I am intrigued by the philosophical question we all face in this short life, “How do we reach our full potential in work and life?”

This has shaped the topics I research and write about including:

  • Career – strategically managing a career over a long period of time to deliver impact from your unique expertise and realize the rewards most important to you.
  • Health – mental, physical, and spiritual – is a two-way street. You experience a boost of mojo when you are loving the work you do and are winning.
  • Technology to save time, amplify impact and building products that create value.

To cultivate perspectives on this question, I synthesize strategies from books I’ve read and my personal experiences over the last 30+ years.
