rodney goldston

Most freelancers undercharge for their services/products.  Believe me I know from personal experience.  Years ago I had a group of Subaru dealers as clients and sat in a marketing meeting and discovered I was the lowest paid vendor on their list.  Not their fault, they didn’t nickel and dime me, they paid me exactly what […]

You know, I’ve often wondered with so many cameras in so many peoples hands these days why there are no UFO sightings anymore.  And, why can’t we seem to get quality footage of Big Foot, or a Yeti.  I’m a X Files type of guy and just like Fox Mulder I want to believe.  Seems that […]

There are things you do when your boss, neighbors, or our friends are looking.  You behave in a manner (even when you are not aware of it) that you want to be perceived or that has come to be expected.

The Wizard of Oz resonates with you because its every humans story.  It’s easy to see that at some point you’ve bought into feeling stupid, somewhere along the line you’ve lacked courage, and too often you’ve lacked passion.

Everyone who completes a marathon experiences the wall. The wall occurs somewhere around mile 22. It can be best understood as the point which a runners mind and body both simultaneously and equally want to quit.  100% of all marathoners experience the wall, but why do some quit while others finish the race? Its because successful marathoners […]

Did you know that for a long time scientist considered bee flight aerodynamically impossible. Until recent years they simply could not explain it.  In 1934 observing bees, August Magnan said the haphazard flapping of their wings simply shouldn’t keep the hefty bugs aloft.  But we all know bees fly. And the simple explanation is because they were […]

Explorers and Dummies

rodney goldston marketing speaker

When Christopher Columbus landed in America he was lost.  He thought he was in India, which is why he called the Native Americans…Indians.  The thing is that the nature of the explorer is to always be lost.  Lost is what we are just before discovering something new. (Tweet It Now!) Contrast that thought with the true nature […]

Slow To…

There’s wisdom in being slow to speak, and slow to judge, but not slow to see. When we’re slow to see we miss the things that are often right in front of us. When we’re slow to see God’s grace in others we label people them, resort to name calling, consider them irrelevant, and fail to act with compassion. […]

Go to school, do well, obey your teachers, and get a good education so that you can get a good job.  That was the promise of the industrial age.  Promises were also made about fairness, upward mobility, and a good life during our golden years.

Mama always says stupid is as stupid does … Forrest Gump If that’s true then stupidity is not the word you typically expect to be associated with Albert Einstein. But if you define stupid as the way you feel when you’re working on a difficult problem, as being wrong until you’re right, or the way […]

Accomplishing, Righteousness, and Starting

Rodney Goldston

The Difference Between Doing and Trying I saw a quote a few days ago that read “All of your accomplishments begin with a decision to try”.  I could not agree less. In fact the reason that most people don’t accomplish what they set out to is because they stop at the decision to try.  This is […]

Attitude vs Planning
