Did you know that U.S. Workers spend 13 hours per week reading, writing or responding to email?

I can’t imagine spending that much time on email anymore – I doubt I spend more than 45 minutes a day now.  

But then again…. I’ve gone from receiving thousands of emails per day down to reading and replying to a few dozen per day.

How? I’ll show you.

It’s 1984.  Bruce Springsteen is about to be one of the biggest stars in the world – and he’s enraged.

After wrapping up his final recording session at The Hit Factory in New York city he meets with Jon Landau, his manager, to pick the final 14 songs for his upcoming album Born In The USA.

Over two years in the making, they have at least 70 tracks to pick from, however, Landau tells Bruce there isn’t a single hit among them and the two of them get into an argument.  Bruce is frustrated, not just by the argument, but also by the challenges of trying to finish this album.  He channels his frustration into writing one more song for the album.

History will prove Landau wrong as there were already six Top 10 hits in that pile which made it onto Born In The USA, however the song Bruce wrote in his irked state ultimately became his biggest hit – Dancing in The Dark.

“In soloing – as in other activities – it is far easier to start something than it is to finish it.”
– Amelia Earhart

What would you do if you were not worried about the outcome – if you didn’t care whether you failed, succeeded, or what other people thought?  When I was young, I had no concept of what I was capable of – and I assumed I was capable of anything.

With that irrational, unfounded belief system – I dreamed solely based on what I desired. I never considered anything to be out of reach for me.

Unfortunately, such belief in my abilities turned out to be a recipe for failure in the short term …. and a life lesson that has stuck with me in the long term.

I’ll give you an example.
