The grand vision and the great idea are overrated, it is the execution that counts here is a saying that it is better to be lucky than good, but is this true for entrepreneurs? I am interested in a related question: why do some entrepreneurs have only one big success and many failures while others succeed again and again? Over my career I have worked for and admired various entrepreneurs. Some have enjoyed a significant success but have never really been able to repeat it, while others have demonstrated an apparent “magic touch”: if they were made penniless tomorrow they would amass another million within a year. In some ways, of course, there is no substitute for luck, whether in business or any other walk of life.
Get Your Home Clean and Organized This Weekend I started going through my house room by room. I have a 3 bedroom house with a 2 car garage. The garage went first so that I could make room for the crap I needed to get rid of. When I started on a room, I picked a corner and worked in a clockwise manner around the room. If I found an item that didn't belong in that room, it got put into the proper room, but not put away until I cleaned that room. When I filled a box of things to get rid of, the box went to the newly cleaned garage.

The 4-Step Plan to Never Procrastinate Again Ever known you should do something right now, but you can't muster the will to get started? You know the longer you put off a task, the more likely it'll be done hastily (sloppy work, #sorryboutit) or not get done at all (oops, another skipped workout!). Many of us have been there. Having a task looming over us can make us feel anxious, nervous, or agitated, and in the interest of gaining immediate rewards, we procrastinate in order to feel good in the present. When we put off today what we can do tomorrow, we’re setting an intention based on the idea that a task will be more appealing or feel more do-able at some time in the future than it is right now.
How To Get Organized: Printables & Checklists To Help You Get Started There's a good way to figure out how to get organized -- use printables and checklists to keep you on track. Each person, family and home is unique so lists will only get you so far, but they are a great way to get started, to reference when you need ideas, and to get you back on track if you start to get disorganized. The printables and checklists I've provided will also help you brainstorm ideas for how to use various spaces in your home, and where to store certain items to get the most use out of the space you've got. Many of these printables can be combined into one book, called a "household notebook," which I suggest you personalize to fit your family's routines, schedules, wants and needs. It can be a working manual to keep your house organized and your family life on track.
