    Have you been struggling to figure out what your life passion might be? I know how frustrating that struggle is. In fact, I allowed frustration to infect my attitude during my life passion search.  I put my happiness on hold because I felt so passionless. But you don’t have to do that. As frustrating as it is to… Continue Reading… The post 5 Things To Be Passionate About Right Now appeared first on Live Bold and Bloom.

    1) "I'm too busy." To put it bluntly, busy is bullshit. Everybody is busy today. If you really want something, you absolutely will make time for it no matter what. On the flip side, if somebody constantly says he's too busy for you, you may want to re-evaluate your relationship with that person. They don't think you're that important. Hence, get rid of them and start surrounding yourself with better people in life. 2) "I feel uninspired at this moment." Here's something to think about: "Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and do the work." - Chuck Close. If you constantly…

  • 3 Ways To Win with Weaknesses

    Brenda Corbett
    31 Jul 2015 | 9:49 pm
    Weaknesses. We all have them. We all talk about them, and we all work on them. Weaknesses are a reflection of something that blocks your internal motivator – your Why It Matters. Unique to you, your Why It Matters is the driving force behind what you do. It is at your center, your core. Your weaknesses typically show up when you are unable to satisfy, fulfill or realize your Why It Matters – it’s been thwarted or threatened. If you can figure out when a weakness first appears, then you can identify the threat and fix it. For example, Adam Levine is a get-it-done kind of guy. He is…
  • Overcoming Fear – 6 Steps that will Change Your life!

    Julie Ellis
    31 Jul 2015 | 9:19 am
    Fear can be paralyzing. Fear can also be motivating. The key to overcoming fear is to ultimately see it as an opportunity, and once you are able to do that, your fear no longer has control over your thought or your action. It is freedom that is truly life changing. While many studies try to enumerate the most common fears people have, they tend to identify those that only grip us occasionally – spiders when we see one or fear one is near, heights when we have to climb or ride high. Sometimes, however, we have deep-seated fears that seem to be with us rather consistently, that have nothing…

    30 Jul 2015 | 9:38 pm
    Self-belief is one of the most important qualities of a happy and successful person. You can be the most beautiful and intelligent individual, strong athlete or clever entrepreneur, but without self-belief these qualities may never come out to the full extent. Self-belief is the foundation of your success both in life and work. In most cases, self-belief is something that we grow up with, but it doesn’t mean that we cannot develop this sense as adults. The following things can help you do that. Volunteer work Many people prefer not to think about it and not to notice it. However, in any…

    Last week I introduced you to the ultimate business breaker and disrupter. As promised, today I will outline six ways you can consider disrupting yourself and your business. When I think of a company that has repeatedly disrupted itself and as a result has withstood the test of time and continues to thrive to the tune of $33 billion dollars a year 165 years later, American Express comes to mind. American Express was founded as an express shipping company much like FedEx is today. Though it was only supposed to last for 10 years and then be dissolved, it was too profitable. So the…

You will never run out of prospects if you will only ask the person you have just talked to about his relatives, friends, and business associates. Most salespeople do not ask.

    Find tools and ideas you can use to "change your world" every day. It works better than being a go-getter. It is good to be a go-getter. Go-getters take action. They look for opportunities. They create opportunities. They make things happen. She who has a go-getter mindset will sell more than the others who are simply go-takers. Go-takers sell to you their products because they want to take your money. And they do. But you don’t do business with them again. The go-giver also take action and create opportunities. They do more. They ensure that they add great value for every transaction.

The surest way to kill any sales is for you to allow your prospect to gain the impression that the order is of greater importance to you, the salesperson, than it is to him, the buyer. The Filipino word for courting is panunuyo and panliligaw. The first one means that you want to endear yourself to the person. The second means that you intend to confuse, to deceive the other person. The second one is a mistake many salespersons commit. They make extravagant promises. They promise the heavens and the…

She believed that your Barangay has no real power. She is very wrong. She was given an opportunity to ensure that the right persons get the job, but she did not believe any chairperson or kagawad can really make a difference. I wonder how many Comelec commissioners think like her. In 2009, Seth Godin wrote that many non-profits weren’t embracing change. The same is true in government…

    Eric Maisel, PhD is author of The Van Gogh Blues: The Creative Person’s Path Through Depression. In our interview, he addresses some of the meaning and mood issues facing creators, noting that when we consciously make meaning, we improve our lives and mental health. Q: The kinds of anxiety we call stage fright, or fear of the blank canvas (or blank page) — can these be related to meaning issues?

