What motivates you?

What motivates you?I keep coming back to this question.

Everyday, I feel driven to make a difference.

  • I look for opportunities to make a difference at home, with my family.
  • I look for opportunities to grow in faith.
  • I look for opportunities to grow the business I work for.
  • I look for opportunities to grow professionally.

The more I look at these opportunities, the more I see the need to share. What truly motivates me is to take each one of these opportunities and look for ways to share experiences with others. If I did all of these items by myself, I may be able to gain some accomplishments, but I would certainly be alone.

If I look for opportunities to involve people in these areas, then the work will magnify itself and I believe the growth potential in any one of these areas will be exponential.

Take a second and discover what motivates you. Can you do it alone? Do you want to do it alone? It may be the missing piece that you are neglecting as part of your motivation.

Summer 2014 Reflection

Summer 2014As another school year has come to a close and I have been a part one of my first children’s high school graduations, I realize how quickly time flies.

This summer, full of activities needs to be one where faith and family comes first.

I was reminded of this as I have just returned from our Saturday Morning Mens Study. We have been meeting for 4 years straight and have not taken summers off. We meet all year! As a result, we have come to be a close group that looks out for each other.

As summer begins, I need to look at this time as a special time and take advantage of every moment given to us.

Time is precious and time spent with loved ones is much more precious.

Have a great summer and make sure you take time to share it with others.

Thoughts on Resolutions in 2014

Happy New Year 2014It is that time of year again, many people write items down and try to set new goals for a new year. This year in particular I am finding more and more people not even making the effort to work on resolutions, because they know from past experiences it is a waste of time.

Instead of resolutions, I am trying some new approaches:

  • Writing more and more items down. If I write something down, I have a better chance of revisiting it.
  • Drawing more pictures. I am making pictures of some of my goals and placing them as reminders.
  • Identifying behaviors I want to stop instead of so much emphasis on starting new things.

Resolutions do not work, because they are just that some words writtten down with no associated action attached to them.  It takes some type of action to make a difference.

What actions and approaches are you taking with respect to your New Year’s Resolutions? More to come in some future articles

Have a Great New Year – 2014!
