If You Want to Get a Hit, You Need to Step Up to the Plate

(Personal Accountability)

Based on Tom’s motivational book, “Stepping Up to the Plate” the question people always ask is, “How can I achieve greater results?” The answer is simply, “Get into the game.” It doesn’t do any good to ‘sit on the bench’ and complain, point the finger, or procrastinate. The way to get more done, and to accomplishment your goals, is to keep “running the bases” by Knowing About It; Caring About It; Figuring it Out, and Making it Happen.

You Can't Get What You Want Until You Give Up What You Got

(Personal Change)

Life is like swinging on a trapeze. You must first let go of the one you are one before you can grab on to another one. However, fear is a stifling de-motivator. The Challenge of Change is letting go of that fear by modifying the “erroneous beliefs” that keep you stuck. Whether in business, personal, or family life, “change is the only constant.” Managing that Change means adapting a more pro-active approach to life and checking your “old baggage” at the door

The 'Hurrieder' You Go, The 'Behinder' You Get

(Time and Life Balance)

The old Amish expression reminds us that “slow is quicker” and “less is more.” Like a 1 year old child learning to walk, the faster we go, the greater the chance that we might lose our balance and fall down. Life requires planning, plodding and probing. We need to take time to have time, and we need to “unplug” to be more “empowered” long term. Applying the principles of Time and Stress Management improves your personal productivity and inter-personal effectiveness.

PERFORM at Your Peak

(Based on Tom's 7 Factors That Contribute For Peak Performance)

What are the questions that employees at all level in an organization have on their minds? Finding the answers to those questions helps to build a positive work environment that ensures success in any endeavor. Those answers can be found in the 7 Factors for Peak Performance: Purpose, Expectations, Relationships, Feedback, Orientation, Rewards and Morale. A manager or any individual contributor must utilize these factors in order to achieve results.
