PPP 340 | Why You Should 80-20 Everything, with Perry Marshall
You’ve certainly heard of the Pareto Principle, right? It’s the 80-20 rule that says, for example, 80% of the value of our projects comes from 20% of the scope.
Why do I bring this up? Because most of us know about 80-20 but we don’t leverage it to our advantage. And today’s guest is going to challenge us on that. Perry Marshall is joining us to talk about his book Detox Declutter Dominate.

PPP 338 | The Difference Between Kindness and Niceness—and the ROI of Kindness
Is it possible to be too nice? Is niceness the same as kindness? I’m excited to introduce you to Brian Biro who wrote a book entitled The ROI of Kindness.
In today’s discussion, Brian will talk about the difference between being nice and being kind. He’ll explain what a Kindness Value Proposition is and why you might want to consider developing one. We have an extended conversation about one of the kindest things you can do: be present with other people.

Free PDUs + priceless insight = #winwin
I’ve been listening to this podcast since 2016 to earn PDUs for my PMP certification. My initial motivation was just for the free PDUs. What I quickly learned is that the podcasts are so well done and Andy’s interviews are very entertaining. On top of that - each episode includes such great content, insight, and knowledge that I can apply to my work/personal life and adventures in parenting (of 8 year old quadruplets).
This podcast is so great - that you can binge listen to 32 podcasts in one month (like I just did) and still want more!
Appreciate all that Andy and his team do to keep these podcasts going. Give the podcast a try…. you will become a #superfan like me.
So much FUN!
I really enjoyed Andy’s recent episode with Dr. Bob Nelson
Such an impactful listen
I always appreciate Andy’s approach. It’s a mix of calmness and enthusiasm that leads to excellent levels of learning.
