There has never been a time where sports have garnered as much of the public’s attention. Successful coaches are successful motivators, first and foremost. Some even attain celebrity status equaling that of their key players.
You are so close to your doctorate degree you can almost taste it. All that hard work and countless hours completing your courses and passing exams, but up pops that roadblock called a dissertation defense and you feel suddenly like the coyote facing the roadrunner. So close, yet instantly out of reach.
The Holidays. They’re a time to reflect on your youth—the anticipation of gifts and the delightful scents of holiday feasts wafting from the kitchen. But being a college student can turn dreams of reindeers into workhorses. Some people may think that taking online college classes doesn’t require the time-management skills that involve attending on-campus classes. Sure, online college classes offer somewhat more flexibility, but you must be self-motivated to accomplish your class work to the best of your abilities.
Congratulations. You’ve written your dissertation. But how should you present your findings to create a clear path to your discoveries? You've conducted your research, analyzed your findings and written your results. You're tired and the last thing you want to do is keep writing.
Are you cut out for leadership? Every business, institution, form of government, or private enterprise needs rock solid leaders to grow and prosper. They often come from within the ranks among those who have taken the effort to improve their leadership skills to qualify and stand out from the crowd.
It’s that time when we look forward to all the possibilities of a new year. Consider these steps to better yourself, both physically and mentally. Think how you can work to help make the world a better place (or at least your world). Remember, it doesn’t matter what’s happened in your past; that’s already history. It time to think anew to renew.
