Are You Ready for a Change?

One thing I know for sure is that we are more powerful than we know. We are created from greatness, a source of help greater than ourselves with the strength, courage, and faith to live empowering and fulfilling lives. Yet when we forget this truth we give life a different meaning, one of struggle, hardship, limitation and uncertainty.  Fortunately, there is good news.

How I Stopped Micromanaging Myself

  I was "The King of To-Do Lists". Back in the 80’s when there were no electronic devices, a student at the university told me, “You are my role model for being well organized. How do you plan your exams?“ He seemed to be impressed by my bulky personal management notebook. At the same time I was asked by others to organize training sessions on self-management.
