Keep priorities where they belong, first ones first.

So many things screaming at you every day “I’m the most important, do me next.” You really should spend more time at work to get ahead.You really should spend more time volunteering.You really should spend more money on charities.You really should spend more time with your spouse.You really […]

Make your priorities match your goals

The tyranny of our busy world usually dictates a set of priorities. Stuff that needs to be done ASAP. “Things,” these urgent tasks and responsibilities, rarely if ever align with our long-term goals and objectives.  They just don’t.  They don’t align, and they don’t care at all what you want or need long term.  They […]

The path onward is often not straight, and never easy

Why is this so true? Why is “two steps forward, one step backward”  the “way” of things? I think it’s because as humans we are kind of stubborn and daft.  We just are.  Look I’m sorry if you’re the one person that has it all together, doesn’t make mistakes in life, has everything they want, […]

You’re gonna face a situation where the “easy” path will not be the “right” path. You’re gonna even get advice to do something that actually makes sense but is not “right.” You’re going to evaluate your options, and there […]

Breathe deeply and press on.

Day after day, mile after mile. Life can get busy, DARN busy. In fact so many wear their busyness like a badge of honor.   Do you know why you do what you do? Is there a purpose behind the busy, behind the constant barrage of “stuff” that must be done? Take time to pause […]

Push yourself through to your goal.

Goals are interesting beasts. They have a way of being both elusive and challenging. While difficult, goals are also healthy. Putting a “stake in the ground” to hold yourself accountable to accomplishing something important. It’s not only good practice but for many people essential to achieving what they want to accomplish. Virtually all successful people […]
