Give It Away, Give It Away, Give It Away Now

Give It Away, Give It Away, Give It Away Now

You reap what you sow. If there's an easier way to sum up life on this planet, I haven't heard it.  This is the ultimate law of the land.  You get what you give.  At work, at play, in relationships, and in every single part of your existence. So here's some more pay-it-forward mojo that will show up later for you in lots of magical ways... Give away $20. Don't just throw it in the trash though; I think you can see the symbolism there and how that one might come back to haunt you. Give it to someone whom you feel may need it, [...]

Nice and Easy

Nice and Easy

Here's a real simple and quick tip that has the potential to impact your life in a huge and positive way.  It will change the way you see the world around you, lighten the load of stress you carry around with you all day, and make the people you come in contact with feel better, too. Be nice. Life could be described as a series of choices that each of us make every single day.  One of the choices that comes up quite a bit is whether or not we should be nice.  It shows up in a variety of situations, too.  Should I be vengeful [...]

Dig In and Dig It!

Dig In and Dig It!

How would you like to take something that you're already doing every single day,  maybe even three or four times a day, and turn it into an amazing experience that you'll likely remember for a long time? It's going to sound really easy, and that's because it is.  But as simple as it is to do, you've probably still missed all kinds of opportunities to do it!  Like three or four times a day since you were about three years old... Okay, that's the build up. So here's the thing you can do today that will make you feel fabulous [...]

Quiet Down

Quiet Down

One of the best things you can do for yourself is make the time each day to be still.  Be quiet.  Find peace. Meditation is really a beautiful thing. When you're quiet, you transport yourself from the craziness of the day-to-day grind into the world of your inner self.  In this place you can find that peace that seems so hard to come by when the distractions of life are otherwise bombarding you from all sides.  And this personal time can be a miraculous recharge for your whole system, even if you just do it for 10 minutes a [...]

Smile Collecting

Smile Collecting

Here's a really simple thing you can do that will make your day a lot more fun.  It involves performing a simple act that requires minimal effort, and which will cause you and all the people who are part of your world for the day feel really good, if only for a few minutes. Sounds pretty cool, right?  So if you're ready to give it a shot, here it is... Smile at everyone you come in contact with. Whether it's a co-worker you pass in the hallway, a stranger who happens to be in your aisle at the grocery store, or a neighbor walking [...]

Hit the Road

Hit the Road

One of the best things you can do for yourself is get up and take a walk. You can walk around the block, over to the park, to the grocery store, or just do some laps around your yard.  The important thing is that you're up, you're out, and you're moving.  Just do it. In fact, get up right now and go walk.  You can come back...this post will still be here waiting for you.  And you'll feel better while you're reading it. Welcome back. The thing about walking is that it does some really nice things for you.  For one, it keeps [...]

Talk the Talk

Talk the Talk

Engage in a meaningful conversation. One of the easiest things for any of us to do is avoid talking to people.  We live in the amazing and wonderful social networking age, which means any of us can have 5,000 buddies without ever having an actual conversation.  Heck, we may not even have to see any of our friends, let alone talk to them! But this is where many of us are missing out on a truly wonderful part of life. Today, take the time to start or join a conversation, in person, and really dig into it.  Ask questions, [...]

List It

List It

Okay, here's a great tip for day three... Make a list of five things you're thankful for. Now before you simply jot down the first five things that pop into your mind and set the list some place where you'll never pick it up again, stop, sit down, clear your mind and think about it a little bit.  These need to be five really special things that you truly feel lucky and blessed to have as part of your life.  They can be people, things, or even circumstances.  The only real rule is that they make you realize how wonderful that specific [...]

Yuk It Up!

Yuk It Up!

Laugh more. In fact, make it a an absolute priority that for at least a few minutes each day you laugh until you almost cry.  This will be one of the most amazing and positive transformations you will ever make for yourself. There's no greater feeling than to cut loose in a fit of passionate and uncontrollable laughter.  When they say "laughter is the best medicine" they're not kidding.  I like to call it the ultimate elixir for the soul.  It cures what needs curing...including the things you didn't even know were wrong with you. [...]

Be Here Now

Be Here Now

Are you ready for 30 things in 30 days?  If so, then let's dive in. I figure that if we're going to get this party started, then let's go for something BIG right out of the gate. The first challenge I'm going to throw out is maybe the most important one of the bunch.  It may not be the easiest to apply, but if you put it into practice, it will have the most lasting and significant impact in your life.  So here it is... LIVE in the present. It's sort of  trick challenge, in that, the present is actually the only time [...]

30 Things in 30 Days

30 Things in 30 Days

Someone once said to me about business, "what gets measured gets done". As I recall it was a stiff corporate suit, who seemed to take some strange pleasure in the various ways he exacted torture on his employees by implementing new and creative ways to micro managment them...but, let's not go there in this post... The point he was making was actually a very good one.  And it doesn't only apply to business.  It makes sense for every part of our lives.  Any plan worth its own weight starts with a clear vision.  And in [...]
