When the book The Little BIG Things was in process, our friends at Enterprise Media caught Tom on camera reading an early draft. As a result, we have a collection of short takes of Tom laying out the beginnings of the 163 Ways to Pursue Excellence that became the finished product. We’re putting these short video spots at YouTube, adding one a week. In this week’s entry, Tom tells us about Roger Ailes’s notion that a person has but seven seconds to make a first impression.

Take a look at this video, “Brand You: First Impressions” (2 minute, 28 seconds), or download a PDF transcript.

You might also want to watch some of the earlier videos in this series. There are some good topics, all presented by Tom in a casual setting. Like inviting him into your living room. Here’s a selection of past titles:
Don’t Fear Failure
Leadership: Listening
Milestones Matter
Servant Leadership
The Problem Isn’t The Problem
Sacred Trust
On Thoughtfulness

Out Read the Other Guy
Work on Your Writing
