Frantic. That’s how I used to feel all the time. Like there was no room to breathe. Anyone who’s known me for years will tell you that balance was a struggle for me. Sometimes it still is. I’ve searched hard for equilibrium, and I’m still a work in progress, but I do feel a lot more peaceful these days.

One thing that has helped me is the work of Michael Hyatt, with whom I am now an affiliate. I just took his Lifescore Assessment and it was really eye-opening.

I was not surprised to see that “Finances” are an area I need to zero in on, but I was surprised that one of my low areas is “Avocation.” Writing’s not a hobby for me, and I give it plenty of time. But singing? Playing the violin? I miss those things, so I’m going to have a look at that.

For a limited time, the Lifescore Assessment is available for free.

Why don’t you give it a try and then leave a comment about what you discovered?

It takes less than 10 minutes (it took me 3-5)

All you do is quickly rate yourself in each of
life’s major domains.

You read a series of statements that describe
specific situations and pick the one that most
closely aligns with where you perceive yourself to
be. Then you give yourself a numeric score.

The tool then calculates your score in each
domain, adds them together, and gives you an
overall LifeScore.™

P.S. Go take the assessment now while it’s still
free.  You’ll appreciate the clarity you get

I remember the day my friend, Tina Chen showed us the cover of her gorgeous new novel: a lush, moving story written by a generous soul. Her success (and the book was award-winning) was well-deserved. And I was JEALOUS.

Jealousy’s not a regular thing for me. Usually my friends’ successes give me hope. So this unwelcome green-eyed monster growled a question: Jealous of what? I knew I could publish. But I had given up on publishing a novel; I didn’t think I could finish. What Tina had that I believed I didn’t was follow-through. When she set a goal–even a complex one–she accomplished it.

Not long after, I DID finish my first novel. (Good thing I explored that jealousy.) And while I was learning promotion, I discovered former publishing CEO Michael Hyatt, who now trains leaders. I’ve been using his work ever since, and it has helped me immeasurably with organization, focus, goal-setting–all of that stuff I thought Tina could do, but I couldn’t. (Turns out I can!)

Now I get to be one of Michael’s affiliate partners. This is new for me, and I’m genuinely excited. (I mean really genuinely, not just ad-copy genuinely.) I want to share this FREEBIE with you, because 2017 is sneaking up on me, and maybe on you, too.

I love this (free!) PDF download. I was taking notes on it last night and sticking them in my calendar–until I realized I was basically copying the whole book:

In it, 30+ well known influencers all share the most
important thing they do to launch a banner year.

It’s a who’s who of successful people — Tony Robbins,
John Maxwell, Dave Ramsey, Chalene Johnson, and Andy
Andrews, plus more than 20 leaders.

Check it out (at no cost) here:


P.S. This free PDF is a wealth of wisdom to kickstart 2017. If you’ve felt stuck for a while–or your successful friends are making you jealous–don’t miss it:
