It’s not very often that we discourage people from listening to The Today Counts Show, but…  if you just show up at work to get a paycheck while you’re waiting to win the lottery…  this is probably not the podcast for you, but then again, it might be exactly what you need to hear.  Jim Piper is in “tough love” mode today as he prompts you to evaluate your work life.  Do you work like a professional athlete who’s trained and prepared to execute a plan for the game this week, or do you show up for work Monday morning undertrained and unprepared like an amateur?  Even if everyone around you works like an amateur, you can work like a professional and influence those around you by example.  The choice is yours.

You might also want to check out Monday Moment Lead like… for a closely related topic and further discussion.

Together, we can invest in great leaders. You can make a difference! 💙
