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.
This morning we had a wonderful conversation about getting 2018 off to the best start possible.
My advice was simple.
Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle. Label the left half WHAT I DON’T WANT… and the right side WHAT I REALLY WANT…
Listen to the audio and follow along.
1 hour here and you will not only have better direction, but a real head start towards guaranteeing 2018 becomes YOUR year.
Today our incredible new Time Prism — The World’s Smartest App™ became REAL…

Today it became real on Google Play.
On Tuesday, it will become real on the Apple Store.
Thousands of years of wisdom in the palm of your hand…
Driven by the world’s first Transparent Learning Engine.
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.
I made it a habit years ago to ruthlessly limit my exposure to junk, fake and useless news to just 30 minutes a day.
That is more than enough time to get a global perspective on what’s going on, process what is being said, and form an opinion.
Think about this.
There are only 1,440 minutes in a day (24 hours x 60 minutes).
Subtract 440 for sleep, rest, and downtime — you have 1,000 prime minutes to make all your dreams real.
“Christmas is the perfect time to celebrate the love of God and family and to create memories that will last forever. Jesus is God’s perfect, indescribable gift. The amazing thing is that not only are we able to receive this gift, but we are able to share it with others on Christmas and every other day of the year.” ~ Joel Osteen
“My Christmas wish for you is for you to become all you are meant to be. It is also my challenge to you. FACT: Become the best version of yourself possible, and all your hopes and dreams will be realized… because you are never given a dream without also being given the power to realize it. But, you may have to work a lot smarter than ever before.” ~ E. R. Haas, CEO
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”~ Steve Jobs
If you love great sci-fi, there is nothing more appealing than walking through a stargate to galaxies beyond our own.
One minute you are here on Earth, the next on the other side of the Pegasus galaxy… facing the exciting unknown — the good, the bad, and the different.
Our journey through time is like that.
One moment we are young and have an entire life ahead, and the next, we are facing the inevitability of our demise.
To achieve your dreams… to maintain balance in the heat of the battle… to know that you have done the best you could given the circumstances you faced… requires you to focus on the important, and not be consumed by the urgent.
This is a major driver of success, both personally and professionally. It is not hard to focus, if you know what’s important to you, and what’s not.
If you want to achieve results well beyond your current hopes and dreams, let us help you find out precisely what’s holding you back… and eliminate it!

Something to always remember: Money is what we get for the exchange of our labor.
Develop outstanding skills, you make a lot of money.
Remain stuck in status-quo, business as usual thinking, you make less.
Every person has skills unique to them.
The key is to discover them, nurture them, and fully exploit them.
Look inside the men and women charged with keeping us free, and you will see a fierce determination to succeed.
They know the mission, and are willing to lay down their lives to achieve it.
Sometimes by just their sheer force of will.
And an unconditional commitment to a single word: EXCELLENCE:
Excellence in THOUGHT…
Excellence in PLANNING…
Excellence in ACTION…
What is the PURPOSE of this great country we call AMERICA? How do our individual Values, Visions and Roles triangulate into a mission that gives our collective purpose true meaning and significance?
Purpose is the definitive statement of the difference one is trying to make in the world. Ultimately, it is your fundamental calling to make the world different, not to just make a slight difference.
To paraphrase Aristotle, where your talents and the needs of the world cross, there lies your purpose.
At the exact halfway point in the year, I find it useful to look back to see what I have accomplished—and look forward to see what I hope to accomplish before the year runs its course.
In a way, this turning-point is a critical juncture in reaffirming that what I say I want, is indeed what I intend to spend my working days pursuing—and if I have the power necessary to transform my hopes into tangible results.
Theodore Levitt, Publisher of the Harvard Business Review and numerous books on marketing and business management, observed that there are 2 key ingredients to world changing success: Innovation and Marketing.
Both are driven by your imagination and an unshakeable belief in what is possible.
