4 Things Experts Do to Learn Faster Than You

Let’s learn how to play Bizaroo. The fictional game invented by me, five minutes ago. How would you start? Your first attempt would naturally be followed by immediate failure and maybe amused laughter from experienced onlookers. We would then probably say,”Wow! It’s hard”, followed by a healthy dose of self deprecation. From there we would seek some help, and it would definitely be useful. As long as you don’t have some serious mental handicap, most people would experience a lot of initial growth. Then eventually a plateau. More than likely a plateau that lasts most of their lives.

“Make a budget” is one of the most often repeated personal finance tips but, just like “eat more greens”, very few of us actually follow it even though we know it’s good for us. The reason, of course, is that unless you’re someone who gets an adrenaline shot from juggling numbers, odds are that even the thought of sitting down and writing down a monthly budget is giving you a panic attack. I know, because I’ve been where you are.

Budgeting may be hard, but living within it is even harder. Luckily, […]

Ten Tips for Life That I Learned Coaching Softball

As a softball coach and parent, I give softball advice to parents, coaches and players in person and on my Softball Journey blog. In my recent article, “Top Ten Tips for Players at Tryouts,” I noticed the parallel between softball and life in general. Proponents of youth sports have always suggested that players learn valuable life lessons from sports. However, many do not elaborate what those lessons might be. Using the softball points from the blog, I’ll show how they relate to tips for success in life. 1. Dress Like a Ball Player – Present yourself professionally and appropriately for all occasions. Look sharp at your day job. Working at home in your pajamas is fine, but when the time comes to meet with a […]

8 Candid Reasons Drug Companies Won’t Fix Your Health Problems

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” – Ian Maclaren Are you waiting for someone smarter than you fix your problems? I was, but I have come to the conclusion that it’s not going to happen. I go to bed every night wondering what the next day will be like. I’m wasting away. My legs are all but useless. Raising the white flag and hoping for a “Die Hard” style rescue isn’t practical. I would love to think that “they” will come up with a weight loss solution that works, cure cancer, or stop my disease – multiple sclerosis. They won’t. They can’t. The system is set up to fail. I can try to figure it out for myself or wither […]

You aren’t satisfied with your life because you’re not getting everything you want out of it. You’ve figure out what you need to change to move you closer to the amazing life you want. And you know it’s possible because other people have done it. But every time you get close to making the change, a little voice in your head pops up and says: “Come on, you’re not the kind of person that does this.” “That’s reserved for people that won some kind of cosmic lottery. People that are far more naturally gifted than you.” “Just because some extraordinary people have done it, doesn’t mean you can do it.” “You are normal. Your life needs to stay on the normal path.
