Bad Meetings? Try Running on Lombardi Time

Written by Paul Detlefs on December 9, 2019


A few years ago, I traveled to Green Bay, WI to see the Bears play the Packers on a Monday night.

I can only imagine the time she must have spent getting and keeping that closet in such order. Making sure every shoe was in its correct place, ready to serve its specific purpose. She got rid of shoes that no longer fit or weren’t adding value, and was always able to pair outfits with perfectly coordinated shoes.

She took the time to structure her closet and its contents properly, periodically checking to make sure it was organized the best it could be. It’s the same with your business.
