What Are You Building Today?

What are you working on today that is helping you build something meaningful for tomorrow?

Or, does your day consist of going through motions that are essentially exercises in futility? If so, why is that? Is it simply a result of not having a plan? Are you doing what you truly love? Do you feel that you don't have the resources available to you?

We all have our core responsibilities - the daily grind. But this doesn't mean you can't build on something bigger with regards to your personal and professional development? You need to bake in value with everything you're doing, doing so inspires those around you while also raising the level of service you're providing.

Awareness, education and skills building is the new cool. The ability to find and consume helpful resources has never been easier.

Whether you want to learn how to improve your tennis game, understand the mechanics of the long term supply curve and economic profit from Khan Academy or if you want to beef up your automotive digital marketing skills, there are plenty of trusted sources that can help you improve to stand alone in this crowded space.

Don't be average. Be awesome. 

Tanya Thompson
Thank you for this! Inspirational. I'm going to work on my "me" and my social media skills.
Eric Miltsch
That's great Tanya! It's that type of attitude towards building your own skills that keep you on track for bigger and better things all the time.
Anne Fleming
Eric --- thank you, as always. There is just a tad more action and intentionality between ordinary and extraordinary. Great inspiration to start my day and to get clear about what i am building and creating in this day.
Bryan Armstrong
I love it. The joy should be in the journey. The day you feel you've "arrived" and no longer need to learn is the day you begin your retirement.
Joe Webb
I completely agree, Eric. While a person's daily duties may very well fill up the majority of the day (even ALL of their day), to keep personally motivated, everyone should have a "project" they're working on. Whether it be a new/updated website, a blog/blog article, a widget, a concept, a business, or the world's tallest ice-cream cone, everyone should have a passion-fueled project they can dedicate some of their (rare) spare time to in an effort to stay motivated.
