Day 3

Getting things done: making extra time

What if you could have an extra three hours in your day to achieve your goals and dreams! Well it’s happened to me – and the person doing the gifting is … me! Here’s how I do it … When I started this 500 day project I committed to getting up at four in the […]

Day 2

What is it that guides us?

Yesterday I alluded to the fact that we could “make a request to our maker” and be given instructions on how to achieve what it is that we desire. What did I mean by instructions? I also called it “guidance” further on in the piece and I think that’s a better term – one that […]
