You can Write that Book and Live your Dream Life!

03 Jun 2020 | Posted Under Writing

I am not usually at a loss for words, but what has been going on in the U.S. this week is heartbreaking to me, and for the most part, I have been silent until now. I simply didn't know what to say. I have read what some of my colleagues so eloquently had written and felt like I could not say it any better.

I wondered, "How can I strike the right tone? How can I help us to heal? What can I do?"

I have always been upset by social injustice and inhumanity to man. I think it comes from growing up in a Jewish home and hearing stories of the holocaust as a kid and thinking, "How can human beings be so cruel to other human beings?"

Whenever I have seen a cop killing a black person, or killing a white person without justification, or a court ruling that strikes me as unfair and unjust or anything else in this world that seems morally wrong, it makes me angry and frustrated.

And I can't tell you how many petitions I have signed and how many phone calls I have made in my lifetime trying to do the right thing. But I'm not a saint. I have blind spots like everyone else.

But like so many, I thought we were progressing, I thought we were getting better, and yet here we are.

And it's easy to think that all I have done has been for nothing. But, then I heard Vice President Biden speak this morning, and he reminded me that it's an ongoing fight. It never ends. That we have to keep trying to form a more perfect union and strive for life, liberty, equality, and the pursuit of happiness FOR ALL because what is the alternative?

I also had to remind myself that I believe the work I do in the world, helping thought leaders and change-makers solve problems to make the world a better place one book at a time, is my way of making a contribution, as are my songs. I am here for a reason.

But there's so much more to do. A friend of mine, who is a person of color, posted this, it's a Beginners Guide to Fighting Injustice I found it extremely helpful. If you're interested in being part of the solution, please read it.

I want to be clear that I am not interested in fighting about conservative or liberal, Democrat vs Republican. I am about finding our humanity and letting that be our guiding light.

And I'm not one of those people who is going to say if you don't agree unfriend me or unsubscribe from my email list. But, I will say that when I speak to prospective clients, if I don't agree with their message, I will not work with them.

This is what I want to promote through my work, through working with others and in my life: humanity, tolerance, diversity, and equality.

This week's podcast, Episode 47: The Secret to Getting Rich That Most People Ignore, with Dr. Don Cote

“Words and magic are two powerful forces that can change the world.”
? Amy Neftzger

Article: How to Manage Your Time Like the Pros So you can Write that Book and Live your Dream Life!

Too many thought leaders, change-makers, and creatives have a lot of ideas and a lot on their plates, and think that they don’t have time to write a book or get to their dream life. But, as Don Cote mentioned in this week’s podcast, it’s all about lifestyle management. And if you want to write that book, reach your goals, and live your dream, you must check each activity that you put on your calendar against these four things:

“Is this something that gets me closer to my dreams?”

And if not, “Can I eliminate it?”

If it does get you closer to your dreams, ask yourself, “Can I automate it?”

If you can't automate it, ask yourself, “Can I potentially delegate it?”

And if you can't delegate it, can you collaborate about it?

And if you do this, you will find that you can get a couple more hours in the day to get it done. Remember, everyone has the same 24 hours in a day.

Take me, for example, I have written 9 books, co-written in two of them , created several courses, and coached hundreds of students and clients personally, and I have done hundreds of trainings and interviews over the years. I also take care of my husband and the household and have suffered from an immune disorder for about 20 years.. Is it easy? Hell no. But it can be done!

As Don tells people,” if you've ever said, ‘Yeah, if I just had a couple more hours in the day,’ you do, you're just spending them on doing things that somebody else could do. Or, it could be automated. If you had two extra hours in your day, 365 days a year, and you divide that by forty, as in a forty-hour work week, that's over eighteen weeks of vacation a year.

And most people couldn't tell you if you held a gun to their head…where that eighteen weeks went. It just goes away in five minutes here, fifteen minutes there, and it's gone. That's the juice. That's where you can write the book” (and create your dream lifestyle).
