1. For those of you who acknowledge that your mental state has a huge impact on success, you might want to check out You'll See It When You Believe It
, by Dr. Wayne Dyer. It's a powerful book that addresses, among other things, how we tend to find what we're looking for - whether that's evidence of success or failure.
2. Brace yourself: I'm doing a 180 from metaphysics to technology. I strongly recommend getting a hands-free, Bluetooth (TM) headset; I'm madly in love with my purple Jawbone
. True, you risk having people look at you oddly when they think you're talking to yourself, but I think that's a small price to pay for being able to arrange a meeting with your perfect prospect without
dropping the phone or looking less than professional.
3. If one of your perennial New Year's resolutions is to "get organized", why not make this the year you actually do
it, rather than just talk about it? And I'm not talking about trying to figure it out yourself; that way lies madness. I'm talking about investing in a professional organizer who's trained to cut through the chaos. If you live in the United States, you can find a local organizer at the National Association of Professional Organizers
. If you live elsewhere, it might take a bit more searching to find your organizing angel, but you can start at the International Association of Professional Organizers
. In any event, it will be well
worth your time to support your sanity and your success.
