How Priorities & Goals Can Make This Your Best Year Ever

I want to encourage you all to set goals and priorities for the year. This is one of those things that is super important– even though some people put it off because they feel like it’s dumb. Or maybe they set resolutions in the past and never met them. Don’t worry if you didn’t set any resolutions in January.  This is about creating your priorities, and making this year the best one yet. What I want you to do this year is write down as many goals and priorities as you can. These can be things that you have been putting off,...

Momentum: The Importance Of Taking Action

We are momentum based beings. When we keep moving forward, we thrive. When we stop, we stagnate. There’s a positive feedback loop when you keep taking action. As soon as you stop, that loop ends, and unfortunately we tend to focus on the last result we got (which was negative). But if you keep adapting, keep adjusting, keep learning, and keep trying– then with each incremental step you gain more confidence for the next attempt.

How to Infuse Purpose Into Every Day and Make Your Own Roadmap to Success

  I hate feeling like time is slipping by.  When I catch myself thinking, “wow, is September over already?” then I know I need to get on top of things. The question is: how, exactly? For me, the answer is simple: make a roadmap.   Charting Out Where You Want To Go Constantly living in a reactionary state is draining.  When you start each day with resignation, with a dread of what may come, that’s a terrible way to approach life. Not only does it wear on you mentally, it burns you out emotionally as well. Many people spend their workdays “putting out fires.”...
