Change is everywhere, change is the only constant and it certainly is not going away. What do we do, how do we manage change? You and your fellow workers learn how to live with it, cope and make it your ally.
As the author Moe Glenner states in his new book “Plus Change-Genesis of Innovation” “Since life will frequently take us to the intersection of creativity, change and innovation, how do we successfully navigate the junction? Now, that is the question of the millennial?
In Moe’s book “Plus Change” he navigates us through the elements of change and unlocks the secrets to turning that change into growth, potential and profits. Moe has what he refers to as the “Nifty-Nine Principles to the creative process. These principles are wonderful ways to move change into creativity, and they are 1) Release the endorphins 2) Separate idea generation from idea evaluation 3) Always test assumptions 4) Avoid patterned thinking 5) Create new perspectives 6) Minimize negative thinking 7) Take (prudent) risks 8) Get lost! 9) Turn Out the lights.
If you want to get more context regarding these principles click on this Youtube interview that Moe did about the book. It provides the viewer with an overview of the book and its contents as well as more insight into the principles.

There is not a person working in business or starting a business that is not looking to find ways and techniques to become more productive. Most of us have heard David Allen and his process called Getting Things Done, and believe me this system if implemented and followed works wonderfully.
I recently was introduced to Ben Elijah the author of “The Productivity Habits“. Ben has been studying how we as human beings interact with information. In other words how we manage information as it comes across our transit.
In his new book “The Productivity Habits” you will learn ways to capture, process and use the right tools to organize and archive the information so is can be retrieved when you want it, where you want it and how you want it. As Ben writes ” Productivity is not about how much stuff you’re able to produce, how smart you’re able to work or your ability to juggle lots of spinning plates. Nor is it your ability to succeed at a job that you hate. Rather, it’s a matter of mastery and perspective. Mastery over yourself and your resources, and the perspective to decide what’s truly important to what deserves your attention.”
If you are feeling overwhelmed with your work and processing project after project, then you will want to read Ben’s new book “The Productivity Habits“. It is a simple read, as a matter of fact you can probably read it in one setting. The book is part of Lid Publishing series called Concise Advice for business people that are time bound.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Bill Jensen the author of a new book entitled ” Future Strong, How to Work Unleashed, Lead Boldly, and Live Life Your Way.”
According to Bill the future of work is undergoing radical transformation and it starts with you. Bill states that before personal commitments and habits come the choices we will make. Those choices include 1) Inner Truth-Will You hear the heartbeat of your past choices? 2) Soul on Fire-Who will you choose to become? 3) Humble Self-How will you choose to be vulnerable? 4) Sacrifice-What are the best hardships for my best future? 5) Reliance-Who will you choose to have your back.
The premise for “Future Strong” is that most businesses are locked into 20th century approaches that are holding back the next fundamental shift in human capacity. These outmoded systems and structures are on a collision course with the wave of millennials who will constitute half of all workers by 2020. Future Strong is the road map for leaders and individuals to create strong futures for themselves and their teams.
