that old sad refrain

It’s mid-November. I’m beginning to hear that old, sad refrain.

(I’m not taking about the holiday jingles, although those are everywhere!)

I’m talking about this one: “I’ll get to that after the holidays.”

That’s what this week’s video is about.

You can definitely put stuff off. We do it all the time.

In your mind, there will always be a better time, a more convenient time.

But here’s the truth: All of the pieces will never be in place. Things will never line up perfectly.

The time will never be right.

And another month… or year… or two… will slide by.

Why not start right now?

some sad

As the days grow shorter and the light gets dimmer, it’s easy for our energy to wane.

Years ago, I realized that I tend to experience some seasonal affective disorder (SAD) around this time of year. Because of the low light, my serotonin levels drop; and I’m aware that my usual perky self is sometimes not quite as perky. So I have to be especially attentive about my self-care: getting outdoors; supplementing my vitamin D; eating well; not self-medicating with alcohol; keeping up my running routine; getting out to the gym; meditating; journaling under a full-spectrum lamp. And not allowing these practices to slide.

That’s what this week’s video is about.

Add in the soon-to-be-upon-us holiday stress and melee, and there is a perfect recipe for the self-care cart to go off the tracks.

Here’s the scoop: You have critically important work to do in the world, and you can’t do it well without being at the top of your game.

What will you do to take care of you?

what will you do with your costume?

Halloween is such a great time of the year. There’s almost as much excitement around it as around the December holidays.

Part of the excitement is getting to choose our costumes; deciding who we want to be.

And we get to be anything we choose.

That’s what this week’s video is about.

But sometimes we lose our way. We feel stuck. We forget that we have a choice.

The very best choice, of course, is to be you. The very highest and best expression of you.

Who is that?

Who will you choose to be?

cybersanity

Our wonderful technology, designed to serve us, all too often enslaves us.

It’s always there. We’re always on.

There’s no escape.

Unless we ourselves create one.

Seek islands of refuge for yourself. It’s the key to sustained success.

bad stories

Entrepreneurs and business professionals often tell bad stories.

To themselves. About themselves.

They judge themselves, and hold themselves to standards that they wouldn’t ever impose on others.

That’s what this week’s video is about:

Tell better stories.

pole pole

On Kilimanjaro, the climbing guides tell their clients to go Pole Pole (pronounced Polay Polay) if they want to succeed. It’s good advice for accomplishing any major objective, in business and in life.

That’s what this week’s video is about.

When starting off toward any significant goal, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. But you can always take one step.

Remember: It’s not the size of the step but the consistency of the action. Small consistent steps over time lead to the magnificent results. And the grand summits.

So today, take just one step.

Pole Pole.
