Do systems make sense?

The psychology of using a system is that by doing what you need to do consistently, you achieve consistent results!  That’s powerful.

In my last post,I talked about Accountability..once again, folks commented to me personally, not here!

So, like the Get Hired Now!(tm) and the Individualized Action Plans for my coaching clients…It’s a system of keeping you on track & moving forward, overcome the feelings that can overwhelm and the roadblocks in your way!

Please comment!

What systems do you use?  Are you getting results?

What Makes Accountability Work?

In about an hour, I’m hosting a Master Mind group.  One of the areas we always talk about is accountability.  Organizing your goals-both daily, weekly and even long-term, like in 5 or 10 years, I will…I read that setting goals helps you know when you get there-a compass, a direction..But even more important than writing your goals down (which really separates the successful from the wannabes!)    Making a commitment on paper is a great first step.  Telling your group, your coach, your spouse/significant other or a friend makes it real-they can ask if you’re working on…That’s being held accountable!

You’ve heard me talk about the Get Hired Now! program-it’s a 28 day proven system for Landing that GREAT job!  What makes it work?  You get effective job search strategies & techniques, a way of handling obstacles to winning asa job-seeker and you team with a career coach (me) and a group of other job seekers to help provide the support and encouragement necessary to stay on track and succeed. May 16 & 18 at 2pm EST are first calls and then a month of Group Coaching calls each Tues at 2pm EST.  Details all on my web site or

This has the Bonus of keeping you focused, on track, decreasing overwhelm and stress and increasing well-being, income and happiness!

Can you do this by yourself?  Absolutely.  What’s the success rate of working on finding a GREAT job alone?  Not very good-in fact, less than 3%.

Accountability works.

Why do you think or disagree that it works?  Please comment!

40+ & Fabulous!

I was watching "Access Hollywood" & they showcased 40+ actresses, models-all beautiful, sexy, "comfortable in their own skin" women!  People Magazine showed buff Madonna & Demi Moore and all the Desperate Housewives, 40 & Fabulous!!      

Hear, Hear, I’m not Madonna or Demi or Elle, Iman or Teri!  But I am 40+!

Powerful, sexy-they say 60 is the new 40!  I’m not getting older…

What do you think?

Shakespeare’s Additional Plays in an old book!

Wow-I heard on television (hey, after CSI & Without A Trace comes the news!)  My media fix!  Well, it seems that one of the 600-700 that were printed of all of Shakespeare’s plays – new ones! was found!  Incredibly rare!  6 million bucks!  My husband kiddingly said, “oh now, the surprise is gone-I was gonna get it for you!”  Yeah, right!  Imagine new stuff from the 16th century “Bard of Stratford-on-Avon”  Wow!

Got me to thinkin’ even a great playwright had organizing issues!  He probably squirreled it away ” for safe-keeping” and here it is centuries later!  Not clutter, as the lucky finder thought!  Makes me feel better about this mid-life woman’s change!  I’m going from paper files to a few-the rest for recycling!  Long live technology!!

Tomorrow is my FREE Spring Cleaning Accountability Day!  We start at 11am EST and call every 1-2 hours, we’ll all decide…
