3 Minute Apologies 2:38

Tom believes nothing is more powerful (and difficult) than apologies. Tom also thinks that there is almost no situation where the other person is 100% responsible. In just about every case, you bear some (even if very small) responsibility. So, apologize for your 2%. If you fail to do this, it can create a downward spiral. But, if you do it, it can create a virtuous spiral.

Brand YOU 3:07

Based on Tom’s theory of branding, this video applies branding to YOU. The labor market worldwide has become astonishingly competitive. To thrive, you need to “stand for something.” You need to find you "inner entrepreneur." Behave in an entrepreneurial fashion because no one will have a "standard" career ahead of them.

Build Your Own Legacy – Every Day 2:04

Ask yourself "What is your legacy today." Every day does have a legacy. Every day can be a masterpiece. Keep a scorecard for yourself. We build our track record whether we’re President of the United States or someone working in a restaurant one day at a time.

Five Guys From Delaware 2:16

Woody Allen once famously said, "80% of success is showing up." Tom explains how the Delaware delegation for the writing of the constitution had a huge impact because they showed up every day - with all their delegates. Listen to why Tom thinks that’s important – just showing up!

Thank You Notes 2:49

A “thank you” is recognition of a job well done. Often the most important person to thank is not the “top” person but the people several levels down who helped you really get the job done.

Great writing makes a huge difference. It reflects well on you. The quality of written communication is incredibly important. The good news is that you can always improve your writing skills. Practice!
