What are you passionate about?

April 6, 2012

In a quest to help some friends, I want to get feedback from you…

What are you passionate about?  How did you learn what that was?  Are you doing work that matters?  Do you love what you do?  What motivates you?  Will you share with me your story?

Keys to Achieving Your Goals

January 9, 2012

Another year and another set of resolutions. If you’re like most Americans, you’ll probably forget your goals by mid-February. So how do you make your resolutions actually happen this year?

First, keep in mind that goals are dreams; but don’t stop at just dreaming. Turn your dreams into bite-sized pieces that will gradually create a big event in your life. If you’re waiting on an outside variable to change your life, you have a long wait. You have to do something. It’s your responsibility to fix your life, not someone else’s. It’s time to sit down, make some goals, and take control.

Goal setting is how you win. Once you’ve made your resolutions, they will drive you forward. The goals will motivate you to seek activities that will help you succeed. It’s not always fun, but those exercises bring you closer to your goal and make you a winner.

If you want to actually achieve your goals this year, then consider the following:

1.Be specific.

When setting goals, be specific in what you want to achieve. Vagueness will only cause you to feel overwhelmed, and you will just give up.

2.Make your goals measureable.

In order to know if you achieved the goal, it must be measurable. For example, if you want to lose weight, don’t simply write down “lose weight” as a goal. How much weight do you want to lose? Or don’t just write “spend more time with family.” How much time do you want to spend with your family every night?

3.Are they your goals?

Only you can set your own goals. If your spouse, co-worker or friend sets a goal for you, you’re not going to achieve it. Taking ownership will give you more incentive to meet your goal.

4.Set a time limit.

Setting a time frame will help you set realistic goals. For example, if you want to save more money, list how much money a month you want to put into your savings account.

5.Put them in writing.

Putting your goals in writing will make you much more likely to achieve them. Write down your goals and review them often. This will give you motivation to make them a reality.

This is the process to succeed. Successful people reassess their lives and then start living intentionally, in writing, on paper, on purpose. Make your resolutions a reality in this year!  What are your goals for 2011? Leave a comment below.  Check out Dave Ramsey’s resources to help you achieve your financial goals.

[2012] Business Goals

January 2, 2012

It has been harder this year for me to come up with what I want in my business goals.  Some years, this is easy, this year with the horrific challenges being faced by my industry, I have had little time to reflect and focus on my plan.  I may revise this at a later date, but in order to get my post out…I will go with what I have decided is the focus of 2012:

  • Increase the number of Blog posts written each week from 3 to 4, include more than just information, tips, and motivation…make it more personal with stories and real life examples
  • Meet twice  a month with a Strategic Business Partner to share ideas, brainstorm and encourage one another
  • Resolve to delegate more tasks to my employees and eliminate the 6 Day Work Week
  • Increase Business by 25%
  • Schedule and perform 5 speaking engagements

What are your goals for 2012?

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!

January 1, 2012

Aspirations for 2012

December 30, 2011

Aspiration ~

  1. a hope or ambition of achieving something
  2. the object of such an ambition; a goal

As we bring 2011 to a close, I want to spend some time thinking about what we accomplished that was in line with Our Vision, Our Mission, and the Service we provide to Our Clients.  I want to continue to seek God and let His ways be what guide my path, so that I trust and follow His plan, not mine.  As the owner of Medical Account Solutions, I want to learn, I want to improve, I want to be better than I am today.  It is my goal for me and my team to serve you.  This includes our friends, our networking connections, our clients and their employees in a manner that is helpful, full of teaching, encouraging, and pleasant.

As you reflect on 2011 and what your goals are for 2012, if there is anything we can do differently, better or more of so that you are successful, we want each of you to have a successful year in 2012!  May you be blessed as we have been blessed!

Start 2011 with a Clean Slate

January 3, 2011

Management guru Peter Drucker always recommended that you examine every part of your business regularly to determine if there is anything you are doing now that you wouldn’t do again if you could start over.

What if you did this Zero-Based planning for your LIFE? If you could wipe the slate clean on January 1st, and look at your life in this way, what would you change? The real hallmark of truly successful people is not that they do more but that they can decide what they are going to stop doing. What are you going to Stop Doing on January 1st?

And you’ll see that planning for success means more than just having a great job or making lots of money. Make sure you plan for success physically, spiritually and in your family relationships as well. Decide what you want your life to look like next year.
