It seems like I’ve recently been getting more inquiries like the following from client-dealers and their managers:

“I know I can become a more effective and productive leader/manager, but how can I learn how  to do this without adding an increased time investment to my professional life. I’m already committed for 60+ hours per week!”

Well at least they’re not saying 80+ hours per week like I was frequently hearing during the 2003 – 2010 period! And although I think that 60+ hours per week may still be excessive in many cases, it may be OK if it includes drive-time to and from home.

Which brings me right to my recommendation for those of you unfortunate enough to be experiencing a 20+ minute daily one-way commute to work. Since you are already suffering with that time commitment, why not make it productive by listening to podcasts. The available podcast resources and content are virtually unlimited, and it’s relatively easy to find subject matter specific to the retail automobile business.

If you’ve been reading my messages, you know that I’m a big fan of Dave Anderson at LearnToLead.com. In May of this year he began producing The Game Changer Life podcast series, and there are now nearly 50 audio recordings available, with even more to come. According to Dave, “Being a game changer is all about being energized, passionate, consistently focused, and creating a high impact every single day.” In these 17 – 25 minute podcasts he “reveals principles gained throughout his extensive retail automotive career and conducts interviews with special guests from a variety of industries, all to help you: become more focused, stay energized, remain effective, and live The Game Changer Life!”

You can view the entire podcast catalog and access any individual podcast at no charge by clicking on http://thegamechangerlife.libsyn.com/website or by pasting it into your browser. This message is just a further demonstration of the Value First policy of Garry House & Associates!

I wish you a Very Happy, Healthy, and Successful 2018!

 

Warmest Regards,

Garry House
