    The mind can be like a prison, trapping you with incessant and noisy thoughts, many of which serve no useful purpose and some of which are actually quite limiting. Whenever your mind is left unmanaged, it will run riot in this way, resulting in less mental clarity and peace, and more stress and confusion. Conversely though, your mind can also liberate you once you learn how to manage it. To improve your mental clarity and overall effectiveness in any area of life, you can counter the effects of a noisy, riotous mind with these 3 simple techniques below. These are based on…
  • Is Your Inner Chatterbox Running Your Life?

    The Start of Happiness
    Megan Forrest
    31 Aug 2015 | 5:13 am
     “Comparison is truly the thief of joy.” -Chris Guillebeau   Inside each of our heads lives a chatterbox that runs all day long. It reminds us of everything we’ve ever done wrong, makes negative assumptions about what everyone else thinks of us, and tells us that we simply don’t measure up. It’s sneaky and quiet, but powerful. When I was first introduced to my inner chatterbox, I was 22 years old. I was sitting in an AA meeting, and this wonderful wise old man told me I have a voice in my head that never stops – a little chatterbox. He told me to practice listening for it,…

    “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. We all use our intuition…

  • 5 Strategies for Choosing Long-term Gain over Short-term Pain-Avoidance

    Yonason Goldson
    2 Sep 2015 | 10:57 pm
    There are two things that parents of small children can’t stand.  One is a child making noise when we’re trying to get work done.  The other is a child making no noise at all. Because if they’re not making noise, they’re usually getting into trouble. So consider this scenario:  you run to see what your too-quiet two year old has gotten into and find him playing with the snow-globe your sister brought back from her trip to Switzerland last year.  Since this is not the best toy for a toddler, you smile at your child and gently take the snow-globe out of his hands. That’s when the…

    You're not like everyone else. They will wait until the 1st of January to make a New Year's Resolution, that they'll probably break within a few week's time, a few months at the very most. You're not going to wait til then and want to make a head start right now. Unfortunately, you only have 24 hours in a day and a finite amount of energy as well. You're determined. You want change. You don't want to give up. That's why you shouldn't put in more effort to stick to your habits. That's right, you shouldn't put in more effort, that's not a typo.

    Adam Hughes
    31 Aug 2015 | 9:05 am
    As an adult living and working in the 21st century, you're bombarded with a constant crush of escalating demands. Your boss wants you to do more at work, your spouse wants you to do more at home, and your kids need you to give more of yourself. More, more, more! Most of us feel an obligation to heed this call for excess and find ourselves buried at the bottom of an endless to-do list that grows taller every day. It's clear that we need to reduce our commitments -- not likely -- or become more productive. The problem is, even the best task-tracking tools and organization techniques won't…

    Chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide. And more than 75 percent of all physician office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints. Just in case death doesn’t get your attention, stress also makes you fat, old and stupid. Chronic stress affects your brain, suppresses your thyroid, causes blood sugar imbalances, decreases bone density and muscle tissue, raises blood pressure, reduces your immunity and ability to heal, and increases fat deposits around your…

    You look down. Below you is a thin tightrope wire, a mere 2 inches thick. One thousand three hundred and sixty-two feet below that is the unforgiving pavement of the streets of New York City. You see them, busy people rushing off to work, school, home wherever they are heading— as you take your first step across the sky. At first, no one notices you. “Maybe that’s for the better,” you think. “It’d only add to the pressure.” But you thought too soon. A man stops. He looks up and sees you, a speck against the clouds.

Seven-time NBA All-Star, Grant Hill, recalls his first team meeting as a fresh Duke University basketball team recruit in fall of 1990, “It was an awesome day. I remember being excited, anxious and nervous when Coach K walked in. He paused for a moment to make sure that we were all looking him straight in the…

    17 Aug 2015 | 11:58 am
    A product manager does just about anything under the sun to make her product successful. This makes it difficult for new product managers to know what to focus on first.

Making a decision with insufficient data (and tips on sleeping soundly after that.)

