    How Do You Do It? (A Job Like a Tailored Suit)

    How Do You Do It? (A Job Like a Tailored Suit)

    I regularly get the question, “How Do You Do It?”

    “How are you able to travel so much and not get sick of it?”

    “How can you read 50+ books per year and also write your own?”

    Gosh, I don’t know.

    DON’T PANIC! (For Everyone Who Fears Failure)

    It happened just after I told my friend Lisette never to panic. When something goes wrong during your presentation, your workshop, your travels, or in any other endeavor, DO NOT PANIC! Your panic is most likely to cause the thing that you fear most.

    My Offer to Book Resellers

    There are two great aspects to people complaining about the shipping fees of my book:

    It shows that readers care. They want the book! Even the 15,000 people who already downloaded the free PDF. Within three days, I sold XXX copies of the #Workout book from the Management 3.0 web shop. Imagine how much more people we can reach when we slash distribution costs?

    Already several people asked me if they can resell the book locally, which will cut shipping fees dramatically. The answer is: Yes, please! The less I have to do, the better. My goal is to be a writer, not a distributor.

    The Four Whys

    I’m sure you recognize the problem. You’re nose-deep in some activity that takes ten times longer than expected, and suddenly you think, “Why on earth am I wasting my time with this nonsense?” Yes, I have that too sometimes! I had it yesterday when I was explaining to one of my customers how sales tax works in Europe. It took so long, I needed two coffee breaks.

    What’s Your Management 3.0 Story?

    Some readers told me they have used Moving Motivators during job interviews.

    Some readers told me they used Delegation Boards on management teams.

    Some readers told me they adopted Merit Money to get rid of bonuses.

    I just visited REA Group in Melbourne, Australia, where they use lots of Management 3.0 practices, and have great experiences to share.

    How to Be a 10x Better Speaker with 20 Benefits

    How to Be a 10x Better Speaker with 20 Benefits

    Last week, one conference attendee told me my presentation at Agile Tour Toulouse was perfect.

    It was very kind, but I didn’t believe her.

    In five years, I have spoken at almost 100 conferences and joined a similar number of community and company events. Thanks to the many discussions I had with event organizers, I think I now understand how to be a more valuable speaker.

    Practices, Not Platitudes

    Practices, Not Platitudes

    I recently took part in a conversation about compensation of employees. Some readers offered criticism on the Merit Money practice, described in my new Workout book, claiming that Merit Money is just another way to incentivize people. The feedback I received was, “Money doesn’t motivate people”, followed by, “Don’t incentivize people” and “Just pay people well”.

    Let me explain why I think this advice is useless.

    Ten Thousand Baby Steps

    Last week, I added the last songs to my two big Spotify playlists: Euro Dance Heaven (2,520 songs) and Euro Disco Heaven (1,695 songs). I added the first of those songs to my playlists on December 16, 2010. That’s almost four years ago.

    I’ll Speak for Free If You Write a Review

    For book authors, Amazon reviews are very important. Reviews sell books. The difference between 10 and 100 book reviews can mean the difference between obscurity versus visibility. 250 reviews? That’s celebrity status!
