Many people say they aren’t good presenters, “that’s just for salespeople”. I say, you can and you must! Speaking is essential to every area of success.

We’re into Kickass Career time where we had the first “K” for Knowing, the “I” for Integrity, and now we are on to the “C” for Clarity. Your own Clarity is where your power is. Clarity means everything. For those in the career workshop, I’ve seen this come to light in amazing, amazing ways!

The first step we take in any entity for Clarity is the “Mission Statement”. With your Clarity, we focus on the PERSONAL Mission Statement. There’s nothing better than sitting and asking yourself key questions to get clear on who you are! What makes sense to you?

The Secret To Finally Turn YOUR Goals Into “Done”

Listen on iTunes | Listen on Soundcloud | Download the MP3

This week we focus on “O” for organization. I love goal setting and have been doing it for decades. For the most part I have achieved what I set out to achieve. Many people I speak to, however, do not set goals. Yet, they do achieve some things. Naturally, they conclude goals are not necessary, nice job, nice family, nice home, what else do I need? The secret to accomplishing more escapes most people and that is why they convince themselves that goals aren’t needed.

Just think all the more joy, fulfillment and direction one can have with a few goals.

Departing is such sweet sorrow, but so necessary!

Welcome to MOST LIFE and this week it’s “F” for FREEDOM. We have been exploring the 8 Dimensions of a MOST LIFE, this week, the 7th Dimension, DEPARTURE! It is such sweet sorrow!

This week we look at freedom in a new light, it comes with leaving something behind. What we leave behind might be an old job, an old lover or an old self. Maybe it is something we clung to that defines us. Perhaps it is a message that we received from long ago about ourself that we know doesn’t serve us any longer. In a previous blog, I spoke about the inspiring Elephant, Billie and the wonderful book by Carol Bradley, The Last Chain on Billie.

Thinking about things? Get into ideas instead.

Here at MOST LIFE we cover one of our eight themes each week. This week we cover “I” for Intelligence!

There are a variety of ways we can think and interact with others.  How we use our mind and what we invite in to our mind that creates patterns and habits is important! Most of what we do in this area is out of the habits we form through repetition. The people we spend time with influence our habits. The more time we spend with people, the more they influence us and the thoughts we have.

When we engage in dialogue with others we learn. We learn about who they are and we learn about who we are.

Your Vision Matters to us ALL!

Each week we cover one of our 8 MOST LIFE themes, this week it is “O” for Organization.  It is “O” week!

It’s a great week for Organization, and this is going to be a fantastic exercise to start off this year or any year or really any special time. Organization this week is about organizing your vision. Creating vision boards for this year and your future. I have done vision boards and visioning for years, as a matter of fact, 20 years ago I drew on a big poster board a house I wanted to live in. I pictured a balmy palm tree area,  a large driveway, and a mediterranean home. Well, the area I was living in at the time was certainly not those things.

Your JUNK drawer CAN be Beautiful

MOST MONDAY!

This week we talk about “O” for Organization

I decided to tackle my kitchen junk drawer. The messes hidden in our lives bring us down. Every time I open the junk drawer (which is often, since everything is in there), I can feel my energy decrease. A small “UGH!” overcomes me. I say to myself, “one day, when I have time!” Isn’t that what we all say? I mean, don’t we have the best intentions?

This week, I tackle the junk drawer demon! See what happens when I open the drawer with the plans to cause order where there is chaos.
