Celebrating D-Day on My B-Day

D-Day on My B-Day

I’ll always remember that morning when my mom woke me up early on June 6, 1944 and showed me the headlines in the San Diego Union newspaper:  “D-Day…..Allies Land on Normandy Beach.” She smiled and said “what nicer birthday present could a boy ever get?” She was right, of course.

The beginning of the end of the deadliest war in history was a precious present that is forever etched in my memory. I saved that newspaper and glance at it often to remind me to live by “inclusion,” rather than by “exclusion.”

Today is a memorable day for another reason, not because it’s my birthday, but because D-Day has a new significance as the day when Denis finally went Digital and Downloadable in his profession. For much too long www.waitley.com has stubbornly held on to the dinosaur age of hardcover books, CD and DVD albums and printed, packaged programs.

I guess I would prefer a last name of “Swiftly” instead of “Waitley,” since I waited until the e-book and I-pad revolution was well underway before seriously picking up speed myself on the information superhighway.

I’ll always be grateful for the creative persistence of my colleague, webmaster & marketing guru, Andy Broadaway, who lit the torch and led me out of the forest into the digital age.

In the days, weeks and months to come, I hope you’ll visit often and share your own dreams, desires and experiences so we can all win the game of life together.

The new www.waitley.com is just the beginning of an exciting dimension in our stewardship and we look forward to upgrading and improving every day based on the feedback we receive from friends like you.

And always remember, “Winners believe in their dreams, when that’s all they have to hang on to!”

From Motivation to Motive-Action

With the passing of every new year, each of us needs to understand the magnitude of social and economic change in the world. In the past, change in business and social life was incremental and a set of personal strategies for achieving excellence was not required. Today, in the knowledge-based world, where change is the rule, a set of personal strategies is essential for success, even survival. Never again will you be able to go to your place of business on autopilot, comfortable and secure that the organization, state or government will provide for and look after you. You must look in the mirror when you ask who is responsible for your success or failure. You must become a lifelong learner and leader, for to be a follower is to fall hopelessly behind the pace of progress. Continue Reading »

Become a Global Networker

Bill Gates, Microsoft’s founder, and the richest person in the world by several billion dollars, is convinced that the huge access to information will trickle down to the consumer. In another two years, he predicts, most decisions such as hiring a part-time worker for your home, buying a consumer product, choosing a lawyer . will be made on a much more informed basis because of electronic communication.

It changes the nature of competition, because in a networked world, we can ignore geographic limits to our shopping. People, information and services are merging together, all in the name of time-based competitive advantage. Continue Reading »
