wasn’t sure what to do next.


This morning, at precisely 10:41 am, I looked at my list of client deadlines and realized that there was nothing that needed to be worked on at the moment.

My answer is always the same: Keep moving.

Reach out to people you’ve fallen out of touch with. Update the copy on your web site. Read and post some updates on LinkedIn.

When you have a job, you spend a lot of time responding to what comes at you.

When you work for yourself, it’s up to you to make things happen.

The more you do to stay active, the more good things come your way.
