How to Have More FUN! In this episode of The Charged Life, high performance coach and #1 New York Times bestselling author Brendon Burchard discusses four simple ways to have more fun and enjoyment in life. ——————– SUMMARY: ——————– Fun is not something you “have,” it’s something you generate. More fun and enjoyment in life are results of greater presence and intention to create fun and joy in all you do. Here’s how to have more fun: 1. Tell yourself, “It is my intention to be present and have fun in this moment.” Most great fun in life comes from an immersion in the moment. In immersion joy arises. In immersion humor can perpetuate. In immersion in the moment and presence in the Now you have access to a greater level of energy and awareness all around you that you can transform into fun. 2. Record the moments of joy and happiness in your life. Many people can’t easily recall the top 10 times they’ve had fun in the last year. It’s not because they didn’t have fun, it’s because they never integrated that fun into their memory and being. They didn’t think about it, reflect on it, journal about it, and so it never stuck in their heads and hearts. If you want fun to be a part of you then you must feel it, recall it, integrate it into your identity. 3. Create a “this brings me joy and fun” list. Do you even know what exactly brings you joy, pleasure, passion, happiness, fulfillment? If you are aware of WHAT and WHO brings those things into your life, then you can have them on a target list to do or be around more often. Also, create a “these things do not bring me joy and fun” list, and immediately stop doing those things so often – delegate them, quit them, transition them, avoid them…but do not do them with regular occurrence any longer. Take command of your life and rid it of passionless things. 4. Ask…. ——————– ABOUT BRENDON BURCHARD ——————– Brendon Burchard is one of the most widely followed personal development trainers of our time.

Be Persistent, Be Present, & Use Your Gift. | Chef Otto Chef Otto is an accomplished chef whose impressive career includes world class establishments such as the Bellagio Hotel, Charlie Trotters, the Atlantis and Mardan Palace, and, most notable, the Culinary Institute of America. He started his career by volunteering as a cook in the United States Navy Submarine Force, feeding men stationed on the USS Patrick Henry in Pearl Harbor.

Making Decisions – Process and Action – By Tom Conway Many people don’t realize they already have a plan – one of the government’s choosing and not their own. If they pass on to eternity today, some existing plan will kick into gear, and it may not be what they want. When people make decisions that will impact the lives of others, it is important to realize that today’s decision need not be their final decision. Because of extended lifespans today, there is a very good chance that they will revisit their plan and change it. Most decisions are not irrevocable. Former CEO and business psychology author William B. Given, Jr. gives this sound advice: “When possible make the decisions now, even if the action is in the future. A revised decision is usually better than one reached at the last moment.“ So what keeps people from making these decisions? Consider these factors. Lack of Clarity One factor is lack of clarity on what the individual or couple wants to do. When people are unsure of the objective they want to accomplish, they have no confidence in making a decision, Fear Fear is another factor that handcuffs decision making. Fear that they will make a wrong decision. Much of this fear is tied to emotional uncertainty. Inadequate Information Sometimes people don’t make decisions because they don’t have enough information. In the wealth transfer arena, people are often uncertain of what their children will do with the wealth they entrust to them. Will they be good stewards or managers of what they are given? Will they squander it frivolously? Personality Couples generally differ in personality type, with one likely to make quick decisions while the other wants more time to think – the intuitive versus the analytical. One may embrace risk while the other desperately wants to avoid it. One is likely to favor logical thinking while the other is more concerned about feelings and possible consequences for the people involved. Don’t know how Many people do not have a decision-making process they trust. What do I mean by a process? I mean a step-by-step decision-making process that leads to a decision they can live with. The decision they come to may not be the perfect one, but it is the best alternative at the time based upon the information they have. A Decision-Making Process A decision making process that I learned and have used over the years with clients has ten steps: 1) Pray for guidance. Prayer and meditation can often help you gain clarity around a decision. 2) Define the decision. What is the question you are trying to answer – the problem you are trying to solve? 3) Clarify your objectives. 4) Prioritize the objectives. 5) Identify your alternatives. 6) Evaluate the alternatives. 7) Make a preliminary decision. 8) Assess the risk. What could go wrong if I make this decision? 9) Make the decision. 10) Test the decision […]
Martin Rees: Can we prevent the end of the world? A post-apocalyptic Earth, emptied of humans, seems like the stuff of science fiction TV and movies.

How To Get Unstuck | Terry Singh What do we do when we feel like we have no ideas worth spreading? When the idea of making a change seems overwhelming and we don’t know where or how to begin? Clinical psychologist Dr. Terry Singh believes that we have all experienced moments like this, moments of feeling “stuck”.
