Hey guys! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend - and are looking down the barrel of a positive and productive week. Here are a few items I came across (and wrote) last week that I think you'll find valuable.

Last week I thought a lot about the issue of how to get yourself re-motivated and re-energised in your business. At some point or another we all lose some steam, and how hard it can be to get yourself going again. I shared some thoughts about that:

  • Sometimes someone from the “outside” can help push you toward resolving your lack of excitement for your business.
  • Sometimes a new project or new goals is just what you need to help you regain momentum and excitement in your business.
  • One way to regain your energy for your business is to look back and rediscover what attracted you in the first place.
  • Build time into your schedule to reflect on your career, business, life. It’s a step toward re-energizing yourself.

And my last blog post focused on some ideas for how to pull yourself out of that rut. I hope you'll read it (if you haven't already) - and add your own ideas: "Gettin' The Passion Back".
