Halftime

It’s official, the first half of 2008 in in the books. Here are some of the things going on in my neck of the woods at halftime that you may be interested to know.

First, “How to Stay When you Want to Quit: Re-scripting your life from whiner to winner” will soon be available via Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and other fine booksellers. This is the second book in the New to Leadership / Leadership Renewal series. If you’re interested in it or want to be notified when it’s available, send me an email: Karl@Karlbimshas.com

Meanwhile, “Pushing Back the Ocean: Tide Turning Leadership Lessons” is available worldwide on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Target.com and many other sites. Just go to Google or follow this link: Amazon.com

Please feel free to rate it at any site you visit.

Many people have bought the book as a graduation gift. It’s a quick read, and like a gemstone, small and valuable as a great pick me up for your team. For fun check out the three minute YouTube Video

Second, I’ve been reinventing some of the existing blogs to act as a better companion for the Reflection on Leadership podcast available on iTunes.

It’s all in the infancy stage and as you know “it takes a village”, and its development and growth would certainly be enhanced by your participation, suggestions and support, so please join the conversation. You can also add an audio comment by calling 206.333.096.

Third, BimMedia has set up shop in Second Life, the five year old metaverse or virtual world. If you’re a resident of Second Life you can visit Bimmy's, the Lounge for Writers, the conference room and other virtual enhancements at:BimMedia SLurl

Fourth, if you or someone you know is looking for assistance in setting six month goals get in touch with me. Not only do I have a genuine interest in what you're working on, I may be able to help you commit to achieving them.

Your feedback is important to me, and if you have the chance, or inclination, your recommendation on my LinkedIn profile would be much appreciated. LinkedIn

Finally, if you haven't already, checkout a couple of the free tools available on lulu.com. In particular take a look at the 4 10s Challenge. The 4 10s Challenge

As we enter the second half of the year it can help you get back on
track. (Do you even remember your resolutions from January?)

Keep Smiling.
