Hopefully, by now you have written goals for this next year. If not, my new course, 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever, can guide you through the process.

But as much as I believe in having a set of written goals, it is not enough. You have to take action and then systematically measure your progress. Fortunately, there are numerous apps designed for just this purpose.
The ability to build rapport and trust is a critical success skill in leadership. This is obvious if you are an author or speaker, but it is necessary even if you aren’t.

If you are going to be successful in influencing others—even if it’s just to buy your point of view—you must become proficient at building trust.
My friends at Rainey Media just finished my new speaking reel. I’m so pleased with how it turned out.
By the way, if you have thought about bringing me in to speak for your event, now is the time to do it. I have cut my available speaking dates in half this year. It is part of an intentional strategy to stay home and create more content. I only have five more events to book and then my schedule is full. I will not be accepting more invitations once that happens.

Wow, the new year has really come around fast this time, hasn’t it? One of the things that I find most helpful towards the end of the old year and start of the new one, is to evaluate how I work.
Especially, with the huge amount of online tools and the fast pace at which they’re changing, there’s almost always a way to improve my workflows and to make my life that much more efficient. What better time of the year to do so than at the beginning of 2014?
Well, it’s that time of year again. Last year is officially over. The new year has just begun. The future is pregnant with possibility!

As you may know, a few weeks ago, I launched a new course called, “5 Days to Your Best Year Ever.” In addition to offering three free videos about goal-setting, I hosted a live Q&A call on the topic. We had over a thousand people on the call and dozens of great questions. In this episode, I share the recording of that call. I think you will find it helpful as you finalize your plans for this year.
Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.
See You Next Year!
I hope you are enjoying a little down time during the holidays. This is one of my favorite times of the year. I am spending time with my family and planning for 2014. I will return to my blog after the first of the year.
Don’t mistake movement for achievement. It’s easy to get faked out by being busy. The question is: Busy doing what?
As a busy blogger, podcaster, author, speaker and consultant, I get asked all the time about the tools I use to get it all done.
So I decided to let you peek inside my toolbox and wrote a simple ebook with ALL of them.
You can’t buy Inside My Toolbox. There’s only one way to get it—by subscribing to my FREE email newsletter.
