Summary

What are you controlling? In your businesses what can you automate or delegate? Take a good look and automate those things by using technology and a highly efficient team.

You can do this on whatever journey you are embarking, whatever business you are stamping your logo on, it is key that you zero in on the most important pieces and scrap the crap. Your time is one of the only things that you have the ability to totally control if you are purposeful about it. How can you automate a process that is recurring? Take out your journal and make a list of the things that you do that matter most to you both personally and professionally. Now go through that list and really look at it and see if there are things that simply don’t need to be on there at all as they are just time fillers, and if so cross them off. Figure out what you can do to automate or delegate the pieces that are left that are not your true loves. Look closely...

Playbook to Success - Plan It Like You Mean It

Summary

Look at the way you structure your day.  The goal is to have you working on projects or tasks that move you towards your end goals and not filling your day with meaningless junk that has you feeling or sometimes even claiming to be extremely busy.  By filling your day with stuff, you are truly just procrastinating and not getting the life changing things done.   

Take out your journal or a notepad and score yourself on a few items. First, on a scale of 1 to 10 how productive were you the past week on the items that will make a difference in your future?  If that is not a 10 then you have work to do.    

Like most people you use some kind of calendar to manage your time. Start thinking about time differently and it may change how you define what goes on that calendar.  Think of it this way, you can spend time doing something or you can invest time doing something.  So, this is very...

Summary

One of the largest, most determining factors in what our lives look like we have total control over.  We have control from start to finish and that is the goal that we set for ourselves on the way to life that we want to live.  That may be as short term as what we want today to look like or this week, but it is also the bigger picture of this year, 5 years, the rest of our life.  What do you want to contribute to this world?  What do you want your best self to look like, not necessarily physically but in terms of lifestyle, career, family if you were at your very best?  What do you want people to say about you?  In other words what do you want to reflect or influence in the world?  These are the areas that the highest achievers think about constantly, and they test themselves to make sure they are living up to the standards that they are striving for.

Setting the goal is the easy part, understanding...

Keep It Moving Forward - Life Based Goals

Summary

We all know that having goals is one thing, and that maintaining the discipline and habits to reach the goals is a whole different thing.   Everyone is striving for that balanced life and in order to achieve that, having goals in a variety of areas in your life is key.  I talk about this a lot in coaching, and in fact, it is this core belief that led to the birth of Focus Forward in the first place.

Though we have seen much change throughout the years in beliefs on a balanced life; we still, however, see that deep seeded belief that something has to suffer in order to create something amazing. When I looked at this and realized that most people with entrepreneurial drive struggle with this, I had found my next mission.  I had to help amazing people succeed at a high level and realize both their professional and personal dreams.

Since we have talked about the psychology of goals as well as different size goals, what I want...

Summary

Your goal is not your big why. Your big why is the result of hitting your goal. Many people struggle to understand the marriage of goals and big why's.

If you have ever been exposed to the concept that we all need a big reason for doing what we do every day you can understand this.  Your why is a big motivator and can keep you excited about long-term missions.  It can be your family or maybe it’s a foundation you believe in.  It can be a short-term objective of that 3-week vacation you have been dreaming of taking.  You're big why’s can and will change as life changes.

 You may have attended many classes that would talk about the big why and maybe you could never come up with just one. Did you wonder if you did not have enough meaning in your life, or anything that you really cared deeply about?  Absolutely nothing that you would have considered the big "Kahuna" that would make you walk on...

Process Goals or Outcome Goals – What Works for YOU

Summary

Dig deep on goals. Goals have become the new buzzword and are not given the credit to be as large and powerful as they can and should be. Simple items that should be on a to-do list become a goal. Ridiculous right? Have we become so non-motivated that the simple functions that we need to do to exist, or should do to just be caring, giving, loving people have to be a goal? Certainly, hope not and for sake of argument we are going to assume that if you are interested in personal and or business development and are watching this, you do not need teeny tiny goals to make sure that you get the laundry done.
Let’s really look at this on a larger level, because you being a high achiever depends on the best tools and the best methods to move you forward faster, more efficiently and at a higher level than most people. To use the goals as a tool requires us to really look at the different ways that they can be used so we don’t drop the...

The Power of Goals

Summary

The power of goals has been lost. Get excited when you set a new goal that has the potential to get you further or achieve that next great thing. People tend to set a goal and then oftentimes have no plan to back it up and take it to completion. It almost seems like goals have taken on the look of a new year’s resolution, which in looking at it, really is just a long-term goal that seems to have great strength on January 2nd but by March has lost its sexiness, or we have forgotten that we ever set it in the first place as we have moved on to what we feel are more attainable goals.
You are probably thinking, this is kind of a downer. Where is the cheerleading and the “You can do it chants”? You can get there but you have to be real about what is happening. Find out what steps you need to take to get back on track to having goals that you actually get excited about and have a plan that you can execute. Then you can see...

Summary

Start the journey of building that group that is going to help take you to the next level.

Look for others that are beginning the journey as well.  Find people that are of the same mindset and embrace the same ambition that you do.  You will grow together, and you will all be a great source of marketing for each other whether it be through your blog, a podcast or maybe some form of affiliate marketing.  It is really difficult to get the big dogs to recognize you and promote you when they don’t know who you are.  They want to make sure that if they put their name on a product it provides a high-quality benefit to their clients.  If you partner with others that are also in the growth phase you are still accomplishing the goal of surrounding yourself with amazing people, while at the same time getting your name and services out to a larger database then you would be able to do on your own.

Summary

Things for you to think about when choosing the people that you surround yourself with.  Choose wisely the people that are your biggest influencers as well as those people that support your ambitions and challenge you to go to the next level.

Be really honest with yourself about picking that elite group that are going to be your “people”.  Now please remember you do not have to fire everyone in your life that does not do everything that you hoped that they would. You will find the people that are always lifting you up and surrounding you with the energy that you want.  It is always up to you to define how much time you are going to let "those people" have. Be prepared with the tools you are going to put in place to make sure you are not pulled in a direction you don't wish you path to follow.  The last thing you want to see happen is great progress forward just to have someone try to convince you that...

Summary

People that are on the path to personal growth or to live that bigger life have made the conscious decision not to be the victim and to be in control of their world, regardless of what their past has held or what influence others have had on them.

Does this mean that unfortunate things don’t happen to people that are not self-made victims…of course not?  We all have our struggles that we must contend with. Whether it be personal, business, job, kids, we all have to confront challenges.  The difference is whether you curl up in the corner and wait for the bad stuff to pass or whether you stand up to it and decide what needs to happen for you to come out on top, control what you can control and learn from the situation.

Here is the question, how can we give ourselves an advantage and come out on top more often, excel faster than average, have the influence that we desire and succeed at a higher level than most of...