    Creative inspiration and energy can come from many sources, but the most important source is us – our own abilities, thoughts and feelings, including the inner stuff we may not want to look at because we think it is “immoral” or “sick” or otherwise “bad.” Artists, of course, realize that it is not only okay to look into our hidden inner selves, but that doing so can reveal creative material and insights.

Go to the store and look at the nutrition facts label on a loaf of whole grain bread or whole grain pasta. See any vitamins and minerals listed on there? What does the label say about the amounts of vitamins and minerals in those items? And fiber? The fiber in whole grains is mostly insoluble. That means that the body cannot use it. Insoluble fiber is also known as cellulose. You know, like, cardboard and wood. This is not to…

  • High Interest Loan Alternatives

    20 Jul 2015 | 4:51 pm
    Payday loans are the most expensive personal loans you can get, some companies charging as much as 400% APR (annual percentage rate) on their loans. Even in areas where payday loans are regulated, some micro-lenders get around these regulations by making subtle changes to their products – smoke and mirrors. Ensure you know the entire cost of any loan before you agree to their terms and consider some of the alternative funding below instead of payday loans. Cost of a Payday Loan The payday loan industry has no shortage of horror stories and negative publicity. While these loans may have a…
  • Lower Down Payment Help for Low Income First Time Home Buyers

    20 Jul 2015 | 4:45 pm
    The expenses of buying a home can quickly mount up. Besides working out what your monthly payments will be, there are many other costs of home ownership and they include the down payment and closing costs, not to mention insurances and property tax. Even if it is possible to make the mortgage payments, the up-front expenses of your down payment and closing costs might just be enough to make you think that first home ownership is beyond your reach. Fortunately, that isn’t necessarily so as there is help available. Local Government Assistance Some communities offer assistance to low income…
  • How Quick Can you Get a Loan?

    19 Jul 2015 | 6:41 am
    When you are looking for money, it is often all about how fast can you get the money. However, there are different types of loans and the type often determines how long it takes to be approved. If you are looking for a loan, you want to make sure you know what type to apply for, and what the terms are so that you do not end up damaging your credit. Student Loans If you are looking at needing money so you can continue your education, you will want to apply for student loans. You can find student loans offered by private lenders or by the federal government. Talk to your local bank to see what…
  • Make The Home Buying Process a Bit Easier

    26 Jun 2015 | 4:30 pm
    Buying a home can be both difficult and stressful. The day I took the money out of the bank for a down payment on my first house was probably the most nerve wracking day of my life. I can’t think of a time when I have ever written such a large check for anything. Though I was fortunate to live in a mid-west city where real estate was affordable and priced to sell. It didn’t hurt to buy during the recession either. Fast forward several years later and real estate is starting to climb back to the values of the old days. The redeeming factor is that interest rates are still at an all…
  • How to Go from a Saver to a Spender in Retirement

    19 Jun 2015 | 12:00 am
    I am a lifelong saver! I will retire in one to two years and everything changes! I have multiple sources of income and enough investments to keep my wife and I very comfortable for more than thirty years. Comfortable is a subjective word, but my mortgage will be paid off and I have no debt. So what is the problem? I have to change  my habits and learn how to spend instead of save. After so many years, stopping work is just one of the challenges you go through as you enter retirement. You can prepare for it in a number of ways, save, invest and work hard to achieve the magic number you need…

For some time now, Valerie has been the unofficial advisor/emotional support to the Creative Director here at Puttylike (i.e. me).

