As indicated by nearly every person I have ever met, and according to the StrengthsFinder test, I am an achiever.
As an achiever I like to check tasks off a list, accomplish big goals, and never – ever – fail.
I am not a fan of resolutions — but I am a HUGE fan of intentionally planning overly ambitious goals. In today’s episode of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast I discuss how to plan the new year AND accomplish more than ever!

Though I think this Les Brown quote is a little cheesy, it nails the theory behind setting big goals: “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

As of the host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, I would love to spark some creativity into your morning routine. So, I created a fairly eccentric list of 101 ways you can begin your day.
These ideas are a little off-the-wall. Some are practical — most are not. Some are funny while others are a little serious.
Find a couple that work for you and try something new tomorrow morning!

4 weeks ago I read a scary blog post from Dan Miller, the author I interviewed in Episode #15 of the podcast.

The blog post, which is titled “I got sued and you can too!” freaked me out because I found myself on the edge of a copyright-infringement lawsuit.
It was one of those “Aha!” moments that lit a fire in me on the spot.

Before I created this blog, I had a website called “Graduated and Clueless” where I wrote about how completely inept I was at figuring out life. The main focus was on career paths for recent college graduates.

Since then, I have made some significant discoveries and found my “sweet spot” with my own career. The books listed below are a sampling of some of the best resources I have found and I believe you will love them as much as I do.
