Guy Monroe is my singing coach. I love working with him. He’s plugged in, tapped in, turned on, and a wizard at teaching vocal mastery.

Recently we were enjoying his magic coffee before my singing lesson began when he asked about my activities. I rattled off a few things I was doing that week —

– released my 51st book 1,800 Conversion Secrets

1800 conversion secrets– appeared in my 15th movie The Meta-Secret

– did back to back radio shows

– negotiated deals for new audio products

– set up a radio campaign for Attract Money Now

– did a two hour photo shoot with my new car

– prepared for Unseminar 8.

– prepped for overseas travel to speak in Poland

– continued guitar lessons with Mathew Dixon

– found time to read new books

– found time to write new blog posts

– did Miracles Coaching call

– dealt with my mom going in the hospital, an elderly kitty slowly dying, etc.

That’s just some of the things I was doing that week.

Of course, I added that I made time for meditation, reflection, cigar smoking, hot tubbing, masterminding, and more.

Guy’s eyes looked HUGE as he took in my inventory of activities.

“What’s the secret to getting all these results?” he asked.

“I don’t do all of this at the same time,” I explained.

“Right now I’m talking to you and having coffee,” I added. “That’s what this moment calls for. In the next moment I’ll be in your sound booth and singing. After that I’ll drive my space-ship Spyker home. When I get home, there will be something in that moment to do. By living in each moment, things get done.”

Guy nodded. He’s a brilliant teacher and a high-energy dynamo, so I knew he understood.

I added, “It’s when you think about all the stuff you want to do that it gets overwhelming. When you stop and breathe and relax and just do what’s in this moment to do, all is well.”

What’s in this moment for you to do?

Ao Akua,

Joe

    Hey Joe, a similar list is every day on my desk too… Ok, not for the movies etc but other stuff, and I can tell you… it’s a LIST… Every Day…

    Succeeding is just the way to work through it and the amazing thing of a bunch of things to do and to get done is that they will give you more energy then anyone can imagine…

    I get frequently questions on how I do it, on how I am able to keep up doing it with 4 kids on my shoulders to take care of too, being an independent and single mom beside.. I dunno.. I just do it, I don’t have time to stand still, I get tired of doing nothing, so I keep my self up and running and above all….Smiling…! I only do the things I really love to do and I leave the rest up to someone else..

    By the way, did your Brief Cases already arrived…?

    Love, Light & a Lot of Laughter

    Joe how come you don’t offer the book via download online?
    I don’t want it printed because it will take to much time and will cost to much.

      I understand. It’s simply a new business policy for books with information that powerful.

    Sorry I forgot to say I am not from the US.
    Fact is it will take to much time to get here in Europe-if you even ship it.

    Now that’s the Dr. Joe I like to see, smilin’ your face off! Man alive – life is moving just a wee bit too quickly for me Joe- any suggestions as to how to get away from that timid Rabbit mindset, feels like I’m holding back from true energy?

      Thank you, my friend! Best thing to do is face the fear and show it who’s boss!

  6. Hi Joe,

    This post is very inspiring! 😀

    And the right time for me to read it. It sure is a trap for many people – myself included – to think about all the things you want to and have to do, and often it overwhelms you and you get stressed out…

    So I will dedicate this moment to be 100% present in what I do! And right here right now I’m writing this comment. Nothing else! 😀

    C ya Joe,
