The Top 7 Benefits of Writing Down Your Goals

How Technology Frames the Best Version of Yourself

How to become your best selfOver the years, there’s been a lot of talk about finding your “best self.” It’s always spoken of as if the best you is out there somewhere, hiding in a different job or waiting around the corner for some life-changing experience.

We Need to Learn to Say No

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m rubbish at saying no.

There I was, sitting at my desk, minding my own business, when a colleague telephoned and asked me to get involved in a new project she wants to get off the ground and I found myself getting all caught up in her enthusiasm and thinking “Sure, why the heck not?” and before the call had ended, I found myself agreeing to get involved, without giving any thought whatsoever to the implications.

A study by the University of Southern California revealed that if you live in a metropolitan area and drive 12,000 miles a year you can acquire the equivalent of two years of college education in three years’ time by listening to educational information in your car. Since the average American adult spends from two hundred to seven hundred hours each year in an automobile, this is good news.

6 Steps to a Great Work-Life Balance

6 steps to work life balanceWe hear it over and over again: “Success requires sacrifice. You can’t have it all”.

If you want to be successful with your business or career, you will have to buckle down and get ready to pay a steep price in your personal life.

I know this because I searched the globe for them. I wrote a book about what they can teach us – and this is how I have chosen to live my own life.
