Work

Quote of the Week: If you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work.

Posted by on Aug 13, 2013 in Khalil Gibran, Love, Passion, Work | 0 comments

Do you love what you do? If not, why are you wasting your time? I know, I know. The economy sucks. There aren’t any other jobs out there. But what if you used this time to prepare. Discover your true passions. There are multiple tools available to help you discover your calling in life. If you’re having doubts about the career you’ve chosen, try a career exploration workshop. Chances are you have an idea of what you want to do. But inventing in a workshop could be useful in helping to clarify the picture. Or maybe the career isn’t the problem, but that you are sick of working for someone else. Consider consulting. There are many small businesses out there that may be looking for your expertise. For example, if your expertise is in accounting, think of how many small business owners could use your services to make sure their accounting practices are in order. Either way, now is the time to move forward. I’m not saying quit your job. I’m saying do some research. What career are you thinking about pursuing? What would it take to start consulting? Spend a good week on research. Then, if you are sure you want to change careers or maybe go into consulting, form a plan. Don’t go off half cocked. But do take directed action. It’s time to do the work you love.

Procrastination Kills

Posted by on Jul 5, 2013 in Dreams, Plans, Procrastination, Work | 0 comments

Procrastinate – To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness. To postpone or delay needlessly. From the Latin procrastinare. Pro – forward, crastinus – of tomorrow. 

What are you putting off until tomorrow? Are you waiting until the right time to start your own business? Get married? Have children? What’s stopping you from pursuing your dreams now? You are. You are listening to that voice in your head that says, “You’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough.” Take control of the voice in your head. Start telling yourself you are good enough. You are smart enough. You are pretty enough. 

I used to work in nursing homes. I can’t tell you how many times I sat across from a patient who regrets waiting too long. They got trapped in the belief that there is always tomorrow. Some waited too long to settle down. Some waited too long to have children. Others never pursued their dreams because life got in the way. Newsflash…Life always gets in the way. You will always have that bill that needs to get paid. Kids need braces. The car breaks down. You lose your job. Things happen. Don’t let that be an excuse to keep procrastinating. Get off your butt and get to work. Start laying the groundwork today so you can get that promotion, or start your own business. Stop thinking you have to know everything to get started. We live in a world of Google, Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter. If you don’t know something, trust me someone has a blog or video about it. And you can probably reach out to them on Facebook or Twitter. 

Remember that you only have 6 months left in 2013. It’s time to stop procrastinating and take one step forward. And continue stepping until you reach your goal.

Faith and Work

Posted by on Jun 24, 2013 in Faith, Fear, Work | 0 comments

Faith – The assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

Faith is what gets us out of bed in the morning everyday to face the day. It is that belief that whatever great thing you set out to do will be done. You don’t know how it will turn out. You don’t have a crystal ball to see the future. But you know that what you are about to accomplish can be done and you will do it. This is not a blind faith however. You have a dream, a vision. You have done the research. You have the skills. But fear is holding you back. Fear that you aren’t expert enough, fear that you will fail, even fear that you will succeed. And that fear is stopping you from putting in the work.

Faith without works is dead. James 2:26

In order for your dreams to be realized, you have to put in the work. That means taking action. In most cases massive action. So your faith may be strong, but if the fear is stronger, it gets in the way of work. And usually takes place in the forms of self sabotage and procrastination. Make your faith stronger than your fear. Do it by creating your own accountability team. Start telling people about your goals. Create SMART goals. Give yourself a deadline. Wake up every morning believing that your goals can be achieved. Be a talker, but more importantly be a doer. Show your faith by your works!

7 Tips to Finding Work/Life Balance

Posted by on May 13, 2013 in Balance, Coaching, Delegaton, Life, Work | 0 comments

Do you ever get the feeling that one day you will look up and your kids are ready to leave home, but you have only a handful of memories because you spent all your time pursuing your career. You may lack balance in your life. That needs to stop because.

“I should have spent more time at work” said no one ever at the end of his or her life. Might have some other regrets, but that’s not on the list. So here are a few ways to create more balance in your life.

  1. Take a vacation. Many companies offer paid vacation time. Use it accordingly. If you are self employed or don’t get paid vacation time, set aside money for a planned vacation and to cover expenses while you are away from work. Use that time to rest and rejuvenate.
  2. Create a schedule. The schedule should include work, time for family, alone time with your mate, and exercise at the very least. Make adjustments to the schedule as necessary.
  3. Make time for exercise. Exercise releases endorphines which helps to improve mood. It also keeps the body healthy and strong for as long as possible
  4. Eat a proper diet. Eating properly which includes eating fruits and vegetables, helps boost energy
  5. Rest. The average adult needs 7-8 hours per night of sleep to function optimally
  6. Learn how to say no. You can’t say yes to everything and everybody and expect to get much accomplished.
  7. Delegate responsibility. Especially if you are an entrepreneur. Outsource the tasks that are not your specialty (i.e. bookkeeping, website design, marketing). This will help shorten your workload and free up time for leisure activities.
Overall, the purpose of having balance is so that you can be more productive. With the proper tools in place, you can be more effective in your career and family. If you need assistance in finding your proper work life balance, contact me at 321-800-8520 or truechangelifecoach@gmail.com
