Sometimes, because we all have a lot going on in our lives, Sunday becomes the day we try to "get it all done". Monday will be here soon enough. Give your body and spirit time to unplug and just "be". After all we're human-beings first and foremost NOT human-doings. Nourishing your soul requires some silence and seperation from a busy routine.

At times our feelings can be difficult to manage, but we should never let them prevent us from moving forward into a better life. Fear is just a feeling. It has no real power, except the authority you grant it.
We can think and plan life. We can think and plan a business. We can build brilliant business strategy and savvy life design. We can make sure we're on budget, we manage our time, and delivering high ROI that sees to the needs of work, friends, and family. But savvy and brilliant only go so far. If we want build a lasting business inside a meaningful life we need our head hardwired to our heart.
Here are 25 secrets I've learned about living and working intelligently from the heart.
1. Decide who you want to be and what you're building. It's not a process. It's a decision. We don't have enough future. See it and be it now.
People who live and work intelligently from the heart share the humanity of who they are. It's the in the humanity that we connect to them with our minds and with our hearts. They have boundaries to structure their work and their lives but their hearts touch other people. And it shows in the way that their lives and their work are art. You see the intelligence from the heart in the thoughtful unexpected gesture at the moment it's needed most, in the compassion and forgiveness offered by a human with strong sense of self, in the way they seem to breathe an intelligent heartfelt belief that people are meant to be all they are. Head and heart together make meaning in a way that intelligence alone cannot.
Celebration at the end of each step along your life journey is essential to validate your strength, determination and abilities.
Celebration also fuels your entire being for the next step on your path, even of that step is to slow down and relax a bit.
Celebrate how far you have come on your journey; it is way too easy to only see how far you have left to go.
