Learning to become less scattered and more purposeful takes more than a night. Learning to live your life with intention requires that you be completely honest with yourself – realizing who you are at the center of your being, knowing where you’re headed. Facing your weaknesses and isolating the obstacles that stand in the way of your personal effectiveness. Sailing past those obstacles, and onto brighter horizons.
I get a real kick out of watching people understand that they have the power to change. It’s like the proverbial light bulb going off and someone saying, “Wow! I can have anything I want!”
Many of us have aspirations to own our own business – to be our own boss. Every year hundreds of thousands of small businesses get […]
If you’ve made a trip to the bookstore or library lately, you’ve probably noticed how incredibly many self-help books there are on the shelves. But I’m a little concerned that some people seem to always be reading the latest self-help book and saying things like, “This is the book for me. This is what I’m going to do to change my life.”
There are several challenges and obstacles to self-improvement. Without knowing it, you may be doing things that will stunt your personal and professional growth. Read […]
They say we receive in kind those things we project into the world around us. Be it kindness, meanness, honesty, or deceit, the world has a way of paying us back in spades.

No matter who you are, where you’ve been or where you’re headed, there is always room
for change – a new perspective and a new plan to define what’s most important to you.
Remember – the goal here is to know that a cookie-cutter prescription for success simply doesn’t exist in today’s world. To know that it’s ultimately up to you to make the plan.
Over at Pick the Brain I’ve created a post titled A Smarter Approach to Time Management.
It takes hard work and perseverance to go from overbooked and distracted, to productive and effective. We must first learn to overcome obstacles – old ways of thinking, defeatist patterns of behavior, fears and so forth. But through patient persistence and gentle guidance, people are able to discover their own unique ability to define and create ideal lives for themselves, against all odds and despite what everyone else is saying.

I’m a relatively happy guy, but sometimes I can get pretty out of sorts. Usually that is related to something I’ve been meaning to do, or always wanted to do. Something, of course, that remains on my “to do” list, and never quite makes it to my did list.
Admittedly, it’s tough to just suddenly pull up the emergency brake on a life in the fast lane. Many people feed off the adrenaline rush and frenetic pace of today’s hooked-up, turned-on world. But the truth is that if you don’t get control of your own future, you’ll eventually crash and burn. I know this for a fact because I was this close to facing a dire situation in my own work and life.
I did a really fun and unique interview today with Mike Vardy of EffTD™. Mike’s satircal sense of style and humor was a real hoot.
The podcast will be up shortly.
