Organize for Success: Train Your Brain

Apr 16, 2019

“The Hurrier I Go, the Behinder I Get!”

Ever wonder why you’re SO easily distracted?

To Generate Massive Success, Begin Here


Herein your head.

America’s great motivational speaker and author, Earl Nightingale, said,

“We become what we think about most of the time.”

He called that The Strangest Secret.

I had an experience this past week that started me thinking about thinking. The experience was so powerful that I decided to postpone this week’s scheduled topic, to talk about my experience instead.

You Know What to Do … But How to Get It All Done?

When I sat down this morning to write this Success Letter, I knew exactly the steps I needed to take:

  1. Create an outline
  2. Do my research
  3. Write a draft
  4. Edit it and rewrite it
  5. Repeat Step 4 until satisfied
  6. Upload the finished Success Letter to my website at www.planningonpurpose.com

But Step 2 stopped me. It took me to Google. And from there, I went totally off track for a good 30 minutes. Follow this link, then—oh! Here’s...

How to Launch Your Day for Maximum Success

Mar 05, 2019

Win the Morning, Win the Day

Your alarm goes off. You silently curse it. Your foggy brain tells you that you’ll have a much better day if you give yourself an extra 15 or 20 winks, so that  you’ll wake up rested.

But even after punching the snooze button twice, you’re still groggy when your feet finally hit the floor.

As you sit on the edge of your bed and rub your eyes, perhaps you recall that old World War I song by Irving Berlin that your grandfather taught you:

You walk into your office right on time, because you know you’ve got a lot to do today. Let’s see … oh yeah, your month-end report is due at noon and you haven’t started it yet.
