Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is really great work.  -Steve Jobs

On this Labor Day in the United States, I thought it made sense to send a relevant quote.  And I was reminded of Steve Jobs’ commencement speech to the 2005 graduating class at Stanford University.  “And the only way to do great work is to love what you do,” he explained.  “If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking.  Don’t settle.  As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it,”  he continued.  Steve Jobs was the co-founder of Apple Computers and led the company in pioneering technologies until his death in 2011.

This week, I encourage you to consider your work.  And what steps can you take to be satisfied that you are doing “really great work?”

Enjoy a happy and productive week!

You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. -John Maxwell

“What are you preparing for?  Are you grooming yourself for success or failure?” asks John Maxwell in Maxwell on Leadership.  “You see, success doesn’t suddenly occur in someone’s life. For that matter, neither does failure.  Each is a process. Every day of your life is merely preparation for the next.  What you become is the result of what you do today.  In other words…You are preparing for something.”  John Maxwell is a best-selling author, coach and speaker  and was named the #1 leadership expert in the world by Inc magazine in 2014.

This week, I encourage you consider “what are you preparing for?”  And identify one change you can make to move you in the direction of greater success.

Life is a choice.  It is YOUR life.  Choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly.  Choose happiness.  -Bronnie Ware

In her essay, the Regrets of the Dying, author Bronnie Ware, while working in palliative care, spent the last three to twelve weeks of their lives with patients.  “When questioned about any regrets they had or anything they would do differently, common themes surfaced again and again,”  she wrote.  She continued, “Here are the most common five:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me…

2. I wish I hadn’t worked so hard…

3.  I wish I had the courage to express my feelings…

4.  I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends…

5.  I wish I had let myself be happier…

This week, I encourage you to “choose consciously, choose wisely, choose honestly.  Choose happiness.”

Enjoy a happy and productive week!

To live a life of excellence, you will have to take risks.  You will have to step into new territory and climb new mountains.  -Debbie Ford

“If you’re up to something that’s as big as you are, it’s going to be scary.  If it feels perfectly safe, you are probably underachieving,” wrote Debbie Ford in The Best Year of Your Life:  Dream It, Plan It, Live It.  Debbie Ford was an expert in the field of personal transformation and a best-selling author of nine books.

“To leave your mark in the world, you will have to stand some place you’ve never been willing to stand before.  And you will have to have the courage to aspire to excellence,”  continued Ford.

This week, I invite you to explore your willingness to take risks.  And are you willing “to step into new territory and climb new mountains” in order “to live a life of excellence?”

Enjoy a happy and productive week!
