The Handbook for Personal and Professional Success in 2012

Happy 2012!

I got this Handbook from my cousin and shared it with some close friends. I guess it is just my nature as an executive business coach to communicate uplifting messages.

The reaction to the handbook was so positive I am sharing it with everyone.

Please offer up comments, I want to know what you think! few comments specific to your business at the bottom.

Have a great 2012!

The HANDBOOK for 2012


  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
  • Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants…
  • Live with the 3 E’s — Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
  • Make time to pray.
  • Play more games
  • Read more books than you did in 2011.
  • Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day
  • Sleep for 7 hours…
  • Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.


  • Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  • Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
  • Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  • Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
  • Dream more while you are awake.
  • Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need…
  • Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
  • Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  • Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class, but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  • Smile and laugh more.
  • You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree….


  • Call your family often.
  • Each day give something good to others.
  • Forgive everyone for everything…
  • Spend time w/people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
  • Try to make at least three people smile each day.
  • What other people think of you is none of your business.
  • Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.


  • Do the right thing!
  • Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
  • GOD heals everything.
  • However good or bad a situation is, it will change…
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  • The best is yet to come…
  • When you awake alive in the morning, thank GOD for it.


  • Value people first and foremost (employees, customers, suppliers). Collectively they will make you successful
  • Remember when you point a finger at someone there are 3 fingers pointed back at you
  • Leadership is when words and actions match!
  • Commit to continuous improvement
  • Commitment to innovation to remain on top the next 20 years

This entire list is about YOU committing to make life better. Get it DONE!

    Amanda, that is a suggestion that I am afraid is good but hard for us carnivores to achieve.

    Reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld. Jerry was trying to give up meat but was dating a woman into meat. Jerry asks Elaine what she thinks his new girlfriend is likely to cook next and Elaine says.. “I don’t know but I am sure it will have parents!!

    Hope you are well!
