Add the Best; Drop the Worst

Friday, June 28th, 2013

When you realize that you have many bad or mediocre habits that are holding you back in life, you may start to feel overwhelmed. Where should you begin? Should you upgrade your health habits? Attempt a 30-day supertrial? Commit to working an hour a day on your online business? Here’s a simple heuristic that will […]

Do You Want Comfort or Growth?

Sunday, May 12th, 2013

At a recent visit to the beautiful Keukenhof flower gardens in Holland, I learned about the practice of topping. As flowers grow, sometimes the growers cut off the tops of the flowers, which they believe causes the plants to invest more energy into flower growth and less into seed production. The expected result is flower […]

Food Revolution Summit – Free Online Event

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

When I was a kid and my Mom would take my siblings and me to the local shopping mall, she’d bribe us with an offer of an ice cream cone from Baskin-Robbins if we’d behave ourselves. So if we acted like monkeys in the stores, we wouldn’t get any ice cream on the way back […]

FitDesk Review

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

In addition to evaluating the GeekDesk, I also recently tested another piece of equipment to make office work more active. Called the FitDesk, it’s a small but functional workspace mounted atop a stationary exercise bike. So you can burn calories pedaling while you work on your laptop or tablet, watch TV, or play video games. […]

A New Ultimate You Mindfest

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Last year I helped promote a free online event called the Ultimate You Mindfest. It was a weeklong series of short, punchy audio coaching sessions to condition your mind for positive thinking, success, and action orientation. This Mindfest was extremely popular with my readers, and I received many appreciative emails about it afterwards. As a promotional […]

How to Release Neediness

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Learn to notice and appreciate the hidden abundance obscured by scarcity and lack, and more abundance will flow to you. Although I enjoy some very nice abundance in my life today (time freedom, work I love, travel, wonderful friends, amazing kids), I don’t need anything in particular to feel rich. As I see it, I […]

How to Be Free of Frustration

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

If you’re feeling frustrated, it means you’re holding a vibe that aligns with a reality that you don’t want. How do you create the vibe of frustration? It’s pretty easy. Simply observe your reality, and then resist or reject some aspect of it. Look at your financial situation, and resist it. Look at your job, […]

Judging vs. Creating

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

I recently asked some people to explain the difference between being judgmental and being selective. I received dozens of different answers. Some people said that being selective is milder, more logical, less emotional, or more practical than being judgmental. Others felt they were just different words to describe the same thing. And still others had […]

Meditationfest – Free Online Event

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

The Ultimate You Mindfest that I mentioned in some previous posts was so well-received that Learning Strategies is hosting another free online event. This one focuses on meditation and is appropriately named Meditationfest. The format is similar to the previous Mindfest except that instead of having one teacher all the way through, the Meditationfest features […]
