In the past, you may have been encouraged to identify three key learnings when you took a class. Joe Woodard takes it a step further. He has multiple categories in which he identifies his own "Three Things". Here are three categories with Joe's "Three Things".


Three awesome technologies Joe discovered over the past year

1. MindManager provides powerful visualization tools and mind mapping software that takes you and your organization to where you want to be. It allows you to take visual, hierarchical meeting notes, organize light project work with timelines and Gantt charts, and it completely eliminates the need for whiteboards either for physical meetings or virtual meetings Learn more about MindManager here.  

2. Scribe automatically generates step-by-step guides for any task. Let that sink in for a minute. Scribe will actually document every step you perform to navigate any cloud-based application. You do NOT need to narrate what you are doing; instead, you simply perform the steps. Scribe will add each step with screenshots in a step-by-step format. Learn more about Scribe here

3. is not yet ready to be used, but it definitely needs to be mentioned. Facta will automate your monthly close processes without moving off QuickBooks. Facta will eliminate 80% of the work necessary to close each month, decrease audit and data integrity issues by 30% and improve strategic and operational results with structured data. Learn more about Facta (and join the waitlist) here.


Three most influential books Joe read over the past year

1. In The Advantage, author Patrick Lencioni says that the most successful businesses are differentiated by their company values which exist in the unification of their management, operations and culture. The power of company values does not rest in public-facing statements, but rather in core company behaviors including operational behaviors, accidental behaviors and aspirational behaviors. 

2. In The Power of Habit, author Charles Duhigg explains what habits are, why they exist, and how they can be changed through habit loops (cue, routine, reward).

3. In Measuring What Matters, author John Doerr defines a powerful goal-setting system based on objectives and key results that are transparent to the entire organization.


Three most inspirational quotes Joe heard over the past year

1. Andy Stanley - "Direction, not intention, determines destination.” 

2. Meera Reed (character, Game of Thrones) - "Some people will always need help. That doesn’t mean they aren’t worth helping."

3. John Maxwell - "Proceed afraid."
