The ultimate tool

Our attitude is a key indicator as to how we handle a given situation. Yes, having a good attitude about your current state is important. However, it comes back to mindset when looking at the ultimate tool for success.

What is your present moment mindset? What is your mindset about your upcoming tasks?

Having an open mindset that readily accepts learning new things and the understanding that you can always adapt is important. We are learning everyday.

The most powerful tool you can have is a positive mindset.

Enjoy your moment

Sunday afternoon in the sun.  Being with people you care about.

Phone on silent, sitting in pleasant conversation and silence.

That’s being in the moment. You can’t beat it.

Make it the best day!




Root Vegetables

With the fall season taking center stage there has been an increased focus on great meals. Today will follow that same path.

Head to the store and find as many root vegetables as you can. Cut them into a uniform shape and roast them for 30-45 minutes. Flavor with seasonings of your choice and enjoy!

Flavorful and healthy.

Make it this best day!


Hang in there

Many situations arise where moods can change in a moment. How we deal with these mood and feeling swings will impact our emotional outcome.

It is hard to stay calm when an unexpected situation arises. Breathe, find your center and try focus on your desired outcome (not the run around you are getting from the customer service reps on the phone). It is hard to stay calm, but try to remember the service rep most likely didn’t contribute to the issue.

They are there to help resolve, so speak with calm tone and try to make their day. Rest assured they have plenty of people who give them attitude the whole day….

Stay calm, outcome focused, and confident that the situation will turn in your favor.

If it doesn’t, remain positive find the lesson that can be learned.

Make it the best day!


Calling them out

Or calling them up!

Call one, two or three people you care are about today. You can say anything you want! A simple hello, love you, thinking of you…I mean come on, there are a lot of words to choose from!

We live in a fast paced society where little gestures are overlooked. However, by those who choose to make the little things a part of their daily routine, they receive that goodness right back.

We have said it before, gratitude is an integral part to living a life full of abundance. Go ahead and give someone a call today, make their day.

Sweet potato hash

Quick and easy side dish for breakfast or dinner?

Grate as many sweet potatoes as you would like, and season to your flavor profiles. I did cumin and black pepper.

Heat oil or butter in a skillet until hot, then add the grated sweet potato. Flatten as much as you can and let cook for about 5 minutes. The time here will depend on your cooktop.

You will need to flip the hash once. Try to flip only once and achieve a nice golden brown.

The hash is wonderful under eggs or baked salmon!!

Exit Strategy

You’ve made progress in your work and personal life. The goals you set out to achieve you accomplished, after long hours and stressful days.

Now what?

Re-set your goals to achieve a higher income level or more clients? What if this is the end of the current journey and you want to taper it down?

An exit strategy is needed. Not just a move that will drop you on your face but a strategic plan that is congruent with you life goals and objectives. This is as true for the workplace as it is for the market place with your retirement. How do you plan on living comfortably after your working days are done?

Have you planned for the exit in a smooth graceful (duck landing in the water way) or more like a fish trying to jump out of the water?

As uncomfortable as a thought as it may be at times, have an exit strategy waiting. You never know when you will need it. If life throws you a curveball and the exit plan is necessary, there will be much less stress knowing you already have one.

Make it the best day!


Unplug weekend

The weekend is here and it’s that time again to…unplug!

Pick a day or two this weekend to set the phone down, leave it inside. Turn the iPad off and get outside into nature. The weather is quickly becoming prime for exploring and getting good exercise.

If you decide to take the weekend off from electronics then read both of this weekend’s blog posts on Monday! The body always needs a reset and same goes for the mind.

Take in the sights and sounds of nature this weekend.

Unplug from your devices, connect to nature.

Make it the best day!
