Create a Better Life: Tips 3 and 4

February 6, 2013…

Here are tips 3 and 4 (of 7) that can help you find balance, accountability and life success:

3. Take a baby step working towards a big goal every day. It keeps life invigorating…and keeps you playing "offense" in life (moving forward) rather than always playing "defense" and fending off challenges. Designate a specific time…"Goal Time"…and make it happen.

Create a Better Life: Tips 1 and 2

February 5, 2013…

Here are tips 1 and 2 (of 7 that will follow!) that can help you stay focused and on track:

1. Get in the habit of exercising every day…even if it is a short 15-minute walk. When we have good physical energy…our emotional, mental and spiritual energy also improves.

"What Did You Accomplish Today?"

It happens. The moment that hits us like a brick wall and causes us to lose all positive momentum. We stop chasing the goal, we lose our positive edge…and then we quit.

Moments happen. And so does losing our mojo.

The "Sum" of the "Somes"...Part 2

February 3, 2013…

As a writer and a speaker, I often find myself in isolated working situations. Yet my success is not tied to just my performance, but also to the performance of those around me: marketing people, editors, event planners. I need those people…just as much as they need me.

Activity is NOT Necessarily Productivity

January 30, 2013…

Using a "To Do" list definitely can helps us to stay focused and get things done. But sometimes, just checking things of a "To DO" list doesn't lead to being more successful.

Focus on what moves you ahead in your goals and life…and not just what keeps you busy.

Opportunity...and A Lot of Elbow Grease Makes Money

January 29, 2013…

Ever no anybody who seems to be on a perpetual quest to find that once-in-a-lifetime get-rich-quick scheme?

To hear them talk, "Everything in life will be perfect, if I just find that one golden opportunity!"