There seems to be as many definitions for ‘product management’ as there are roles out there, and a great deal of opinions around what makes someone a good product manager.  At first I found the many ways in which people thought about product management a bit…
  • Focusing on Product Management – how I am planning to develop my product management skills

    21 Mar 2014 | 9:27 pm
    I have always found intrigue in the idea of writing posts for this blog, but the reality is that my focus has jumped around from topic to topic, making the site frustrating to follow.  The main reason this has been the case is a lack of a topic of which I would like to extensively write about and continue to learn and share things. I decided to bring some focus to the blog around the topic of Product Management.  I think it is a intriguing and interesting topic and I recently started more strongly focusing my career on Product Management, at least for the next few years, and there is a ton…
  • Everyday kindness is the true antidote to senseless violence

    18 Apr 2013 | 7:38 am
    My thoughts after the terrible Boston Bombings on Marathon Day, 2013. There are many disheartening news, heart-wrenching stories about civilians getting killed, attacks on innocent people, senseless aggression.  The world, as seen through the lenses of what the news portrays, looks bleak.   Our sense of security proves to be just a creation in our head, quite illusory, and although we must do what we can through legislation to reduce violence and senseless killings, the more powerful antidote to this is to bring out of everyone what truly makes humanity special, our sense of love and…

  • Lease Your Next Car

    29 Aug 2015 | 3:00 am
    After owning my current Ford Explorer for much longer than I expected, and it just being a tick under the eleven year national average age of cars currently on the road, I am definitely going to lease my next car.  By no means would I consider myself vain when it comes to cars, probably just self-conscious I know (my friend who has a similar year F-150 says my car is like a Rolls-Royce compared to his), but let’s put it this way, I would get embarrassed to pull up to the valet line now.  So basically when my wife and I drive we use her new Ford Edge.  I have been technically without a…
  • Negotiate Your Cable Bill Now

    22 Aug 2015 | 1:00 am
    If you think you’re paying too much for cable, you are…but you knew that already.  Notice I said you need to negotiate your cable bill, not cancel.  This is not another article telling you to ditch your cable provider.  Cable is not yet entirely a thing of the past, so I’m not telling you to pick up an HD antenna, a streaming service, and call it a day.  No, the truth is, TV is important in my house, it is something my wife and I enjoy.  I couldn’t imagine life without a DVR, as bad as that sounds.  I’ve had friends that have cancelled cable because it’s too expensive, they…

    If you are looking at your bills and know that your bank account is running dry, you are going to be like many others trying to figure out how to make ends meet. There are loans available for major expenses, but emergencies often leave people only needing a few hundred dollars. When you have an emergency and need money, there are ways to get it. Crowdfunding It used to be that you had only your friends and family to talk to when you needed quick cash. However, crowdfunding now offers the ability to set up donation sites where people can donate money for a cause. These sites allow you to enter…
  • A Credit Card May Not Be For Everyone

    15 Aug 2015 | 9:59 am
    There are financial perks to using your credit card such as rewards dollars/points, building your credit score, and just the mere convenience, but it takes lots of discipline to limit your spending in order to be able to pay the balance each month.  Rolling over your balance to the next month and paying high interest leads to financial downfall.  Memories of only making minimum payments and worrying about when the balance would ever be paid off still haunt me to this day, swearing to never go there again. Budget When you use your debit card you are only spending the amount that you have in…

Sports fans love the challenge that comes with placing bets on MLB games, and much of that is due to the many types of bets available. Here are a few that are most commonly found at betting locations. Over/Unders One of the most common terms found in baseball is over/under. This type of bet has the person placing the bet wagering on the total number of scores made by both teams combined.

If all you know how to do is play on that shiny console your free time options are severely reduced. So how do we start adding to our skill set? Where to start, where to end?

    Note from Emilie: this is the first post by one of our new Staff Writers, Neil Hughes. Neil is a big-hearted, hilarious, and inspiring multipod from the UK, and I couldn’t be more excited to have him on the PuttyTeam. I think you’ll really enjoy this… Several years ago, I went for a walk. Not a fun, leisurely walk. A serious walk. For serious thinking. I was unhappy, but I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong.

