This means mastering your Clock Management skills.

Regardless of who you are… young or old… rich or broke… successful or struggling… we all have exactly the same number of minutes to work with:

There is a problem in every opportunity and an opportunity in every problem.

Nothing will torpedo your chance at success faster than a poor attitude.

You will never excel until you connect your actions to something you truly value.

This week, we will be getting VERY personal… asking the truly IMPORTANT questions:

Are you actually LIVING what you say you value, or are you consumed by the moment…
with no forward movement in the direction of your dreams?

The importance of knowing what you value more than something else is critical to your day-to-day performance.

What’s Your Forgetting Curve Costing You?

What’s Your Forgetting Curve Costing You?

All habits, our good ones, and our bad ones are based on 3 basic conditions:

1) A TRIGGER — something that gets your attention and reminds you to take some kind of action…

2) A BEHAVIOR — a specific action you will automatically take…

3) A REWARD — what you get when you recognize the Trigger and engage in the Behavior to get the Reward you desire.

Habits are based on CRAVINGS, either positive or negative.

Crave nicotine and you smoke.

Crave chocolate and you eat cake.

Crave success and you grow rich — when you take the right sequence of actions.

The sad truth is that opportunity doesn’t knock twice.

I have built my entire life around seizing ever-growing opportunities.

I have yet to hear even ONE knock on my door — or whack me upside my head.

Opportunities behave quite differently from what we have been trained to expect.

You must have POWERFUL LENSES with which to see and sense them.

A Long Journey to Vision

A Life is a Terrible Thing To Waste…

It is also a wonderful thing to embrace!

Most people go through their lives with a deep case of Success Myopia… they have no vision beyond the obviousness of their lives.

They fail to see the ever-present opportunities, the signs pointing to a better life, and the big milestones in their lives.

Without vision you WILL perish. Your dreams die, your hopes fade, and you find yourself in a thorny field of deep regrets.

Challenge yourself, right up to the point where it isn’t fun any more.

Challenge yourself, right up to the point where it isn’t fun any more.

“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.” ~ Nolan Bushnell The Most Eye-Opening […]

Goals: The Confluence Between Dreams, Desires & Beliefs

Goals: The Confluence Between Dreams, Desires & Beliefs

There are many popular definitions of the word GOAL.

Most define it as a dream with a date… we define it as a dream with a deadline.

The deadline implies a commitment to both the dream and the time it will take to achieve it.

A better definition might be that goals represent the confluence between Desirability and Believability.

It is the recognition that it takes BOTH to create a goal that will ultimately be achieved.
