If You’re Worried About Money, Read This…

Statistics vary, though most suggest only 20% of American workers are prepared to miss one paycheck.  I remember what that’s like.  I remember how the worry about money was all-encompassing at times and framed nearly every decision I made. One of the greatest resources that started me out of that was the book Think and Grow…

Where Creative Lives

Once a month I have an acupuncture appointment. Over the years I’ve come to count on this time as an important part of my overall stress management routine.

Out of Touch? What to do?

I recently found this article to be very interesting about aristocrats being out of touch with the realities of economic inequality.

Do this so you don’t lose focus on your 2019 goal

Usually, by the 2nd or 3rd week of January, your New Year’s Eve optimism about 2019 is beginning to lose its glow as the reality of life and your business sets in.  It may even be quite demotivating to look at the goal you set and realize you’re nearly halfway through the first month of the year…

How to actually advance your New Year’s Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions are a bit controversial.  While I’m not aware of any hard research on the matter, antidotally, it does seem like the resolutions fade pretty quickly. Instead of resolutions, try constructing your goals with clear lead and lag indicators.  Let me explain…. A lead indicator is an activity that if you focus on…