  • “I Like Doing Hard Things”

    24 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    I once met someone, a multipotentialite, who had had an intimidatingly impressive career. He had worked as a spy at an organization that is known by its 3-letter acronym, which I was asked not to repeat. He had an MBA and built huge businesses, he scuba dived. He was the kind of person I didn’t meet often, but he was kind and open, and the more he shared, the more curious I became. During our conversation, he said something that stuck with me more than his specific accomplishments. He said: “I like doing hard things.” People often assume that multipotentialites quit when…
  • When NOT to Quit

    17 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    The first year of law school was exciting. It was challenging, interesting, and dramatic. However, by the time my third year rolled around, I was losing interest in law. The dull, corporate classes were making me want to chop my fingers off. It was also becoming clear to me that I didn’t want to pursue a career as a lawyer. I could have dropped out, but I didn’t. Instead, I took the very NON-multipotentialite course of action and stuck it out. I usually encourage multipotentialites to leave projects behind if they’re no longer feeling them, but there are times when not…

  • How to Keep Track of All Your Ideas

    Jo Moore
    3 Aug 2015 | 4:00 am
    If you’re anything like me, you have several exciting ideas a day. Sometimes it’s an idea for a business. Sometimes it’s an idea for a new hobby. Sometimes it’s an idea for a quest or an activity that you’d like to do. Having that many ideas floating around in your head can be quite stressful. Your mind gets full and you worry that you’ll forget all of these great ideas. From time to time, you find yourself with a spare moment and somehow end up bored because you’ve forgotten all the things you wanted to do. Luckily, keeping a record of your ideas is pretty straightforward.

    “Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.” ~ Benjamin Franklin The nature of tomorrow creates a game out of life.  A while back, I wrote about tomorrow. It was not a love note. It was more of a grab-the-pitchfork-and-let’s-take-this-beast-down kind of note. Tomorrow is the day of promises. It’s tied to hope in a delightful sick way. When you’re hopeful for something, you’re looking to the future to provide it. Tomorrow is exciting because, in theory, it could provide all that you hope for.  Let’s take that one step further.

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.

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…

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

    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…

Consequently, we may even procrastinate on making a plan that will help us achieve the success that we dream of.

  • Sometimes It’s Important To Be Selfish

    Maria Erving
    2 Sep 2015 | 10:59 am
    Sometimes it’s very important to take some time off and be alone, to think about things; to ponder, reevaluate and just get deeply in contact with yourself again. It’s vitally important to be “selfish” in that way. Especially if you’re going through a transformational process which many times happens after you have let go [...]The post Sometimes It’s Important To Be Selfish appeared first on Maria Erving.

  • My Definition of SUCCESS

    8 Aug 2015 | 3:32 pm
    Success has a different meaning to each and every individual. I believe it’s important that we take the time to define our own personal definitions of success. If we don’t learn what matters to us as individuals, we’re more likely to shoot for someone else’s dreams and ideals, which leaves us open to false ideals and falling short. Defining success is no simple feat. All too often we assume that we should intrinsically know what we want out of life. These things really don’t just come to us without thought. We need to take the time to brainstorm and break…

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.

    What’s a job “skill”? On a resume, it seems like everyone has their own definition. Some people list “skills” like “effective manager” and “dedicated work ethic.” Others go with “team leader” and “strong communication skills.” But let me ask a simple question: is “strong work ethic” a skill or personality trait? The answer is B. Personality traits are not job skills and, in my view, do not belong in the “Skills” section of a resume. Want an example of a “skill” that could set…

    The point of the past is to deliver the right now. The right now wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for everything that’s gone before. And right now is here to pivot into the next moment. Without that pivot, you’re stuck forever. Confidence is being able to apply choice, right in the the centre of that pivot point Here’s how that works. Notice the pivot. If you don’t see that there’s a pivot—a moment when where you are turns into where you’ll be—you’ll just be swept along. So rest, just for a moment, in that space between right now and…

If they don’t focus you, or if you focus you on things you don’t want, now’s a good time to ask yourself what you really want. I’ve spent a little time thinking about that myself.

When asked, many ex-followers of online dating agree that it requires a good deal of time and efforts, and also the human touch that makes offline dating so effective and these factors miss in online dating.

However, getting nervous is no solution to this but being confident and presentable is.

    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…

    I had developed some serious health problems when my doctor said that I needed to lose weight. Subsequently, I took the advice seriously, and I started working out. People at work, friends at parties and other moms at my son’s soccer practice would try to help me with small tips that had helped them lose weight. What I figured was that these tips did not always work for me. We do everything, follow every little advice that people share with us because we think that will help us also lose weight and become fit. Then my trainer told me that there are many similar myths regarding weight loss…
  • Is Your Inner Chatterbox Running Your Life?

