I was working at home today and looked out the window and saw a huge hawk sitting on my deck. I watched him for a few minutes and it occurred to me I was witnessing a very important life lesson. Usually when I see hawks they are either high up in the sky or sitting [...]
Your Reticular Activating System acts as a heat seeking missile which allows your subconscious mind to work on your goal whether you realize it or not. Write your Goals on paper bridges the gap between your imagination and the real world. As you create and advance your plan it takes your ideas from the intangible [...]
From the moment you wake up to the moment your eyes close at night, most of your thoughts, words and actions are habitual. Once you have identified your dominant habits, identify the source of those habits. Most of your habits were programmed into you at a very early age without you even realizing it. Many of your habits come from observing your dominant parent or caregiver. If you are habitually late, perhaps this trait was modeled for you by someone you admire. Not always but often enough. From the brand of car you drive to the brands of food you purchase, many of these habits were modeled for you and you practice them subconsciously.
One of the most common complaints today is overwhelm. In a world where information overload is a daily occurrence, the solution to overcoming overwhelm lies in knowing which information and which opportunities truly matter. And you cannot know the answer to that until you examine your values and determine your priorities in life.
You need to learn The Priority Principle. The Priority Principle means knowing your values & priorities & arranging your life so that you spend your time, energy and money on what matters. It means you qualify each Goal and action by ranking the order of importance in advance. In a world where your potential is infinite, but your time is limited to 24 hours each day, the only way to navigate intelligently through life is to know what is most important to you and then act accordingly. Only when you have taken the time to examine your values and priorities carefully, can you know which opportunities, people, inputs and actions align with them.

In the November 6th Lesson of Goal University, we examined how to create Success Systems for tracking your top Goals. The more meaningful your Goal is, the more essential it is to track your progress. You can’t improve what you don’t measure. There are multiple benefits of measuring your results from the beginning of any [...]
The most precious and valuable resource today is not real estate, gold or sex. It is not even oil or gasoline. The most precious and valuable resource is time. Time is more valuable than money. You can make more money, but you cannot make more time. Time is perishable, and the decisions you make about [...]
Much has been said about the high cost of gossip in the workplace in recent days. Employees want colleagues to clean up their act in the workplace, including cutting down on idle chitchat, washing their own dirty dishes and be better at managing their time. In a pet peeves-themed survey released recently by Randstad USA, [...]

You’ve defined your Goal, identified your key strategies, created an action plan and have started to put it into action. What’s next? As you proceed, it is important to measure your results and track your progress (or lack of it). This is the least exciting part of the journey of any Goal, but I [...]
This is remarkable. This kind of climb requires 100% focus and concentration. I love the point when he says, “it’s either do or not do.” [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McHosr_98r0]
