Thursday, September 21st, 2006

Team building as a foundation for effective performance “The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” –Theodore Roosevelt Over the years I have been involved in quite a number of […]

Business Housecleaning

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

One of the things I do quite often (At least once a quarter), is to do some “business housecleaning. I take a few hours and go through a ritual of sorts. Cleaning the Address Book I pride myself in having a very impressive rolodex (well a virtual one anyway, using Palm Handhelds and Microsoft Outlook). […]

Can you be “TOO” connected?

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

I am often called the most connected man in Costa Rica, for reason. I have been one of the principle and FIRST promoters of wireless technology in Costa Rica. I am always connected via wifi or GSM/GPRS, and clients are often surprised that even when out of the office, I always answer my email within […]

Business, Business, Business!

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

Lot of Business activity going on right now. I am finishing up some training for a client, and working on future plans, so blogging has been light. My students hard at work, click for larger image.

Palm Addicts becomes the biggest “independent” advertiser!

Tuesday, September 12th, 2006

I wonder how much Palm Addicts is getting paid to Publicize Palm’s new Treo in Europe. I have been a long time fan of PA, but they just lost all credibility with me. They have become just another advertising site for Palm. One story is great, but reprinting Palm’s promotional material and filling half of […]

Things are getting busy…

Thursday, September 7th, 2006

As if things weren’t busy enough, I just took on a new project to do some management consulting for an expat businesswoman. In the interim, other projects are progressing nicely. I am doing some more corporate management training tomorrow and all of next week, so blogging will likely be somewhat light.

If you are considering an Agenda Application for your Palm…

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

This, is a great comparisson of the two leaders: When I bought a PDA, one of the first things I wanted to do was find a replacement for the built-in datebook. I evaluated DB5 and Agendus, and purchased the former. With the release of Agendus 7, I thought it would be interesting to do a […]

One of my Palm articles made Palm Addicts!

Tuesday, September 5th, 2006

I wrote a guest piece for Palm Addicts to celebrate their seventh anniversary: I look to Palm Addicts on a daily basis to keep me up to date on what is happening in the Palm and Mobile Technology world. It was your raving reviews of the Treo 650 that convinced me to buy one not […]

Another anniversary of note…

Monday, September 4th, 2006

Happy Anniversary to the Palm Addicts site. Sammy McLoughlin, the Founder and editor of PA, has been giving away some really nice toys for the last week or so, to celebrate. PA is one of those sites I visit daily to get my fix of Palm and mobile technology news. The site is a great […]
