[SPECIAL VIDEO MESSAGE]
You CAN Find the Time You Need to Reach Your Goals

When was the last time you said you did not have time to do something? Right, probably in the last day or so. We all have fallen victim at one time or another to creating such busyness that certain things, important things, fall off our radar.

People often ask me, in my line of work as a coach, how to better manage their time. I often will simply tell them to first work on a list of what is most important to them and remind them that they only have one shot at this life.

You see, many times we lose sight of what our priorities are, and our daily, monthly, even yearly activity does not support our deepest and most important priorities.

On Father's Day, I always reflect on how my Father would view me and my life, and this year I chose to share a bit of my reflection with you because I realized it has everything to do with what I just talked about above.

I think such reflection is critical as you continue to go to WAR with yourself in deciding how much effort to put into creating the writer’s life and why.

You can create the life you want. And I wish you well on your quest …

  2. I'm moved by this message and encouraged to keep going. It's taken awhile, but this is my year. Thank you for the vulnerable words to reach our hearts. Your wife and children are blessed.

  5. I've been singing "The Impossible Dream" since High School when I committed it to memory. My mother often asked me to sing it for her A Capella. With this attitude and faith in God, I have accomplished some wonderful things in my life.

    I believe I am ready to start earning a living as a writer and I'm hoping that being connected to your organization will help me find the way.

    I've always known that people want to read what I write. I just don't know how to earn money for it. I'm hoping that's the piece of the puzzle you can help me find.

    Thank you for your help. I look forward to more.
