It never ceases to amaze me how the most successful people tend to hire a coach and even multiple coaches while people who are not successful do not.
And this latter group tends not to improve either. Or, if they do, it’s a prolonged process.
The first coach I ever hired was a Tony Robbins Results Coach.
That coach told me something that astounded me: Tony has not one or two but several coaches.
And I remember how blown away I was about that.
Then I started thinking about how...

Have you ever reached the end of your day and wondered, “what did I do today?”
You obviously did something…but what?
Most people, but not you after reading this article, operate in reactive mode.
In other words, they are busy reacting to things happening instead of proactively doing what they need/want to do.
ARE YOU PLAYING WHAC-A-MOLE?
This carnival game was created in 1975 in Japan. A typical Whac-A-Mole machine consists of a waist-level cabinet with a play area and...
If you’re a human being alive on this planet, you procrastinate.
And just so we’re on the same page, according to Google, procrastination is defined as “delay or postpone action; put off doing something.”

Getting healthy is a choice.
No one is going to force you to make better choices when it comes to your health.

So, as I navigate 2021, I have decided on 5 places where I will spend my time. I’m not going to be everywhere, just where my people are (or, as Seth Godin puts it, my tribe).
