Writers Needed!

If you're a good motivational writer with a blog or website and you want some publicity and more traffic, the This Time I Mean it newsletter and blog could use your help.

You would not have to write anything special. We'd put part of your normal posting in the newsletter and link to your blog for people to read the rest.

If interested in knowing more, please send us an email.


Welcome to the second TTIMI ezine of 2012. I'll keep it brief and simply suggest you check out everything that's happening around here in this short video below
final march ezine So much going on! A video explanation from "Q" 
Great Stuff to Inspire and Entertain You:

 Our main article provides some incite on how keeping track can help improve our lives, greatly. This month's blog postings include tips on "to get somewhere different, you must do something different".  In the video section there is a great video about what you CAN do, rather than what it seems like you cannot, and a look at El Camino del Rey Walkway showing you how to face your fear.   


If all that wasn't enough, we have three guest authors providing health and stress advice.    


Thank you for all the support. Treat yourself special. (There are some great special offers right below my signature.)

MainArticleKeep Track of the Numbers
When my children were young, I registered their growth on the hallway doorjamb with pencil marks and knife notches.

Next to each was inscribed a date and name. Since those statistics are most likely meaningless to the latter owners, I assume sandpaper and lacquer have removed that chronicle; yet I wonder if they left those markings intact, pondering periodically where went "Daniel, January 28, 1988" or "Brandon, April 7, 1989."

Numbers are the language by which lives are recorded;

videosVideos of the Month
We all like videos and the most popular links in the newsletter are therefore the videos I post. I work on finding videos that are inspirational, educational, and humorous.

(Note: the videos are not embedded in this email. To view them, click on the picture and they'll take you to a location at my blog where you can view them.)

Video #1: Think Big       

This is a great video about thinking about what you CAN do, rather than what it seems like you cannot.  



VOTM2 Video #2: El Camino del Rey Narrow Walkway

Sometimes, you have to face your fear to change. This nine minute video example, although it is extreme, will keep you on the edge of your seat.

To see all videos on the TTIMI website, follow this link. 

By the way, if you have a suggestion for a video for the newsletter, please let me know. Most of the time, that's how I find out about these.

It's Never Too Late to Start Again
Progress, by its very definition, is not a linear process. We move forward, we fall down, we get back up again. Each time we slip up, it means we've tried something new. We need to congratulate ourselves for that. Read the Full Post»

You're Finished! Congratulations 

By Craig Harrison   

It's easy to say resolutions don't work and leave it at that, but the simple truth is that I got distracted by fantasies of my "New Me!" results and didn't consider the effort and expense required by the massive changes I was taking on.  Read the Full Post»




Recognize Stress Before It Kills You!

Everyone suffers from stress at different times throughout their day. We all know that "good" stress can peak your adrenaline and actually help increase your performance and abilities in getting a job done.

With Gratitude
"Take some time everyday to be grateful - especially at those times when it's difficult to do so" - from the Shade of a Tree is the Very Best Shade There is

It's important to be thankful, so at the end of my newsletter, I express it publicly.  With that in mind, just some of the people to whom I am grateful include: the Mastermind Alliance; Humboldt Speakers; the Northcoast Small Business Development Center, Weight Watchers International; Mike Domitrz for his support in developing my career; my guest authors; Paul Kingsman, my most recent guest on "Getting Past What Holds You Back;" Grant County, WA for inviting me back to speak to their staff; Oregon Association of County Engineers and Surveyors for inviting me to speak in June; Kathy Kendrix and Empowerment Group World for representing me; Alysa Seabrook for her help in this newsletter; Mary for signing up to work with me; as well as all the other folks who have signed up to be coached and supported by me on; all the folks on Hatchwise for helping me with my tagline; all the folks at the NSA Facebook group for their input; all the folks on the new WW Humboldt County Facebook group for having fun with me; Ken Yeager for his help in dealing with my on-going bike accident issues; the editors of the newspapers that run my column and the websites that post it - as well as the people who read it; and of course to my family - especially my loving wife Mary Ann.


I am also very grateful to YOU dear reader, for allowing me into into your life.

Yet ANOTHER Amazing Deal if You Live in the Northwest
Scott "Q" Marcus conducting a training in Texas

I am so fortunate to come back to the Northwest not only in May, 2012 - but now again in June, 2012!  I have just been invited to return to OR for another engagement on June 11, 2012


Why does this help YOU?

That schedule gives me some days with nothing to do. I'd rather use my time working with organizations or individuals who could use my help. So, if you know someone who would like great content to help:

  • Improve Communication
  • Reduce Conflict
  • Lower Stress
  • Increase Productivity
  • Enhance Wellness
  • And, oh yes, have fun! 

I prefer folks who have a budget - but since I'm on the road, I'll consider certain pro-bono and "lower-fee" engagements. I will also waive my travel fees! All of this could result in a potential savings of thousands of dollars!  I'll provide you whatever you need to help me. All I need is contact information and why you think I would be of help. We would need to talk just a few minutes to see if there's a potential. (You can also to someone else you think might be able to take advantage of this offer.)
