Know Your Limits

Growing up, I remember the popular sayings of the time. We had No fear! We had Sweet! Or DUDE!

Every generation has a set of words that defines their generation. Those were but a few of the words that could define the 1990’s.

A new phrase has popped up recently. The phrase is a dangerous one. It puts you in a dangerous position if you believe in it.

No Limits

I’ve heard this phrase so many times. Every time I hear it, I cringe.

I know the meaning behind the saying. It sounds good.

The dangerous phrase is “No limits.”

In the personal development world, we hear this a lot. We see people like Nick Vujicic who was born without limbs.

His story is inspiring. He has learned how to live outside of the limits others would have placed on him.

5 Leadership Lessons I Learned From An Exchange Server Failure

You ever have one of those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days? The kind that destroys your confidence and rattles you to the core?

I did recently. It started with a phone call on a Monday night.

It all happened because my career is in the computer repair field. I fix computers and keep them up and running.

This one Monday night I get a phone call from my boss and he tells me we experienced a power failure but the servers were still up. No big deal. I log into the remote desktop and everything seemed okay.

Tuesday morning I learned something bad had happened. We’re no longer receiving emails. In our business, this is a crisis. So I entered into crisis mode.

I snooped around our servers and didn’t see anything out of place. Next was a call to our technology solutions provider. They’re always there for us in a pinch.
