Your Productivity Unleashed – What a Gen X and Baby Boomer Have Discovered

Your Productivity Unleashed – What a Gen X and Baby Boomer Have Discovered I have been in business many years and have used a variety of methods to set and achieve goals for every area of my life each year. I found over the past few years, that the traditional methods I had used no longer worked. Then, in December 2016, I found a program developed by Michael Hyatt (Baby Boomer), whose program is titled “5 Days to Your Best Year Ever”. His passion, he says, is creating a step by step guide for anyone with something to say or.

Growth In Life Is A Choice

  “Life is change.  Growth is Optional.  Choose Wisely.” says Karen Kaiser Clark, world-renowned lecturer, consultant, educator and author.  For those who struggle, at least occasionally, with change, Karen’s advice may have a bit of a sting in it.  Yet, when you reflect on the difficult circumstances in your life, some provoking life-altering change, you begin to see when, where and how you changed as the result.  What lessons did you learn and how did you choose to share the wisdom you gained? If you are in corporate America and have been there over ten years, you have seen tumultuous.

Facing Trouble

In Lewis Timberlake’s book, First Thing Every Morning, he talks about trouble and how to deal with it effectively. He quotes Michael Jordan: “If it turns out that my best wasn’t good enough, at least I won’t look back and say that I was afraid to try; failure makes me work even harder”. This quote reminds me of ‘mental muscle’, where what you think over time can determine how you act. So, if your first instinct is negative (and I have been guilty), your actions will usually follow the same pattern. How do you change it? From my perspective, it.

Will Rogers’ Formula for Success

“In order to succeed, you must know what you are doing, like what you are doing and believe in what you are doing.” – Will Rogers.  For those who may not know him, Will Rogers was an American cowboy, newspaper columnist, stage and motion picture actor, and humorist.  He certainly was not afraid to try new things and gave us his wisdom in simple, direct terms. His advice on success is no exception.  Knowing what you are doing says you have a specific goal in mind – at this point, you don’t have to know how you are going to.

Consistency in Today’s World?

Consistency can be defined as adherence to the same principles, course, etc. Why is this concept so hard for us to grasp, much less maintain?  From my perspective, it involves a number of factors – age, attitude, persistence, self-discipline, responsibility, and lifestyle, to name a few. As with other things, it can lead to boredom – when practiced in the extreme. But, for now, let’s just assume we need more of it – not less. We are told it is a key tool in training children and animals – so they know what to expect, each and every time. That.

Perfection – A Two-Edged Sword!

Perfection – friend or enemy? On one hand, striving for improvement, to make something better, more skilled, more accurate, is worthwhile. On the other hand, striving for perfection can be crippling and defeating. For example, if you are in a profession that uses Malcolm Baldridge as the pinnacle of achievement, and you use it as a guideline to mark improvements in your work patterns and results, your striving for perfection can be the right course of action. If, however, you say that, after trying, you cannot achieve perfect results, and give up, you have allowed perfection to block constructive action..
