Where to start

It’s easy to want to help others.

It’s easy to give advice to others.

It’s easy to try to be there for others but when looking at where to start, consider starting with yourself.

It’s difficult to help others when you need help yourself.

As an example, a drunk wont be successful telling someone else not to drink.

A person who is overweight wont be successful telling someone else how to lose weight.

A failed business person will struggle telling someone else how to run their business.

Sometimes people need to realize they need to start fixing their own problems before trying to help others.

Have a great day!


What’s going right?

It’s quite common to look at an organization and ask “what is going wrong?” and then try to fix the problem.

What if we started focusing on what is going right?

Learn from what is going right.

Repeat what is going right.

Expand what is going right.

Get rid of the rest.

Just a thought

Have a great day!


Control Expenses

A lot of people put a big emphasis on generating more revenue but they might want to consider controlling expenses as well.

When you can minimize expenses you can survive a downturn in revenue but even with an upturn in revenue, uncontrolled expenses can be fatal to an organization.

Just a thought.

Have a great day!



The willingness to withstand pain will frequently determine a persons likelihood for success.

Whether it’s the pain that comes with training or the pain that comes from waiting it’s the rare person who becomes an overnight success. More often the “overnight success” spent 20 years preparing for their sudden success.

Too often it’s the pain that stops the success and that is a shame because people can handle a lot more pain than they believe they can.

Have a great day!


Interim Steps

Sometimes when setting big goals, it makes sense to break them down into smaller goals, or interim steps.

By creating these interim steps, it makes the process less daunting because as you accomplish the smaller steps, you can see progress and start to feel better about yourself.

The other thing you might find is some of these interim steps might be more exciting that you originally planned and might result in you making that a final destination or possibly changing the direction completely

You never want to lose focus of the final destination but when you have interim steps, you have mini focuses and also can change when needed.

Have a great day!


When enough is enough

You have a point to prove. You do some testing and the numbers look great.

While the numbers are great to have, there is a point where testing just one more time, or adding one more variable becomes over kill and it’s time to leave the testing stage and move forward.

It’s easy to want to try one more test or a little bit more time but sometimes you have to step up and say “enough is enough” and start going forward.

Have a great day!
