I wrote, “Want to improve your world, start with reading this..” and I suppose I meant it in October 2012. But, since then I’ve changed quite a bit and so has the world.
Coincidentally, I am in a bit of a reading lull. My morning reading time is absorbed by writing and a larger project that needs to get done. I also have several books and magazines backed up. Fortunately, there is Audible and still a fair amount of driving happening so I am not completely without.
Partially prompted by this October 2012 rant on coverage, sadly, my efforts have helped hundred but millions are still not benefiting. Sadly, I am one of those negatively impacted by someone with not enough coverage and a large national company that allowed this to happen.
I’m done, actually never started, with the nonsense of “Hiring Producers,” Human beings who have earned a license are LICENSED INSURANCE AGENTS. Yes, the quality, like all professions, will vary. BUT, What the F are they actually producing? If you say revenue for the agency, the sound you hear is me vomiting.
Circa October 2010, none of these really need/deserve a full reboot and it looks like I made slight updates in May 2015

First, let us take a moment to thank Grammarly. Like you, I’m busy and miss things. Old posts had lots of silly, mostly lazy, mistakes.
Your updated disclaimer; I value time more than I did in October 2010 and, as my available time seems to diminish and priorities shift, even more than in May of 2015. What does this mean? Well, I am not sure that I held back then and the only stuff I hold back now is proprietary stuff. Even that is shared with certain audiences.
Really should have been a better title in 2012 but the concept is still there, the idea is just expanded on http://theinsurancebill.com/?p=202
An adjustment I made, likely starting in 2013 was to try and get as much as you reasonable can get out of the time you are using. The key, as I learned, was to be reasonable.
I’ll 100% not get crazy over a few dollars or percentage difference in price if I save time. Time is the most critical piece. But, as time really tightens up it is even more critical to choose activities where I get more out of the transaction.
