TMD: Wednesday’s Workaround

Two Minute Drill: Wednesday’s Workaround

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy NOT Tuesday Two Minute Drill but Wednesday’s workaround. Yesterday I missed my TMD and I woke up to a text this morning from one of my best friends, Stewart, who said, “Hey man don’t worry about it. You know you missed your TMD, but you know it’s not a big deal. It’s not a failure, you just prioritize other things in your life that day, and sometimes that happens.”

I missed my TMD

I usually hate workarounds. I really do! I want problems to be solved but sometimes we do need to find ways to get stuff done that’s not perfect or ideal. It’s progress, not perfection at times.

Why do we need workarounds, to begin with? For me, my schedule is crazy busy. I’m overcommitted. What am I going to do to solve that problem so that I don’t miss my TMDs?

One thing is organizing my schedule in a more efficient way. Another way to make sure that I’m not overcommitted by saying NO. If I happen to say no to you in the future, it’s only because I don’t want to disappoint you, and miss the mark like I did yesterday with my TMD.

When it comes to workarounds, sometimes they’re necessary. Sometimes we have to get them done.

Find out why you need the workaround, and then work to ensure that you don’t need future workarounds in your business and in your life.

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.

Have a great week, you guys.

TMD: Wednesday’s Workaround

TMD: Forgiveness is the Only Way to Happiness

Two Minute Drill: Forgiveness is the Only Way to Happiness

What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is forgiveness. I am coming to you from the Eiffel Tower, but of course, it’s not the real Paris because I am in Vegas right now. I am here at the Parker seminar and it’s been an absolutely great event.


Last night I was hanging out with a couple of friends having a good time, and having some drinks, and one of my friends made a comment that was inappropriate. It was anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic, and I pretty much lost it and walked away.

As I was walking away, going back to my room, I said to myself “I don’t think I can ever be friends with this person ever again.” I was pretty upset. I woke up this morning and this feeling of anger and frustration came over me then I thought about how much energy it was taking and sapping for me, just being upset at this person and thinking about what it was going to feel like to like not have this friendship.

I’m going to see this person a lot for a long time because we’re both very involved in our profession. I just thought It was too much energy to be angry. I think forgiveness is a better way. I texted her and we just had a conversation, we talked through it, and she apologized multiple times. She said it was a learning moment for her and I appreciated that and I feel so much better.

If there’s someone or something in your life that you’re angry about and there’s an opportunity for forgiveness, do forgiveness because it’s so much easier and it’s so much healthier and it’s so much better for you.

Guys from Las Vegas, from the Eiffel Tower. That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill.

You all have a great week.
