    A Review of Todays Trucking News

    in News

    We will be reviewing the stories affecting trucking today and hoping some drivers will join us for a discussion regarding how enforcement of the sleep apnea rules are affecting them and what they are doing to comply with the physician's recommendation.  Are there more 3 month med cards being issued?  Are the physicians over stepping their authority? Did FMCSA not give enough guidance to physicians?  Have you tried to be proactive and address any issues prior to going for your DOT physical?  What's working, what's not?  Have you searched the web for miracles?  Why is it that many drivers have bad eating habits, lack of time to exercise or just plain can't pass physicals?  Drivers?  Companies?  DOT? Physicians? Truck Stops?  I believe all share the responsibility.  Let's discuss it?

    What's the best way to separate yourself apart from the competition? Be Creative! It's easy to fall into the traps you set for yourself and lose the most important asset your have, creativity! Too often people don't even realize they have this form of tunnel vision. It is very important to focus on the small things in business. It's also important to know where you are in your life and to do what is necessary to be happy and productive, but are you looking so closely at the small things that you lose focus on the big picture? As business owners we must focus on our customers and put their needs before our own. Finding ways to solve their problems and overcoming our own limitations is a gateway to success! Your questions and comments are what will make this show great!
