I am currently listening to a book on Audible from James Clear; it's called Atomic Habits. As he provides practice advice to help anyone achieve their goals in creating new habits, or eliminating bad habits, there was one area that I found particularly interesting - IDENTITY-BASED HABITS. Here's a quoted [...]

HIDDEN TIP #2; We Didn’t Mean to Hold These Hostage

MY 10 PAGES Random reflections from what we're currently reading. (from February & March 2024 exhibitor newsletters) THE GOAL IS IRRELEVANT Right now I am technically not reading, but listening to a book with Audible called, Atomic Habits by James Clear. I am only a few chapters deep, but one [...]

HIDDEN TIP #1; We Didn’t Mean to Hold These Hostage

Since January, we have divided our standard newsletter into three publications: (1) DPMs, (2) vendors/exhibitors, (3) meeting planners & organizations.

Oh no!!! I printed those materials for everyone to see, but I don't want [...]

Reruns Are a Good Thing

You Heard It Before... But Now It Means Something Else If you are a creature of habit (like we all are) you probably go to many of the same meetings each year. No agenda is ever copied & pasted from year to year, but when you continue to hit [...]

Make that Pre-Meeting Promise

Are you one of those people who is able to get up early in the morning before a work day and go to the gym??? Wow. I applaud you! I am 100% NOT that person - unless I promise someone I'll meet them at the gym. That commitment to another [...]
