I’ve written often about making time for the important things in your life and shifting from an “I don’t have the time” mindset to an “I didn’t make the time” one – not only because it’s a good way to look at the situation, but also because it’s true. We are all busy with the […]

I have been greatly influenced by the writing of Stephen Covey, the late author of Seven Habits for Highly Successful People. What I learned from his ideas have been very important for my time management. Essentially, his message, as explained by the first three of his seven habits, is this: Decide you have control over […]

I’ve written a number of times about making the time to do the important things in life. Rather than saying, “I didn’t do it because I didn’t have the time,” it’s more accurate to say, “I didn’t do it because I didn’t make the time.” (One example: Making time for exercise; a big challenge for […]

One thing that bothers most people, is the experience of not remembering why you just walked from one place to another—for example, walking from one room to another in your house, or from one part of your workplace to another. As we get older, we begin to worry if that means something about our brain […]

I was playing with words in my head earlier this year, as I often do, and the title of my book, Six Simple Rules for a Better Life, became “Six Better Rules for a Simple Life”. (I wrote about it in my monthly newsletter.) Simple things of all types appeal to me, so my mind […]

Making time for exercise is a big challenge for many people. Whether it’s about exercise or anything else, time management is about making time for your priorities. As I’ve written before, if someone says they don’t have time to exercise, I like to challenge them by explaining it’s not that you don’t have the time, […]

One of my daughters was telling me about a position she was considering running for at her sorority. She had already taken on a lot (and accomplished a great deal) during her college years—at her sorority and in general—and had, at times, been overextended. I wrote to her: “If you get this position, please be […]

Many years ago, my wife (Marcie) and I were presented with the idea of hiring a personal chef. It sounded like an odd idea—like something for the super-rich. But, we did some research, calling around to various places (this was before Google had become our go-to). We found a chef through a personal chefs association, […]

Judging by the comment cards, one of the most popular takeaways from my speeches is the concept of eating the big frog first as a way to conquer procrastination. I thought about it again when a couple of my family members returned to New York from Australia. I’ll explain that connection in a moment. I […]

I recently took an exercise class called, “Let’s Have a Ball.” For 50 minutes we did numerous exercises, every one of which made use of a large exercise ball. We did exercises for the arms, the legs, the chest, and more. I wanted to share this with you because I walked out of that class […]
