Taking inspiration - the time is now

It’s been an amazing summer, and it’s still not over yet.

For many of us the day-to-day routine of early mornings, making lunches, school drop offs, and rushing to get to work on time has returned. In the haze that is normal life, it is so easy to forget the good things that the summer brought.…

How to Keep Motivated…

Is there a way to keep motivated when the chips are down or you are going through a slump? Being that most of us are self-employed or sub-contracted (possibly even contracted…let’s cover all the bases!) Motivation becomes key to our daily lives and definitely to our production. Without the motivation or the will to carry on, the day becomes…

Education? Why- I'm Already Good....

So you have a career in the field of your dreams, and you are making a fairly good living- the bills are covered, the social life is on fire, the family situation is just as you like it at this time (subject to change: like life!). AND….You look as though there is no end in sight for the success you feel you deserve, after all the long hours, the…

A Review of Sorts…#radicalplanet

Interesting thing on the way to the Unconference! Besides the obvious problems with the highway going to Toronto, Ontario; and the fact that a one hour commute in this day is an average of 2 hours now, I had absolutely NO idea what to expect. I don’t work well with the unknown (yet my career would say…

Preparation Is Key

In my opinion failure to prepare for anything you do in life, never mind my job as a recruiter or for an interview is a fatal sin.

 

Abraham Lincoln said “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four hours sharpening the axe".  This is the way any successful person should prepare for every battle.  Don’t get me wrong I haven’t always been someone…

Economic Sage Wisdom For The Ages

It goes without saying - every move you make has the potential to shape your career for years to come.  From time to time, when you are not looking for a new role - well curious folks come knocking on the door and try to lure you away.  In these economic times, many of us have not had that happen for some time and perhaps, we go from place to place, company to company seeking a haven from the economic storm brewing all around us, even facing a unique opportunity or two, where the money may…

I Got Lost on Twitter on my way to a Tweeting…..

Tweet chats are conversations or discussions which take place using Twitter. I had the honour of taking part in two of them this week, (#radchat on Tuesday evening and #T-chat on Wednesday evening) and was impressed with what I saw. The passion which people displayed when expressing their points on a particular question was nothing short of contagious.

As a relative new-comer to the experience, I fully expected to just observe; meaning sit at my PC and watch the…

And in the Beginning… or… Am I Primed to Start the Day?

You wake up in the morning, hopefully after a full night of sleep (made possible by a lack of problems in the mind..Or you are starting a new position.) and would like to think you will take on the world and win.

How? Do you have a plan? Do you have a routine or ritual? Or do you just run “off the cuff” and hope all the day-stars will line up correctly…

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”…

Keeping Your Eye on The Goal In The Midst of The Great Recession

The topic of the economy continues to be at the forefront of every discussion.  Today, I returned from South San Francisco after conducting a workshop entitled Link-up to LinkedIn, LinkedIn Basics - advertised here:

Your Brand is only as Good as Your Weakest Link…Guess Who?



Look in the mirror and ask yourself -“Can I perform my duties to the best of my abilities today? Or is this going to be one of those rare days that I am just going to go through the motions?” Answer honestly, because that will set the tone for your day as well as set your mind-set (good or bad).

If you genuinely believe that you will be successful today, then you will feel a little glow of positive energy which should carry you through the day…

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. It has been beaten into us from the time we are old enough to understand that we always have to be…

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. For the rest of you, why is it so hard to get excited at the new work day? Is it because of the number of years of service (that the supervisors refuse to acknowledge)? 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? And if I’m wondering, how many others are taking stock on how or what they are perceived to be?



When you get up each morning- Are you excited to see a new day,… Continue

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
