Reinventing Success

Reinventing Success

How successful do you feel in your business?

Success has a certain vibe about it, one you can recognize and feel in your bones. And yet, it’s easy to live out of an outdated definition without realizing you’re doing it, making you feel unsuccessful. Have you looked at how you’re defining success recently? You might be ready to reinvent what success looks and feels like; updating your definition will do wonders for both your business and your psyche.

How Do You Get Things Done?

How Do You Get Things Done?

What’s your way to get things done? Do you feel you’re an achiever who enjoys checking off boxes? Or do you see yourself as more laid back, getting to things whenever you can? Whatever your style, the truth is, if you’re in business for yourself, you need to get things done, and chances are, no one else will jump in to save the day. Which begs the question: how do you do things most easily and in a way best suited to you?

It’s natural to become contemplative when one year ends and another begins, and look back at what you’ve accomplished over the previous year.

This can lead to lowered self-esteem, decreased motivation, and even depression. These are not the best conditions for a strong start to the year!

You, You Can Stay

You, You Can Stay

I heard a story on the This American Life podcast about a man waiting on a subway platform, and in the crowd was another man walking up to people, saying, “You’re In. You’re Out. You, you can stay. You — gotta go.” The story teller found himself secretly wanting to be picked to stay, which was odd since what the man was doing was completely arbitrary.
