At #PTC in Honolulu I met with Todd Daubert of Dentons

Dentons provides legal services to the #Telecoms industry.

For Telecom Pros who think technology rules the business, it’s important to remember that there are many significant players in the Telecoms ecosystem.

Technology may dictate the cut and thrust of day-to-day Telecoms competition. But Legal and Regulatory issues turn the battleship.

I attended Pacific Telecommunications Conference (PTC) in Honolulu

I had the idea to take short videos of other Telecoms Pros to get their views on the work they were doing.

I also asked them if they had any advice to give to their younger selves; something they’ve learned which they wish they had learned much earlier.

I was quite surprised how reluctant most people were to go on-camera.

Here were some of the Reasons:
✅They said they didn’t want to
✅They wouldn’t be comfortable on-camera
✅They worried they weren’t authorized to speak on behalf of their employer.
✅Had nothing to say

There is one way sure way to improve each of these weaknesses: Practice.

If you wait to start until you are ready, you’ll never start.

I know I have a lot to learn about interviewing people. But I’m convinced I’ll improve faster by doing more interviews.

That’s how it works.

At PTC19, I met with Roland Ho and Gilles Gooding of Glorytech.

Glorytech have a LiFi device which is somewhat similar to a WiFi router, but it uses the visible light part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

The Glorytech LiFi router uses Power over Ethernet #POE, serves up to 16 users, and sells for about USD200.

I spoke with Roland about the LiFi router and also got some advice for his younger self.

These are the things I can do with your help.

I’ve been reviewing my 2018 accomplishments to help me craft my 2019 #GNO.

Here is a preliminary list for 2019:

➜Write 500 words every day
➜Spend 1 hour/day on building my network
➜Try something new every month
➜Send my newsletter every Sunday night
➜Publish a full blog post every Tuesday
➜Engage on LinkedIn every day
➜Shoot one video each week
➜Help at least one person every day on LinkedIn
➜Create and track my personal KPIs
➜Remove at least 1 task from my todo list every day

I also plan to start each day by writing, by hand, each of these goals as a short sentence. I’ve read that doing that can help maintain focus on achieving them.

This list is mostly personal items, combining efforts from both my businesses, Intelefy (wireless consulting) and Bangkok Beach Telecom (career development and training).

Any suggestions for me on this list?

Are you thinking about your own 2019 objectives?

What things will you put on your list?

Leave me a comment with your 2019 GNOs.
