Are Your Dreams Too Big?

  One question I get asked a lot is how to set the right goals. People worry that they aren’t being realistic when they let themselves dream or that they might be setting goals that are way too big to achieve – all of which begs the question, “What dreams are too big to be realistic?” As with most things, the answer to this question comes down to how important your dream is to you. The bigger the dream, the more dedication it may take. Does that keep you from setting big goals or inspire you to ...

Watch Where You're Going

“If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.”   ~ The Cheshire Cat, Alice in Wonderland Do you know where you’re going?  And do you keep your eye on that destination at all times? If you have a crystal clear 12-month vision for your life, then give yourself a great big pat on the back because you're a member of a very small elite group. Most people have lots of wishes: "I wish I had more money," "I wish I could lose weight," "I wish business was better," – or they have a ...

Demonstrate Commitment

Commitment is a powerful force that can change the course of your life.  It has mine. Without demonstrating you are serious by taking a step in the direction of what you want, that force can just slip away.  That first step, no matter how fearful it may be, is the act of claiming your power.  And the Universe loves nothing more than to support you in being the powerful person you are....

Gold Time - an end to overwhelm!

  Gold Time is probably the most ‘used-but-misused’ of the fundamental principles underpinning the Best Year Yet® system. Thousands of us say we practice Gold Time, but in reality few of us do it really well, all of the time. Of the hundreds of executives I’ve coached over the last 15 years, individually or in teams, the really impressive ones have, without exception, become Masters of Gold Time. Their secret is investing time in attending to the topics that matter in the long run....

What are your Top Ten Goals?

What you Focus on is What You Get! In this world of distractions, it’s too easy to lose our focus.  When this happens we may be getting things done, but we’re really not accomplishing anything.  In these times of longer and longer TO DO lists and the endless fascinations of voicemail, email, and texting we can lose our way.  The dreams that matter and the determination to live a life that shows the person we want to be are lost in the shuffle of a busy, busy life....

Transforming Your Performance – and Your Life

 “How’d you do last year?” people ask. We think about it and we casually answer with what is fresh in our minds - the last few months or weeks or days. 2009 was a tough year for many: job losses, health problems, family issues, or other disappointments. Yet for some, the year was good. despite the surrounding conditions. What makes the difference in performance and achievement? How can we do better while all about us seems to be unstable or even crumbling?...

How Can We Stop Feeling Overwhelmed?

I find myself in a lot of conversations lately about how busy and frustrated people are. Here are some typical comments: “With all our wonderful technology, designed to make it all so much easier, I just feel more overwhelmed instead of more productive!” “I can’t figure out how to make things happen that just don’t happen.” “I try so hard to stick to my priorities, but the day just takes over and I don’t get to them.”...

Your New Year Declaration

  I’m breathing the fresh air of a new month, a New Year, and yes, a new decade.  And I’ve made a declaration that is already acting as a powerful catalyst in making great things happen this year.  This week I invite you to join me in declaring your intent for the New Year. There is something powerful and empowering about making a declaration. Think the Declaration of Independence…”We hold these truths to be self-evident…” It was on that declaration that a nation was founded. In 1962, President ...
