Having Fun is Very Practical

Okay, well maybe I am not the best person to be talking about fun. I would say it’s not my best thing. I can be a bit serious which is probably not a surprise to anyone who knows me.

That said, I believe that having fun is a very practical thing to do because it releases all kinds of good chemicals to our brain that can motivate us to advance.

That said, just like anything – have fun in moderation.

Have fun day,

Who is Perfect Anyway?

I was chatting with a friend recently and he was taking yet another class on how to start a business. While I am all for lifelong learning and education, no one will ever have perfect knowledge about anything – whether it is entrepreneurship, data analytics, or parenting.

Sometimes you just need to act, make mistakes (oh my gosh!), and adjust from there. Moving ahead in small or giant steps is the only thing that will help you more “perfect”. Ironic, huh?!?

So if there is something that you want to do, of course learn – then act. Revise as needed and act some more.

Have a great day,

Is Your Success on Rock or Sand?

Success is a funny thing. It will only be as strong as its foundation. Some success is rock solid, while some is easily thwarted by changing situations, people, and attitudes.

So as you think of your success and the actions that can get you there, be sure to base things on a strong purpose, clear values, and a commitment to making your goals a reality (even it takes considerable effort – which it might).

Have a great day,

The Power of Why Not

It is so easy to ask “Why Me?” It’s often the default when something happens that we don’t like. Yet that question is completely disempowering. Just think about it – when you ask this questions, your brain will supply you with a ton of answers, none positive, motivating, or progressive.

An alternative is “Why Not Me?”. This question sends your brain into problem-solving mode yielding ideas, insights, and actions to move you from where you don’t want to be to where you desire to go.

Experiment and allow yourself to be even more successful and happier.

Have a great weekend,

The Paradox of Choice

I met with someone today (I will call Steve) who is really extraordinary and he he has created an amazing life for he and his family. This all started when he left Eastern Europe with $20 US in his pocket and needed to take minimum wage jobs to survive.

Over the years, he has been successful in multiple countries and at a very high level. Yet now, he is at a crossroad. He is looking at what he to do next and his options are many.

You may think that this is the kind of “problem” you would like to have. Yet, this man is really struggling as more choices do not make life and success easier.

Steve, I believe, will win in the end as he has the courage to narrow his focus and toss the things that aren’t his top priority. Then the choices will be fewer and Steve will make a more optimal and beneficial decision.

Have a great day,
