Michael Burwell took a moment recently to share a few thoughts.
What Does Your Day Look Like Typically
On most days I am out of bed at 5 AM. I make my bed immediately, even when on the road. Doing this makes me feel as if I accomplished something. Exercise is usually the first order of the day and I like to ride a stationary bike. While riding, I have the chance to plot my day.
What Is A Habit Of Yours That Promote Productivity
I have always been interested in learning how to do more with less. To this end, I think technology can be used to make talented people even more productive. I always tell friends and acquaintances the apps that I use to increase productivity and they share the same information with me.
Is There Any Advice You Would Give A Younger Version Of Yourself
Yes. Be careful of seeking to appease others while collaborating. While it is nice if everyone can be happy when working as a group, people pleasing can be a surefire way to failure.
What Is A Business Strategy You Have Benefitted From
Remember that everyone will always be able to explain to you why your ideas will not work. It is a necessity to be both positive and relentless. I always take the time to celebrate with team members and carefully assess the reasons behind our wins and losses.
What Is A Habit You Do Over And Over That Has Brought You Success
I learned long ago the importance of becoming a good listener. Everyone has interesting information to offer. The question is always if time will be invested in discovering it.
What Is The Best $100 You Have Recently Spent
Well, I paid $100 for a briefcase chord organizer. I do a lot of traveling and it has been extremely helpful to have all my cords organized.
