With all the distractions around these days, it’s too easy to lose focus on what you have to do or complete your tasks on time. There are times when life seems to “get in the way”. Then the negative factors kick in. There’s not enough time. I am working too hard with no end in sight. I Can’t DO IT!!!
I can relate to this a lot recently. I do quite a lot of things anyway, but recently there have been weddings for 2 of my sons and my mother fell and broke her hip. This led to me going to the hospital nearly every day as well as helping to care for my elderly father. Don’t get me wrong, these things I NEED to do, but when you’re focused on getting business stuff done, these distractions are a real Continue reading
Many of us have been in a situation where you have a good idea what must be done, but can’t do it. You know it’s the right thing to do, but you can’t move. We all know that Action speaks louder than words, so why do we let ourselves get stuck?
Horrible feeling and position to be in – STUCK!!
You keep going over and over things in your head, but even then don’t do anything about it. You have the belief that everything will work out. Somehow life will just magically work it out for you. Then, whatever the Continue reading
Sometimes we need a little creative thinking to come up with solutions to problems. If you’re like me, you will always work on the premise that there is not a problem, but there is a solution. The thought process of knowing there is always a solution triggers that creative thinking to be able to come up with that seemingly elusive solution.
How many times have you found yourself thinking there will be no other solution to a problem? You even think that problem leads to a dead end! How many times have you been stuck and believe the problem in front of you is Continue reading
They say “It takes two to tango”. Well, it also takes at least two to argue. It’s not possible to have an argument with someone if there is no reaction. My advice is don’t argue. If you need to find solutions to create a win/win outcome, then arguing isn’t going to serve you. The best way to reach a reasonable and acceptable outcome is to ask questions.
In coaching it’s normal to encourage people to ask questions so the other person can hear the potential solution in their own words. It’s said that coaches don’t ask questions to hear the answer themselves, but Continue reading

Einstein said – “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions. Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Thinking of where he was when he came up with the Theory of Relativity, this must Continue reading
Success is simply achieved by doing the things that are easy to do, but they are also easy NOT to do. Failure is the result of the ease of not doing just ONE simple task that is important in the whole scheme of things.
How do I know this? Well, I have experienced it myself and have learned the lessons Continue reading
As adults we tend to live in what may be called a cycle of life. These can be based on memories and various points of our life where these memories derive from. This can cause us to have either a negative or a positive cycle that we continuously draw on in our subconscious mind. This can have a great influence on how we live our lives and how we deal with these life experiences over time. Some deal with them very well and others not so well. Question is, which cycle of life do you occupy? Continue reading
