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 [...]
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.

Phyllis Apple, 84 year old owner of a thriving PR firm Boomers are Booming and apparently 80 is the new 40. Scientists still cannot agree whether the average human life span will be 85 or 100 or 150, but one thing is for certain, the days of getting a “good job” and working there [...]

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 [...]
“We only regard those unions as real examples of love and real marriages in which a fixed and unalterable decision has been taken. If men or women contemplate an escape, they do not collect all their powers for the task. In none of the serious and important tasks of life do we arrange such a [...]
