Created Future

Sep 04, 2018

One of the reasons that I named my business the Created Future Academy is because we all have the ability to create whatever future we desire.

First in our minds and then in our reality.

Our future only exists in our mind so we can really have any future we want... right?

It hasn’t happened yet, it isn’t real. Just like our interpretation of our past experiences, that isn’t real either, it’s in our minds. Sure it happened, but it's our interpretation of what happened. 

Dan Sullivan says that your future is your property. You can do anything you want with it. I really love thinking about life this way.

You are given the choice to think about your future any way you want, yet so many people dread their future. But that future they are dreading was created by their imagination...

Your future doesn’t have to be determined by your past experiences. You can make decisions based on alternative outcomes in your MIND. It’s all imaginary,...

Multitasking is making you LESS Productive

Aug 28, 2018

Multitasking is making you less productive. Most people think that by multitasking, we are getting more things done. But there is actually a hard cost when we switch between two things or more at the same time. This is called context switching was developed by Gerald Weinberg at UCSD in the early 90’s.

Utilizing our time effectively is important ESPECIALLY when we are just starting out in our business.

Meaning they couldn’t pay attention, switch tasks or control their memory as well as people who self identified as liking to stick to one task at a time.

So, how bad is it?

So say you were working on 1 project for 10 hours. You would have 10 hours and zero time lost to context switching. 

With 2 projects at the same time you would think okay great that is 5 hours for...

You've Made the Decision, but have you really DECIDED?

Aug 21, 2018

If you're anything like me, it took you quite a long time to actually jump off the corporate ship in favor of what the tumultuous seas of entrepreneurship were sure to be.

But, you did it! You decided to leave. And to continue on with the water metaphor you may have spent a good amount of time 'recirculating' or getting caught up in the waves that made you spin in circles over and over again without making any further progress on your great adventure. 

Here is the hard part. Here is where we don't give up. Because there is a difference between a decision and working at something until it gets hard, changing your mind and then deciding something else. 

Did you know that the root of the word decide means to 'cut off'. So when we are making the decision to do something, actually decide it means there are no other options available to us, but the one we have chosen. 

After decision, all that is left is execution.. or as Amelia says, tenacity. "The most difficult thing is...
