What borrowed wisdom is worth thinking about?

"We practice the Art of Allowing. Which means reaching for the thought that feels best, not the thought that is the real thought, not the thought that is telling it like it is. Telling it like it is only holds you where it is: "Damn it, I'm going to tell it like it is. I'm going to tell it like it is, because everybody wants me to tell it like it is." Tell it like it is if you like it like it is. But if you don't like it like it is, then don't tell it like it is — tell it like you want it to be. If you tell it like you want it to be long enough, you will begin to feel it like you want it to be. And when you feel it like you want it to be, it be's like you want it to be."

— Abraham Excerpted from the workshop: Syracuse, NY on September 30, 2000

Why Should I have 10 Delicious Daily Habits?
If you don't put gas in your gas tank, your car cannot take you anywhere! The same is true of your body and mind. The bigger your goals, the more energy and focus you need to draw upon. How well are you taking care of yourself?

Some signs you aren't doing a good job
Do you:

  • Get sick frequently?
  • Have a hard time relaxing?
  • Eat unhealthy foods or irregular meals?
  • Have trouble sleeping?
  • Feel anxious, worried, stressed?
  • Have trouble focusing?
  • Just feel stuck?

How to Use This
This is not a list of more things to do! Create a list of activities that will “give back” energy. Drinking 8 glasses of water. Hugging a loved one, Watching the sunset. Spending 10 minutes outside. You get the idea!

Once you’ve made your list, do these things daily! (Hint: Don’t put “shoulds” on the list that you dread doing).

What Techie Tip do You need?

What does a good CRM have to do with it????
What is Contactually?

Like a CRM… only better.

Contactually is a contact and relationship manager that helps you stay in touch with the right people at the right time. It gives you many of the benefits of a traditional CRM system (contact organization, conversation history, and even sales tracking & automation) without the high cost, learning curve, or complexity.

Your everyday network is more valuable than you probably realize. Using Contactually is a fun, easy way to get the most from it without having to change the way you work.

Active and intelligent, not passive.

Contactually is much more than a list of customers and email addresses — it’s a complete system that allows you to connect the people you know to the goals of your business. Contactually helps you group and sort your relationships the right way, and then motivates you to stay connected to the ones that matter the most. It can even help you figure out what to say!

Bring order from chaos.

People love Contactually because it helps them consistently build better relationships, even when they’re managing a huge network of contacts. Contactually automatically aggregates accounts from different sources (email, calendars, social networks, databases, etc.) so you don’t have to constantly check multiple channels. As your network grows, Contactually’s built in automation and template tools help you grow with it, so you can enjoy the benefits of new connections without getting overwhelmed.

Focus on people, not tools.

Contactually keeps busy professionals from drowning in a sea of follow-ups and missed connections by keeping your focus on the real-life, human relationships that affect your business. You’ll spend less time figuring out who you need to talk to, or what you need to discuss, and more time connecting with actual human beings in a way that makes a real difference.

Business is about relationships, and Contactually helps you build better ones.

Joeann’s Tips on being more focused and full of joy

Joeann’s Rule of 3

  • At the beginning of each day, spend 5 minutes to focus on the 3 most important things for the day.
  • Choose these 3 things NOT from the squeakiest wheel but from your long term (12 mo or longer) goals
  • Put the 3 on some sticky notes at during the day come back to these each time you complete one thing and are ready to do something else. Post on your computer screen, car visor, bathroom mirror!
