How do Your Spend YOUR 168 Hours Each Week?

Every week, we have 168 hours to invest in our lives. Once we take out 8 hours a day for sleep, 2 hours for meals, and an hour to clean up and get dressed each day, we still have 13 hours each day for other “non-survival” activities. This leaves us with 91 hours each week for “living”. Most folks work about 40 hours each week to support their current lifestyle, and this requires more than

When Faced with an “I Can’t”, Look for the “I Can” Within

When faced with an “I can’t”, look for the “I can” within. Many of us give up way too early because we feel we cannot do some aspect of what we want to do.

Power Tip: Life is Better when You Let your Inner Light Shine Bright

Life is better when you let your inner light shine bright. Too many of us go through life trying to fit in with what other people think they should be. There are a couple of problems with this. First of all, life is a lot more fun when you go with your natural flow and do what you feel like doing than when you hold back and pretend to be someone you’re not. Another major

Power Tip: It’s All Relative

It’s all relative. How good is good enough? As Og Mandino once wrote in “The Greatest Secret in the World“, (a book I highly recommend) “The greatest secret in the world is that you only have to be a small, measurable amount better than mediocrity… and you’ve got it made.” Most folks are so focused on how LITTLE they can do and still “get by”, that it really doesn’t take a lot of work to
