5 Great Things About Blogging

These days, it seems everyone has a blog, and if you don’t have one, you’re supposed to. It’s “good business,” “great self-promotion.” Many people have blogs just because they think it’s the smart thing to do to build their business, and for no other reason.

In my very humble opinion, these people are missing a lot. I love blogging, and I think it has some very real benefits, not only for the readers of the blog, which we’d hope for, but also for the blogger

Small Business Trends Column – Who Else (Besides a Majority of Business Professionals) Wants Work Life Balance in 2008?

A nationwide survey sheds some light as to what people think will help them achieve their business goals in 2008. What made the top of the list? Achieving a work-life balance!

This should come to no surprise to many of you reading this.

If You Don’t Live for Today, You’ll Never Enjoy Tomorrow

Are you the type of person who is always looking towards the future because you believe that you can’t take much more of the present? The kind of person who always thinks that tomorrow will bring a relief from our problems and obstacles, so we just need to wait and they will all magically go away? Many people tend to live in the future (that is, if they aren’t living in the past!) and fail to realize the opportunities available to them in the present.

Action or Inaction: Which Will You Regret More?

How many times have you heard someone saying, “I sure wish I would have…” or “If only I had taken the chance and…”. Our lives are full of decisions. And a decision we make every day is whether or not to do certain tasks. The question is which will you regret doing more – an action that you took, or an action that you didn’t take?

Do You Make the Mistake of getting Hungry, Angry, Lonely, and/or Tired?

I have had a few of those days myself, and I have noticed a pattern. At least one of these things is almost always true when I have a day, or even a period of several hours, where I’m not functioning well.

How do you define success? Are you successful when you achieve your goals you set out in life? Or do you feel successful even when you haven’t achieved them all, but are working towards them and feel good in life? The truth is, for each one of us we have a different definition of success.

What Everybody Should Know About Time Management and Getting Things Done

If you’ve tried recently, or even not so recently, to “get organized” and “manage your time,” you’ve probably noticed that it just isn’t that easy. You feel like you’re getting more done, and done faster, but you’re not feeling any better. You’re just working harder and faster, without seeing any real change in your life, at least not any positive change.

I suggest that what you need is not just to come up with a way to organize your life and time, but a way to slow down.

What? Isn’t this all about getting more done, and getting it done faster?
