First of all I want to blow a myth – TIME MANAGEMENT. We cannot MANGE time. We cannot MAKE time. We cannot SAVE time. The best that we can do, is manage what we do with the time that we have, to the best of our ability.

Are you planning something in the near future? Have you set proper goals for yourself or your business? Are you struggling with your goals? Read
Since this is such a personal expereicnce I thought I could share with you how I managed to break the barrier of my comfort zone today.These thoughts are simply to share with you the trickster things we can do to ourselves to achieve a POSITIVE outcome.

I love what I do! I predominantly help others learn, grow and grow through their learning. They say that trainers and sales people have similar traits. One of them (they say) is that of a need for validation. I say they are right (whoever they are).
