How to Concentrate For Long Periods Without Getting Distracted

In today's distraction-packed world, it can be a challenge to focus on one task for a protracted period of time.

Now, not only are you behind schedule, but you're wasting even MORE time on mentally kicking yourself! This challenge comes up a lot in... Read More

´╗┐Should You Outline Your Marketing Materials, or Fly by the Seat of Your Pants?

For every writer, whether in the field of fiction or nonfiction, there's an important question that needs to be asked: "Should I outline my material before I write it, or fly by the seat of my pants?" If you write blog posts, web pages, articles, video scripts, sales pages, training programs, courses, or ebooks for your business, this question will probably come up for you. Both methods have their merits. Flying by the seat of your pants - or "pantsing", to use a more concise and funnier-sounding term - allows for a greater degree of... Read More

What a Meditation Audio Teaches Coaches About How to Help Their Clients

Are you equipping your clients to change their lives, or leaving them frustrated and confused? A little while ago, a friend of mine told me about a meditation CD that was supposed to help her improve her life... but instead, it left her bewildered, annoyed, and unable to get any results from it. The problem this CD had is also a pitfall that many coaches risk falling into, so to help you avoid that trap, I wrote a guest article for the International Coach Federation. If you want to make sure that you're equipping ALL of your clients for... Read More

Guest Star Post: How to Instantly Get Your Energy, Creativity and Confidence Back

There was a very recent time when I had a serious slump in my creative efforts. There were SO many projects I wanted to work on, ideas I wanted to bring to life... but I was working 11.5-hour days, and I didn't have the energy for any of the things I longed to create. To make matters worse, instead of restoring my energy, my free time actually left me feeling MORE tired than I was when I finished work! Then I found the source of the problem, and it made such a big difference that I wrote a guest article about it for MotivationEarth.... Read More

Is the Quest for Perfection Hurting Your Business?

Is the Quest for Perfection Hurting Your Business?

Have you ever had a time when three simple words gave you a much-needed kick in the butt? Yesterday, I was talking with my friend, Helen Brahms, when she shared this quote: "Production over perfection". That phrase really struck a chord with me, because while I'm getting better at letting go of my perfectionistic tendencies, I often wait until I think I can do things perfectly or almost perfectly before I do them at all. As a result, some things simply don't get done for days... weeks... months... even though a "good enough"... Read More
