An Invitation to Take Control

What would you do if…

  • you had the time
  • money was no object
  • space would be available
  • family approval was guaranteed
  • the weather cooperated
  • someone reliable watched the kids
  • you didn’t have to work
  • you had no excuses!

Get the picture?  Conjuring up reasons to not follow a dream becomes an art form when we put our minds to it.  Think of how much we could accomplish if even half the energy we devote to excuses were devoted instead to reaching our goals.

What if we never get around to setting goals?  Then we never get around to seeing our dreams become reality.   A dream is just a wish without a plan.  I’ve read or heard that expression so many times; perhaps you have, too.

What does that mean? 

It means taking the time now to write down or somehow record (pencil and paper or electronic device – your choice) just what it is you want and the steps you will take to achieve it.  If you cannot take the time to do that, how will you ever take the time to accomplish your dream?

It means figuring out the SMART way to see your wish become a reality.

It means deciding what you want, when you want it, how you will finance it, and how you will know when you have achieved it.  How will you know when the dream has come true?

If this all sounds overwhelming, it can be.  One way to figure it out is to read and enjoy the short book I wrote about that very subject.  It is entitled

R.S.V.P. ~ An Invitation to Take Control of Your Life.

The book itself fits in a briefcase or other personal item you carry with you.  It can be read is short spurts as you wait for an appointment, ride the bus, or on the plane.  Wherever you decide to enjoy it, I know you will benefit from the tips I offer.

To obtain your copy, please contact me at  It will be available after February 10, 2013.

Wishing you pleasant, helpful tips ~
