How to Connect: TCC Episode 41connect

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

~ Og Mandino, Author and Motivational Speaker

  • Connectedness
  • How to connect

Connectedness

Rule 10 of Og Mandino's 17 Rules for a Better Way to Live talks about our connection to others and how those connections could change your life. I have to agree, the connections I've made so far have helped transform my life for the good. I use a mathematical theory, called Game Theory, to define connectedness because it explores human/non-human interactions in order to achieve common goals.

In my business it's not about coffee but about the people I meet along the way. I have to appreciate Dr. Walker and my Organo Gold family who are like minded, want to reach for similar goals and be successful. Dr. Hamilton who want to see me succeed in business as well as completing my research.

For a future episode: Goals. Let's blog our goals.

For my dissertation the primary focus will examine connections to other students, instructors and the university with the students best interest in mind. Kelly (2003) stated that the purpose of game theory is to find optimal situations as well as situations in conflict in order to create cooperation and have the students best interests in mind. I felt disconnected and that no one on the inside cared about my success and just wanted my money. In my study, I will explore how social media and a cohort model that could be used to enhance connectedness for doctoral students during the dissertation process or online graduate studies.

How to connect

  1. Say Hello and Smile at everyone you come across
  2. Join an association or club related to an interest you have - Meetup.com
  3. Go to a seminar or convention - Project 50KOrgano Gold International Convention

Project 5K!

I am launching one of the largest projects of my professional career, Project 5K, it could mean a 6 figure income for the right person. Knowing what you know today about Starbucks if you had an opportunity to invest 10 years ago would you have done it? I am certain I found something Bigger.

I am excited in my company Organo Gold (OG). I first had the Gourmet Black coffee over a year ago. I loved the taste and felt amazing after that first cup. Organo Gold not only helped me physically but also financially. Financially, I have earned 5 of the 7 ways you can in the business and look forward to the other two. Physically, if you have been following my blog, I have now lost 105 pounds since June thanks to my coffee, capsules, personal development (the foundation of OG), and making a decision. Like OG I have my own 4 Steps:

  1. Make a decision - I made a decision to fit comfortably on a plane because I was challenged to race Ferrari's on the Autobahn in Germany.
  2. Personal Development - Changing my mindset to be happy, healthy and wealthy
  3. Be OG - which to me means being a total product of the product by not only drinking the coffee but also taking my spores everyday.
  4. Changed lifestyle (no diet) - I cut back on or totally eliminated breads, deserts, red meat, and fried food. I can eat those things although I choose not to. I made the change because I didn't ever want to count calories again. If it doesn't look or sound healthy I chose not to eat it. If I want something sweet I have a Mocha or Hot Chocolate.

Last Day First Day: TCC Episode 40regrets

Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find "tomorrow" on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats, and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, "If I had my life to live over again..." Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day!

  • Last Day
  • How to Make Your Last Day Your First Day

Last Day

I had a near death experience many years ago. My father was there to meet me before I went into the light. He told me that it wasn't my time and I had something to do. I realized that God or the Universe wanted me to just pick something to do to make a difference in the world. It took me a minute to figure it out.

What if you discovered that you only had minutes to live and the world was coming to the end. What would you do? Who would you call?

Willhite (2000) suggested that today is the first day and the last day of the rest of your life. There are no guarantees that tomorrow will come. Why not live as though today were the last day of your life. Would you live your life more fully?

Mandino suggested that, with so little time, there is no time to hate, gossip, or fighting only time to love, encourage, or finding joy. Willhite (2000) continued that we should all be busy doing and being that we have no time for anything but accomplishing good.

How To Make Your Last Day Your First Day

  1. Step outside your comfort zone - Face a fear, make a new friend, do something uncomfortable like public speaking or starting a blog
  2. Do something spontaneous - Start that bucket list and start doing some of them
  3. Tell someone you care about or love them - Whether they be a spouse, child, or a complete stranger
