    Say "Yes" To Yourself

    Say "Yes" To Yourself

    Do you ever wish you had a less complicated life? 
    Even if your job and life are overcomplicated out of necessity, like launching a rocket or performing brain surgery, you can still simplify everything.
    How do you do it?
    The fact is, the actions you are taking in your life and your job are probably not causing the overwhelm. It's the people and the results that are causing you to feel that way.
    The easier way to under-complicate is to begin saying "No" to the arbitrary and unattainable demands of others and focus exclusively on the results you want. 
    Here are a couple of ideas:
    1) Practice the law of "Good Enough." Perfectionism is over-rated. It will waste years of productive time that you could use to enjoy life. Set your own standards and rise to them.
    2) Get good at saying "No." Make that two-letter word your default answer for everything. And remember, sometimes, saying nothing at all gets the same result.
    3) Keep in mind that the only thing you must do in life is taking a BREATH. Everything else is optional and self-inflicted. 
    Leonardo da Vinci said," Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." 
    Why not show everybody how sophisticated you are?

    4 Steps to Change Anything

    4 Steps to Change Anything

    Creating a difference in your life is a non-stop process that requires simple actions to help you get what you want. And it is, after all, about getting what you want and keeping what you love.
    You’ll always go through these steps:
    1) Decide. Everything begins with your decision to head off in a new direction. While sometimes you may feel like you’ve made a decision, if you’re not moving, you haven’t.
    2) Define. Aimless wandering is fun when that’s what you’ve decided to do. Otherwise, it’s frustrating, exhausting, and takes place more than you think. When you define your path, you get to walk your path.
    3) Deploy. As dull as the advice may be, putting your plan into action is the only way for you to get what you want. If you don’t deploy, you don’t get it.
    4) Defend. After working so hard to get what you want, you can guarantee that something or somebody will try to take away your results. That’s not good or bad. That’s life. When you find what you love, be sure to defend it so you never lose it.
    Simple. I like simple Simple works!

    Mindfulness Starter Thoughts

    Mindfulness Starter Thoughts

    Everything you do is guided by what you think is logical in your mind. Just like everything I do is directed by my Scott LOGIC.
    Is it common sense? Is it experience-based? Is it how you choose to live? Yes. But mostly, it is the filter in your mind at work.
    Here are a few of my filters:
    Life is long enough. But not for everybody.
    Life goes quickly. But not if you're bored.
    Life passes slowly when you are fishing.
    Some people are too serious. Others are not serious enough. Both disagree with the other.
    You must stand in another person's shoes to understand how they see you.
    The reward for hard work is a chance to work more. The reward for laziness is a chance to be lazy more.
    Turning off your phone means it won't ring.
    Most things in life should be in moderation. Excess is good now and then.  
    It takes a fraction of the time to read a good book as it does to write one. That makes reading a book a good investment of your time.
    People who read more good books earn more money. People who don't read don't understand why others earn more.
    Saying "I don't care" means you do - at least about something.
    Everything you experience is filtered through what you hold as the truth. Choose what you hold carefully.

    4 Questions Before You Begin

    4 Questions Before You Begin

    Everybody has dreams. Daydreams, dreams while you sleep, and dreams of what you wish for the future.
    I’ve always believed that dreams are goals you have nurtured to become real in your life. 
    But how do you know if the voice speaking to your heart will lead you in the right direction?
    Brant Pinvidic’s book, The 3-Minute Rule, has four questions that will help:
    1) What is it? Do you understand exactly what you want? 
    2) How does it work? How will you go about reaching your goal? What will likely be the outcome?
    3) Can you do it? Is your plan reasonable? Do you have the time, skills, money? 
    4) Are you sure? If you are willing to put in the effort, are you confident you can achieve your goal?
    Use these when something is holding you back. I promise. The clarity you are seeking is around the corner.

    Today is Another Chance to Succeed

    Today is Another Chance to Succeed

    Is it me, or does living life these days make you feel like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day? 
    When it comes to working toward goals, that can be a tremendous asset. It's also something that will break you free when things don't feel like they are going your way.
    Everybody has ups and downs. Up days are lots of fun. Down days make you want to crawl under a rock. But like the movie, with the right mindset, you always get another chance to try again.
    How would you feel if every day was a chance to tweak, adjust, flex, or reinvent your approach to living?
    What if everything got more comfortable as you built your knowledge of what works best for you?
    How empowered would you feel if you knew that every day was a do-over day?
    As long as the sun rises and the sun sets, it doesn't matter if you succeed or fail the previous day. Today is always a new day for making your dreams come true.
    That'll make you get out of bed.

    How To Break Bad Habits

    How To Break Bad Habits

    How To Break Bad Habits
    Have you struggled to break a habit?
    Bad habits are not good. They will mess up your day. They are also not permanent. You weren’t born with bad habits, and you are not required under penalty of law to keep bad habits. 
    Since there’s no real reason to keep bad habits, let’s replace them the easy way.
    Nobody likes to give up what’s comfortable - even if it’s not serving you. Instead, start a new behavior and replace the bad before it mucks up your life again. 
    Breaking bad habits is doing new behaviors instead of old behaviors. No muss. No-fuss. Be consistent and persistent, and you will wipe that old habit away forever.