  • The Joy and Horror of Being Really Really Busy

    23 Jul 2015 | 4:00 am
    Being busy is not a novel concept for most multipotentialites. I often have to say no to projects, or make plans to hang out with someone weeks out. Sometimes I take 10+ days to email people back (but I always respond). Busyness is just part of the game, and usually my productivity strategies help me manage it pretty effectively. But with our recent growth here on Puttylike, events like WDS, polishing up my book to pitch to literary agents, launching the PuttyRetreat, and volunteering at Rock and Roll Camp for Girls (which I’m LOVING), I’ve been working harder than ever…

    Stephen Guise

    Efficiency is meaningless on its own. Literally meaningless. What if I told you that I am the most efficient rice organizer you’ve ever seen? Oh yeah. Give me a full bag of rice, and I’ll line up the grains in four hundred symmetrical rows. I can organize the full bag like this in only three minutes because I know how to efficiently distribute the rice without wasting any time or movement.  But wait… After such masterful efficiency, all I have is table covered in rice. That’s not very useful to me or anyone else, showing that efficiency alone matters very…

One of my favorite metaphors for life is a greyhound dog race: the dogs run at 39 MPH trying to catch a mechanical rabbit that is always just ahead of them. Think about this as a metaphor for our lives and the goals we set: it’s an interesting, slightly depressing, and eerily accurate depiction of what we do. We strive to reach goals, but even as we reach one, there’s always another. We’ll never 100% complete our potential. We’ll…

It hurts consumers, authors, and generally, the entire industry loses trust because of a few bad apples. Fortunately for me, my first published book, Mini Habits, has been very successful. Unfortunately, it made me a target. I thought that if I were a target, I would receive some malicious 1-star review from competitors. And well, that actually did happen once.

    Simple Things In Life Are Best Many people believe that once we are more successful financially and can splurge on expensive things, we will be living better.  That is not always the case as sometimes it’s the simple things in life which are the best.  As you know, many rich and famous celebrities are still not happy with their lives.  Unfortunately, many of these cases end up in disasters.

  • Leadership: Don't Ask... Tell! -- Douglas E Castle

    5 Jun 2015 | 11:27 am
    If you are a leader (or are aspiring to become one), you'll need to manage people efficiently and effectively. This involves "framing" yourself as a commander instead of as a peer or as a mere moderator. One of the ways that a leader stands out from the crowd is that he or she does not make requests by asking -- he or she makes requests which are always worded as orders.Instead of asking "Would you do this for me?", a leader who is truly in the proper posture of command will tell a subordinate "I need for you to do this for me. Your time frame to complete this is three business days, starting…

To be a leader, you must make those around you feel, beyond a doubt, that you are fully in command and control. You must get people's attention, keep their attention and have them aligned to follow your orders or instructions.Command Presence is essentially presenting yourself as someone in authority, trusted and respected. This is partially done through the message conveyed by how you LOOK, how you CARRY YOURSELF, how you…

Looking through the drafts folder, I found this post on nerdy tracking tools and thought it was worth sharing. This post looks at 5 of the gadgets and health tracking tools I use to follow my progress. My current health goals In plain-speak, my health and wellness goals, the things I try to tell myself each day are that: I want to feel better about my body. I want to tone away some flab. I want…
  • Tips: 3 useful Instagram tools

    Mark Fitzpatrick
    20 May 2012 | 12:21 am
    Taking a slight departure from the goal-related ground I normally cover, I wanted to write a mini post about some useful Instagram tools I’ve recently discovered which can extend the usefulness of the social-photo app of the moment. At the beginning of 2012, I decided to start using Instagram again, partly as a challenge to myself to generate imagery for the front page of my blog, rather than pinching odds and ends from around the interwebs. I’ve since really fallen back in love with Instagram and find myself checking the long feed of interesting folks I follow every day,…

    I have promised for some time to write a post about some super geek bloggers: The inspiring geeks-with-goals I’ve discovered about the interwebs. Here’s a post about two of those geeks, who are both kicking amazing goals in their lives and helping others to do the same and they are using some fundamentally nerdy tools and systems to do so. I consider both a Super Geek Blogger and I think you might find their work interesting. Now, I don’t know either of these chaps personally and I’m not 100% sure they would be comfortable with being labelled a Super Geek. So  on the…

    Sometimes life takes a completely different turn that we had anticipated or even planned, and the immediate reaction from our human perspective is to go “oh, no, this can’t be happening, what do I do now?”.

