Making Good Habits: Never Assume Anything

I’ll be the first to admit I’m not perfect. And no one is perfect, and that is just a fact of life.

One of the reasons I know I’m not perfect is the amount of times it appears I am being taught a lesson by life. The worst part about these lessons is they usually end up “okay” but the actions leading to the resolution make it a lot more complicated, awkward and guilt-ridden than they should have been.

Motivation Defined

With some of the negative things going on in life and in the world, it makes some days hard to be motivated. I know, I know. Motivation is what links us to our successes and we must stay on top of them … I was thinking the other day, “what really is motivation and how is it really defined?

Did you know that the “powerhouse” to your dreams is your mind and the power of positive thinking?

I am a huge believer in having systems and processes for everything. These systems and processes MUST be written down… AND… a team member needs to be responsible and “own” each process.

What do I mean by that? Well, when a team member “owns” their processes, they will be responsible for editing and updating them as time goes on.

21-Day Challenges

Believe me; having big, courageous goals can be intimidating and a bit unbearable.

And…I know that it can be difficult to keep your mind and emotions involved for a long time span. Especially, over an entire span of 12 months, 52 weeks and 365 days.

A Better Way

The New Year is finally here and I want to share with you a simple process to reflect upon your life, where it’s been, and where it’s going. There’s a phrase that the late Steve Jobs said so often that it became his mantra and helped him build Apple…

“There has to be a better way”.

Being great was NEVER good enough for Steve.

Being Inconsistent

I know where human failure is. I know the Achilles heel of human nature. And it’s the one fatal flaw I have mastered. It is the one characteristic I would attribute to any unusual success that I’ve had AND that gives me an enormous advantage in any race that I choose to take on.