    Megan Forrest
    31 Aug 2015 | 5:13 am
     “Comparison is truly the thief of joy.” -Chris Guillebeau   Inside each of our heads lives a chatterbox that runs all day long. It reminds us of everything we’ve ever done wrong, makes negative assumptions about what everyone else thinks of us, and tells us that we simply don’t measure up. It’s sneaky and quiet, but powerful. When I was first introduced to my inner chatterbox, I was 22 years old. I was sitting in an AA meeting, and this wonderful wise old man told me I have a voice in my head that never stops – a little chatterbox. He told me to practice listening for it,…
  • The Formula for Letting Go

    24 Aug 2015 | 5:53 am
    One of the worst ways of spending your day is worrying about something. Whether it’s troubles with money, a fight with a loved one, feeling guilty for something, it doesn’t matter. As long as your mind fixates on worrying about a certain topic, it just ruins your entire day. You can’t focus on anything else and it eats away at you, and the only solution for that is something that’s much easier said than done: letting go. Everyone tells you to “let it go” when you’re feeling stressed about something, but almost nobody tells you how to let it go, and…

    Lack of confidence can be a tough thing to contend with. It can prevent us going for what we want, make social interactions a challenge and leave us feeling lost, frustrated and stuck. There are things we can do to build our confidence though – it’s often not something that just comes naturally! Some things can be implemented in an instant whereas others take a little more time. As an introvert, confidence (or lack of it) is something I have had to deal with in life. Though actually, even the most outgoing people can lack confidence in many ways too. Confidence is unique to every person,…

Although there’s a ton of life lessons and things we can learn from the film, of course there’s a lot we shouldn’t take away from it either including the heavy drug use, degrading women and gang violence (these were the harsh realities of the area they lived in though). But, we are here to impose on some of the major…

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…

    I remember about 5 years ago when I was recovering from the failure of my first business and going into venture number two the terms Internet Marketing were becoming two of the most popular buzzwords. Every social media platform was filled with links to articles about the new craze. There were also tons of events all over town, and of course a new breed of experts were born, the Internet Marketers. Truthfully, if I had known anything about Internet Marketing in business number one, it would have never failed and I possibly wouldn’t have lost my retirement nest egg.   If other…

    The purpose of a website is THE MOST mis-understood piece of building an Internet marketing strategy. Most people use it as an over-priced business card. Your website is supposed to create traffic, leads, and revenue opportunity. When it accomplishes this task – your Internet marketing strategy is sound!

    The ability to stay focused is at the core of ANY success. If you aren’t focused in your business and don’t have a clear idea of your goals and purposes, you’ll ALWAYS struggle. I’ve never been shy about telling people my entrepreneur story. If you haven’t heard it, I’m a recession-entrepreneur. I was shoved from a job that I absolutely loved for almost 9 years. I guess in my ignorance/bliss of loving my job it never occurred to me that could happen. It never entered my mind that my job could be taken from me and everything I worked for over 9 years would…

    In the past couple weeks, I slowly came to the tough realization that I'm not in the same running shape as I was back in April.  Looking back at some of my recent runs where I was trying to crank out 8-10 miles at under 9:00/mile pace, I see that I wasn't hitting a wall, getting dehydrated, or having trouble dealing with the heat, I'm just not at the training level I was for my half marathon a few months back.  Much to my own chagrin, my high school football coach's mantra of "you either get

    I'm not sure if it was taking some time off of doing hard workouts, waiting until the temperature wasn't utterly oppressive, relaxing from my previous fixation on pacing with several days of running unplugged, or a combination of these, but I set an all time personal record this week.  I hit a 3.12 mile run in 24:29, averaging 7:50 per mile.     The sub-25 minute 5k was a revised version of my goal to get a 5k distance run in under 30 minutes, but as I worked my speed up, I ratcheted down my

    It's rough to have a goal for a training run and not make it.  I've certainly had my share of off days, but usually it was kind of a one off and I bounced back pretty quickly.  However, in my post last Thursday, I discussed how I'd been repeatedly hitting a wall around 4 miles into my runs.  That really put a damper on runs that I planned to be 6 or more miles.  Consequently, I noticed my motivation dropping rapidly when it came to running so I knew I had to change up my plan somehow.   My