    Last week, I got a somewhat nasty comment from a blog visitor calling me a “false prophet,” saying I’m “shepherding the meek,” and to “lead [him] or get out of [his] way.” It inspired me to create a video on how to deal with negative criticism, because let’s face it — no matter what you do in life, you are bound to face negative criticism from others.

    “When our personal inner vision is sharp and balanced, it awakens our ability to look at life with a creative and positive point of view. It stimulates our thirst for knowledge and education in every possible way.” – Sonia Choquette What is intuition? It’s the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. Albert Einstein said, “The only real valuable thing is intuition” — and all you have to do is flip the switch to not only get clarity, but gain incredible insights on improving every aspect of your life.

    Besides being a personal growth enthusiast I have also read and studied psychology for over 15 years. Psychology in a nutshell is about how you think and what pictures you use in your mind to get you to act or not to act. Psychology can be used effectively or ineffectively. Advertisers know this and that is why they often hire people who know and understand human behavior to get people to buy their products and or services. But what if I could introduce you to someone who came from a humble background and is now the foremost expert on the topic of creative visualization to create the life and…

    If you’ve ever studied chakras or energetic frequencies, you’re probably well aware that we all have a personal energetic ecosystem. Your chakras determine the way you flow energy in your body. Whenever I am feeling sluggish and tired I know the problem is not a lack of energy, it is a problem with my chakras being closed and or restricted. There is only one energy and we have more than enough to do the things we want and need to do. The challenge occurs when we mentally block the energy and or if we have been doing things that we would rather not be doing. This is why play is so…

    20 Jul 2015 | 2:03 pm
    If you choose to become wealthy – inevitably – you will have to engage with people. Why – because you buy from people. You sell to people. You can work with or for people; and people can work for you, with you, or against you. No matter where you work – or what you do – your ability to make more money will always be linked to your ability to work better with people. People can help you make more money (or help you lose money fast) – but only if you know how to work with them. If you treat them poorly, inevitably, you will lose money. If you treat them well, inevitably, you will…

    Understanding how your mind works is one of the key secrets to wealth because your mind is - quite literally – in charge. It can either run you - or ruin you. Do you work it - or does it work you? More than likely – it is currently running you because it knows how to manipulate you… But if you know how your mind works, you can use this information to wilfully influence your behaviour in the way that you choose! In the last article, we showed you how your mind works logically. This article will focus on how your mind works biologically, or chemically.

    The physical brain is the most complex and amazing organ in the human body. It does all kinds of amazing things for you, like regulating your breathing, maintaining your bodily functions, and generally - keeping you alive. Your mind, however, does things to you – like keeping you stuck! The reason for this is simple – you don’t know how it works. Just like with investing, relationships, money or business, if you don’t know how things work – it will likely get you into trouble. At the very least you will be learning things the hard way!

    As the infamous Jim Rohn used to say: "You don't get paid for having a job. You get paid for the value you are adding at your job." If you got paid just for having a job, all you would have to do was to show up. But that is certainly not the case, and definitely not sustainable... I don't know anyone or any industry who loves to pay people just for showing up. You have to be adding value. You have to be bringing something of value to the transaction. You have to contribute something in exchange for money.

    Leave it to a power outage to shed light on an all-too-common writing mistake. Here’s the situation. On July 17, the Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers attempted to play a baseball game. After three power outages (see video) delayed the game over two hours, league officials chose to suspend the action and resume play the following day. (The Nationals ultimately won the game 5-3.) After the game was postponed, Nationals pitcher Jordan Zimmermann told the Associated Press, “I’ve never seen anything like it before.” Then another Nationals player jumped on…

We plopped down in front of the TV and absorbed every bit of knowledge dispensed by the “Sesame Street” gang.

