There is a new documentary out about legendary television producer Norman Lear called Just Another Version of You. […]
What is it that holds us back from getting the results we want in business and in life? Sometimes it’s a secret saboteur that will continue to wreak havoc on our best laid plans if we don’t intervene.
Achieving desired results is a product of having the right mindset, taking actions consistent with that mindset, and having a process of follow-up or accountability. To do that, there are two important rules: you must know exactly what it is you want (your goal) and exactly how you are doing – at all times!
This is a concept we can all easily agree to, and yet we resist the actions necessary to turn the concept into reality. It can be especially hard for business managers to believe that “Playing the Game” works with grownups – until they give it a try.

Lately, I’ve been distracted by my rear view mirror. I can’t get into my car any more without glancing at it and recalling a passage I recently read in a book called Miracle Morning by Hal Erod. In it, Hal says one of the most crippling causes of mediocrity in life is a condition he calls Rear view Mirror Syndrome (RMS ).
Our subconscious minds are equipped with a self-limiting rear view mirror, through which we continuously relive and recreate our past. We mistakenly believe that who we were is who we are, thus limiting our true potential in the present, based on the limitations of our past.

My partner has a saying that helps me keep myself from getting caught up in the stress, drama and weighty-ness of work situations – “We’re not saving lives here.” It’s a great reminder that I don’t need to put too much stress on myself over the little things. Since I have stepped into my role at Best Year Yet®, I have a different perspective on that saying.
