Compartmentalize - A Prerequisite For Success

Compartmentalization is a critical step to achieving goals and getting the results you want in life.

After you establish your goals and priorities for a day, hour, or a particular meeting or project you must compartmentalize.

Compartmentalization means focusing on each individual item without letting any one activity encroach upon the timing and effectiveness of any other.

It's easier said than done, however if you want to achieve your goals in the fastest manner possible you must take the following steps to maximize your ability to compartmentalize:

* WRITE down every action you plan to take.

Underperformers keep their goals in their head while high achievers put their plans to paper in an organized manner. After you've committed your priorities to paper, you gain clarity and control which allows you to free your mind of worry and anticipation.

* CROSS items off your list.

A feeling of accomplishment precedes a completed item. Every action moves you one step closer to your desired goal and ideal outcome.

* CONCENTRATE on the present.

Focus on the here and now, you cannot change the past nor can you control the future.

If you find that you are having trouble compartmentalizing your time and activities, look at your list and remind yourself of what's most important - your current focus. Like a rubber band, this will snap you back to the matter at hand.

When you walk out the door in the morning and see this in the sky............just go back inside, have another cup of coffee, and stay home. It is NOT going to be a good day.

If I could tell you that there is a way to work at home, earning REAL income to help supplement your income, would you continue reading? Of course you would.....You would, at least read a little further to find out what the fine print is....

But what if I said there was no fine print....There is no selling....No taking orders.....No carrying inventory....Yes! That's what I am saying.

If you want to be salesman, then join Avon or Mary Kay......But direct sales is not what I was looking for. If someone did not follow through with their order, then I would be stuck paying for their order. And that's NOT what I was looking for.

I wanted something that would not fall out of the cracks...Would not get old and be replaced with something else new that comes along......Something that was recession proof.... Not run out of demand... Not get old....That would not be replaceable....Or even duplicatable....I wanted the sure fire way of working at home that could carry me and my family throughout many years to come.

I am talking about TRUE, residual income.....Do something once, and get paid over and over and over again....And that's what I am doing..... I am building my business so that I can leave it to my children and know that they will be taken care of financially.

There is no risk...There is no obligation... If you are serious and wanting to bring in a little extra income to help out... Contact me..... www.moms4netprofit.com/now I can help!

Learning to live in the heart and manage your energies from the heart is an empowering and enlightening process. It progressively unfolds your greatest potentials. When you lead from your heart, you come to appreciate all of your past experiences as part of your learning and growing. A balanced approach to growth requires appreciating yourself not only when things are going well, but especially when you have a setback. Appreciate whatever progress you make, and then use that energy of appreciation to move forward.

Parents, Doctors, Nurses to Johnson & Johnson: Make Safer Baby Products

San Francisco — Concerned about cancer-causing chemicals, more than 40 organizations representing 1.7 million parents, health care providers and environmental health advocates delivered a letter today to Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) urging the company to remove toxic ingredients from its popular baby products. Click here to view the letter.

The letter, signed by the American Nurses Association, Physicians for Social Responsibility, the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, MomsRising and many others, urges Johnson & Johnson to remove formaldehyde, 1,4-dioxane and other hazardous chemicals from personal care products by the end of 2009.

A March 2009 report by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics found formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane in Johnson’s Baby Shampoo and other top-selling children’s bath products. Both chemicals are known to cause cancer in animals and are listed as probable human carcinogens by the Environmental Protection Agency.

It's All About TeamWork!

Effective teams show up in nature - flocks of birds and schools of fish. We're amazed at the beauty, the synchronized movement, the cooperation and efficiency. They fly or swim together toward a common destination as a single unit. It’s the law of conservation and physicists call it entrainment.

We don't work or live in flocks, but much of life is spent in teams. As long as someone else is there with us--at work, at home or on the playing field--we are part of a team. And we know the difference between teams that work and the ones that don't. We want our teams to be efficient, in sync and effective. Like birds and fish, we strive to entrain.

An entrained team builds on individual strengths. Everyone is aligned toward a common goal. There's cooperation and harmony. Projects are done enthusiastically and well. Here are some things your team can do to increase its effectiveness.

  • Talk about what the team values. These 'core values' build a common foundation for the team.
  • Sincerely care about each person’s growth and development.
  • Regularly acknowledge and appreciate each other’s contribution.
  • Release judgments. They block creativity and build walls between people.
  • Listen sincerely. It's care in action.
  • Speak your truth, from the heart. Venting from frustration and anger will only turn people away.

Everyone working together will win together!

Farewell, My Love

I just need to take a moment and mourn in silence....It's official, I will NEVER see Trent Reznor or Nine Inch Nails (NIN)... They are on their Farewell Tour right now and headed to Germany. (wondering how much a ticket to Germany is)... lol.

Let's be honest....Is there a more sexier man alive than Trent? I think not. Not only can the man sing, but he sings about things most people would not even get...And he is the sexiest man alive, in my opinion.....

So, even though my brother and I did not get to see NIN....Like we planned on....I will wait for Mr. Trent to come out of retirement like most do and then we will see him one last time together.

Trent, I love you!!!

Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. She writes:

Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker ..

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting..

So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.

It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus!

While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!'

'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking!

I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people.

I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.

I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.

He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back.

My grandson burst out laughing.

Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me.

I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed.

So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared.

So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma
