I have been reading voraciously in order to learn some level of professionalism and gain some control in my business.

One of the books I have read for the second time now is called The Myth of Multitasking - how doing it all gets nothing done by Dave Crenshaw.

WOW - what a powerful little book. It's not a long or a hard read but it is so very powerful.

The blunt and direct way this man explains that multi tasking is actually a lie and then he proves it to you and shows you what it really is - switch tasking - and then he tells you and shows you what the costs are that are associated with switch tasking.

Man, it's amazing to learn that one of the things I had prided myself on is actually hurting me and my business! The other book I am reading is called Work Less and Do More by Jan Yager.

I am learning - slowly, how to create plans for projects and how to take the ELEPHANT called work and eat it in tiny, manageable portions that allow me to stay on track and on time....I am determined to get good at this and to have a home and family life when I am through this part of the process!!!! I wished they would teach these kinds of life skills in school. They'd save so many people such heartache if they taught something this useful in school!

After everything I have been reading up to now, I am amazed at how much I get done in spite of it all - but I am looking forward to becoming so organized and so on top of things that maybe I won't need an admin assistant - what I will need is to find good contractors to take care of doing the books and invoicing and laying out the paper - the rest I'll be able to manage on my own until the RIGHT person comes along!

I feel so liberated at that thought.
I feel like there is hope and I am now so excited about the possibilities!

I hope every small business person can find a formula and the right people to work with them...we all deserve a break and a life! I welcome any reading suggestions from other business people who are, like me, trying to get some balance in their life and improve what they do and how they do it.

In the news today:

Protesters were thwarted yet again by Cpl Monty Robinson as yet again he does not appear in court.

Deeley Harley-Davidson of Canada backs some skiers for the Olympics and they have at least on one front moved away from the dark side to the pink side!

Neil from OneWheel Drive is really in to this CAUSE  and the January Recall Notices are out.

There are a ton of other note worthy items in the news, I trust you know where to find them if you are an old hand at but for those of you who aren't familiar with our web site, bottom left corner of the What's Hot Page....all of the latest news, in the middle the latest sports news and on the right the latest jokes that have been submitted.

When you are a member on there are a ton of ways that you can share your community news, your group or club events...if it's important to you and you are a rider  - share it with the rest of us because you know's probably important to others or at least it would be if they knew about it!

The Best thing is now that on each provincial news and travel page you are going to be able to see - again at the bottom of the pages, the provincial chapter information for the various riding clubs, groups and organizations, the events that are upcoming and the business partner profiles that have so far been done that pertain to that province!
Once you have submitted your article to the site - open it up again and then share it to your favourite social network - do it once - share it  - get benefit of your own network and ours!

We have a ton of information sent to us every day and Ali and I are getting really over worked and we'd like to ask for your help.

Please - if at all possible, instead of sending the stuff to us to add to the site, would you consider taking the time to add it yourself? It really only takes a couple of minutes once you get the hang of it and it would help she and I so much. The submit links are on the top right hand side of every page where you can submit stuff!! You must be logged in to see them.

If you are fortunate enough to be riding your motorcycle today - I hate to tell you this but you SUCK! LMAO I have PMS SOOOO BAD! Seriously if you are riding today - PLEASE, ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you.
(PARKED MOTORCYCLE SYNDROME - Usually followed by SOS Shiney Object Syndrome)

For the rest of us - there are two days left to get your entry in to the Beat the PMS Blues on line Show 'n' Shine for your shot at your share of the $5K + in prizes we are giving away!

Love ya all!

Have a fabulous day...