  • Law of Attraction: When You’re Not Really Sure What the Hell You Want

    Kelli Cooper
    24 Aug 2015 | 7:10 am
    One of the misconceptions about the law of attraction is that you always have to be thinking about what you want, and have to figure out every last detail, lest you might not get exactly what you want; and oh God, how awful would that be? And as such, feeling like you don’t know what you want can be quite anxiety-inducing. How can things get better if I am not sure what ‘better’ looks like? How can I get stuff that will make me happy if I am not quite sure what would produce this much desired state? How can I focus when I am not sure what to focus on? This whole process can…

    I am so passionate about educating people about the law of attraction because learning about it changed my life dramatically. My experience has shown me over and over and over again, that by directing our focus on what we want, and away from what we don’t, we can let in more of the former and less of the latter. By engaging in some self-reflection, teasing out the beliefs that weren’t serving me, and shifting them, I created a whole new reality. Like anybody else, I am on the proverbial journey and I’ll never be done. And for the most part I have made peace with…

    “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.” – Tony Robbins  The way forward begins when we decide it does. I was training in jiu jitsu.  My knee popped. It was the sound that changed my summer. I tried hard to convince myself my knee was “getting better”.  After a few futile attempts at jogging, I knew it was time to see a specialist. Fast forward: 2 weeks of limping, X-Rays, and an MRI later. I was standing next to an orthopedic surgeon.  He read the MRI report. Full ACL tear. Bleep. The surgeon gave me 2 options: 1) Physical Therapy:…

    Eckhart Tolle tells the story of a duck in his great book A New Earth. In the story, the duck gets into an intense altercation with another duck.  They fight violently for a few seconds and then separate.  As the ducks part, each makes a great show of shaking its feathers and wings.  In an instant, they release all the anger and intensity of the moment.  The episode is over just like that, and all is back to normal; no more pain, no more suffering. In addition to a working thumb, we humans are also different from animals because of our consciousness, which gives us the ability to harbor…

I remember being in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris standing in front of his masterwork, The Luncheon on the Grass, and getting lost in it.

    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…

    The post How You Can Succeed At Anything By Using Insane Focus – The Power of Immersion | Tales From Morocco Part Two appeared first on Liberty Frontier. Cracking the learning code is something many people have spent thousands of hours on. Ultimately, they learned a lot about learning. Then they write about what they learned… But seem to forget to look at what they themselves did. What did they all do? Is it just about the hours? Or is there something else to it? Invariably when some has a deep understanding of something, they spent an insane amount of time being insanely focused…
  • What Will You Do When Your Plan Fails?

    15 Jun 2015 | 1:31 pm
    The post What Will You Do When Your Plan Fails? appeared first on Liberty Frontier. Despite what some will tell you, the path to success is almost never a straight line. 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…

  • 30 of My Favorite and Most Meaningful Quotes of All Time

    Phil Ashton
    28 Aug 2015 | 6:13 am
    Simply put, quotes are just phrases or a few words taken from someone else writings or speeches. It sounds simple, yet these short phrases can be so incredibly powerful. Even life changing for some people. Most quotes come from personalities, people with fame, power, and a platform to inspire others. But others can come from humble places, like a random person’s perspective on a book, or an aging persons last words. What I’m trying to say is, the quote can come from anywhere, and say anything. It’s what it does for the person reading or hearing it that counts. When a quote…

    I come across more people than ever who have too much on their plates. They are burning the candle at both ends, getting up earlier and going to bed later just to try and get everything done in their day. It’s a horrible feeling, not having enough time in the day to do everything. A snowball effect starts, with tasks flowing over into the next day, and your to-do list getting longer not shorter. Stress starts to creep in, you start feeling sick, you get irritable, it’s just a downward spiral. So what can you do about it? Well, I can’t necessarily advise on how to lessen your…

    Good, effective communication is essential to any long-term relationship. Friends, loved ones, work colleagues, whatever the relationship, it’s always important. There are various ways to work on communication, and often each individual situation needs to be looked at. But there are definitely some constants that can help a lot.

