One of my clients asked me, “Can you help me figure out if I have a LinkedIn profile. And, if I do, can you help me update it? Cause I don’t know what the heck is going on!” This client is a high-performance executive, and someone who has amassed millions of dollars for the corporations that he worked for over the years. However while standing at a career crossroads, he was unsure of which path to take, and was even unsure of what the different paths were on the roadmap of social media.
In today’s world, certain websites have become the go-to for potential employers and business partners. LinkedIn is one of many websites used for this purpose. Others include Google+, networkingforprofessionals.com, plaxo.com, etc. There is also a long and growing list of social networking sites for entrepreneurs such as biznik.com, cofoundr.com, and efactor.com.
Of course there is an even longer list of photo based social networks. The most popular today seem to be Instagram, Flickr, and Pinterest. And we all know about Facebook, and the other social networks that are remarkably similar to it in Europe like vk.com, others in countries around the world. Also, leading blog and micro blog sites like Tumblr.com and Twitter are hugely popular around the world too.Read More

Hey! Where were you at 3:15 pm on June 1, 2010? It’s a random question, I know. But if you have kept a journal you might be able to answer that question. Good writing is all in the details, and a lot of famous writers use journals to process their ideas, break writer’s block, or just to increase their writing flow. One of my writing heroines, Susan Sontag, expressed her passion for journaling by saying, “In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could to any person; I create myself.”
It’s a valuable tool in your writer’s toolkit and I encourage you to try it out! But first, watch this video to help guide your journaling journey. And, remember that I’m excited to be your personal writing muse. Together, let’s make YOUR words legendary!
Peak Performance Strategy: “WOW!” Yourself
By Thomas Hadley
As we are being focused and productive during our week, we are getting a lot of important, non-urgent things done. We are working in what Stephen Covey calls “Quadrant 2” in his book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. So we are making great progress for the long haul. This should make up the bulk of our activities. These activities are good. We are preventing disasters and fires and are investing in our long-term success and the success of those we come into contact with. However, this can be a trap.
Have you ever gotten to the end of a week and realized that you accomplished everything that was on your calendar for the week only to ask yourself, “What Massive Actions have I taken this week? What huge accomplishments have I made this week in working toward my goals?” You didn’t WOW yourself! Maybe every day you have had your spiritual devotional times, exercise routine, quality time with your wife and family, studied in the areas that you need to gain expertise in for certain goals, met all of your sales goals, contributed to your church ministry and community. But when you think about it, you didn’t slap ANY HOME RUNS or worse yet, you didn’t even SWING at any balls to try to do so. You didn’t WOW yourself!Read More

How to unlock Hidden Potential – Part 3
By Thomas Hadley
There is much written on the subject of learning from failure, so I will only share one thought with you here with regard to unlocking the hidden potential to be found in this type of adversity. The thought is this:
When we look at our successes and failures, we have to understand that we are evolving beings.
Failure is defined as “an event that does not accomplish its intended purpose.” The outcome of an event today may not be in alignment with the aims we have for ourselves today– at our current state of evolution. However, this same outcome could be exactly the outcome we need to accomplish the purpose we have in a later stage of our personal evolution. This could be years down the road. Failure is all a matter of our intentions and perceptions. We are limited in our ability to fully learn the lessons life is teaching us on a daily basis. The lessons we are taught today may not sink in for days, months or even years. As we evolve in our awareness, however, our intentions tend to come into alignment with those lessons we have learned in our lives.Read More

Invest in Strength Training and Increase Your Metabolism
By Chris Freytag
Financial experts speak of letting your money work for you—investing your savings so they earn money on their own, without additional labor or effort on your part. Weight management works in a similar way. Sure, you’ll burn calories when working out, but to work more efficiently, you also want your body to burn calories at the highest possible rate even when you’re NOT exercising. You want to burn calories when you’re sitting at your desk, relaxing at home, or even sleeping.
It’s called your resting metabolic rate (RMR), and you can increase it.
One of the surest ways is by building more muscle mass through strength training. Muscle can burn three to five times more calories than fat does. So the more muscle you have, the more calories you’ll burn—even when you’re staying perfectly still.
And you don’t need to invest much time. Working with weights for as little as 20 minutes two to three days a week can be enough to crank up your resting metabolic rate over time.
Here are some easy ways to add strength training into your life without feeling like you have to go to the gym and hoist the big barbells:Read More
How to Unlock Hidden Potential – Part 2
by Thomas Hadley
Blood, sweat and tears. You put your all into your craft. What happens when all your efforts still end in defeat? How does one find and unlock hidden potential in defeat? What good is there in it? Earlier this year, Super Bowl XLVIII set the best teams from each conference against each other. The final score: Seattle Seahawks 43 – Denver Broncos 8. What good resulted from this defeat for the Denver Broncos?
In last week’s post, I discussed finding potential in adversity. There are many types of adversity we face in life. Defeat is one of them. Where is the hidden potential in this particular type of adversity? Many great athletes hate losing more than they love winning. Their hatred of defeat seems to be stronger than their appetite for victory (I used to be that way). Oftentimes, that is looked upon as a good thing. However, this level of hatred toward defeat is counterproductive. Of course, we are not looking to lose in any area of life, whether it be in business, sports, or even a game of monopoly. But let’s face it, it is a part of every area of life if we are constantly seeking to improve ourselves.Read More
