Smile First and Then the Sweat (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 248)

Smile First and Then the Sweat

“Power means happiness; power means hard work and sacrifice.”
— Beyonce Knowles

Work, by definition, is hard. Very, very hard. After all, it is a curse. It was never meant to be so tedious, laborious, or painfully egregious. But yet it is and we all have to submit to its direction. It probably shouldn’t be this way, but a large part of who we are and what we become is defined by what we do — our work. Our days are ordered around work. Work, no matter how much we don’t like it, comes first and foremost, above and beyond anything else we want to do. Read more…

Stop the Busyness, Be Productive (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 105)

Stop the Busyness Be Productive

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #14)

“It is not enough to be industrious; so are the ants. What are you industrious about?”
— Henry David Thoreau

Busyness and productivity can look like the same thing on the surface, but deep inside they are vastly different. Many people think busyness equates to productivity, but it really doesn’t.

Busy people rarely have serious time to think and reflect on their day. They move from one thing to the next, and are always telling themselves they can’t do this or that right now.  Read more…

How to Handle Getting Fired (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 75)

How to Handle Getting Fired

“I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.”

No one exactly sets out to get fired. But once in a lifetime, it happens. For whatever reason, we may lose a position, lose a project, lose a job, or lose an entire career. Sometimes, it’s not our fault, but most times it is. Getting fired is both painful and embarrassing. If you don’t have a back-up plan, it stops income, maybe hurts a few loved ones, and shakes our confidence and sense of purpose. It pushes us back on our heels and forces us to do some soul-searching and thinking. Read more…

Finding Satisfaction


How do you define satisfaction? When we think of satisfaction, many of us think of reaching goals at work, material possessions, money, or even power. We often link our success to satisfaction and vice-versa. We are quick to compare ourselves to others and their status in our community or in society. If we don’t climb the corporate ladder or make a lot of money or have the finer things in life, we think of ourselves as a failure. Read more…

Purpose Is Doing What You Love


What do you love to do? This question gets tossed about much like a rag doll does. Underneath the surface of this question, however, is really finding out what you were made to do. We don’t necessarily love everything we do. There are many people who would say there job is mandatory, vital for the well-being and sustenance of themselves and their family. If they had a choice, these people would more than likely be doing something else – something that they love. Read more…
