An Antidote For Regret So You Can Be Present Now

Was out with a couple of our boys earlier today and created this “Quantum Moment” on a quick “antidote” for regret – a simple yet powerful practice that can allow you to let go of the past so it no longer robs you and those around you of the present.

In the following 2 minutes I give quick examples of how you can apply this in business and in life.  Enjoy, and feel free to share your own insights, experiences, or questions in the comments below!

P.S.  For daily “Quantum Moments” like this you can catch me “live” Monday – Saturday mornings at 9am Eastern Time on my Facebook page.

What’s On Your “Intention List” Today?

Today I have two questions for you that can significantly impact your effectiveness and enjoyment of today as you create a life you love:

1) What’s on your “intention list” today?

By “intention list”, I’m actually referring to something different from your “to do list”. Your “to do list” may include all kinds of tasks, major and minor, that you have on your list to get done, but your “intention list” refers to the “big things”, the most important things that you want to sow in your business, your health, your relationships, your life today to have a fulfilling day and move your life forward.

Perhaps it’s a blog post or video you want to create, 3 new connections or appointments you want to set, or a key meeting or presentation you have today.

On a personal note, it may be a walk or connection time with a loved one — your spouse, partner, son, or daughter; dinner together as a family; or reading to your kids before bed.

What are the few “big things” that you really want to sow today to create a fulfilling day?

Put these on your “intention list” — and ideally set a time or at least a segment of your day when you plan to carry out each intention.

You can always adjust as you go through your day, but it will make a big difference to be clear on your intentions and have an initial plan for when you’ll accomplish them.

Otherwise you have more of a “wish list” than an “intention list”. 🙂

Next to assist you with choosing what to put on your “intention list”, here’s the second question:

2) What would be “enough”?

See yourself at the end of today — looking back on today, what key actions, accomplishments, or experiences — what key sowing — would actually be “enough” and feel good when you reach the end of your day?

This is key from two perspectives: first, it helps you clarify what really is important to you today and second, it helps you decide ahead of time what would be “enough” so you can actually feel good as you navigate your day and particularly when you wrap up your day tonight.

Otherwise we have a tendency to just keep going from task to taskt to task, always having more to do, and never feeling at peace.

So practice these two questions today:

1) What’s on your “intention list” today?

and

2) What would be “enough” so you could feel happy and fulfilled at the end of your day?

Feel free to share one or more of your answers in the comments below, and here’s to creating today as the next step in creating a life you love!

Fun Video Montage from Paris

For those of you who might enjoy this “personal” glimpse of a business from home that can expand internationally, here’s a video montage I put together from my first trip to Paris & Lyon a few years ago, experiencing the gift of a business that opens up connections with people we might otherwise have never known, with wonderful places and experiences and the ability to touch many lives…and be touched by them.

This is the kind of fun, freedom, and experience I’m passionate to assist you to create as well.

How To Create Your Future — “Future Letter” Exercise

Are you seeking to create another level of excellence, achievement, business growth, or other “results” in the coming year?

Here’s an intriguing exercise I discovered in the Zanders’ book The Art of Possibility that I applied to the business arena — and the experience was very profound and personal. It’s a whole new way to look at goal-setting for the coming year, and can complement the more “traditional” methods, bringing your whole being, and who you want to become, into play.

Those I’ve shared this “future letter” exercise with have found it inspired them to write their own letter. So now I’m sharing this intriguing exercise with you.

Enjoy creating your own future, and who you’re choosing to become this year, and feel free to share your own experiences, results, or a link to your own video in the comments below.

I look forward to hearing from you!
