Learn to Delegate

Delegation is the single most important thing working mothers need to learn if they want to have more time. Many mothers feel that only they can do things right like shopping for groceries or doing laundry but the reality is that everyone can learn to do these things for you eventually if you only allow then the chance. Delegation can encompass almost everything in your life and it should be a huge part of helping you to free up your time. It can help you to avoid procrastination, accomplish more and create less stress in your life if you do it right. The key to delegation is to take the time to teach whoever you are delegating to what you expect from them and supporting them until you are happy with the way they do things.

Are you a Slave to your Blackberry or Smart Phone?

Are you a Slave to your Blackberry or Smart Phone?

Entrepreneurs today are becoming slaves to their Blackberries, smartphones and their computers. We have all seen it, people that are constantly checking to see if they have missed an important email, message or update. It can be disrupting not only to your workday, productivity and projects but also to your family. The compulsion to communicate constantly is a huge problem with the advancement of technology. Emails stream in, messages pile up and task begin to overwhelm even the most organized entrepreneurs. We can now check our messages on the ski hill, at the restaurant and at the gym. We find ourselves distracted while driving when we hear the familiar sound of the notification from our phones. It is becoming ridiculous. When most of us were growing up people ran businesses and households without the constant interruption of technology. Most of these messages and notifications are useless and only waist your time. Its the 80/20 rule. Only 20% of the messages that we spend hours going through actually matter. So...

Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?

Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?

We all want to have what it takes to succeed. But actually having what it takes to succeed is often much more involved than we know. When we do not or are not willing to look at ourselves objectively we often overestimate how far we are willing to go to reach our dreams. By not looking at our own behavior long and hard with honest eyes it becomes  very difficult to be able to see ourselves and our behavior objectively. How many times have you encountered someone that feels like they are contributing much more than they actually are or someone that says they will tow the line but when the chips are down they are the first to leave you high and dry? Many people believe they are doing more than they actually are but they cannot see it because they cannot look at their behavior objectively or be honest with themselves. Those that succeed are the ones that are able to see themselves objectively and actually see...
