Waking Up

Friday, May 20th, 2011

What does it mean to wake up and become more conscious? Let me share some perspectives that should make it easier to understand the process of waking up. The Cellular Perspective From the cellular perspective, you can see yourself as an individual person interacting with other individuals. You’re like a single cell in the larger body […]

Completing Projects

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Even when you take the time to set clear goals, visualize success, and break big goals down into projects and action steps, it can be difficult to get yourself to take action consistently until your goal is 100% complete. Crossing the starting line is much easier than crossing the finish line. Your overall results in […]

Building a Happier Life

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Lately I’ve been on a happiness kick. I’ve been going over various projects, activities, and aspects of my lifestyle and asking myself, Does this really make me happy? Many people say that happiness comes from within, and while that’s true in the long run, there’s also an experiential side of happiness. I’m sure you’ll agree […]

Completion vs. Perfection

Monday, February 14th, 2011

There’s a big difference between completing a project and perfecting a project. Perfectionism frequently works against the drive for completion. A final work product doesn’t have to be perfect to produce strong results. However, the project must be essentially complete. A mediocre but complete film script can still be made into a movie.

How to Achieve Stretch Goals

Friday, January 14th, 2011

In the previous post, I mentioned that I’d share a method for achieving goals where you aren’t already a good match for the goal. For example, how do you become a millionaire if your vibe is riddled with thoughts and feelings of scarcity? I’ll share that process with you now. If you haven’t read the […]

Focus and Discipline vs. Caring

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

After yesterday’s post on Life Purpose and Values, I saw some questions about why I dropped values like focus and self-discipline from my list. Are these values no longer important? Or do I feel I’ve mastered them to such a degree that they I don’t need to consciously think about them anymore? Actually it’s neither. […]

The Power of Connections

Friday, November 12th, 2010

One of the conscious growth principles I’ve been teaching for years is the principle of Love. This principle states that you’ll grow significantly faster — and enjoy the process of growth much more — when your life is rich in supportive, encouraging connections. People violate this principle constantly — and to their detriment when they […]

Hacking Reality: Subjective Objectivity

Saturday, September 11th, 2010

As my 30-day subjective reality experiment concluded last month, I shifted to a different mode of living. I finally got used to seeing the world through a dream lens. It was seriously challenging to hold that perspective at first, but after a few weeks, my subconscious took over, and I no longer had to consciously […]

How to Fall in Love with Procrastination

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Many time management experts label procrastination in strictly negative terms such as “the thief of time.” But is procrastination always such a negative experience? Is there a positive side to procrastination, one that may even encourage you to procrastinate more often? What if you could see procrastination from a more empowering perspective? What if you […]

One Week On, One Week Off

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

If you’d like to boost your productivity far beyond the results you get with the 9-to-5 grind, an interesting alternative work schedule to consider is the One Week On, One Week Off approach. Instead of working week after week, you alternate between one intensive work week followed by one vacation/personal week. This method isn’t very […]
