Take Simple Actions

I just finished listening to Joel Osteen's book - Break Out!: 5 Keys to Go Beyond Your Barriers and Live an Extraordinary Life. The one big lesson I took from it was to take simple actions towards reaching your goals and you'll make it. One of my goals is to clog at least 3 times a week whether in book posts or just what's going on. In my blog post Day 30: Goals for 2014 I listed my goals today I'm picking a few to narrow my focus and energy:


  1. Graduate from Walden July 2014
  2. Finish my Dissertation and get it approved by May 30, 2014
  3. Go back to Thailand and teach a semester or two


  1. Become a Diamond Consultant in Organo Gold
  2. Create a new career as a professional speaker and author
  3. Get a good head shot for speaking, blog, podcast and social media


  1. Lose 100 pounds
  2. Get off blood pressure and cholesterol medications


  1. Self-publish some of my older works to get started in my writing career
  2. Relaunch my podcast
  3. Create a podcast network
  4. Become a paid full-time author
  5. Become a paid public speaker
  6. Create a platform to give back to the world
  7. Renew my hypnosis certificate
  8. Create a wellness center
  9. Publish my first of many novels
  10. Sell some of my screenplays

Travel and Fun:

  1. Do the Belgium beer tour
  2. Kiss the Blarney Stone (not sure why just because)
  3. Get back to music
  4. Learn to draw or paint

Here are some simple actions I can take on a daily basis that will get me to my goals:


  1. Spend at least 4 hours a day working on dissertation or other scholarly activities
  2. Read journal articles
  3. Prepare and conduct my study
  4. Write a few journal articles for publication


  1. Work out 3-4 days a week
  2. Say NO to the sweets
  3. Drink water & take Organo Gold Capsules


  1. Write blog posts at least 3 times a week
  2. Join a writing group
  3. Read more novels
  4. Write 15 minutes a day:
    1. on a new screenplay
    2. a journal article
    3. some short stories to better develop my craft
  5. Connect with a blogger who is bigger than me

Personal Goals: My goals are to complete my dissertation, graduating in July 2014, bring my Organo Gold business to the next level, get better at saying “no”, especially to those things that will not help me realize my goals, write more articles, finish a novel, and creating financial freedom.

Happy and Grateful Statement I am happy and grateful that I am a Diamond Consultant for Organo Gold coffee because I am able to be a good husband, father, son, brother, mentor, and author because I am able to have the freedom and time to write books and articles that entertain and inspire my readers in order to create positive social change.
