“As a business owner, I know about the go-go syndrome, the endless to-do lists and goals that keep getting pushed to the back burner. But I also know how to plan, prioritize and accomplish tasks, and for this reason, I created A Daily Task.”
I founded A Daily Task because I love being inspired. And nothing inspires me more than helping people be more organized than they ever thought possible – and without losing their sanity or sacrificing fulfilling relationships with friends and family.
I have always been what some would call “detail-oriented” (and others would call “anal!”). At the age of 17, I founded a literary journal that was sold in five local bookstores. Negotiating relationships with the contributors, printers, distributors and editor taught me that organization is key.
I also discovered that, as a high-energy person, I am fueled by complexity and fresh challenges. Toward that end, I started another business, a marketing company. My promotional marketing company combined my love for helping others and my passion for innovation in the marketplace. Finding solutions always gets me juiced!
But sometimes even an uber-energetic guy like me needs to take a break. This became abundantly clear when my grandmother became ill and later passed in October 2011. It made me realize that all of my professional successes, ultimately, are about being able to bring whole self to my loved ones.
Someone they can be proud of, yes – but also someone who is living his dream, and therefore that much more available to support them in their life goals. And the flip side of that is that I can’t bring my whole self to my business without nurturing the relationships that sustain me. Being fully present in my personal and professional life means fully attending to each.