They’re bonafide brands with images to uphold and Twitter audiences to entertain. That’s why Karl-Anthony Towns, the #1 overall draft pick, wore a suit for the draft made of a rare fabric. How rare? Towns claims there’s only eight meters of the fabric in the world — and his suit used two and a half of it. Right on cue, Towns (second from the right) posted a photo on Twitter in the custom jacket. To my family &…

    Divorce was once a rare occurrence but today unfortunately has become a commonplace thing. This very clearly indicates that many couples today are letting negativity and conflicts overpower their bond and love for each other. Disagreements and conflicts take place in almost every relationship but wiser couples get away with them, while the not so wiser ones let the anger build up to a level when differences between them grow into irreconcilable differences. Why let such a thing happen, when you had married your mate to spend your entire life with and not to move out of it in the middle. If…

    Addiction is a serious and complicated disease that affects millions of Americans of all ages. This disease destroys the physical and emotional health of the addict, affects every aspect of his or her life, and puts all personal relationships at risk. In many cases, men are able to hide their addiction problems longer than women can. Perhaps this is due to the fact that men are not as comfortable sharing their feelings and problems, or they’re simply unable to face the issue and denial becomes the primary response. This can make it doubly hard for men with addiction to ask for the help…

One problem leads to another, the issues start to pile up, until it feels like you’re in over your head.

When you don’t get proper nutrients, there are consequences – one of which is negative effects on your mood and the way you feel. Besides feeling sluggish after overeating or loading up on sugars or unhealthy fats, you probably feel guilty. There’s a very obvious connection between the foods you eat and the way you feel. But there’s also something deeper at play. Some people eat when they feel sad, depressed or lonely. But others feeling the same way eat nothing…

    Drying Rack. Words. Cars. Roasting Veggies. Fires. Life. It is the space in the drying rack that allows the air to circulate and allows the clothes to dry. It is the space between letters that allow us to read the word and the space between words that create the phrase. It is the space between cars that allow traffic to keep moving. It is the space between veggies on a baking sheet that allows them to roast vs. steam.   The poet Judy Brown reminds us that what makes a fire burn is not just the logs but the space that exists between the logs.

Eyes are usually lit up with absolute certainty that what they applied and what they learned really did work, and more often than not, they want to share the applied knowledge with the audience.

While the answer is most definitely yes; there are concepts and ideas that I strongly believe allow me to live a happier and more successful life, I also believe rules are meant to be broken. And they’re not forever. A rule that may inspire and enlighten me now, may no longer serve me in the future. So my take on it is this; have rules if they are useful but be careful they don’t end up controlling you or limiting you in any way. After all you’re the one who empowered these ‘rules’ in…

    14 Jul 2015 | 1:01 pm
    One of the greatest marks of leadership is humility. The character to accept constructive criticism, to serve others, and respect teammates. This is the same character that allows true leaders to accept mistakes, apologize, give recognition where it is due, and share the glory with the team. Being humble enough to take feedback from admirers and critics is key to the growth of a leader. This article seeks to promote two types of feedback that a leader can use to reach her full potential. The article answers these questions;   Why should the leader ask for feedback? How should the leader…

    One of the TV shows I grew up with was called Fantasy Island. Has anyone ever pointed to the sky and said, “De plane! De plane!”? If so, they were mimicking the most famous yet least important part of the show – namely, Tattoo pointing to the twin-engine floatplane about to arrive with another batch of unsuspecting fantasy-seekers. The premise of the show was pretty simple: Guests would come to the island having laid out major money for their fantasy to come true. And over the ensuing weekend, it would.

With the benefit of hindsight, I now fully understand that all I was doing was revealing how afraid I was that things wouldn’t be good enough.  I was worried that people would judge my standards as being too low if I allowed something to be called ‘finished’ when it wasn’t perfect.

