Creating A Life You Love
Imagine that right now, right here, today there is within your grasp not one but several opportunities to redesign specific aspects of your life
so that the sum total is a life you absolutely love. Then imagine that the only thing standing between you and your
opportunities is a closed mind, fear, habits, concern, worry, drama, or perhaps mental, physical, and emotional
clutter. Do you know what a default is? It's what you get when you don't choose to get something else and for
most of us a default life is average and mediocre with sprinkles of joy in between. A default life is living
for the weekend. A default like is hanging on 'til retirement. A default life is waiting for the kids to grow
up, move out, and finish college. A default life is waiting, and waiting, and waiting for things to get better
someday, one day.

Make The Second Half The Best Half
Something happens when you come to the intersection called mid-life; you can look back in retrospect and see your life from an entirely different context. For many this mid-life review brings about a sense of urgency that ignites what is formally called ?the mid-life crisis?. It?s where we can trace the effects back to causes that were initiated by our own poor decision, our inattention to important details, our recklessness, our fear, our misplaced priorities, and our ignorance. It can be a pretty bleak experience to really understand, maybe for the first time, that your life really could have been much better if you only knew then what you know now.
Ah but there is a subtle sweetness in enduring the emotional upheaval of a mid-life review and that is the fact that you can decide that the second half will be the best half. You can garner the lessons from your past life by taking the knowledge and the wisdom, and leaving the rest behind. You may also experience grief, regret, anger, and blame. Whatever gut-wrenching emotions you feel should be acknowledged and then gently released. You can choose rather you will continue down your current path or if you will choose a new direction for your life. By consciously deciding how you will live the rest of your life, you can create a life that is extraordinary.
It's a mighty sweet deal when you think about it but how do you make it happen? ...
Five Tips for Perfect Transition Decisions
You're considering a new career, new place to live or new business, retirement, or any other move. You ask, "Will I be happy?" If you remember the old, old song, "What will be" may not be the answer you?re looking for.
Life Versus Lifestyle
There is a difference but what constitutes a life and what constitutes a lifestyle is pretty ambiguous. One thing that seems pretty clear to me is the lifestyle is observable while a life can have many internal aspects to it. A lifestyle can include people, material things, environments, how we spend our time, energy, and money. A life includes things like our beliefs, our values, our commitments, our soul?s dream, and our vision. If you choose a lifestyle first you could wind up with an empty fortress. If you choose the life first, you will design your lifestyle to support the life.

Wait, That's Not on the Map
Back from my amazing summer excursion, a month long drive through Spain! Well, I mean, I didn't do any
of the driving, my partner did. See, I only know how to drive an automatic and since we have a stick
here in Belgium, my partner kindly agreed to do all the driving. In total it ended up being close to
5000 kilometers and he did beautifully without so much as a complaint. Nice, huh?
* Perfectionism is a time waster.
The very first "motivational speaker" I heard as an adult was a gentleman named Mort Utley. I experienced his speech in May of 1989 in Nashville, Tennessee, at the end of a week of Sales School with the Southwestern Company. I was 19 years old and had just finished my freshman year at the University of Wisconsin, and Mr. Utley's speech was the final component of my formal training to sell educational books door-to-door for the summer. I was absolutely coming out of my skin with an indescribable combination of intense excitement and great fear. Mort Utley's speech made one of the most "un-motivational" statements I had ever heard. He said:
Vision -- What Are You Doing Today Towards Achieving Your Vision?
Every man who accomplishes things sees first in his mind what he wishes to do. He puts away all doubt. It makes no difference how small or how large the thing you want to do may be; if you have an unlimited confidence in your ability to do it, you will do it. - Charles Fillmore
