Reducing Stress

May 15th, 2013 No comments

"Much of the stress that people feel  doesn't come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they've started.

David Allen: Author on personal and organizational effectiveness 

 

"People often say that motivation doesn't last.  Well, neither does bathing – that's why we recommend it daily."

Zig Ziglar: Author and motivational speaker 

 

"Great minds discuss ideas;  average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.."

Motivation and Inspiration!

January 19th, 2013 No comments

There are few things more motivating than a truly fine live event. I've read great books and articles, watched great videos and have also listened to 'inspirational' and motivating audio.

But a good live event gives you the energy of the crowd as well as the speaker(s). It is like the difference between an dead restaurant and one that is buzzing with energy!

The most motivating thing you are likely to be able to do is to go to the Louisville Manufactured Housing Show! Starting with the special Pre-Show Get the Edge event on January 22nd, and moving onto the main show that runs from January 23 until midday on January 25th, you want to come early and stay late every day.


Here is your link to the main LouisvilleManufacturedHousingShow.com website:

Here is your link to the show brochure, including seminars, exhibitors, homes on display and much, much more!

Zig Ziglar once said words to the effect, sure, you need regular doses of motivation. You also have to shower or bathe regularly too! We will be in booth #115 at Louisville, because it motivates us to motivate good pros like you! ##

According to Simran Khurana of About.com, these are the Top 10 Inspirational quotes of all time.

~ Mark Twain

“In bed my real love has always been the sleep that rescued me by allowing me to dream.”
~ Luigi Pirandello

“Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
