nachapp update


As posted in Get Organised in 2014 with nach, I am trialling this online productivity tool free Productionfor 30 days. Need for achievement (nach for short) is a handy little app that works on all your devices, PC, laptop, tablet, smartphone, whatever you use to access the internet.

You can access it yourself here: for your own 30 day free trial. What I think is great about it, is that it will hold you accountable. Well, it will help you be accountable to yourself!

The way it does this is by sending you e.mails or SMS messages to prompt you about the steps you said you would take that day toward a goal and also a weekly update and summary of steps taken and/or missed that week.

I haven’t tried the SMS messages yet but the e.mails are working well. You get a little prompt into your inbox with regard to what you said you were going to do that day and if you are in the habit of checking your inbox in the morning or throughout the day, it does act a little like a wake up call.

So if you are ever prone to put things off, this one could be for you!

Here are a few tips on getting started:

Edify, don’t Vilify


Just a quick post today but a good point that I have heard some successful people making recently……Try to minimise the negative talk about others and try to talk people up instead.

Like your mother said, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all! Bad mouthing is something that happens all the time in many environments, working, social or otherwise, but it rarely does us any good.

Attacking somebody’s character does nothing for our own self-esteem. It might make us feel superior for a moment but longer term, talking people down just creates a negative vibe all round.

Edifying and talking people up does the opposite. Finding the good in others and building them up is positive all round, for them, you and others. The caveat of course, is if there is an injustice that needs dealing with. This can be done properly in person though, leaving the petty talk and bitching at the door.

So just a short post today but while you are here, why not check this one out: Principles of Persuasion.

Back soon!

It Can all Change in a Day

It can all change in a day says Jim Rohn, the classic mentor who sadly passed away in 2009. Jim’s stuff is so great. I’d recommend anyone to check out more of his videos as you may find the day that turns your life around is a day that you listen to this great man.

Here is a classic clip below. Wow, disgust, decision, desire and resolve. 4 key emotions that can make all the difference and make you decide “enough is enough!!”
