Could This Change Your Life?

Jump start your work attitude the moment you open your eyes

Say this repeatedly to yourself upon awaking to jump start your work attitude the moment you open your eyes,

i feel happy, i feel healthy, i feel alive.

i feel happy, i feel healthy, i feel alive.

i feel happy, i feel healthy, i feel alive.

i feel happy, i feel healthy, i feel alive.

Say it to yourself in your thoughts, or, if you are alone, say it out loud.

Repetition is the mother of all learning.

Let me say that again, repetition. Ya with me?

Who needs me to draw a map?

No seriously, I hope you’re getting this.  Hey, everyone is busy. You don’t think I know that?  Come on, I get it.

But do others get it?  There is never going to be a time when you will have time. It hurts to hear this, doesn’t it?

So now is the time.  And this is the place for simple, daily reflections on excellence. It has to be a daily habit, or it will never be excellent.

You can be very good, without a daily habit, but not excellent.

My whole point last week, spontaneously inspired by a ten-minute walk outside that Dallas hotel, was what Tom Peters calls: “A Brand Called You”. Others call it ,  “Me Inc”.

Be well and do GREAT work!
