Choose Remarkable

January 29, 2008

Remarkable Leadership Book Cover

Today is a day like any other day – we have the chance to make decisions that will help us  – or impede us – on our paths towards our remarkable potential. 

Today offers you a special opportunity to choose remarkable.

If you want to be a more effective leader who has more opportunities to change the world for the better, go here.  From this link you can learn about the special offer we’ve put together to encourage people to choose remarkable.

If you already have a copy of the book (thank you) you will want to follow this link, because I am offering you some thank you bonuses – including one month in the Remarkable Leadership Learning System.

 If you don’t have the book, when you buy your copy today, you can take advantage of all of those bonuses as well.

You see, I know that a book can only take people so far, so we put together this package to help you go further, faster on your personal path towards remarkable.  I hope to “see” you join me on that path.

Here is the first step.

Read and Listen

I want to link you to two of the smartest guys online.  One, Dwayne Melancon (of Genuine Curiosity), reviewed Remarkable Leadership last week and gave it a glowing report.  Any writer loves positive feedback, but when it comes from someone like Dwane it means even more.  I hope you’ll read it!

Secondly I was interviewed recently by Wayne Turmel for his great Cranky Middle Manager podcast.  We spent 30 minutes talking about Remarkable Leadership and discussing whatever connections came to Wayne’s bright mind.  You can check it out here.

Come back tomorrow for a big announcement about the book and how you can benefit – whether you have a copy or not!

But What About But?

No Excuses

I’ve read and heard several places that the word but, is an acrostic for

Behold the



And I’ve told many people about the fact that but is like an eraser – it erases whatever comes before it – and what follows is the real truth.

Today I read a WONDERFUL blog post about BUT. Titled Is Your But Too Big?, it comes from the Millionaire Mommy Next Door blog (thanks to Lifehacker for the tip.).

 If you want to get on, and stay on your road towards your goals, resolutions and realize your version of Remarkable, read this post (perhaps often).

Make a Remarkable Decision

January 2, 2008

This post comes with a tip of the hat to Seth Godin, who wrote the post that led to this one.

 Seth concludes the post by asking “Why not be great?”

Of course, I would beg to modify question, but not necessarily the sentiment.

Why not be remarkable?

This is the perfect question to ask yourself every day, in every meeting, as you look at any leadership task, as a parent, (need I go on?).

I plan to ask myself this question every day, and I urge you to do the same.
