To help ensure you have a great 2015, I want to share five tools that I think will help you excel this year. I personally use these tools and I believe they will help you in many ways.
Have you given away your email to like a million sites like me? Now your inbox is filled with hundreds of offers daily and you have no idea how to manage the madness.
I was introduced to Unroll.me from the guys at Stop Chasing Influencers. This service is FREE and helps you manage all of those annoying subscriptions. It really saved my life!
In a nutshell, you give them your email address and they cycle through all of your emails. They provide a list of all the subscriptions you receive. Then you decide which subscriptions to keep and which ones to ditch. Better yet, every day you get just one email with all of the subscriptions you kept from Unroll.me.
The majority of people set goals each year, but then neglect to ever look at those goals again. It’s hard to accomplish anything you don’t look at. DreamItAlive.com helps you visualize what you want to accomplish through pictures, words, and a nice collage.
After you create your vision board you can do a couple of things. I printed mine out and have it in my office so I know what I want. You can also use it as a screen saver on your computer as a reminder or send it to friends. It is a fabulous reminder when you aren’t feeling too motivated.
Below is the vision board I created for 2015:
After making fun of mediation for years, I am addicted! I don’t blame you if you think I’m crazy, but mediation is the best thing since sliced bread (especially when you have three kids 6 and under running around).
I decided to start meditating because a number of very successful people make this a daily habit (Ariana Huffington, Ray Dalio, Rupert Murdoch, Jennifer Aniston, Jerry Seinfeld, Howard Stern are just a few). I’m not a doctor, but meditation has helped me relax, clear my mind, and mentally prepare for the day. It makes me feel better.
All you need is 5-10 minutes a day. I meditate in the morning before the craziness starts and everyone else is in bed. If you have never meditated before then I suggest using an app called HeadSpace. This will help you get started. If you try it, let me know how you feel after two weeks!
Did you know 85% of people who graduate college never read a meaningful book after they graduate. The number one excuse is they don’t have time. Let me introduce you to Audible.com.
This site allows you to download audible books to your iPhone or Android (or rent them from your library). Instead of physically reading the books, you can listen to them. There really is no excuse not read books in 2015. I promise if you read five meaningful books this year, your life will change over the next 12 months.
This isn’t a high tech tool. All you need is one spiral bound notebook. Every day write down two or three things you are grateful for in your life.
You don’t have to make this too complicated. You can be thankful for the bed you sleep in at night. The point is when you start thinking about the things you are grateful for, then you start thinking more positively. When you are more positive, good things happen in your life!
I hope these tools help you make 2015 AWESOME! If there are some tools you want to share; please share below!
