There are a few simple guidelines I operate by in life and some of them are:

  1. Put Integrity and value first, no matter what anybody else does.
  2. If you’re in business don’t be afraid to turn jobs down that would undermine your integrity or would be beneath what you represent.
  3. Fine tune your game plan every day.
  4. Be a voracious reader and lifelong learner.
  5. If you wonder how some thing is done, do research and then find out how to do it. Then, if you really want to do something cool, show someone else how to do it afterwards. You might learn to do it so well that you are able to mentor someone else in the future!
  6. Spend time in nature or at a minimum sunshine everyday. If you don’t have sunshine and the weather is dismal or rainy, then put on nature sounds for listen to the rain outside your window. Open the window slightly so you can hear it. Nature sounds are calming because we’re connected to them.
  7. Exercise and spend time building your balance, stamina, and concentration through exercises like yoga and Tai Chi.
  8. Keep only quality people around you who represent your ideals and ethical beliefs.
  9. Try to make as many voice-to-voice phone calls as you possibly can instead of texting. You will find that you’re going to be building more quality relationships because you’re going to hear vocal intonation that you wouldn’t have heard otherwise. It’s a much more human, highly personal way to communicate too- the way we did things before cell phones were invented! Another Fringe benefit that will blend over into other areas of your life, is that you’ll have fewer distractions while you work on more important projects.
  10. The satisfaction from communicating in a more old school way and avoiding some of the new School Technology is incredible. It will make you feel more relaxed and less like a tech geek.
  11. Try to minimize multi-tasking, and instead focus on quality, quality and more quality. Work on one specific thing at a time and keep your concentration level high into the best that you’re able.

The Hoarder in You by Dr. Robin Zasio on Audible & Commentary by Paulette Motzko

I’m 3% through The Hoarder in You (Unabridged) by Dr. Robin Zasio, narrated by Cassandra Campbell on my Audible app.

Try Audible and get it free.

I read every review on this book and everyone that read it not only read it once but read it twice and said that it has given them insight into why they do what they do and allowed them to live a more peaceful life, streamlining what they owned and removing all the unwanted clutter from their world.

I’m happy to know that I’m not defined as a hoarder because a hoarder is a person who can’t make decisions about what they own, and I certainly can.

I’ve gotten rid of so many things that broke in my move coming from Southern California to Las Vegas and I replaced it with new that I liked better, in some cases.

I was happy that the things that mattered to me made it unbroken and in one piece.

When I was married I kept adding to my collections and now I just want to enjoy what I have.

In regards to my books, there are books that I will always keep, but there are others I pass on to other people or trade in several for one I love. Amazon has ways that you can sell books back to them; they do it by looking at the ISBN number too.

Just as people change with time so do the things we value in our lives, hence what we surround ourselves with.

I value:

  1. Always people first.
  2. Things secondly
  3. Most of all, I strive for simplicity and serenity and inner peace which gives happiness naturally.
  4. Enjoying the present moment to its full capacity.
  5. Making your present so phenomenal that you have Stellar Memories to look back on one day.
