In sports, a lot can happen in one quarter. Records can be set. Outstanding performances can help to define careers. Coaches can make decisions that spark momentum and lead to victory. Teams can begin a championship run.

And growth. Growth can happen.

That is what this page is about. The content in this section is here to help you develop and grow. Each piece can be consumed in 12 minutes or less; the equivalent of one quarter in many sports.​

It offers a “micro-dose” approach to your professional advancement. Short, hard-hitting nuggets, placed here to share ideas, to educate, and to inform. Take small bites and stack wins; the cumulative effect will create a meaningful difference over time. And become part of the bigger whole that is your own personal development.​

One quarter is just one small segment in a game, a season, or a career. But it can be very significant. And memorable. 12 minutes or less can make a difference.​
