To Survive, And Perchance To Dream…..



Let me throw all the crap against the wall and lets just see what sticks!! It seems to me that the older I get; the more I hear about the people who have forgotten about why they got in “The Game” and settle instead into complacency and give up on the successes they had plans for or the dreams they once held near and dear. This is not…

Keep Your Head in the Game and If Necessary: Adapt

The eyes and the mind can play tricks on you and on your ability to accomplish a days task successfully. Case in point; look at the picture to the left and make a note of what you see…..do you see the black dots? Are they there or is it just in your mind? Stuff like this happens on a daily basis when we allow the mind to wander—> the eyes will see what the mind reveals, and you will believe this as fact. How does this factor into the work day? Simple…

You make a “To-Do”…

Believing in Dreams and their Creation

Today I thought I would take a detour off of the beaten path and look with a fresh insight at what it takes to dream and to create…

The mind is a wonderful thing; always operating even when we are sleeping. It provides us with a place to store knowledge and ideas, and when it is functioning properly it challenges us to create a better lifestyle for ourselves and our family. It is full of untapped potential for imagination, creativity, or a source which provides the…

Authenticity, Believability and Commitment



To me, there seems to be two types of people in the workforce: Those that can and those that wish they could. Once we realize which of the two groups we are currently in, then we can take the steps necessary to advance to the more prestigious group.

Motivation

How many people get up in the morning with more energy than they know what to do with; AND can hardly wait to get the day started at the workplace? Okay, you can put your hands down now.

Is it issues in the family life that distract you from the work cycle? Are you burnt out due to the stress and the pressures of the position OR… Continue

Reputation- Good, Bad, Indifferent….

“Consider reputation: Who do other people think you are?”- Marshall Goldsmith 2011.



Interesting comment I read from the Coach on Friday morning as I was going through my mail; and it made me stop to think- Who do others think I am- and am I creating the correct impression about myself publically and professionally?

How do you Become The Best….

Six words which form what I think is one of the great un-answered questions of all time. Others have tried, come close or failed to attain the brassiest of brass rings—and that is to discover how one becomes the best!!



Is it a course or an educational module? Is it something found with style, a trendy newspaper, or the tabloids? Is it an expression? or possibly a frame of mind? Could be…any or all of the above plus other thoughts not yet expressed. Or it could be none of the above… Continue
