How to Plan Ahead Using Logical Contingency Planning

Contingency planning is like playing chess. by Michael Corthell In business or government  or even in your personal life , it is never wise to put all of one's 'eggs in one basket'. It is therefore a good idea to develop a contingency plan.  ''Expect the unexpected'' is a wise dictate and it is the basis of smart living.  A contingency plan is often referred to as a 'Plan B'.  A ''Plan B'' is simply an alternative plan of action if what was expected to happen in 'Plan A' doesn't work out. Contingency planning is also one facet of business continuity, disaster recovery and risk management. It is part of plain old smart planning and common sense. ''An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.'' ― Benjamin Franklin Without a contingency plan, you could end up in a very depressing and negative situation, you might even be wallowing in your own despair if things don’t work out as y

Good Goals: Dreams with Deadlines

If you want to be happy, and fulfilled, choose goals that command your thoughts, liberate your energy and inspires your hope! by Michael Corthell Do you like setting goals? Many people set a goals for themselves and rarely achieve them because the goals are either too unrealistic or the time-line for reaching them is too short or there are too many goals in play at one time. Top-level athletes, successful business-people and achievers in all fields all set goals . Setting goals gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation. It focuses your acquisition of knowledge, and helps you to organize your time and your resources so that you can make the very most of your life. ''A Goal is a dream with a deadline.'' —Napoleon Hill Trying to ignore needed goals and objectives is like ignoring a hungry cat or crying baby. It just shouldn't be done. They both have to be fed and nurtured. There is a 'smart' way to go about it. Specific, M

[Goals] ...we don't always score touchdowns

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” ― Albert Einstein If you fail, accept it as a sign that your plans were not solid. Don't ditch your goal, redesign your plans.

Leaving Procrastination Behind

by Michael Corthell We set goals, but then we procrastinate. We write a to-do list, and then don't follow through. This happens time and time again. Wow, what's the problem? Many of us are really good at thinking about and planning what to do, but really awful actually doing those things. Why is that? ''Do not put your work off till to-morrow and the day after; for a sluggish worker does not fill his barn, nor one who puts off his work: industry makes work go well, but a man who puts off work is always at hand-grips with ruin.''     ― Hesiod There are a thousand and one ways to be unsuccessful in life, but the surest way just might be procrastination. Procrastinators sabotage their own plans. They lay down stumbling blocks for themselves. They actually choose ways to fail. Twenty percent of people identify themselves as procrastinators. Procrastination for them is a lifestyle ― a very maladaptive one. About procrastination:

[Planning] Playing your hand...

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” ― Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry We end up someplace else if we don't know where we're going. “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” ― Benjamin Franklin

Organize NOW


A Working Song in Harmony

Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up. — A.A. Milne Saying that you don’t have enough time is simply lame. You have exactly the same number of hours in a day that Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresea, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein and the rest of us. Three Rules of Work : Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity   —  Albert Einstein

Getting Organized

''For every minute spent in organizing, an hour is earned.'' ―Benjamin Franklin by Michael Corthell A place for everything, and everything in its place. How do you do that? Getting organized and staying that way makes for a better life―that is a fact. ''Organize your life around your dreams and watch them come true.'' Being More Organized Means: Less stress. You can Relax more. Spending more time with family. You're ready for about anything. That the overwhelming is manageable. You enjoy i mproved health. You're a better example for your children and others . You waste less time on little jobs. Greater productivity. When you have a many tasks, it's really easy to feel scattered and therefore stressed. If you're feeling burned out it probably means that you’ve lost sight of how to organize your time. Learning better ways to organize your mind is one of the keys to living stress-free
