Jim Collins

Had a chance to see Jim Collins present at IT Nation and this alone was worth the entire week. If you do not recognize Jim Collins name you most likely recognize his books like; Good to Great, Great by Choice, Built to last. And much, much more.

I thought about posting some of his amazing thoughts on business. However I really feel that you would be missing out if you do not read his books. Many of the finding in the books goes against standard thoughts in business. The unique thing about the books is that the findings are confirmed with facts over and over again.

If you are in business you would be doing a favor by investing in all Jim Collins books.

A great trip

We made a trip down to Disney world for 7 days. There were 6 of us. Jenifer and the boys along with Jenifer's parents. We started everything at the parks on October 30th for a half day. One thing that in my mind cannot be argued is the quality and attention to detail that Disney puts into the entire experience. We stayed at Radiator Springs (Art of Animation) where the entire Car's world was recreated.

You can see in the above photo that we spent Halloween at the Magic Kingdom. What a great night. We trick-or-treated Disney. This will be a Halloween that both boys will remember for life.

We then moved on to Christmas on November 1st. Most of the park was transformed overnight. We had character meals, went to all parks (Many twice)

Everyone went home and I stayed another 6 days for a conference. I am finally caught up from being gone that long.
