The Magic of Thinking Success by Dr. David J Schwartz- a great book
To make enthusiasm work miracles for you, remember:
•Enthusiasm is your psychological ignition system. People succeed in direct proportion to their ability to turn on their enthusiasm.
•Enthusiasm works “miracles in selling, in business, in sports, and in rearing a family. Success and enthusiasm go together.
•Believe in what you do and enthusiasm follows. If you don’t believe something is right, don’t do it.
•Put enthusiasm in what you say. Your sound is more important than the words you speak. Put spirit in your voice. Let your voice say, “I am glad to talk to you.”
•Smile and you manufacture enthusiasm. Remember, you can’t be angry or depressed or worried when you smile. And when you smile, other people like you.
•Knowledge builds enthusiasm. The more you know about something, the more enthusiastic you become.
•Help others feel enthusiastic. It makes you even more enthusiastic.
Make it your best week yet!
It’s been a fast, challenging and for some a painful year.
And, if you’re tired of struggling, fearful of the current economic crisis, and paralyzed by the pace of change, I’ve got a great way for you to take control of your future and finish the year off with a bang.
September 22rd is an important date as it marks the 100 day countdown of 2010. With that in mind, I want to thrown down a challenge, I want to provide you with an opportunity to redeem yourself and turn things around for the better and I mean much better.
You see, one thing we all have in common is that we all love a challenge!
For some it could be a goal that puts you to the test, an obstacle that says you can’t beat me, a belief system that is begging for a breakthrough, or even a mountain that just dares you to climb it.
Whatever it is, you’re attitude should be BRING IT ON, as there’s nothing quite like a good old fashioned challenge to see what you’re made, to push the boundaries and tests your limits as it is ONLY when we overcome these trials that we get to reap the sweetest rewards.
My colleague, Gary Ryan Blair, otherwise know as The Goals Guy has put together what I believe to be the most comprehensive approach to goal setting and performance enhancement.
Gary has been working with executives and employees at Coca-Cola, American Express, IBM, Starbucks, Time Warner, Disney, and many more teaching them exactly how set and reach their goals – if he can do it for them, he can do it for you.
Many of the top leaders in just about every field call on Gary when trying to develop and execute on certain goals. It is so much easier when you know HOW to create a workable plan, and can create accountability and that is where he excels.
Back to your goals and the challenge. Gary has created a powerful program that will show you how to make maximum performance gains in the shortest time possible. It is very effective and very affordable.
I think it is a no brainer if are serious about making changes and finishing the year strong than you simply must check out this program.
It’s called the 100 Day Finish Strong Challenge and it begins on September 22rd, which just so happens to be the final 100 days of the year.

5 Ways to Double Your Management Productivity
by Warren Wandling
Decide to become an expert manager and double your productivity.
1.To become a top manager takes action and a desire to formulate a high performance work team. One of the action steps is self-discipline. Self discipline allows you to do what you need to do even if you don’t feel like doing it. This action alone will start to move your life and career onto the fast track.
2.Setting Goals– One of the most important words for a manager is Clarity. It has been stated by peak performance experts that nearly 80% of success is based on your ability to be clear about what you want. Consequently, frustration or failure comes to managers who are vague or unclear about what they want and how to achieve it. An eight step process will help you achieve success. Every successful person has used this process or a combination of these eight steps.
oMake a list of your talents and skills
oDecide what you want to achieve
oWrite your goals down
oPrioritize your goals
oSet a deadline
oIdentify the steps to complete
oTake daily action on your plan
oUse a tracking system to monitor progress
3.One of the keys toward doubling your productivity is to plan every day. Correct planning will increase your performance as a manager. Successful managers plan their activities in advance. Follow the 90/10 Rule – You will save 90% of your time by spending 10% planning your activities.
4.Organize your work space. Highly successful managers work with a clean work space. Unproductive managers are easy to spot. Files are everywhere. To become a highly productive manager, create a work space that communicates you are highly productive. Always work from a clean desk, even if you have to move files to another table. Keep your work space clean and organized. Thirty percent of work time is wasted looking for something that is misplaced. Research has proven that no one works better from a messy desk. When the same person cleans up the work space productivity doubles in twenty- four hours. This optimizes the work environment.
5.Systemize your work – determine the most effective process to complete your work. If you work from a SOP (Standard Operating Procedure), it will be easy to systemize your work. Take one of your larger tasks and write down every step that needs to be completed. Then reduce that list by 30%. Look for ways to combine steps. Eliminate unnecessary steps. Be creative. When you streamline tasks, you double your productivity and become a top manager.

Learn the top three strategies of high achievers to increase your business success
Do you find yourself working at a slow pace with a low energy? If you want to work as a high achiever, then analyze how fast you work on tasks during your day. Ask yourself these questions: How faster do I move through my day? And, on a scale from 1 to 10 where am I? (10 indicates that you are moving fast.) The faster you move the more momentum you create. The more momentum you create the more you will accomplish. Get into activity that will produce high achieving results. As Dave Ramsay says, “gazelle intense.”
Here are three top techniques that high achievers use in their chosen profession.
The first strategy is to work faster. Pick up your pace. Whatever you are working on, beware of your pace that you are working. Do you find yourself working at slower pace with a low energy level or are you working at a high level urgency? Develop a sense of urgency about your day. Get into the do it now habit. Use the ABC priority system. List your tasks that need to be completed for the day and label them with an A, B or C. An A task is something that needs to be finished today. Work only on the A tasks before moving onto a B or C task. Developing a fast pace is key to becoming a High Achiever.
The second strategy is to work longer and harder. Have you ever said to yourself “ I can’t get anything done at work”? This is a common frustration. You must resolve that you are going to work harder and be focused all day long. If you find yourself being interrupted by other co-workers simply use the phrase “back to work.” Schedule two hours everyday without interruptions. Start an hour earlier, and stay an hour later. This will add two extra hours of productive time in your day, which is equal to an extra person working at your current pace. Use the clock as a tool to help you keep track of how much time you have until your next task. As you start to use this strategy your energy level will increase along with your productivity.
The third strategy is to focus on your high payoff activities (HPA) Write down five to seven tasks that are the most important for you to complete everyday. If you are a manager, scheduled a one-on-one proactive coaching meetings, on a weekly basis, with each of your team members is a top priority. If you are sales professional, talking with prospects is an HPA. Clients who use this strategy report that they get more satisfaction from their work. Make your list of your HPAs today and you will start getting more job satisfaction.
