Editor’s Note: Resolution Idea: Find the Energy To Do Big Things

Published

on

[dropcap cap=W]hen I first read The Power of Full Engagement by Tony Schwartz and Jim Loehr two years ago, my first thought was: I can’t wait to tell 22,000 of my closest friends about it.[/dropcap]

But I did wait. Only two years later (and four additional books on the subject of personal energy), am I finally writing about it in INSTORE (Life Lift, page 74). While resolutions should be made any day or instant, having this appear in January makes sense.

The principles outlined in “Life Lift” aren’t for everybody. But it is the best program I can think of for someone who yearns to do big things, yet occasionally finds himself losing energy, seeking motivation and feeling like he wants to do anything aside from the thing that pays the bills.

For the past couple of years, I have been my own test subject. Though I believe in these principles, I can’t promise miracles. I haven’t written a book yet. I have gotten into shape … and fallen out of shape — a half-dozen times. My work has been good on occasion, less good on others. I’ve had more great ideas than usual, and the quality of my thinking feels higher. But most important, my life is happier when I’m living by these principles, and less happy when I’m not.

Read with an open mind. And if it doesn’t quite convince you, go back to the original sources and see if they can complete the job.

This year, above all, I wish you the energy to do big things.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
