Time – It’s So Precious


Time is perhaps the rarest of all commodities. With each passing second, we have less of it. It can never be replaced. Yet, we go through life as if it will never end. With the never ending demands of existence and with the rapid pace of technological changes, what can one do to better manage time? Here are a few suggestions: * The key to next generation time management is more about deciding what not to do. You do not have time to do everything. Saying "no" is a powerful weapon. * Whenever you can create a process today, you will [...]

Life And Success Is About The Little Things


The little things are usually the most boring things. How does a warrior handle the boring things in life that typically fill up one's day? Like writing checks, doing laundry, buying groceries or cleaning the house? Well, a warrior does all of these small things with great effectiveness. They do it with a sense of humor, inventiveness and humor. They sing when they do dishes. They slow down and enjoy everything. If I continuously activate the "boring" category in my head it is going to be a long day. I'll drag myself around wondering how I can get it all done. [...]

Always Finish Strong


How many times have you seen people who fail to finish strong because they know they are soon finished with a job, school, work-out, etc. Sometimes that extra 5 minutes you give your project after you've decided to quit kicks you into a strange new gear....a powerful new zone. This doesn't happen all the time, and when it doesn't, you've lost nothing. Just quit after those 5 minutes. But....it happens ENOUGH to really surprise you that you had so much more to give, and you had energy left you didn't know you had. You thought you were too tired to go [...]

Absolute Focus


"It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer." ---- Albert Einstein Einstein identifies something powerful here. The source of his genius. Absolute focus. Absolute focus is the key to all great human achievement. Its opposite, preoccupation, is the enemy of all achievement. Write this thought down, because it can change your life: Preoccupation is the enemy of all achievement. In any activity, preoccupation is the enemy. It's true with cooking, driving, golfing, gardening, painting, anything. Taking ownership is the highest form of focus: It's a willingness to bring everything you've got to a situation. To [...]

Your Picture Perfect World Is Right in Front Of You


Problems make all of us better. They make us wiser, stronger and more productive. If we had a pill to get rid of problems, we would all be addictive. Yet, we demonize problems, run from them, and think they are awful and shouldn't be happening. We have a story of a future perfect world and it's a story that ruins the even better world right in front of us. It's the story that has you desiring something other than the opportunity in front of you. That desire is what keeps you from enjoying the present and being a time warrior. Don't [...]

Keep Moving


Natalie Goldberg's priceless advice to writers is something all of us can use. Her advice was, "Keep your hands moving." That's it! The last thing and the only thing you need to remember. Doing things really isn't the problem, thinking about doing things is the only problem. It's always worse in the mind than it is in the real world. All those things we hate doing. "There, that wasn't so bad, was it?" How many times have our parents, teachers or our friends said those words to us? Hundreds. Thousands. Don't dread anything any more. Just jump in and do it. [...]

Make Your Hours Count


Very interesting article in Investors Business Daily by Michael Mink dated 2/24/15. Michael gathered information from Rory Vaden who authored a book titled, "Procrastinate On Purpose." Vaden suggests putting tasks through a focus funnel: What can't be discarded, done by technology or given to someone else is for you to do immediately. Here are his suggestions: 1) Eliminate: Next generation time management is more about deciding what not to do. By learning to say no, you are multiplying time. 2) Automate: When you create a process today, you are saving time tomorrow. 3) Find the app: Using smart phone technology multiplies [...]

Decision Making Made Easy


Ever struggle with making decisions? I know I have. I hear from a lot of people that decisons are tough. I use to be the poster boy for having a hard time making decisions. My past is littered with tension filled moments of me flip-flopping between choices out of fear that I'd make the wrong decision. Can you relate? But if I clarify what I want to create in any area of my life, decisions become very simple. If I'm considering a decision, I ask this question: Does this action or thought support what I want and who I want to [...]

What Do You Choose?


"The most important choice you make is what you choose to make important." --- Michael Neill Anyone can be a DOER instead of a feeler. It happens the moment you take action. A DOER uses a three-step system to guaranteed success: 1) They figure out what they want to achieve. 2) They figure out what needs to be done to achieve it. And, 3) They just do it. This is not a theory, this is the actual measured and observed system used by all super achievers without fail. Whether you are a DOER or a feeler has nothing to do with [...]

Action To be Liberated


"Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you." -- Thomas Jefferson We all know those who can spend their entire day in a deep soft chair trying to decide who they are, trying to decide what to do next, trying to decide what they want to do, trying to decide all sorts of things. But I notice by them doing just that, they are less effective and capable as human beings and their sense of self trust disappears. This is called decision misery. You become miserable avoiding making decisions. I have been [...]
