Here’s what brain research says will make you happy:

  • “What am I grateful for?” Just asking -searching helps; you don’t need answers!
  • Label -name negative emotions. Your brain isn’t so bothered  when you name it.
  • Decide. No perfectionist thinking – good enough usually is!
  • Hugs, hugs, hugs.  Research shows getting five hugs a day for four weeks increases happiness big time.

  1. Learn EFT to overcome obstacles and discover what they may be if you do not know.Image
  2. Prioritize and set a realistic time limit for tasks to be completed relatively in the near future.     Work  backwards from  the deadline  date.
  3. Tackle least favorite tasks first. You will feel more focused, accomplished and  a burden lifted.
  4. Ask for assistance or even delegate it if you can.  Asking for assistance a sign of accountability, a very desirable trait in the workplace.

"To get something done is an accomplishment.

To get something done right is an achievement.

Aim for success, not perfection!

The tragedy of life isn't not reaching your goals.

The tragedy lies in not having written goals to reach.

Behind every successful person are many failures.

Believe in unlimited potential.

There will never be a better time to begin than right now.

The first person who has to believe in you is you!

Failure is only an opportunity to begin again more intelligently.

If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity."

Give yourself permission to change your mind and prioritize differently- in life and in business.  I’ve been working with entrepreneurs and small business owners in the current economic climate and there are new rules.  You can overcome anxiety and angst while reaching realistic  goals when you take  time to access what you have in front of you, take a break and re-evaluate. http://balanceandpower.com/stress.php
Sometimes  it’s indicated to release a project or detail in the pursuit of the big picture.  Procrastination and perfectionism can be “time vampires-bandits-thieves-robbers”  so I recommend being on the look-out for them and conquering related issues.

You may call-email me for a complimentary 20 minute consult to “SOAR! with Resilience” towards  peak performance, goal setting and happiness and to learn about how EFT can help with goal setting and actualization.

I’ve been viewing PBS : The Buddha”.  It’s a wonderful narrative-visual with intelligent modern people coming on to comment and Richard Gere in charge.  Interesting and not surprising that today blah-blah-blah  and I said “I’m not perfect, you know” and Mom said 1/2 in jest- “I thought you are”. Huge aha!  I’ve known  this “all along” and to have it reinforced on the same day via media is wonderful.

Being judgemental is about expecting perfection.  Being non-judgemental is the opposite.

An attitude of “expecting pefection” from anyone – even yourself- breeds judgement.
Zen philosophy teaches no expectations- detached from outcome=no judgement.
