Are You Hammering Your Way Through Life?

In Uncategorized on 2011/04/21 at 11:22 pm


Two weeks ago, my husband forwarded some classic quotes to me. Within the e-mail was the following quote: “When tempted to fight fire with fire, remember that the Fire Department usually uses water.” (Author unknown)

I love the quote, and it reminds me that we need to use the correct tools in order to solve problems and accomplish goals.  Every day I receive opportunities to participate in webinars that introduce tools and methods for me to reach my peak financial performance. I am presented with business opportunities that will secure my financial independence. I review nearly all of them, because there is generally a nugget of gold in their message. However, I really need to select my set of tools and commit.

After three months of offers, I am nearly dizzy from the array of opportunities and the schedule I’d need to keep to tune into everyone’s message. While I was writing a piece about goals last week, I tuned into my own advice: You cannot be all things to all people.  Prioritize. Commit.  And so I have selected three authors and their tools to help me get to the next level the remainder of 2011 to help me get the job done (along with my savvy business coach Sharon Michaels (who is also an author). Along with my coach, three authors are the sails of my ship on this journey: Rich German (author of Monetize Your Passion), Brendon Burchard (author of The Millionaire Messenger) and Rhonda Cort (author of 4 Figures An Hour) . So, I’ve selected my set of tools. I don’t expect any one tool to handle every challenge and opportunity that comes my way. To do so would be like using a hammer to drive in nails, open cans, unlock doors and tighten screws.

When you think about the tools you are using to achieve your greatest goals, forward your business plans or solve a mystery that’s kept you in the dark awaiting its solution, what tools are you using to get the job done?

I encourage you t get familiar and get intimate with the tools most appropriate to get you to the finish line and begin your quest!  And, if you need a bit of inspiration, you might find that my tools for inspiration may work for you, too.

As always, I welcome your comments and Make It A Great Week.
