There are times in life when things just do not go your way at all....like at all.
This happened to me recently when my entire business was wiped out in a single night without warning and due to something completely beyond my control. My new business Dapper Mobile Apps used a hosting provider that lost all it's servers and backup data in a fire in France.
Yet, through that entire experience, I managed to not lose a single client and actually came back from it stronger than ever. It provided me with the fire and excuse to take massive action and do something to come back from the worst case scenario.
Is there a situation in your life that you are currently facing the worst-case in?
The only thing you can do is: THE NEXT RIGHT THING...
Now go and do the next right thing...

With so many things on your plate every day and so many options to pursue inside of this world, how do you actually make a decision? How do you determine for yourself which paths to follow and which to let go? Try the RICE method to figure it out:
Reach: Is the goal/target within your reach or making you reach further than you possibly can?
Impact: Is this goal/target more of a self-serving goal or are you going to have a bigger impact than you originally thought?
Confidence: Are you confident in your ability to actually get the job done? Too much confidence and you might not be Reaching enough, but too little confidence and you might need some mindset adjustment.
Effort: Is this goal/target going to simply require too much effort on your part, or will you be able to knock it out in a matter of 10% of the time yo budgeted for it?
It's not about making all these areas perfect - it's about finding that balance inside of each frame to determine which goals & targets to truly pursue.

How failure can continue to drive you.
Breaking out of negative self-talk.
Starting from a low place isn't bad
Playing the comparison game is a game you'll never win
Once you "turn on the light" you can never turn it off
With many of us working from home, or at least spending more time at home these days, the term "work-life balance" has brought on an entirely new meaning. How do you know when to lay down your work for the day? How can we differentiate between the blurred lines of work, family obligations, career aspirations and cooking dinner? It's a freaking nightmare.
One of the keys to pulling off a successful "balance" (or as close as you can get to it) becomes setting your priorities for your day. Make the important things stay the important things. There is a reason you can't get everything done in one day - newsflash - because you aren't supposed to.
I promise you, if you don't get everything done that you need to get done today, the world will not grind to a halt. Things will not come crashing down around you. There needs to be harder limits between you and the email feed, the social media scrolling and the aimless tasks that keep you "busy" every day.
Need help with setting your priorities for the day? Try the Daily Planning tool inside the Run Your Day mobile app.
We all have 168 hours in a week. Whether you're Oprah Winfrey or the President or just a normal person. So how do some people use those 168 hours to get done 100x more than someone else?
The answer: automation, delegation & systemization.
At the end of the day, you and I can't do it all. It's nearly impossible to succeed alone. We need help - whether that is is from other people or computers or technology of some form.
Two pieces of software I highly recommend are IFTTT and Zapier. These tools have both helped me revolutionize how I get things done, automate parts of my daily schedule and ultimately achieve more and accomplish more.
My challenge for you: Find one way in which you can automate your life today. It doesn't have to be drastic or life-altering - just figure out ONE WAY in which you can automate something in your life today.

Why is fear real? Why does it continue to exist? Besides the fact that is is hard-wired into us as human beings...it is because we continually indulge the conversation of fear in our minds on a constant basis.
If you find yourself consistently being unable to take action, do the things you need to do, say what you need to say, etc....you are just stuck behind this conversation of fear. You're believing in evidence that may or may not be real which is reinforcing your belief that the fear is real.
So how do we fix this? We start to have better internal conversations with ourselves.
We have such a conversation, which takes place 100% via chatbot, which you can access through the Run Your Day mobile app. Called the "Fear Conversation" this series of questions is available in an on-demand chatbot function to:
Ask you better questions Make you list the evidence you're facing, and Actually learn something from the entire experience
You can download the app here and start using the Fear Conversation today.
2020 is officially gone and 2021 is here! But is that really a good thing? Does that make a difference? Let’s talk about resetting your mindset, purging yourself of toxic thoughts and gaining a new perspective on everything in the coming year.
All too often, we circle between the highs and lows of our lives, one day thinking we are on top of the world and the next day thinking we aren't worthy or capable of anything worthwhile. I used to think this was a weird phenomenon in my own life, but I'm starting to see this is much more common than I previously thought.
As entrepreneurs, creators and business people, we are constantly bombarded with tons of things, obstacles, emotions, feelings, and all kinds of other noise throughout the day. This has a funny way of stealing your confidence if you allow it to - especially if you work in isolation.
One way I have personally found to combat this is through small meditative moments throughout the day and through the practice of regular journaling. There is some form of distinct power that comes out when you literally hand-write your thoughts and feelings onto paper, but typing them can also do the trick.
Question: Have you dealt with imposter syndrome before (or are you dealing with it now) and what have you done to combat it?
