    James, I like this post.

    Scheduling used to be the hardest thing to commit to, as I had planned my day according to things needing to get done as opposed to the best time for me to complete those certain tasks.

    Example: I would schedule to write a blog post at 10pm, when I had most of my creative inspiration usually hit me in the late afternoon.

    Scheduling is definitely important, but make sure it fits into your natural performance tendencies.

    Thanks for the post James.

Wow, you have 20,000 followers now I need that many too just too look important :). But seriously. I am struggling to see how it is of any benefit and look forward to one day using it effectively.

    A good overview of an effective branding strategy. First define, then project and finally extend.

    Your personal brand also helps you make continual forward momentum in your own life and drive your future success.

    It is not only others that buy into your Personal Brand, you also buy into it. You live your Personal Brand, from the purchases you make to the clothes you wear, to the way you network.
