December 2017 — How to Create a Life on Your Terms

The last month of the year is a natural time to assess where you are in life and whether the path you’re on is one you truly want — or one created by reacting to life’s circumstances. Creating a life on your own terms is possible. The key is to be intentional rather than to let your life unfold based on the priorities and desires of the people around you. If you don’t have a life plan where you strive to live according to your own terms, you merely enable someone else’s plan, living according to their terms. In this issue, I’ll share with you:

  • The benefits of living intentionally rather than reactively
  • How to know if you are living a life designed by others
  • A process for creating your life according to your own terms
  • How to implement this process, even if you aren’t totally sure what you want out of life

 

January 2018 — Strategic Time Management

We all have the same 24 hours to work with, but some people seem to get a greater payoff from those hours than others. The difference is not in the scheduling system they use but in how they invest their time — in other words, how they allocate time as a resource. A good strategy allocates resources to the important priorities while starving the unimportant ones. While this sounds good in theory, many people have difficulty executing this powerful approach with regard to time in daily life. In this month’s letter, I’ll explain:

  • How strategic time management can change the course of your career and your life
  • A method to determine which time demands are worthy of your investment — and which ones are okay to ignore
  • Why it’s so hard for many people to follow through on the choices they make using this method
  • Some techniques designed to keep your priorities on track
