    Planner Your Next Perfect Week

    Planner Your Next Perfect Week

    I have a saying -
    “Next year begins THIS year. Next month begins THIS month. Next week begins THIS week.”
    If you want to stay on track, accomplish your goals, and enjoy life more - you MUST take control of your calendar. It’s easier than you think:
    1) Life will come at you FAST! Schedule any significant and can’t-miss life event at least one year in advance. Put it on the calendar and block it out. You can always change your mind.
    2) Hold your space. Decide in advance what you will be doing with your days. When will you work on projects? When will you see clients? When will you have fun? 
    3) Never end one week without locking in your schedule for the next - and stick to it. 
    Focus, my friend. Focus. The future is always brighter when your day-to-day focus fulfills your goals this week.

    Turn Obstacles Into Opportunity
    Have you ever wondered how much easier things would be if you didn’t have to think so much?
    What if the future or your past didn’t matter?
    Imagine if you didn’t worry about the possessions, success, or drama of others?
    What would happen if you believed that YOU were in control?  
    Now you are starting to think like a Stoic Philosopher.
    Stoicism is about paring down and simplifying. They eliminate unproductive traits that define the majority of the population. One of the most common is turning obstacles upside down, creating opportunities, and seeing them as teachable moments.
    For a Stoic, every bad thing becomes a new source of good.  
    Marcus Aurelius said it this way, 
    “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in your way becomes the way.”

    Listening to Yourself First

    Listening to Yourself First

    Listening to Yourself First
    Growing up, I was an energetic, enthusiastic, and excitable child. I never let a day go by without challenging something - usually with my mouth. Thanks to those responsible for turning me into a good person, I learned a valuable lesson when they said-
    “Listen twice as much as you speak. You have two ears and one mouth for a reason.”
    You’ve heard that before, and in today’s fast-paced world, knowing when to put a zipper on your lips is critical. But I’ve also learned to take that advice to a new level to get what I want. I call it going “Dark.”
    When you go “Dark,” you have chosen to listen to others less. Yes, you are still listening, caring, and interacting with those around you. You’ve decided to listen to yourself twice as much instead.
    The world we live in today makes it seem as though it’s impossible to get what you want without others. There are endless hours of interacting, Googling, ZOOMing, Texting, and more. It’s as if we’ve lost permission to think and do for ourselves. We can’t move forward without the social approval of those around us when the exact opposite is true.
    Something extraordinary happens when you give yourself space to listen to yourself more. Your creative mind and talents flourish—your positive energy rebounds. You feel more present and find more meaning in your life. Going “Dark” makes your life brighter, and good stuff happens.
    When you take the time to slip away into your own space, you develop into the person you were meant to be. 
    Removing yourself from the buzz of the world gives you a new kind of energy. And you do it without anybody’s permission or without anybody knowing. 
    When you emerge, everybody will notice that you are different. They will listen when you speak, seek your advice, and be attracted to you in a new way. 
    Who knew that listening twice as much as you speak works even better when you listen to yourself twice as much as you listen to others?

    Hungry Pilots, Hot Donuts, And Your Goals

    Hungry Pilots, Hot Donuts, And Your Goals

    Hungry Pilots, Hot Donuts, And Your Goals
    Have you noticed that airplanes fly crooked? It makes you wonder how the Pilot ever gets where they want to go. Hmm… they must have a great goal! 
    Here’s what happens when you set a goal or fly an airplane.
    In an airplane heading to a destination, winds will do their best to blow you off course. That’s why pilots turn their aircraft into the wind. They call it Wind Correction.
    The same thing happens when you set a Goal. While you may prefer a straight path, you will likely run into winds that will blow you off course.
    Your spouse disagrees with your plans. Your boss demands more hours. Your kids, friends, and responsibilities keep you further away from your dreams.
    I think it’s time to start thinking like a hungry pilot who sets their flight plan to a distant city with a Kristy Kreme donut store that is just about to turn in the ‘Hot Donuts’ sign.
    What’s the lesson?
    Keep an eye on your final destination. Always set goals that factor in winds that will blow you off your course. Make minor corrections until you get where you’re heading.

    Multi-tasking is Stupid

    Multi-tasking is Stupid

    How To Create More Time
    Wouldn’t it be great if you could create more time in your day without giving anything up? 
    The secret is how you prioritize the projects that are already on your plate. That requires a simple understanding:
    1) Working on multiple products at the same time only delays the completion of all the projects.
    2) When you complete a product not only is it off your plate, it begins producing your expecting results. It also frees up time to move on to your next project.
    The next time that you are trying to find more time ask -
    “What can I finish right now that will give me more time tomorrow - and every day after that?”
    You are going to love how you have so much more time in your day.

    Face Your Passion: Building Your Bridge

    Face Your Passion: Building Your Bridge

    Face Your Passion: Building Your Bridge
    Changing something about your life is pretty straightforward. 
    Figure out what you want and change it.
    Are you done laughing?
    Most folks fall on the way to their dreams because they don't move, move at the wrong time, or move too fast. That's why, once you know what you want, it's time to build your bridge.
    Here’s how:
    1) Fortify your current foundation. Save money, pay bills, do whatever it takes to create a firm and peaceful base to build.
    2) Begin constructing the foundation for your new life. Go to school, network, research, and plan. Do everything in your power to assure your success with no regret.
    3) When you're ready, leave your past behind, cut off the old, and begin living your new life. Be patient. Wait until you are at least 70% ready to succeed before you cross to the other side.  
    Success arrives when you move from a strong TODAY to a stronger TOMORROW. Don’t leap too soon, but don’t delay either.
