Getting Unstuck – Jed Jurchenko

 

I love writing! I especially enjoy the days when the words flow quickly and easily. There are times where no matter how rapidly my fingers bang on the keyboard they simply cannot keep up with the multitude of ideas swarming in my head. As I type, a smile crosses my face because I know that my words are creative, helpful, and engaging. Yes, writing can be exhilarating! But, then there are days like today–times when each and every word typed requires intentionality and effort. On these days I am not in the zone, the words don’t flow, and writing feels like work. This week, in spite of my best intentions, this blog post did not come easy. And this was after using all of my best tricks.

Over the course of the week, I:

The Great Gift: Failing to Raft Down the Ohio – Glenn Brooke

 

The summer of my ninth year, I spent several weeks assembling a wooden log raft. I had this wonderful idea that I would lazily drift down the Ohio River. I dragged old logs of different lengths and sizes down the shore along our property, and roped them together. Early one morning I pushed the raft out into the water and scrambled up on it.

#054: How Are You Doing On Those 2015 Goals?

I didn’t start off the year with a podcast on goals, but I should have. I believe in the power of goals, and hopefully you do, too. Goals are what gets you looking ahead, making a better impact, and assists you in implementing your best plan. Yes, I am a huge believer in goals, but of course, we need more than a plan to see real success. Without action in your plan, you are all talk.

You can have the best plan in the world, but it takes action and proper execution to obtain the results that you desire. 

This being said, it is the last day in March 2015, and maybe you haven’t began moving on your dreams for this year, yet. That means that one-fourth of this year is already over and you haven’t created the good momentum you need to see results. Your year so far might be the busiest time you have ever experienced in life and you are wondering where the last three months went. Or maybe you are on the other side of this, are already checking your goals off, and you are well on your way to making 2015 your best year ever. If that’s you, I absolutely love that you are seeing your desired results in your life right now!

But, if you are one of the people out there wondering where the last three months have gone and still don’t know quite where to begin to make this year great, I have three awesome tips for you. If you will let me, I want to help you take your foot off the brakes and show you how to begin accelerating immediately.

Here we go…
