth and my network.  It still is.

That said, with a “day job” that presents a set of challenges that long-time subscribers have heard me address over the years, I feel like I’m headed in to “syndication” of older episodes, if you will — and that’s not why you subscribe.

There’s one other thing:  Four years ago, I decided to write a book.  And, I’ve discovered that I can either write a pretty good blog and a decent book, or I can focus on writing a great book.

Now, there’s no need to unsubscribe!  From time-to-time, I might throw a missive out there, if only to keep in touch.  From time-to-time, a topic may captivate me and I’ll toss a post out there to see what y’all think.

But, for 2017, The Daily Difference is going to take a nap.  My day job and the book will be the benefactors, hopefully.  In fact, I’ll be redirecting some of the focus to an internal blog here at SHAZAM.  (It’s a great company, and we’re looking to add great sales and relationship management professionals — call me if you know someone we should be talking to!)

Thanks for years of loyalty, feedback and engagement.  Hope to see you back here from time-to-time, and perhaps again on January 1, 2018.

Two parting shots, a couple of my favorite lead-ins.

“Most things in life are neither good nor bad, right nor wrong.  Most things in life just are.”

Here’s to meaningful change and an acceptance of what we can’t change…

Make it a great year…
