Zig Ziglar

One of my favorite motivational speakers is Zig Ziglar. He had a way to deliver a message in a very positive way.

One of the things that he frequently talks about is "Automobile University." Where you use the downtime in your commute to listen to inspirational podcast or CDs.

Being Productive

Zig Ziglar was all about personal productivity. He's "Day before Vacation" speech is correct. As we tend to get a lot of things done when there is a goal with a deadline.

There are many ways to get productive at the office and selfdevelopmentsecrets.com has some great tips. There's a great article called "How To Be More Productive In Your Workplace (And Everywhere Else)."

I listened to a tape in the late 80's or early 90's. The man suggested that before sitting up in bed in the morning, you say out loud "I feel terrific!" three times and mean it. I have done that off and on since then. In particular, I try to remember to say it when I am feeling anything but terrific. My husband often thinks I am a bit wacky but it helps me :) Do you know if that was Zig? Congrats on completing the A to Z! Emily | My Life In Ecuador
