Excerpt from Book

CHAPTER ONE Mastering the First Pillar-- PLANS Without a plan, life just sort of happens to you. But with a plan, you''ll make sure your daily activities support what you want to create next week, next month, next year . . . until, at the end of your days, your activities will have contributed to creating and living a successful life. You don''t want to accidentally create your life. Your plans should be purposeful, so your life moves in the direction you desire, based on your ideal vision for yourself. My father is a veteran, a retired colonel in the U.S. Air Force. I''m proud of my Daddykins (my pet name for him) for all the years of service he gave to our country. Thanks to Dad''s success, I''m a veteran, too. Only my war wasn''t the Gulf War, Afghanistan, or Iraq--it was the turf war that comes from moving a lot as a kid. Today, when people ask me about my childhood "home," I think about the pink bedroom in Colorado, the yellow kitchen in Ohio, the whitewashed porch in Texas. I''ve moved nearly thirty times in all and hated every single one of them. The fact is, moving is a traumatic experience--considered the third-highest stressor behind death and divorce. So I survived by taking control of what I could. I became a master at packing and organizing. Before the movers had finished unloading the van, I had my room up and running. And I''d already moved my Barbie and Ken into their house. Every stuffed bear, bunny, and unicorn was neatly arranged in precise formation on my bed--exactly as they''d been in the house before--at attention for the Colonel''s inspection. My friends used to laugh at my perfectly clean bedroom, my compulsive list making, and my overwhelming urge to organize. But these experiences helped me with my life plan. The upheaval of my childhood taught me how to create order out of chaos, which laid the foundation for my work today. My background helped me build the systems I use today as The Productivity Pro
