Cleaning the Clutter

First day on the job in 2009.  The Rotary meeting is complete and it’s time to get to work.  Since many folks are still not back to work it’s a perfect time for me to do the one thing I’ve been putting off.  Cleaning the clutter that’s my office.

I truly believe one of the factors that keeps me from being fully efficient and disciplined is that I’m “cluttered”.  I don’t do resolutions but I do believe in goals.  This is short-term goal #1.

By the end of this weekend, I hope to have my office de-cluttered, my new i-Mac in place for my tech guy Justin to move all my information from one computer to another, and organized to the poijt that I can actually be dangerous.  If you’re like me, you know things are bound to get back to a busy state of affairs.  That’s why today is the perfect day to start.

What about you?  What clutters your business or personal life?  What is keeping you from being as disciplined as you can be?  Maybe today is the right time to tackle your “challenge”!

Happy New Year.





Getting back to Blogging

I just realized I have become lazy with my blogging.  Why?  Well, all I can do is point the finger at me and say it’s a lack of discipline.  Yes, we all get busy with year-end things, both personal and business.  Between two business trips, my daughter coming home from Austria, several new clients, etc., I’ve found my blog posting getting pushed to the back burner with both this blog and my insurance consulting blog.

Enough is enough!

It’s back to work on being a consistent blogger.  The bottom line is that for my readers like you (thank you), my mission is to provide value to your business and personal life by improving your presentation and communication skills.  Tough to do that when I’m not consistent.

What about you?  Have you found some important areas in your business and personal life that’s been thrown to the back burner or even off the stove?  I hope I’m not alone!

Join me in making an early resolution.  Get back to doing what is good for your clients, prospects, readers, family, et al.  Let’s renew our discipline as we kick out 2008 and build momentum heading into 2009! 

See you in the funny papers!
