The first thing you have to do is identify the worst or most out-of-control area of your life and start there. Finish this sentence, “If I were more organized I could…” and let that become your goal and your motivation. Write this down and post it somewhere you can see it every day. You may be motivated to have more quality time with your children, or have more time to yourself, or you may just want your house presentable enough to have company over, or organized enough to find what you need. So decide what you want. That’s the first step. Organized people are not afraid to make decisions and move on.
If your focus is on time management it’s important to organize your time from big to small, which means look at all you do in a given year. Write a list of all your big time commitments, then break it down by season. Then you can look at a month, a week and a day. You may find that you are doing one thing way too much and one way too little. Think about the balance between work and family, your kids and your spouse, your family and yourself. Plan activities that support your priorities, but don’t forget to leave yourself some down time. On a micro level, create morning and evening routines that help you operate efficiently. To keep up with all you have to do and want to do, routines are a must.
Why did I do it? Why did I tell the world? Why didn’t I just keep it a personal, private secret?
I certainly could have. Right? Most people wouldn’t want anyone to know. Most people would go to any length to hide it, and live in fear of anyone ever discovering their secret.
In this video I’ll tell you the reasons why I did not choose that path.
I have to admit… I’ve been stressing way too much. When it comes down to it, I just can’t help it! I mean what else can I do? If this sounds like yourself you are not alone. I over stress too and even dropped the ball about writing this article. I was even going to change careers to change my stress. But guess what… the too much stressing didn’t change my future it only made me ill. It took me taking a step back from the chaos and realizing just what damage I was doing to myself. I had to practice what I preached.
Half the size, twice the life
Back in 2002, She was 23 years old, about 19 stone (266lbs/120kg), UK dress size 26-28 and lost in miserable cycles of a non-existent love-life, uncontrollable overeating and complete denial. Her pride stopped her from discussing her weight with even her closest friends and if anyone tried to broach the subject with her, she strongly resented them for ‘interfering’.
Angela Stokes weight had steadily increased since her thyroid gland went under-active aged 11. By 16, she was 16 stone (224lbs/101kg) and her weight increased with her age, a stone a year, until by age 21, at her university graduation in 2000, she was 21 stone (294lbs/133kg). That was the heaviest she reached and when her health began to suffer so much that she thought she had diabetes, she knew this couldn’t continue.

Every nine and half minutes someone else is infected with the HIV virus.
Stop. Think about that for a minute. Someone is being infected right now as you read this.
It maybe someone you know.
December 1st, is “World AIDS Day”.
The day we remember that 33 million people in the world have HIV
Spread Awareness, not the virus.
Because if you are sexually active at all, it CAN happen to you. Before we can stop any epidemic, we first have to recognize the magnitude of the disease. HIV is still a threat across the United States. And even though there are treatments to help people with HIV live longer than ever before, AIDS is still a significant health issue. Surprised?
Here are some other surprising facts:

I get so many calls from frustrated women asking me why they just can’t understand their man.
Well, it takes one to know one. Men are a special breed and do not always function at the high intellectual nature of women. So here are some the top three things to really keep in mind when you are trying to figure out what he’s thinking.
On October 3rd, I was broadcasting live from the Palazzo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas before a live audience of wonderfully, wild silver haired, empowered women from the 47th floor in a 2,500 sq foot suite. Unfortunately, in the middle of the live show, the hotel’s front desk decided to cut our internet connection even though they were fully aware of our live broadcast.
They had been informed and arrangements had been made days prior to the broadcast.
None the less, we were able to get back on the air after a few phone calls and finish the broadcast. I am fully aware that the quality of this show is NOT to the standards that I strive to obtain.
That having been said, and so not to disappoint the ten of thousands who listen to my show each week, I am going to post this show anyway. I have received many messages from the attendees of the GGLG convention in search of this particular show. So it’s with bumps and bruises in mind, I give you what you have asked for.
I am greatly concerned by newspaper articles and television news reports urging people to get their flu shots early. The articles are almost always one-sided; presenting only the viewpoints of government health officials, pharmaceutical companies that manufacture flu vaccines, and drug stores that sell them. The tone is the same: get your flu shot or you could die.
As we’ve seen in previous years, people see these reports and needlessly run out to get vaccinated without knowing the facts about the flu or vaccines. And if this isn’t bad enough after last year’s fiasco of “the sky is falling” warnings, pharmacists and others who sell vaccines, along with public health departments that are supposed to inform the public about real health issues, are warning more people to get their vaccinations even earlier this year.
The facts are that flu vaccines have a negative impact on the health of people of all ages and the government knows it! Even the CDC’s own website about influenza and flu vaccine includes a section about who should not be vaccinated against season flu: including people who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination in the past, and people who developed Guillian-Barre syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine previously (www.cdc.gov/flu/keyfacts.htm). One of our primary national public health organizations says people can get Guillian-Barre syndrome from flu vaccines!
