Evernote and goal-setting


This week is important for your 2015.

If you’re like most, the New Year marks a great time to reflect and reset.

It’s a time when we can craft a plan for making 2015 our best year ever.

The problem is, you and I both know that the average “plan” just doesn’t work.

FUN FACT #1: Did you know that the average person sets the same New Year’s resolution 10 times!

FUN FACT #2: After just one week, a full 25% of people have already given up on their New Year’s resolutions.

Crazy right?

That’s why this week (Tuesday specifically) is a significant date for you.

Michael Hyatt’s course called 5 Days To Your Best Year Ever will change the “average” outcome. It’s designed to help you get clear and actually accomplish more of what you really want.

The reason Tuesday is important is because he just announced ANOTHER extra gift for anyone who purchases before Tuesday at midnight.

It’s called the Goal Tracker System and it works seamlessly with Evernote.

In it Michael shares:

* 3 reasons why Evernote is a better goal-tracking solution than more robust, dedicated applications. (Remember: “Complexity is the enemy of execution.”)

* 2 simple tricks for using Evernote to keep your goals visible, so you don’t fall victim to out-of-sight-out-of-mind syndrome. This is the #1 reason people fail to achieve their goals.

* 4 click-by-click steps for setting up your personalized Goal Progress-tracking System (GPS). You can watch him do it on-screen, then do it yourself.

* An importable Evernote template you can use to track your key motivations, next actions, progress reports, and random notes for each goal. Simply double-click on the included file and start

So if you’d like to have your best year ever, I recommend you go register for the course while the Evernote Goal Tracker System is still available.

All the best.


P.S. The Evernote Goal Tracking System bonus will expire on Tuesday (December 30th) at 11:59pm PST so make sure you register today and get the extra goodies 🙂

Modeling the Gift of Giving to Your Kids


Over the holidays, we can get so caught up in the hustle bustle that we can forget the true meaning of exchanging gifts.  I don’t think we should take lightly the giving of gifts; it is far more than an annual obligation.  It’s so much more . . .

3 Powerful Insights About Giving Gifts You Can Model for Your Kids

1.  It takes your eyes off yourself and on to someone else.

“You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35b NLT

2.  You’re showing honor to those to whom you give the gift.

“They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold,frankincense, and myrrh.”  Matthew 2:11 NLT

3.  You’re imitating Jesus who gave the gift of himself.

“For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NLT

Beyond the giving of the physical gifts, remember your gifts are giving a little piece of yourself that honors the receiver.  So this Christmas, first take time to cherish the most important gifts in your own life, your family and friends.  Then, gift them with the most important gifts you have to give . . . your time, your full attention, and your unconditional love.  Help your kids to learn to give these priceless gifts of self.  Then, help them select or make gifts from their hearts to bless and show honor to others . . . the make their day kind of gifts! That’s modeling a lifestyle of meaningful giving to your kids, and that’s a great gift in itself.

Ready, Aim, Aim


th-1Is there anyone out there like me?  Do you plan to do things that you just never seem to get around to?  I know I don’t want to do this, but life just happens and well . . .  I ask myself, what do the really successful people do that I don’t?  They say you need written goals.  I have written goals. So scratch that as the sole solution.  Especially when you write them down and stick them in a drawer somewhere and never look at them again until you clean out the drawer.  There must be more.  I’m committing to make 2015 different.  How about you?

I’m going through Michael Hyatt’s “Your Best Year Ever.” It is eye opening and amazingly helpful.  I feel like it is one “ah ha” moment after another!  I’ll share a snippet from Day One that really struck me.

There are 3 truths we must hold in order to move into our best future.

1.  Your limiting beliefs are the only thing holding you back.

2.  You have more power than you think; the only thing missing is clarity.

3.  You have more resources than you can possibly imagine.

Wow!  I had to ask myself these questions.  What limiting beliefs are holding me back?  What do I need clarity on?  What resources have I been over looking?  I felt like I could see a light at the end of the tunnel.  Finally, progress!  This seems to be a theme in my life and an answer to prayer because I keep running across pieces to this puzzle.

Recently, I learned this great Acronym PDCA – PLAN, DO, CHECK, ADJUST

Most of us plan and then do and if it doesn’t work, we just say to ourselves, “We’ll that failed.” and quit.  No, you just found a way it wouldn’t work.  All you need to do is check what you did and then make adjustments and repeat the cycle.  That’s how to move ahead.  What if Edison had quit after his first attempt at the electric light bulb.  You’d be reading this by candlelight.  What he did was PDCA over 9,000 times before he made an electric light bulb that worked.  This concept knocks fear of failure on its ear!

This year, I’m determined to change ready, aim, aim, to ready, aim, fire, bullseye!  There are big things to accomplish out there!  I’m getting rid of limiting beliefs, getting clarity, and tapping into those limitless resources and implementing PDCA in my life on a consistent basis.  After all, I’m a child of the King!

I’d love to hear from you!
