How My Friend Bob Went From Being A Failure To A Winner By Taking Intelligent Action
Let me tell you story about a friend of mine who used to be a complete failure. His name was Bob. My friend Bob was the type of guy who always was looking for instant riches, but never could seem to find them.
He jumped from one business opportunity to the next one and each time the people who sold Bob the business opportunity claimed they were going to make my friend Bob a millionaire, quickly and easily with little effort on his part.
I often visited my friend Bob, and every time Bob always would talk about his latest and greatest venture. Each time, I would tell Bob how he could use the internet to promote his venture, and each time he would get excited and say, "That sounds great".
But, whenever it was time for Bob to take action, he was always busy with his full-time job, his favorite TV program was on, or he had some other task to accomplish.
This went on for several years, and I lost touch with Bob. But, recently, when I ran into Bob again at the local grocery store, I asked him what he was up to, and this is what he said:
"I am doing the best I've ever done in my entire life. I quit my crappy job; I have more time to spend with my family, and I just bought a new car".
I said, "That's great. What happened?"
"Well, I finally got tired of having no money and working at my dead-end job. So, I went into business for myself and quit my job."
I asked Bob, "Weren't you scared?"
Bob said, "No, because I finally did something I should have done a long time ago. I first identified what I wanted and then I worked my butt off to get it!"
Later, I found out that it took my friend a good 8 months of hard work to discover what he wanted to sell, and he used the power of the internet to create a profitable business.
Like my friend Bob, you, too, have the power to achieve success using the internet if you only follow the same process.
I like to call what Bob did "intelligent action" because he was intelligent by first identifying what he wanted and then taking action to reach his goal.
Before he took intelligent action, Bob was practicing insanity. He kept on pursuing the same easy riches, each time expecting a different result.
Are you practicing insanity? If so, here are the five steps of intelligent action:
Before you leave here are some words that hold true today just as they did over 50 years ago.
"A man is the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, Nothing else." --Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

Informational Interviews: Tips for Success
As a work-life and career coach, I regularly work with people who are engaged in a full-blown career change. Typically, this process involves identifying potential "next careers" through a variety of methods, and then seriously exploring them. Informational interviews are a great way to do this, but many career seekers are reluctant to pursue these kinds of conversations because they aren't sure what to ask. Not sure what to ask the professional who's granted you an information interview? Here are some ideas to help you get the most out of your meeting. These questions are based on the assumption that you have sent your resume to this person ahead of the meeting so they have some idea of where you are coming from.

Tracking Success With A Goal Tracking Chart
Creating a goal tracking chart is as simple as drawing a basic grid or table. Create as many vertical columns as you have goals to include, and include a horizontal row for every sub-goal or milestone you wish to divide your goals into, plus one row on top for your "Finish By" date and one row below for your goal heading or title. [Hint: Creating a goal tracking chart poster-sized on inexpensive and brightly colored poster board ensures visibility and accountability!]

Winning: Defining It - Achieving It
If you ask most people whether they would like to be considered a winner or a loser in life, they would most assuredly reply that they would like to be a winner. But this begs the question, "What does it mean to win at life?" In some things it's easy to define a clear winner. In a basketball game, whoever has the most points at the end of the game is the winner. In a game of hearts, my favorite card game, whoever has the least amount of points when one of the players reaches 100 points is the winner.

Smith Could ?C? the Future
Frederick W. Smith attended Yale University and wrote a paper on the concept of overnight package delivery. Smith's professor did not agree with his futuristic possibility and only gave Smith a C for the paper.