    Kelli Cooper
    28 Jul 2015 | 11:46 pm
    When it comes to the law of attraction, you hear a lot about visualizing. Often times, it is almost as if law of attraction and visualizing become synonymous. But it is important to remember that the law of attraction is not a tool; it is not something you can ‘use.’ Harnessing its power is all about what you are ‘being.’ Not what you are doing. It is a way of explaining how reality is created, and why what happens happens, both in an individual’s life, and our collective experience as a whole. It is kind of like gravity—you aren’t ‘using’ it,…

    The law of attraction is not some new concept that was invented by the people who wrote The Secret. The idea our inner world influences our external experience was discussed long before this. There were many books that discussed the law of attraction (thought it wasn’t always referred to by this name) that date back to the early 1900’s. There are probably some that are even older…don’t feel like Googling that right now to confirm. The reason it is so much more well-known now, is because our overall consciousness is expanding, and more and more people are starting to…

But, that doesn’t mean there aren’t indicators your energy is indeed changing, and you are aligning more closely with what you want.

Inspiration comes from many sources… the work you do, the people you know, the places you see, the videos you watch, the paintings you admire, and the music you hear. One often forgotten source is the poetry of the past and present.  For centuries, thoughtful writers have used the written language in an attempt to capture emotions and intangible concepts such as beauty, sadness, love, connection, joy, intimacy, and inspiration.

That’s right, some of the wealthiest and most accomplished people believe they had left a lot on the table because their expectations weren’t high enough.

Inspiration for these sweet and salty bars came from the recipe developed by Imperial Powdered Sugar found here.    A Great Dessert Varies Texture & Flavor A truly satisfying dessert must have the perfect balance…
  • Prenatal DHA: It’s Just as Important as Your Prenatal Vitamin

    This article provides the opportunity to win Nordic Natural’s Prenatal DHA! (Scroll to the bottom for details.) What Every Mom Needs to Know About DHA One of the most important reasons to take a multivitamin early in pregnancy is to ensure adequate intake of folic acid. In 1996, the FDA felt it was so important, that they stepped in and required most grains to be fortified with the vitamin (among others). Now, most breakfast cereals contain the full amount of folate needed in a single serving. (1) Not to undermine the importance of the prenatal vitamin (as it is…
  • How to Cook Chicken Breast Better Than The Rest: A Step By Step Image Tutorial

    19 Jun 2015 | 9:28 pm
    The Best Way to Cook Chicken Breast There is beauty in simplicity. A perfectly cooked chicken breast can top a good salad and make it great. It can stand alone on the plate, leaving you wanting more. Used as the base of another recipe, better chicken means a better dish. Cooking perfect chicken may seem easy but it’s deceivingly difficult…if you aren’t using the right method.  Chicken breast that is perfectly cooked has a beautiful brown crust, is seasoned perfectly, and has a juicy, tender middle. Can you say all that about your chicken? If not, you may wish to…

    The post Fuck Your Feelings & Fuck Your Comfort – Earn Your Personal Freedom By Daring To Be YOU appeared first on Liberty Frontier. Here’s the thing about gaining personal freedom; it’s hard work. It’s uncomfortable. And a lot of people aren’t willing to do the work it takes. You’ve got to free your mind, your body, your finances, your relationships. You have to be honest with yourself about who you are, what you want, and why you react to things the way you do. You have to work through the dark and horrible things in your soul. All of that takes a…

    The post Why Building Your Body Might Be The Best Thing You Do All Year appeared first on Liberty Frontier. Fitness has become fashionable. It would be easy to view this trend through square hipster lenses, and scoff at people jumping on the bandwagon. But fitness is one of the most beneficial things anyone can pursue in life. Men (and women), let me tell you this: You are limiting your life in fundamental ways if you do not develop your body. This truth was brought home to me very recently; I performed a consultation for a gentleman in his mid 70s looking for some personal training. His…

And if you are not where you want to be right now, then I have news; your plan is going to fail. Whether that is good or bad news is up to you. The thing about plans though, is that they’re kind of meant to fail. Indeed, the very concept of failing is only meaningful in relation to a plan. Without a plan, how do you even know you’ve failed? It’s a matter of when, not if. When your plan fails, what are you…

Tales From Morocco is a series of stories and lessons I discovered from just two weeks in this beautiful country. Despite being “almost Western”, things are different there. Very different. But humans are the same the world over,  and seeing the same things in a different setting has a way of really marking them out. Marrakech is an incredible, vibrant city. It is full of noise, light, colour and smells and feels almost hyper-real. Everywhere is hued in blue-orange, so that…

    Motivational quotes are huge right now. I can’t seem to listen to a podcast, turn on the TV, or talk with friends, without hearing a famous motivational quote of some kind. I love them more than anyone, trust me I do. I am always hearing new quotes, or old ones brought to the front of people’s’ minds. It’s great. So what is it people like about hearing these quotes?

