• Do you have a “What if” moment that you think defines your life? “What if” didn’t happen, so come Monday, get over it and move on.
  • When you’re with opinionated, self-absorbed people, one strategy is to attempt to let them talk themselves out. Try it and see what happens, realizing some people may never reach that point.
  • Experiment this coming week: Accept everything that comes your way as part of a bigger plan. Don’t get upset; look at the big picture, even if it’s out of focus.
  • How often does stopping to help someone result in you getting help in return? Stop and help yourself…I mean someone else… daily.
  • Are the innovative opportunities you have to get better few and far between or in front of you all the time? If you’re paying attention, the correct answer is “all the time,” so start keeping track.  – Mike Brown

    I had a lovely experience on the weekend – I posted on Facebook that I was editing my book ‘The Mojo of Flow’ and would anyone like a sneak peak to give me some feedback before we publish.  I had three people offer to help edit/proofread (who all have editing experience!) and two of these I had helped with different things previously, just because I could… so awesome 🙂 How does it get even better than that??? 

    The ideas you are suggesting here are all ways I use to create more flow!  thank you 🙂

      What a great idea Lisa to extend the opportunity to your network to participate in book editing. It certainly helps you, and the exclusivity (and reciprocity) of the experience makes it valuable for the three participants as well. Very cool!
