Starting Today – The 5 Tools I Can’t Live Without

businesswoman retro secretary office vintage

I’m old enough to remember how awesome it was to have several female friends who would help me sneak into the girls’ dormitory after curfew.

It was a bit tricky to traipse though the bushes with a small flashlight to find the back door … you prayed none of the “dorm mothers” were hovering … but it was exhilarating when you found the door slightly ajar and no adult supervision in sight.

It was a risky gambit because you knew those dorm mothers were particularly vigilant and relished nothing more than trapping a male intruder and banishing him to the Dean’s office the next morning. It wasn’t a visit you wanted to make, particularly because the Dean’s first call would be to your Mom.

We persisted nonetheless.

Happy New Year 2015

This year is YOUR YEAR.

It’s a great time for renewal and for a fresh start … but don’t let yourself get bogged down by a bunch of new resolutions that you will most likely never keep.

In fact, just embrace this simple mantra for 2015.

Your Mantra for 2015

Be kind to one another. Embrace your colleagues. Love your family. Love yourself.

Get focused. Dropkick the distractions. Get ahead of the curve and stay there.

Do the things that only you can do. No one else will or can do them.

Here are a few powerful ideas that I believe will help you get started on an Awesome 2015.

What is Winston Churchill’s Productivity Secret?

Churchill Image: I am an optimist2“How did you get so much done?”

You’ve probably heard the question many times, asked of interview guests the world over …

“If you could interview anyone, living or not, who would it be?”

For me, that’s an easy question.

Winston Churchill.

What if I could only ask him one question?

I could ask him a million questions and talk with him for days, but if I’m only given one question, here’s the simple one I’d ask:

“How did you get so much done?”

Winston Churchill lived to the ripe age of 90

Today, Sunday, November 30, is the birthday of Winston Churchill.

He was born 140 years ago in 1874 … and died 50 years ago next month … yet his talent and prodigious output remains striking to this day. He has always been one of my favorite historical characters … and for many reasons.
