In this episode, Andy shares the insights he learned from a bird that comes and taps on his window every day. He talks about the value of being committed but at the same time making sure that our efforts are not wasted on something that is not aligned with our purpose and goals. 


Tune in now and know how to avoid the frustration brought by wasted time, skills, and effort.  


“We [Would] Have To Ask The Question, ‘is What We're Doing Aligned With Our Goals?’”

“Are We Getting The Right Advice From The Right People? Because We Can Get Advice From Anybody.”

“We Have To Be Very Intentional About What We're Being Rewarded With, And Making Sure That The Rewards That We're Getting, The Compensation We're Getting, Whatever Those Are, Serves Us. It's Not Hindering Us And Holding Us Back.”