    Self-development seems to be more popular than ever. Obliviously it’s a topic I spend a lot of time studying, working in, and researching myself. But I have also noticed an increase in interest. Which is great. Working on ourselves and developing as a person is a fun, and interesting process. It’s also a never ending process throughout our lives. The internet has made this process so much easier. The free sharing of information has been both a blessing and a curse. So it’s easy to think you can hop online, get some advice and become a better person. This is not always the…

  • Creating To-Do Lists, Checklists, and Outlines Using Simplenote

    Scott Nesbitt
    1 Sep 2015 | 5:00 am
    I know a number of people who pooh-pooh Simplenote because it's too basic or doesn't have enough functionality. They don't seem to understand that not all tools are suited to everyone. Although it is basic and plain text, Simplenote is very flexible. You can easily go beyond simply taking notes with it. So what can you do? Simplenote is a very effective tool for creating and managing to-do lists and checklists, and for creating outlines. Here's a look at how I do that.

    At some point or another in our lives, we were in someone else's shadow. Growing up, I was in the shadow of a number of people. Many of whom I didn't know. How did I get there? My parents, in their misguided attempts to motivate me or get me to conform, thrust me into that shadow. They were constantly asking Why can't you be more like so-and-so? If I was doing something and wasn't achieving to the level they expected, I was told So and so can do that. Why can't you? As much as I tried to shrug all of that off, as much as I tried to be an individual, what my parents said…

    No matter what you're doing, or what you want to do, you need to approach it with a plan. That plan in only the first step. You won't make any headway unless you have the time to tackle whatever it is you want to tackle. Everyone seems to talk about making time to do the things you want to do, but how do you do that? The easiest, and I believe most effective, way to make time is to carve it out of your day. That's where a daily schedule comes in.

    Ever since the mobile phone became a must-have item for just about everyone, people have had a hard time separating themselves from their phones. In the early days, phones would be clipped to belts, inside purses and clutches, and even hanging by straps from wrists. People would wait for an annoying ringtone or a buzz that indicated a text message has arrived. Or, they'd be hunched over their phones, typing away with their thumbs. Those phones would be on at all hours of the day or night. Things have become worse thanks to the rise and ubiquity of the smartphone. We've seem to come…

Well, as long as there's a cell phone tower or wifi connection. I've seen the value of taking my work mobile for ... well, a long time. With everything from laptops with wifi to tablets to smartphones. But, to be honest, I'm a reluctant mobile phone user. I have one, but it's nothing fancy. It makes calls, can send and receive text messages, and supposedly can do some basic web browsing. I…

    Peter Ross

     A band aid ripper sees the band-aid and knows it has to come off. They know it’s going to hurt some, but they sack up, take hold and rip it off in one go. Bosses love band aid rippers, because they see a problem and fix it. Even when a problem is annoying and painful to fix (just like a band aid), they shrug their shoulders and just do it. Customers love band aid rippers, because it means their problem gets handled quickly. There aren’t any arguments about who is right or by how much, the customer is given satisfaction quickly.

If there is one thing that people seem to get frothing at the mouth crazy over, it’s the food both they and other people put in their mouths.

    I want to be a tree, but not just any tree. I want to be a deep-rooted, strong, tall standing tree. That sounds a little odd, doesn’t it? Aspiring to be a tree. Who does that?OK, so maybe I don’t want to be an actual tree in the truest sense, just more like a tree in the metaphorical sense.I think about the old willow tree that was in the backyard of my childhood home. It was huge with its long willowy branches that I used to tie together and swing from. Or it’s thicker branches that I used to climb and nestle in, shaded and secure.That tree withstood many…

Be mature.” And you know what? That sucks big time. But here’s the funny thing: People not understanding you is not the worst thing that can happen to you.

  • 25 Affirmations and How You Need to Write Them

    Affirmations are a powerful tool for attracting more of what you want into your life. An affirmation is a short, positive statement which declares or confirms a behaviour, circumstance, action or state of mindthat you would like to have in your life. They can also be used to re-affirm current states that you would like to maintain.   Daily affirmations have played an important role in many people’s lives and there are a number of great teachers on this subject. Two that have made a big impact for me and are worth your while to get your hands on some of their material are Florence…

