7 Days in and still going. It was a little difficult being away camping and then at a cottage, but I managed to get my exercise in, do my reading, affirmations, healthy breakfasts and wake up without hitting snooze!
The toughest part, I think, is not hitting that snooze bar, but I’m glad when I’m up and exercising. I love the reading part, because I have a stack of books I want to read and by taking 20 minutes each morning I’m making great progress. Right now I’m reading Crucial Conversations.
Follow me on twitter for more frequent updates, and, even better, send me your updates – I want to know if you are taking the challenge too. @MikeBonnLMI
I’ve read so many “Top 5 things…” articles (and heck, I’ve written a few too) that I tend to ignore them, but this was tweeted out by my brother today and I highly recommend you read it and then do it. It’s simple, fundamental things that we can all do to get a little better every day. Test yourself and see if you can do all 5, every day for one month, starting tomorrow. See how you feel at the end. I’m in and will Tweet my results each day. If you’re with me, Tweet, Share, Comment, Like, whatever, just let me know and let’s have some fun!
This article is a little bit dated, but it still holds true. A good discussion on what benefits Executives, get from coaching. In my practice, anyone from the CEO to shop floor supervisors get measured ROI from LMI’s proven process.

It’s always great to get testimonials from my clients. Here is one I received recently from Jordie Campbell of Cam Tran Co. Ltd.
Have you ever sat in a meeting where:
1. You had no idea what the purpose of the meeting was.
2. You had no idea what you were expected to contribute.
3. Several people are checking emails or surfing on their phones while others are speaking?
4. Much was discussed, but nothing decided.
In a survey of 500 workers, Management Today Magazine found workers spent 16 hours a week in meetings and 4 of those hours they considered waste. Over the course of a year, that’s 25, 8 hour days wasted. How many important projects could you complete with an extra 25 productive days?
This nonsense needs to stop and I’ve put together a 30 minute webinar to help you get back some of the time that others are stealing from you in meetings. Register here to join me on June 23 at 12:00 Eastern.
