How hard is it to stay organized? Some people have a gift for being organized. And I have this theory they were the ones rearranging the Titanic’s deck chairs as it was sinking.

So yeah, you know I write five daily blogs – short and pithy (almost without exception). So that’s why these top ten secrets leaders use post has to be placed at one of the other five blogs I write (infrequently, and not short).

If Tomorrow Never Comes

What are your big plans for April? Remember, impossible or big doesn’t mean something no one else has ever done. It’s means impossible or big relative to what you have never done.

Just so you know, I battle every single day with keeping up, prioritizing, postponing and even completely letting go.

And with change, the more you proactively practice, the better you get at it, which feeds your self-confidence, which just keeps helping you.

Not sure if I’ll be blogging tomorrow. Have a best-selling book to finish. April is get it done month.

What’s Stopping You?

Excuses?

Attitude?

Fear?

Anger?

Doubt?

Good.  All these things mean you’re human.  There are a million ways to overcome these things.  The secret is to find your way.

That’s one of the biggest barriers – people want to be handed the recipe for success.  The reality is, you have to find it on your own.

Rules For Being Human

I’ve had this article for ten years, given by a friend. The author is unknown. Here it is in it’s entirety:

The question remains, despite all the work and inquiry of the researchers discussed in this column and countless others: How can we build committed, competent people and workforces?

I received the following as a handout at a class I attended;  the author is unknown.  Because these reflections give me solace, I am sharing them.

1.  You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2.  You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time information school called life.   Each day in this school you will have opportunities to learn lessons.  You may like the lessons, or you may think they are irrelevant or stupid.

3.  There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error, of experimentation.  The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately work.

4.  A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.  When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There is no part of life that does not contain lessons.  If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6.  There is not better than here. When your there has become here, you will simply obtain another there that will again look better than here.

7.  Others are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8.  What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the resources you need.  What you do with them is up to you.  The choice is yours.

9.  Your answers lie inside you. The answers to life’s questions lie inside you.  All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this.

jeff here again.  How was that for the first installment of “Too Long Tuesday”?
