“Editing” Your Life

Posted by: | Comments (2)

From the beginning of my career, editing has been a huge part of it. I was an English major, and started working in publishing after graduation. My first job was a dream: I edited radio programs, little mini-interviews with authors, and wrote scripts for the announcer. It was the precursor to what are now podcasts; this publisher was way ahead of the times!

(A side note of historical interest: Though the publisher was ahead of the times, the technology was not. We had the author interviews transcribed on paper, I would edit on paper, and the technician would actually splice the tape. I still chuckle when I think of how we used to do it.)

After the radio program was discontinued, I became a marketing writer, then a magazine editor, then I moved to editing books. My final formal book project was editing The Healing Code for Dr. Alex Loyd, which changed the course of my career. Yet because writing is still a big part of my life, I still find myself editing.

Which got me to thinking about how it’s a good idea to be editing our very lives, on an ongoing basis. To be most effective in our work, to be happy and fulfilled, to gain clarity on the meaning and direction of our life, we regularly need to do the same things I do to edit a book or article.

Your One Thing–and Mine

Posted by: | Comments (1)

I and a friend have been reading and discussing one of those few books that you just know, if you take this book’s message to heart, it can be life changing.

The book is called The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. 

The “surprisingly simple truth behind extraordinary results” is that if you ask and answer the right questions, you can get uncommon results. “Life is a question, and how we live it is our answer. How we phrase the questions we ask ourselves determines the answers that eventually become our life.”

One question trumps all the others. They call it the Focusing Question:

“What’s the ONE Thing I can do such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”

Think about that for a moment. Your answer to that question can focus what you do for the next moment, and also shape the direction of your whole life.

In terms of your healing, let me ask you this:

What is the ONE THING you need to heal such that, by healing it, everything else in your life would improve?”

I challenge you to actually write down your answer to that question.

In fact, if you will not only write it down but also share it with me, through this quick survey, you will be helping yourself to move in the direction of that ONE THING that will propel you toward that healing.

How? Just by asking and answering that question, the forces of your own mind and who knows what else (more on that in another post) will begin to come together to propel you in the direction of that very healing.

To help ME help YOU, would you also be so kind as to answer a SECOND question, also on that survey:

What is the ONE THING that I can do as your Healing Codes coach to help you YOU heal your ONE THING?

Go ahead, go here to take this two-question survey.

Then look for emails from me that will answer question #2, which will help you answer achieve the answer to your question #1.

And then, come back here to tell us how things start to change for you!
