I am always amazed at the reaction of "who's Jim Rome" (its JIM ROHN...lol)? Or uh, huh...yeah, ok, as I know my comment that, "He's free on YouTube" is being dismissed unconsciously by the person I'm talking to. Thats usually when I ask, "to get a pen and write these names down".
Jim Rohn, Brian Tracy, Les Brown...That's a good start for the college graduate, entrepreneur, or business truth seeker. I met Jim Rohn in 1989 and his philosophies and story telling made a distinctive impact on how I see the business world and the results of my efforts. For a mentor to describe the outcome and predict your success based on the behaviors we exhibit (self discipline, learning, willingness, etc.), was refreshing and challenging. To know what the possibilities are through the experience of others, is a fundamental step to the enjoyment of learning and life.
I have included a few photos that are a result of listening, adventure, and belief. Several prints are displayed in my home and remind me daily to "listen to the voice" and "you can do anything...if you take the first step".
What are your goals this year?
The opportunity to take a week in MIlan was met with little resistance as my wife informed me she had a conference to attend in December.
I have had the opportunity to visit Rome and surrounding cities, however did not know much about Milan and another stop known as Lake Como. After checking the weather (40-45˚) with sunshine forecasted, it was a pleasant surprise to find some incredible photo opportunities for fun and education.
Milan is well deserved for its reputation as the fashion capitol of he world as I walked the streets the first morning I arrived. The degree of seriousness Italians take in dress and fashion was on full display. I was also pleasantly surprised to navigate with my cell phone to several areas within walking distance of our hotel (Westin Palace).
My adventure is documented in the Travel section of this site and includes the Duomo Cathedral, Starbucks Reserve (another story), Milan, Lamborghini, and a day trip to Lake Como. I can't describe the food ( amazing) so I will let the photos do the tasting...Enjoy!
