Have you undervalued what you have achieved over the last 10 years?

For many of us, life is often filled with ‘stuff’ to do.

We are always racing from one thing to the next and even if we have a moment to sit down for a meal, our mind is racing off and we end up checking emails or browsing Facebook.

The worst thing is when you go home to read your children a bedtime story; instead of savouring the precious time you have with your kids, you are trying to race through the pages or worse is if you end up skipping pages in order to get to the end quicker.

Have you experienced the above? I know I certainly have been guilty of this on many occasions.
Have you ever heard of the quote from our friend Bill Gates?

“Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.”

Would you work in the same business even if you don’t get paid?

I would!

My dream is to bring happiness to 500 million people by the year 2020.

It’s a lofty goal and a lot of people ask me: How are you planning to achieve it?

There are many ways to go about it but since I’m clear about what my goal is, I ask myself a specific question whenever I’m about to do something: Is this activity consistent with my overall goal?

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been fortunate enough to be invited to speak at two of the best business educational programs in Australia: Dale Beaumont’s Business Blueprint and The Entourage’s Scalable and Saleable program.

How Julia Gillard Can Become A Better Leader

I had the privilege of meeting Julia Gillard on her last night as Prime Minister. Julia did a great service for women by breaking the highest glass ceiling left in Australia. If she was able to make it to the top, there are no excuses for anyone to say it is not possible to move up.

Happiness – Staying True to Your Core Values

In this life, we all strive for happiness. Some set the goal of achieving happiness through their work, some through their relationships; others spend a lifetime searching for the key to happiness when in reality it has been within them all along. Perhaps, to be truly happy you have to accept and appreciate who you really are. Knowing what your core values are and living by them makes attaining happiness much easier.

Leadership – Enhancing Creativity, Taking Ownership

When I think about the roles of managers, I reflect on the processes of the “top to bottom” approach of driving a team. In the past, the typical structure of a company was based on a hierarchy system that did not encourage employees to take ownership of their roles. This structure can lead to a decrease in creativity in your staff as well as diminishing their personal empowerment. This regimented hierarchy system is limiting and creates stagnation in companies. When you empower people who to take ownership of their role and be proactive in leading themselves and the team to success, you create strong productive leaders. Take the example of Mark Shapiro and how he turned the Six Flags Amusement Park chain around.

Power to the People – Why Success Is In the Hands of Your Staff, Not Management

Bureaucracy, red tape, delays and having to run everything through a succession of managers. It’s amazing that any work gets done these days! There are far too many organisations that have numerous management layers. Instead of promoting efficiency, it leads to confusion and lack of productivity. Team members are given a task and told to concentrate on it without any clue as to how it fits into the company’s overall goals. I learned long ago that layers of hierarchy only led to reduced efficiency which is why we have completely eliminated management structure and have instead created a workplace environment at E-Web Marketing that team members love. Here is how you can follow suit.

How to Emulate the World’s Happiest Country in the Workplace

America has dominated the global economic landscape for a long time so it’s only natural that entrepreneurs in Australia and around the world would seek to emulate American work practices. While some of the techniques they use will help you accumulate more money, it appears as if they won’t do much for happiness in the workplace! American organisations have been accused of fostering a working environment laden with stress, anger and sadness and too many companies in Australia have followed suit.

5 Ways to Keep Employees Happy

When we think of ways to keep team members happy, it’s easy to get carried away with ‘perks’. For example, Google’s corporate headquarters is famous for providing perks such as massages, medical care onsite and dry cleaning. While these are excellent benefits to have, when Google interviewed their employees, it found that team members valued things like having managers that took a genuine interest in the lives of their staff and being allowed to express themselves creatively.

Are You Successful in Life?

What kind of person would you consider as somebody who is successful in life? For many people, the first stereotype that comes to mind is the successful businessman with a lot of financial freedom. What if this successful businessman worked around the clock and didn’t have time to foster deep relationships with other people or even look after his own health? Would you still consider this person as somebody who is successful in life?
