If you have kids or if you were ever a kid (and I'm guessing you can answer at least one of these affirmatively??), you have asked or been asked this question before:

What did you learn today?

And while this is a very valid question, as you'll notice in the title of this blog post, it's not the question I am talking about in the video.

Instead of a REVIEW question, I am talking about a PREVIEW question.

We are all busy. Ask five people how they’ve been and I can almost guarantee that you will hear more than once, “I’ve been busy.” In fact, the idea of “busyness” has almost become a badge of honor.

We need to shift our focus from ACTIVITY to ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
