Nuggets of Wisdom shared for the One Last Thought podcast by Ido Singer ...

5:08 "Seek an employer who encourages professional development and who covers the cost of it. Seek one that permits the pursuit of your own side hustle so that you can develop multiple income streams."

5:44 Authoring books and seeking ways to better market them was the very thing that led me to the voice platform and the creation of Season 2 of the podcast to help others learn how to prepare for voice.

6:23 "When you create a list of your goals, don't just leave it there in a list. Take your goals and work backwards - reverse engineer - figure out what steps you need to take to get to the goal and put those steps in your calendar."

6:42 "Lean in to change."

6:47 "Don't sweat your selection of a major in school or of your first job. It's going to change throughout your lifetime."

7:28 "While you are working - either as an employee or as a consultant or business owner - be preparing for your next job or your next piece of business."

7:41 "Keep a journal." (Two of the books that I have authored and published and stemmed from my journal and ideas that I didn't let slip away because I had written them down.")

8:48 "Always be working with a coach, no matter what phase of life you find yourself. Whether you are an athlete, a business professional, a stay-at-home mom, a CEO of a company, everybody should be working with a coach."

9:10 "Use your voice. Speak your life intentions in to being. Let your brain hear your own voice. Visualize and speak your accomplishments in to being. It is so important for our brains to hear our own voices."

9:33 "Embrace new technology."

9:45 "When you shine your light, you co-create opportunity for others to shine."

9:54 "Stretch yourself by looking to learn things that are outside of your lane."

10:59 "Keep in mind that you have established 95% of your habits by the time you are age 35, so when you are facing change or if there is something that you deliberately want to change about your life - the 5% is pushing against the 95% that already has a routine in place. So know that you'll have to be very deliberate about it. Capture awareness of your thoughts. There are many things that you can study about this that are available for free out on the Internet. But I just want to plant that seed that changing something about your routine is not going to be easy. You will have to have awareness of your thoughts, adjust your mindset and be deliberate. You can do it!"

11:56 "Speak intentions about your future everyday. Visualize where you are going to be in moments of your future. Place yourself in those moments. And speak about them - speak about them out loud - to yourself, to your maker. Don't worry about the details of how you get there, but be intentional about visualizing being there."

12:31 Join me this week. Let's go out, and teach, inspire and connect!

Thank you for listening! Vickie