    I don’t know about you, but I subscribe to a lot of newsletters for the value that content creators have to offer. Sometimes, I unintentionally get a little overboard, especially when it comes to resources that require an email subscription signup in order to acquire. Then it reaches the point where it becomes too tedious to manage and unsubscribe from each and every one of them. It’s like trying to organize a pigsty, but luckily, there’s a free tool called that helps people like me take care of this problem quickly and easily. The post How to Clean Up Your Email Inbox…

    There’s no doubt that in order to have outstanding long-term quality in life, you need to lead a balanced lifestyle. Yet balance is a word that’s often misused and wrongly interpreted. I also had a wrong perspective on balance a decade ago. I was sure that balance in life is like a calm sea, like a perfect puzzle where everything is in order – you have a partner you never fight with, you exercise every single day, eat perfect meals, everybody respects you at work etc. Every single area of life is precisely planned with just the right amount of everything. I was wrong. Let me explain.

    I will sound a little bit harsh in this post because it’s a difficult truth, but most people are very judging towards others and very indulgent towards themselves (for the same things), at least in a few major areas of life that define the quality of living – health, wealth, relationships etc. and that are, in their essence, very hard to manage. It’s not easy to have a six-pack, even less so to get rich or have really close and deep relationships with family, friends and your spouse. As an exaggerated example: people think that if they use olive oil and take a walk once a month, they…
  • A success guide for all introverts

    Many people who don’t know me (Blaz Kos) that well or who only know my work from the media and speaking on a stage think that I’m a natural born extrovert – outgoing, optimistic, talkative, adventurous and always in action. The reality is much different, with me being an extreme introvert. Over the years, I’ve acquired some traits that extroverts possess and somehow developed my social skills, but deep down I can’t survive without regularly having time away from the world. Being an introvert isn’t always easy, especially in a (western) society where extroverted people are more…

    A very important realization in life is that there’s no absolute good or bad. Everything has a good side and a bad side. Everything has its own advantages and disadvantages. One side may be more dominant (good or bad), but it contains at least a drop of the opposite nevertheless. Even more than that: one side cannot exist without the other. Good cannot exist without bad. Life cannot exist without death. Happiness cannot exist without sadness. These dynamics of life are best represented by the yin and yang symbols, from the very well-known Taoist philosophy. Understanding the duality of life…
  • You need to love yourself first before you can truly love others

    Blaz Kos
    14 Jul 2015 | 4:01 am
    There’s a cliché saying that you have to love yourself first, before you can deeply love other people, be it your spouse, family or friends – assuming that we know different kinds of love. It’s a lovely saying for sure, but let’s try to analyze and find the answer to why it’s so important to love yourself first, from a very practical point of view. The easiest first step we can take is with the starting-point that there’s something about you that you don’t love – it can be a part of your body, a part of your character, the situation you’re in or anything else. You see…

And its's been with us a long time, brewing under our skin, taking over our very lives!The zombies I'm talking about are the people living a "have to" life, rather than a "get to."  Most of their day, most of their mental and…
  • Tend to Your Life's Garden

    I was recently chatting with some friends about the concept of seeing our lives as a garden we get to tend.  Imagine it.  Your life garden is chock full of flowers from life's joys, maybe a fruit tree that represents a deep, fruitful relationship that you have cultivated.  It's roots are strong and it bears rich, ripe fruit every year.  But there are probably a few weeds as well.These weeds may be from emotional setbacks, bad relationships or cruelties done or said to you. But, remember, this is your garden. You get to tend this garden, water it and fertilize it with…

    Have your ever read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?  No, not just seen the Movie, but actually read the book?  Well, it’s one of those classics that really is as trippie as the movie and makes you wonder what was Lewis Carroll “on" when he wrote it? But reading it as an adult was absolutely fascinating.  It reminded me so much of the life as so many of us grownups life.  If you’re like me, you follow a rabbit down the rabbit hole called a career. It’s exciting and intriguing at first.  So you try it on for size.  And maybe you are there for a while,…

    A friend of mine said recently that, through The Identity Discovery Project, I was helping people understand and share their essence with the world. I said “oh yeah” that’s totally it!  Essence!  What a great word.Then I got to thinking.  Doesn’t essence have to do with smell? Oh, man.  If your essence stinks, then does that mean that you stink?  Well, if you’re reading this blog or listening to the podcast, you don’t stink!  Hooray!You are here because you have passion and desire to grow personally, professionally, and relationally.
