Get Up and Make It Happen

I am sure you are considering whether I am as far gone as people thought the first time I ran this blog. Here it is, near the end of a week, and I am talking about getting excited and making things happen. I’m sure somebody is trying to find the phone number so they can call Mrs. Balof and ask her to please take my temperature.

I want to assure everyone that I’m fine, and yes, I do believe it is time to get excited. We have over two and a half months left this year, and at the end of each month, there will be parties and revelry. I believe in parties and revelry. They are a positive influence on the soul. However, it gives us little time to do great things of wonder.

If you have ideas and new items that you want to share with others, now is the time to do it. Look at today As the first of a thirty-day month.  Get out a sheet of paper and divide it into thirty blocks, five rows and seven columns should do good.  Now you have a brand new calendar for thirty days. For the rest of the year, we only have eighty-four. It may not be enough time to build Rome, yet, still enough time to do some good things. If we want a win, starting now, we have a new day and a better way. Think of all the positive actions you could take with this.

Remember, if your first thought is going back into bed and pulling the covers over your head, once the day is over and you’ve done great things, you can do so. Until you have gotten something underway, it is time to figure out what you’re going to do and how you will complete that mission.

It would be wrong for me to tell you how you had to do something because this is your dream. Look at me as the cheerleader urging you on, encouraging you to find your path and take it. There are plenty of things that could come up and try to deter you from your work, and some of them are important. However, please don’t let the minutia get between you and your victory.

Do not think that I am pushing you out the door towards a day’s work and then trying to sneak back to the La-Z-Boy lounger myself. I am knee-deep in launching my new course and am building a Black Friday surprise for everyone.  I need all this up and in the field by the second week in November.  Am I a mean old master sergeant? I don’t even cut myself any slack. Please email me from time to time and ask me how my work is going.

Thanks for being with me today. I hope to be with you again soon.

Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force.