    ENFJ’s a fully of fun, passion, and charisma. They gravitate into leadership positions, and do very well leading others in an enthusiastic and helpful manner. They make up around 2% of the population. Often in the form of teachers, coaches, politicians, and other public figures. They are great at reaching out to others. Often connecting on emotional or personal level. Always for the reason of doing good. ENFJ’s have a natural and real confidence.

    There is always a lot of discussion around introverts in seems. People are fascinated by other who enjoy being left alone. People who are not introverted are always trying to ‘help’ their introverted friends. They feel like they are missing out on all the fun stuff extroverts get to do. But it’s not as simple as that. Introverts are perfectly happy being alone. That’s why they are introverts. I never try and change my friends who have personalities like this. Sure, I always invite and include them the same way I do anyone. But I completely understand when they prefer…

    Phil Ashton

    Risk and taking risks is something that’s tough to summarize. The word ‘risk’ means something very different to each and every one of us. We all have our own natural level of risk, and we all are willing to take different amounts of risk. We are all faced by decisions that involve risk. From small daily decisions carrying little risk that may or may not affect our day. To large life decisions carry a substantial amount of risk. Being able to calculate risk and make the best of every decision is a skill in itself, and not something I will be going into great detail here.

Diets, personal trainers, new food fads, pills, you name it, and it’s being advertised and sold. I have had my own weight fluctuations over the years. I’m happy to say I’m at my ideal weight now, and find it easy to maintain. It wasn’t always easy though. The temptation of different foods, lack of time to prepare healthy meals, I had all the excuses. I realized a long time ago, it’s not just about hunger. Ease of access, or any of the other excuses.

  • Focusing Your Task List

    Scott Nesbitt
    28 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    If you're like many people, you probably have a long list of things that you need to do (or think that you need to do). I've seen people with to-do lists that are a page or two long, and only getting longer. It's daunting when you're faced with a mound of tasks like that. It can be paralyzing. You don't know where to begin. The sheer amount of work in front of you is overwhelming. So much so that you shut down and procrastinate. With a little planning, you can turn that mountain into an ant hill. Here are some tips that can help you do that. Set Priorities Not all tasks…
  • Exercising When Your Time is Limited

    21 Jul 2015 | 5:00 am
    Most of us lead busy lives. Some, busier than others. And with long commutes, personal and family obligations, and the need to sleep once in a while we don't always have the time to do the things that we want to do. Often, exercise is something that gets put off. Which is unfortunate, because mental well being goes hand-in-hand with physical health. A sound mind in a sound body and all that. Even if your time is limited, you can still get in some exercise and it can be fairly intense. You don't need a gym membership or any equipment to do it. Here's a look at how. Before You Begin…

    Over the years, I've been accused of hating or being afraid of GTD (a popular method of productivity created by David Allen). Both those accusations are far, far from the truth. I admit that I'm cool towards GTD. Very cool. Why? GTD isn't for me. And it wasn't a snap reaction, either. A few years ago, I made a stab at rebooting my system of productivity. At that time a few friends, and a bunch of people online, were singing the praises of GTD. While I don't usually go with the crowd, some of the cheerleaders were people whose opinions I respected (and still do). So, I…

     Suggest to most people that they stop watching, reading or just consuming news in general and the reaction ranges from confusion to abject horror. The concept of news has been a sacred cow since TV entered the world because to be well informed, learned and intelligent meant watching the news and being able to discuss what was going on in the world. In the last decade, however, we have since moved into the digital, 24/7 news era where “well informed” people not only watch the news, but watch it on multiple channels, they read multiple publications and maybe even listen to a podcast…

It will be because they went to a shitty school when they were young. It will be because they don’t have the education to get a better job. It will be because they live in the wrong area.
