Last week, I opened with a discussion around how in December many people start making resolutions for the upcoming year, and less than 1% of them are still attempting to execute these resolutions 30 days later. If you are reading this week, then you must be willing to try something different this year. Are you really? Remember, lists (or as most people call them in December, “resolutions”) are useless without proper focus and a deliberate mindset. Once you have those two things, you still need to develop action plans; but wait, you’re not done yet. What about executing your plans?
As I mentioned last week, this coming year, I am challenging you to try something new. You’re reading again this week, so I’m assuming you’re on-board. You see, I don’t like seeing busy people waste their time and energy on activities that are fruitless. They may feel like they are being efficient, but are their activities effective?
This week, I’m going to share…Read More
If you are one of those people who sit down in December and make a list of things you’re going to do differently in the next year, or how you’re going to change, or how you’re going to lead in business more…stop right now! Lists – or as most people call them in December, “resolutions” – are useless without proper focus and a deliberate mindset. Once you have those two things, you still need to develop action plans. But wait, you’re not done yet. What about executing your plans? Scary, isn’t it?
This year, I am challenging you to try something new. If you’re willing to do that, continue on with me. If you’re not, good luck with your lottery ticket! You see, I don’t like seeing busy people waste their time and energy on activities that are fruitless. Do you realize that less than 1% of the people that make New Year’s Resolutions execute on them.
This week, I’m going to…Read More
Last week, we began the journey of how we can develop “Winning Strategies for Life and Business”. We talked about examining your talents, daily activities and clutter, good and bad habits, and all the roles you possess.
As we continue, today, I’m going to challenge each and every one of you to take some time and evaluate where in your life and business you truly want and need to make PROGRESS, not change. Then, I’m going to ask you to step out of your comfort zone and start making it all happen. As we continue to discuss the areas you should include in your plan, continue to concentrate on developing the visions, strategies, and action plans necessary to “win” in your life and business. Here are the remaining areas I believe you should include in your plan:Read More
Wow! Can you believe it’s almost the middle of November already? Well, like it or not, it’s here, and if you’re wise about your life and business, you’re already thinking ahead to 2014 and beyond. In about a month, many people will sit around and talk about all the changes they’re going to make and all the exciting things they’re going to do in the New Year. This year, I’m challenging each of you to take some steps to create a vision for your life and business NOW. Build strategies to aim toward your visions, develop goals that will drive your strategies, and create action plans to get you there. You see, most people rarely, if ever, do any of these things. Oh sure, some people make New Year’s Resolutions and some people make “to do” lists. But, is that all it takes to make your visions reality? Absolutely not!
Now, let me continue to be brutally honest. When most people create their goals for a New Year, approximately 1% of them are actually still progressing on these goals 30 days later. Most of them don’t even look at the list again until the following January. Why? I believe many people make…Read More
