Do The Headwork Before The Handwork...

This is not a quick read; try to come up with more of your own as these are by no means the "be all end all." The purpose of this exercise is to get you thinking and analyzing to know YOU better!

Now is the time to evaluate you, where you are - where you want to go, and most importantly how you expect to get there.

Remember, do the headwork before the handwork!

Remember the difference between where you are and where you want to go is what you DO. Consider this part I of your DO List.

Once you determine your passion, it's time to move forward. When we follow our passion and do what we love, success will follow.

Realize that success looks different for each of us; only you can determine what success means for you.

When others succeed with my help, that's success and is a great tool for that.

Follow your passion, love what you do, do what you love and do your best is a strategy for success.

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love


Make Your Life Assets of Knowledge Sell

The title says it all!
We all have some knowledge that many people may want.

Think about that!

Because it's always been done a certain way doesn't make it the right way, the best way, or a way that cannot be improved. The "It's always been done this way" is the lazy person who don't want to rock the boat.

When people say "it's always been done this way"; you may have just stumbled upon an OPPORTUNITY!

Sometimes a great opportunity may be "seeing" what others don't or won't. When we open ourselves to become a possibility phenomena (Powertudeâ„¢ Principle #1); the results are often new ideas that can spearhead new business ventures.

Opportunity Knocking!

There's something rejuvenating about new, different or improved. Never just go along with the status quo. Be open to exploring and expanding your horizons.

On a personal note, I have a habit of changing things around in my home. This occurs so often that the first thing my grandchildren do on their weekly visit is look around to see "what's changed". Now, these changes are usually small, the location of a rug, rehang a picture, a better spot for a lamp or a plant.

I wonder if this is a compulsion; or nervous energy, is it a woman's thing; am I the only one doing this? As I ponder these questions, it strikes me how much nicer my bookcase will look behind my desk, I'll change that now, and then back to work.

Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises

Sometimes It's A Light Tap...

In The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Stephen Covey discusses "The Power of a Paradigm". In the author's words "two people can see the same thing, disagree, and yet both are right".

Likewise, presented with the same opportunity, two people can come away with different views about it.

Why is this? Is it that our views and emotions are based on who we are and what we know that influence what we "see"?
