Soul Goals

Written by Julie Jordan Scott

Last night I was talking with some of my dearest friends about Manifesting our Dreams throughrepparttar Power of Goalsetting.

As we were sharing, I explainedrepparttar 101958 way I manifested my current radio show. It all started when more than 5 years ago I wrote my 100 lifetime goals. Included onrepparttar 101959 list was my own radio show. This year, that came to fruition.

I also mentioned adding some distinctly "unbusinessy" goals on my list. These goals ironically haverepparttar 101960 power to significantly impactrepparttar 101961 bottom line of all my entrepreneurial and personal growth efforts.

These Goals are what I call my "Soul Goals".

As I write, I am looking at a simple glass vase on my desk. In it are three roses and an iris. Justrepparttar 101962 act of looking at them makes me smile. In another favorite workspace of mine,repparttar 101963 kitchen table, there is a bouquet of gloriously fragrant huge deep red roses. Last night I openedrepparttar 101964 door on my corner cabinet andrepparttar 101965 scent of these magnificent flowers hypnotized me, filling me with wonder.

Onrepparttar 101966 same 100 Lifetime Goals list, I wrote "have fresh flowers in my office and home at all times". These delectable floral arrangements from my own garden are a fulfillment of that goal. It is an ongoing goal, a soul goal that in turn makes me more productive in my adventures in business and life.

This weekend I saw many friends I had not seen in a long time.

In many conversations, I included, "Are you able to get away from your office for lunch duringrepparttar 101967 week? I would love to invite you tolunch so we can catch up and simply spend time together."

Another goal on my list is "Have lunch with one friend weekly". This is abare minimum goal. It is also one I have overlooked as I busily careened downrepparttar 101968 mompreneur path. Seeing all my beloved (and neglected) friends this week end reminded me how important it is to have these regularly scheduled heart connection times.

Without scheduling, they simply won't happen!

None of these folks knew about allrepparttar 101969 current excitement in my life, nor did I knowrepparttar 101970 excitement in their lives. One of my friend is having significant challenges with her teen aged son, another friend is still inrepparttar 101971 same job she wanted to quit when we met six years ago.

How to Wind a Cuckoo Clock

Written by Dave Balch

We have a lot of clocks in our home. Most of them make some sort of noise onrepparttar hour (steam trains, cartoon characters, birds, dogs, horses, wild animals; I'm not kidding!), some of them onrepparttar 101957 half-hour as well, and one that even chimes onrepparttar 101958 quarter hour. We just like clocks. Needless to say, we are usually aware ofrepparttar 101959 time! Some of my favorites arerepparttar 101960 cuckoo clocks that we purchased on a trip torepparttar 101961 Black Forest, and they needed some TLC: cleaning, oiling, and adjusting.

Enter Skip,repparttar 101962 clock repairman who believes inrepparttar 101963 long-lost art of house calls. He tookrepparttar 101964 clocks back to his shop and fixed them up beautifully. When he returned them, he placed them back onrepparttar 101965 wall with loving care and proceeded to explainrepparttar 101966 "proper" way to wind them.

1. Be sure to pull straight down orrepparttar 101967 chain can come off ofrepparttar 101968 gear orrepparttar 101969 weight may bang againstrepparttar 101970 wall, leaving a mark.

2. Pull only one chain at a time because pulling more than one at a time

a) causesrepparttar 101971 chains to be pulled at an angle and

b) puts too much stress onrepparttar 101972 hanger onrepparttar 101973 wall and/or repparttar 101974 back ofrepparttar 101975 clock.

3. Don't pull them too quickly because they may come off of their gears.

4. When settingrepparttar 101976 clock it is better to turnrepparttar 101977 hands counter clock-wise because ofrepparttar 101978 nature ofrepparttar 101979 internal mechanism.

...and so on, and so forth. For about 15 minutes, Skip explainedrepparttar 101980 finer points of something that seemed so simple and so obvious, that I couldn't believe what I was hearing.
