From the beginning of 2006 I have had a daily ritual that has served me quite well. It is outlined in my 7 Days To Inner Peace book and if you are not using some sort of To Do list, you really need to reconsider.  It has been a tool that has helped me achieve more success than just about any tool I have tried.  Yesterday, I got the idea to change it up just a bit and thought I would share it with you.

For the past 3 years I create a daily To Do list that covers what I will do that day.  About a month ago, I changed it up to include weekly goals along with daily tasks.  Now I am re-evaluating that to include something even better.  I created goals for: 1 month – 3 months – 6 months – 12 months.  Now, when I create my weekly goals, I will first look at the 12 month goals, then 6, then 3, and finally goals for the month.  this allows me to stay focused on what I want to create for the year.

I believe that just by identifying what your goals are for the year will serve as an affirmation in and of itself.  If you don’t know what you want, how do you know if you got it?  Breaking things down into smaller tasks will certainly keep me focused, thus creating what I desire.  Remember, what you FOCUS on EXPANDS so stay focused on what you desire and what it show up in your life.

Peace, love, and gratitude,


Yesterday I was watching some pelicans fly by me as I was sitting on the beach.  While watching them it was very clear that they were using teamwork and staying focused on their ulitmate objective: survival.  At some point in their evolution, they learned that when they work together thier chances of finding food was significantly increased.

I believe we can learn a valuable lesson from these birds.  No matter how good you are at what you do, there is always someone else that can help you achieve your goals.  For me, I frequently attend seminars and workshops to help me grow both personally and professionally.  I suggest that you find someone who can mentor or coach you, I certainly do.  Even though I coach and mentor others, I have found it extremely benificial to get coached myself.  Initially I thought I didn’t need any assistance but man, I was way wrong.  Getting coached and attending seminars has helped me take giant leaps toward achieving my goals. 

Once you get a coach or attend some seminars and workshops, the next step is to stay focused on your goals.  Get the attitude of “I can and I WILL do this” and accept nothing but a positive result.  You know, that part of you that “steps it up” when it is a do or die situation.  You can achieve anything you desire, just seek help from others and then have a focused determination to do whatever it takes to achieve it.  You CAN do this and I know you WILL.

Peace and gratitude,
