I just watched this 5 part video* on creative consciousness with Deepak Chopra and was blown away, so I thought I would share it with you! This is a 5 part series – just 10 minutes each.One of the takeaways was this simple exercise:
Since everything is energy, we want to be sure we are staying in a high vibration and attracting what we want in our life…rather than being in a state of struggle and fear.Deepak suggests,every day, ask yourself three questions:
- Is it easy?
- Is it fun?
- Am I getting results?
If the answer to any of these is no, then consider how it is affecting your life.Could this be why your are not experiencing success, joy, vibrant health? What is the Universe trying to tell you? What one thing could you do, change or let go of to create more ease, flow, fun? Could this possibly change your results or experience?
Play with this? Have fun with it.Stop being so serious.Let go of the fear, find someone to share your ideas with.Find a mastermind group.Ask yourself, “What’s the worst thing that can happen anyway and is it worse than staying where I am right now?”
I just had a huge breakthrough this week working with my new Operations Manager, Sue, and you will be seeing major changes in the work I am doing.Yes, it’s scary, but it’s also time to step up, get out of my comfort zone again, and to see what happens. I’d love to hear your thoughts, what can you release that is draining your energy? Post your answer below! Thanks!

I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want is a two page “To-Do List” on my desk looking at me square in the face each morning when I arrive ready to start my day.
In fact, Linenberger states that research shows that individuals with long To-Do Lists experience symptoms similar to ADD and tend to lose focus, become less affective and lose discrimination as to what is even important anymore.
I believe that an unmanaged To-Do list can knock our confidence creating that, “I am a loser” syndrome, simply because we are in a state of overwhelm.
In Linenberg’s bestselling book, Master Your Workday Now! Linenberg has created a fabulous Workday Mastery To-Do List designed to help you:
- Gain Control
- Get Creative
- Connect your workday to your life purpose
I love this! He states that Workday Mastery will help give you the feeling and knowledge that your life and business are flowing more effortlessly, your goals are clear and objective, and your career is developing just the way you want it to (in line with your values).
In his book, Linenberger goes into detail on how to manage tasks with his “Now Task List”.Many of you may already be familiar with my Perfect Life Time System made up of Perfect Days, Prep Days and Power Days which is based on how to schedule and focus each day to stay rejuvenated by leveraging your time, energy and money.The Now Task List is how to manage your To-Do List, so they are a perfect marriage!
Linenberger suggests creating ONE LIST and break it up into three categories:
- Critical Now:only 5 items (must do today) and states that you look at this list hourly
- Opportunity Now: only 20 items (due in next 10 days) and look at this list daily
- Over the Horizon:everything else (due over 10 days) and update this list weekly
I use a 90 Day Project Worksheet listing all my projects and their tasks by category.Next I take those tasks and move them to Linenberger’s Now Task List.It’s perfect! Doesn’t just reading about this take your stomach ache away?!!
You can manage this list on paper, on a Microsoft Word Document or even with your Outlook Task System.You can learn more about all of this by listening to our interview with Linenberger, or visiting his website where he has created some videos on how to implement this system.
Feel free to watch my videos on implementing the Perfect Life Time System and then consider using Linenberger’s Now Task System to manage your To-Do List.I and my team have been using this combined system for the last year and it’s been wonderful.
I’d love to hear from you.What is your biggest challenge in managing your time and energy?How do you like these tips?

What is your daily practice? This is a ritual that you practice on a daily bases – like cleaning your teeth – that help s you stay more rejuvenated, joyful and successful. I just made a list in my journal the other day and I was shocked to see how long the list was.Some of the items had to do with making money, others with getting organized and running my household and others had to do with taking care of myself.
I realized immediately, that the most important – and actually the easiest to skip — have to do with self care.So today, let me know what are the daily rituals or practices that you can create in your life to help you stay rejuvenated, so you can do your best work and have a more joyful and prosperous life!
