Imagine that there is a 10,000 pound elephant in the road blocking traffic and you’re tasked to clear the road. The driver behind you yells out the solution: “Push the elephant out of the way!”

Pushing the elephant away would certainly clear the road; the solution makes sense. But can you actually push a 10,000 pound elephant out of the way? Probably not, and you might get stomped. That leads us to an important insight.

Solutions are worthless unless you’re able to successfully implement them.

Three days from this writing, How to Be an Imperfectionist will be released. It is my second book. As the title indicates, it is a “how to” book, but unlike most how-to books or articles you’ll read, this book smartly incorporates the science of change into its perfectionism-reversing solutions.  Be an Imperfectionist…

This guest post is by Sandra Miller.

It always starts with a catastrophe.

Maybe something big, so big it makes the news. An act of war or terrorism, a natural disaster.

Or maybe something more personal, yet every bit as devastating. A terrible accident, a financial setback, a serious injury or diagnosis, a death in the family.

The list goes on and on. Life throws a million challenges at us.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could transform our toughest challenges into enduring strengths? If we could use them as fuel to move us from survival to significance?

Well, we can. Here’s how I know.

Readers Beware: The New Wave Of Amazon Review Fraud Is “Within Posted Guidelines”

It’s tough to make a living writing books. For some of us, it means we do our best to get noticed. For others, well, they cheat.

The problem with cheating is that it’s not done in a vacuum. It hurts consumers, authors, and generally, the entire industry loses trust because of a few bad apples. Fortunately for me, my first published book, Mini Habits, has been very successful. Unfortunately, it made me a target.

I thought that if I were a target, I would receive some malicious 1-star review from competitors. And well, that actually did happen once. Or I thought that people would directly copy my book. That’s happened a few times, too. But there’s a new kind of fraud that’s even worse, because it’s infiltrates the book page itself!  See The Fraud

How To Live Like A Jellyfish

As the most graceful creatures of the sea, jellyfish float effortlessly in their dark blue world.

One might think jellyfish are completely at the mercy of the ocean’s currents, but did you know that jellyfish are swimmers? There are two ways that jellyfish swim—one way is by collapsing their bell to propel themselves. Other types of jellyfish can move many small cilia to rhythmically push water in the direction of their choice (see video below). Gelatinous Glory!
