Taking the BS out of Time Management

We think of time management as the simple act of managing our time better.  Most of us believe we need help in this area because we just can't seem to get everything done. Our to-do list is overflowing, our commitments are overlapping, and we can’t even remember the last time we didn’t feel behind.

We believe if we could learn the right way to manage our time, we’d magically knock off everything on our to-do list, enjoy time with friends and family, have a beautiful organized home, and sport perfectly coifed hair and manicured nails all at the same time.  Am I right?!

In other words, we believe the secret to having it all is getting a better handle on our schedules and controlling the clock better.

It’s June…the middle of the year and I’m on a mission to help you either get back on track with your 2016 goals or to set some new ones!

Are you ready?!

Your 2016 Goals {Part 1}: Revisiting Your Goals for the Year

Earlier this month we flipped our calendars to June….JUNE.  In the blink of an eye and a snap of the fingers we have somehow leapfrogged from the beginning of the year to the middle!

As we slide into the second half of 2016, how are your goals for this year going? Are you on track?  Perhaps you’re already knocked a few off the list?  Or, have you gotten a little sidetracked by life and let them sit on the shelf collecting dust?

Regardless of where we are with regards to our goals for the year, everyone can benefit from hitting pause midway through the year and taking a closer look at where they are and where they’re wanting to go.

8 Reasons Why You're Not Achieving Your Goals

It's time to get real, people!  Do you have goals that are just sitting around going nowhere?

I bet you do!  We all do!

As I coach people, I constantly run across goals that are lingering in my clients’ lives that are going nowhere.  Sometimes they’re frustrated, but sometimes, they’ve resigned themselves to the idea that they’ll never achieve these lofty dreams!

To that, I say…CODSWALLOP!

How to Take the First Step

How many first steps have you skipped in your life?

How many times have you been on the brink of making some changes in your life, trying something new, or embarking on a big dream, only to hesitate, doubt yourself, and ultimately stay standing in the same spot and not taking that step?  (or worse, taking a step backwards instead of forwards?)

It’s something we can all relate to because we’ve all done it!

The Power of an Accountability Partner

How familiar does this sound?  You set your goals, you’re excited to make them happen, a few weeks pass, and, disappointedly, you see that, yet again, you let life get in your way (or a few Netflix binges…no judgment from me!).

A really easy way to help you stay on top of your objectives is to get yourself an Accountability Partner!

How Bad Do You Want It?

Everybody has a dream.  I don’t think it’s possible to go through life without dreaming of how we want to live our life or what we want in our life.  

Some people go after those dreams and make them happen, or they find variations of what they thought they wanted and tweak the plan along the way!

Some people think they’re going after their dreams, but they’re not really putting in the work to get there.

Some people never do a thing to make their dreams happen and spend their life wishing for change, but thinking it’s not possible.  

Making your goals and dreams happen is HARD.  It takes focused work, sacrifice, and dedication.

How I Stick to my Goals with Lara Casey's Powersheets

One of the things I love to talk about around here is goals and setting goals.  I’m a BIG goal setter and a huge believer in the power of making things happen by declaring what you want to happen and planning the steps to get there.

One of the biggest challenges in goal setting is sticking with it after you put in the time to come up with your goals.  

A lot of folks struggle with how to track their goals, remember their goals, and see progress along the way.  While there are many ways of tracking goals and ultimately it’s a personal choice, my favorite way to keep myself on track is with Lara Casey’s Powersheets.

8 Smart Tips to be More Productive

‘How to be more productive…’.  While not exactly a new topic, it’s one that a lot you find infinitely fascinating.  Why?  Because we live in a fast paced world with endless to-do lists and never enough time.  How many of us get to the end of the day, collapse on our sofa (or bed!) exhausted from a long, busy day, yet discouraged or annoyed because we didn’t get everything done?
