Put in the big rocks first…
When Sunday rolls around it marks the end of the last week and beginning of the new week. I plan out my week to make sure I put in the big stones (events and priorities) first and then add some of the little pebbles (small tasks and routine chores).
But one thing I have started doing is motivating myself to try something new. Often times we get stuck in a rut. At least I know I do. Working day in and day out the routine feels tiresome. So today on my lunch break I grabbed a new magazine ‘Organic Spa’ that I have never seen before. It’s not on my list for today but I’m putting in my planned motivation break.
Are you curious about what a planned motivation break may be? A planned motivation break is where I give myself a little something to look forward to. A small gift or excursion to get myself motivated to finish the tasks and a way for me to try something new. That is part of my rule, trying something new to get me out of regular routine. It helps break up my usual schedule and gives me a fresh perspective on things when I get back to my regular tasks.
Here is a copy of my planned motivation gift. I skimmed through the magazine to make sure it was something that would actually motivate me to do those tasks on my list. Changing my lifestyle to accommodate organics is what I have chosen to do to cut down on my exposure to chemicals and toxicity. So I thought this would be a great way to find out some new information and stay in alignment with my lifestyle while providing a good motivation tool.

Jim Rohn one of the leaders in personal development says, and I am paraphrasing, that if you want to get better in business you have to get better, you have to work on you not your business.
I believe he is right. The best way to change your life if you don’t like the direction it is taking is to change yourself. Personal development is one of the best ways to move you forward in a positive direction. I read lots of books in the area of personal development. Usually I don’t sure this kind of information, but I realized that the more I share, the more space I make to replenish my own personal growth and I when receive feedback we create a cycle of sharing. It’s a win-win situation.
Today I received an email with a really great personal growth opportunity, and I want to share it with you. But first let me tell you about one of the books in this opportunity.

This is an affiliate link and I am sharing it with you to help you with your personal growth. I purchased this product because it is something that I know will help me.
Check back in the next few weeks, because I will do a book review on Chris Guillebeau’s book.
I plan to continue providing information that will help small business and freelance professionals and those aspiring to break away from the cubicle to get going in the direction of freedom. What are your favorite personal development books?
