My Three Words for 2017
by Robb On January 3, 2017

I learned about the My Three Words exercise from Chris Brogan a few years back. If you want a deeper background, you can read all about his approach HERE.

Like most folks, I have both succeeded and failed miserably in following the purpose of the the exercise. In an attempt to do the former and not the latter, I am sharing this in hopes that A) my tribe keeps me accountable, and B) I always have another reference point.

So here goes… My three worlds that I am using to guide myself this year:

Smooth
Love
Move

Smooth stems from my desire to enhance my processes related to work. No more stuff falls through the cracks. All my interactions with clients, family, friends and colleagues are easy. It stems from one of my favorite lines to share with clients: “It’s my job to make your job easy.’

Love is somewhat tied to Smooth in that I have set a pretty high goal related to coaching. In the many years I have provided coaching one theme has stood out. The more I can love on my clients the more impactful the work. Less judgement, less soap boxing, more acceptance and embracement. I’m sure my wife will benefit from this as well!

Move. I’d benefit from being in better physical shape. I’ll just leave it at that. Plus, any project I’m working on typically needs some type of action out of me in order to get it done. This is just a great reminder of that.

That’s it. Three simple (or maybe not) words that should help guide me towards achieving my best year ever in 2017. Oh, and if I’m ever off, you have my permission to give me a firm reminder of my three words.

Go get ‘Em!

Guest Post – Roger Seip Trains Your Brain
by Robb On March 8, 2013

I asked Roger to be a guest poster on my Blog today for a couple of reasons:

1. He is awesome.

2. I’ve had the privilege of delivering some of his content lately and not only have our audiences gotten a ton out of it, but it has REALLY helped me clarify how and why I have been getting the results I have lately.

3. He still doesn’t have his blog up and running yet (too busy delivering amazing programs based on his book) so I thought it would be fun for him to share some of the web with me!

So without further ado…Heeeeeeeeeere’s Roger!

Train Your Brain For Success- Roger Seip

Are you aware that your mind literally creates your life? Most have heard of this concept, but let’s make it really personal:

Take a moment and identify some problem that you currently face. Any problem will do, just identify it and hold it in your mind for a few moments. Notice how that feels. Now identify one thing that you’re thankful for and hold THAT in your mind…

Notice a difference? Most do- reason being that what goes on in your mind literally creates your emotional experience and then ripples out into every result you get in every area of life. You literally create your world with your mind.

And there’s a problem…

Defining Your Keystone Goal Defined
by Robb On February 1, 2013

Over the last few weeks we have had several folks reach out to ask about their Keystone Goal. Questions have ranged from “What is it?” to “Why is it important?” to “How in the heck do I DO it?” I LOVE that people are asking. It shows that the concept is resonating and that folks are interested in improving their lives. They get that when they have clear, energizing goals, that will help them achieve what they want in business and in life.

In this post, I will attempt to more clearly define the Keystone Goal and where it lies in the big picture of success. Before we go any further, I HIGHLY recommend that anyone who is curious about the concept of a Keystone Goal pick up a copy of Roger Seip’s Train Your Brain For Success book as he pretty much coined the term Keystone Goal and spends a good amount of text defining it. Anything you read in this post comes straight from the book. I’m not trying to get selly-selly by any means, I just want to make sure I give credit where credit is due.

Consider this post a Cliff’s Notes version of his chapter on the Keystone Goal. If Cliff’s notes were novel-length… (get comfy before you read this one).

Goal Setting – Make It Work For You
by Robb On January 30, 2013

It’s been a while since I put up a cycling-related post and then I was presented with an opportunity to share some love! Now some folks may think that this post is either A) lost in the shuffle of beginning-of-the-year-Goal-Setting posts or B) coming out too late as people should already have their goals in place. If you are one those, POO POO ON YOU! It’s never too late to take a look at your goals. Who knows, you might need to re-evaluate.

So I found this article and it struck home because it calls out the big ride I did last year. I absolutely had a goal to finish the ride. And that was about it. I actually followed the SMART plan for that event and it totally helped.

Bruce Lee Gets (Got) It!
by Robb On January 22, 2013

Last week, I was a guest instructor on the Train Your Brain Weekly Call. I was covering the topic of Managing Rapid Success and one of the first questions Jana asked me was what was my definition of success. I replied that I currently subscribe to Earl Nightingale’s definition that Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal (or something to that effect).

We went on to discuss that the reason I prefer that definition is because there is no finish line. It always leaves me striving to achieve more, and it inspires me to keep pushing to not just hit my goals, but to blow past them. Turns out, I’m in decent company… Today, I found this post talking about Bruce Lee‘s vision of what a goal is. In case you don’t want to click through, here’s his quote,
