Ideas to Help Boost My Productivity

I stumbled upon this article tonight, and read through a few of the ideas.

The ones that strike me the most ... are the ones about knowing what you want to accomplish, noting all the steps you need to cross to get there, and then being diligent about actually doing what you want to do.

I realized tonight, that one of the hardest parts about living a life of passion, is clearly understanding what you are passionate about. And then realizing HOW you can get to the lifestyle that will let you get there.

Personally, I waffle back and forth between so many things, it's no wonder I've never committed my future to anything. It's giving me plenty to think about though.

Most companies don't fail for lack of "Vision", they fail for lack of "Follow-through".

Write down your Vision, goals, and direction, then Share those goals with as many people as possible so that they can hold you accountable. (ahem, my e-mail still works)

Study Proverbs and Benjamin Franklin, listen to Zig Ziglar "Goals" book.

sometimes I think that you're like me, where your ideas come faster than you can attack them. somehow there has to be a way to filter and evaluate them and focus on the Best of the Best. ???

PS: Love the new logo with Scrabble pieces or ???
