Billions Are Being Spent To Make Machines Smarter… But Who’s Going to Make You Smarter Than a Machine?
We have become a “survival of the smartest” global economy where human capital needs to be retooled, reimagined, and reinvented. And we need to do it quickly.
Put simply, we need to make people — not just machines — smarter about what they think and do each day — at work and at home.
To achieve this, The World Excellence Project has developed and deployed a smart new App designed to make you smarter in the moment.
This is something of a BAD news, GOOD news story…
The bad news is that 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February. Around 50% bite the dust by January 12th!
The good news is that you can turn THIS year into your best year ever by simply putting more RESOLVE in your resolutions.
There is no reason for you to work your tail off and still come up short this year. But to do this, you will need to take a slightly different approach, and employ a more consistent course of action.
We are all creatures of habit…
The truth is, habits you created 1-5-10 years ago are controlling your life today. This is as obvious as it is well documented.
I always love to read this quote by Maya Angelou around the new year, as it sums up a hundred pages of thoughts in a single sentence, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”
Isn’t this what we all want?
A life filled with passion and purpose?
A life of compassion and hope?
To thrive with style?!
Of course it is!
The App Napoleon Hill Would Have Loved and Wanted You To Have!
In 1937, Dr. Napoleon Hill penned a book that would sell millions of copies and become the touchstone for self-improvement readers everywhere.
He titled it, Think and Grow Rich… a book designed to connect the dots between our imagination… our ideas… the thoughts we think… and our ultimate success in life.
Around the same time, a young scientist named Albert Einstein opined that, “Education is not merely the learning of facts. But rather, education is training the mind to think.”
WOW — what a great idea — a system to get us to think and grow rich.
Kindness Is Essential to Your Success…
We you think of a truly powerful and successful person, what do you see?
Drive, for sure.
Mastery of success-essential skills?
Always operates out of a higher sense of passion and purpose?
Is generous, appreciative and thankful for what they have now, not just in the pursuit of more?
Emotionally committed to helping others thrive?
A person who inspires hope in others… a powerful compassionate leader?
Accept Thy Self: Heal Thy Self…
When you do, you earn the freedom to pursue your dreams to the full extent possible!
All of our hopes and dreams begin in our imagination.
What we call our Someday Dreams in Success On Purpose…
Someday I will go to Alaska…
Someday I will learn to play the piano…
Someday I will be married to a wonderful, warm and loving person…
Someday my family will enjoy the fruits of all my hopes and dreams.
Of course, the list is endless… because our imaginations are boundless.
When we created Success on Purpose the idea of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction in life was a big question mark.
We see the finding authenticity to be a connection issue.
Connection with your VALUES…
Connection with your VISION…
Connection with your ROLES…
If you live your values while pursuing your visions in all the various areas of your life, you have Authentic Direction.
If you live someone else’s vision… or someone else’s values… you will certainly have problems in finding Authentic Roles.
Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.
In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward.
To do this they create an inspiring vision, and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision.
We all know that to achieve extraordinary results we must be absolutely committed to both, the big WHY behind our actions as well as the expected RESULTS.
Commitment is one of those giant words we see as instrumental to the pursuit of both success and happiness.
It is very much a “believing is seeing” issue.
In TQ-speak, commitment is the 5th C in the 6 C’s of success as found in Success On Purpose:
Clarity of VALUES leads to clarity of VISION…
Clarity of VISION leads to clarity of ROLES…
Clarity of ROLES leads to the absolute CONVICTION that what you are about to do is the RIGHT thing to be doing…
Which leads to the unconditional COMMITMENT to doing whatever is required to achieve the vision…
What does the word HONOR mean to you?
Most people think of honor in the same light as respect.
But for most of us, the word has a much deeper meaning, especially if you served in the military.
Take a couple of minutes to focus your attention on the above video.
THINK about the word in context to the ever-changing story of your life.
Focus… Focus… Focus…
An amazing thing happens to people.
When you stop to THINK, great things happen!
Which, of course, is the whole point of The Time Prism… a tool that simply asks you to Turn On… Tune In… and Turn Up your performance.
By getting you to stop for a moment… take a breath… and THINK!

All progress in history is made by people who challenged their limits…
