Happy New Year – #Change Your #Habits in 2015

It’s a new year and most everyone comes up with a list of resolutions that may or may not be kept.  My biggest goal is to really, really get out and exercise more, as suggested in this article:

Thank you, thank you Day-Timer for offering this product as “Book Only” – I was so tired of paying the higher price for the “kit” and throwing away the plastic box each year.

With popular calendar and scheduling apps on smart phones and tablets to compete with, Day-Timer gained my business back this year!

PS – The free shipping offer was also greatly appreciated.

Because I Said I Would | One

September 6, 2014 was the premiere event of Because I Said I Would | One.  if you’ve not heard of this organization and the promise cards that they have distributed to millions, here is an excerpt from their web site:

Because I said I would | ONE is an inaugural event supporting the betterment of humanity through promises made and kept. This event will tell moving stories of human perseverance through main stage speakers and a range of one-of-a-kind exhibitions. Event attendees will also be able to share their own promises stories in a number of ways, including video recordings that will be turned into a year-long YouTube series. Join us in Columbus, Ohio on September 6th, 2014 and help us show the world the power of ONE.

You can request promise cards to be mailed to you or print your own.

Make a promise to yourself or someone in your life … make a difference.

Personal Improvement: Public Speaking

Life is full of opportunities and being ready to take advantage of them sometime requires preparation. For example, would you be able to make that important presentation when the time comes? Plan ahead, make an effort to improve your ability to speak in public or in the work place.

Over on Lifehack, there’s a good list of “10 Things You Can Do Now To Make Public Speaking Effortless.”

There are groups that specialize in helping people become better public speakers. Look for a local chapter of Toastmasters International and pay a visit to one of their meetings. Who knows, it might be fun!
