    Some things I learned yesterday at "Getting More of What You Want Out of Life & Business" with Michael Gidlewski. As always, thanks to our partners at Devereux Mental and Behavioral Health, especially Dave Lockwood and Mary Imbornone, for hosting!

    How can we define success? Success is Progressive, Realization, Worthwhile, Predetermined, and Personal, and SMART

    What is the purpose behind Goal Setting? Goals are the fuel for growth in all areas of your life!

    Success depends on Goal Setting. Goal setting depends on clarity. You need to know where you want to get to in order to achieve it.

    What do successful people do that others don't? They keep a positive mental attitude. They're goal directed. They're self-motivated. They manage their time (well). They have an "Abundance Mentality".

    Proper Goal Setting can't begin until you have an honest assessment of WHERE YOU ARE.

    Moment of Truth: Not all business professionals get access to unlimited budgets. Okay, no one really does. Somewhere, sometime, we all end up searching for a tool or resource to help us get the job done. Not all tools, though, bring the same value. And every job requires a different tool or toolkit. So where can we find the best free or low-cost resources to help us achieve our goals? Well, we could spend countless hours searching on the internet. Or posting in vein on LinkedIn. But wouldn't it be awesome to find things from our peers - to hear and see what others use when their budgets run dry?

    Join the Learning & Development professionals for this one of a kind event in November. Open mic time! Bring your favorite tool(s) and get 5-10 minutes to talk about it in front of your peers, showcasing how it works and how it helps you claim "mission accomplished". Information & registration here on our website!

    Two things to do this weekend:

    1. Set your clocks back Saturday night before you go to sleep

    2. Register for L&D Philly's last workshop of the year.

    You can't create compelling, interactive, engaging, and effective training, talent management, or coaching programs without great tools. And no one gets an unlimited budget. So check out and come to our workshop on November 10th at Harrisburg University's new Philadelphia campus to see what your peers use that's free or low-cost. And maybe share something from your bag of tricks (or treats). Information & registration here on our website.
