This week’s post is for those of us who need a little motivation for that bigger than life project we’re working on. Whether it was assigned, or you volunteered for it, you know the one I mean. It is the one you’ll be working on this weekend. It’s the one that seems to never be finished; the one that keeps you awake at night. It is the most challenging project on your plate. Sometimes, it…Continue

Recruiting can be a very misunderstood job and finding a true "star" in this industry is not easy. So how do you make a star recruiter?
Is it in the training? Uh-uh. Despite the claims of very successful professional recruiting trainers, I don't think that is it. It might increase the probability, but…Continue

“We are stronger when we listen and smarter when we share.”
I develop people for a living; it’s my thing, my speciality. In that capacity it can be tempting to try to be the most knowledgeable person in the room, to try…Continue

Quick note - For over a year I have been publishing a motivational blog on the edenchanges.com website. My reasoning is simple - as a development specialist delivering training and coaching to the recruitment industry I know that recruiters could do with all the motivation and inspiration they can get!
There are times in every career, every moment of the day where a point of decision about how to approach things, how to win the battles that others throw our way, and how to make greatness the pivitol differentiating inner commitment where one defines for themselves just how much they will…Continue

If you look back in time, maybe around 40+ years ago, employees found a job within a company and were expected to stay with that same company for their entire career in exchange for a pension and a gold watch or pen. Now times have changed dramatically, most people have 5-8 career changes in their lifetime.
So now employees are faced with a new decision, how to determine when to leave their current job. This may…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
I’ve seen it before, but didn’t recognize it for what it was at the time.
On my own at an early age and scrambling one month for a fourth roommate to split rent, serendipity
delivered a guy, let’s call him Will, who had that “spark” so hard to identify with when the uncertainty of daily sustenance overshadows all else.
At the time, three teens living in a rented “Animal House” of sorts, not unlike I imagine sorority houses dotting the lanscape back in the…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
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”…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

What if the journey begins with "impossible" as the first step towards the realization of the objective? Is it possible?
It is not if you have self doubts. It is not if you have preset evaluation about…Continue
