Savvy People Plan for Success Let's create a plan for success. In my last post, I encouraged you to say goodbye to new year's resolutions. Savvy people don’t make resolutions. Frankly, they don't work. And most people who made resolutions at the start of the year have already abandoned them. But there is a better approach. That is to have a vision for what you want to achieve and set growth goals to help you get there. Your goals should inspire and stretch you without being unrealistic. Goalsetting is good. Writing your goals down is better. ...

Self-Reflection Produces Growth

December 12, 2022|

Self-Reflection Produces Growth “People who have had little self-reflection live life in a huge reality blind spot.” – Bryant McGill Self-reflection seems to be a dying art. Some think they don’t have time for reflection or that reflecting is a waste of time.  Others are afraid to take a long, hard look at themselves.  That is a mistake because there is so much to gain by examining yourself and your past.

November 28, 2022|

The Butterfly Effect of Gratitude  Butterfly Effect of Gratitude 🦋 Perhaps you are already familiar with the butterfly effect. The concept is that the simple flapping of a butterfly’s wings could trigger a series of motions that cause a typhoon on the other side of the planet. It’s really a metaphor for Chaos Theory.
