Simplify Your Life - 5 Ways

Simplify Your Life - 5 Ways | Coaching Leaders |
The term simple living tends to conjure up thoughts of simple pleasures and a break from the rush of life. But getting from full capacity to a more simple life is more pragmatic than just slowing down.

What if someone offered you 5 proven ways to simplify your life, would you stop what your doing and listen to what she has to say? Or would you walk away?

I'm betting you'd take a moment to listen and want to find out how you might simplify your hectic life.

Here are the 5 ways to start you on the path of less tense thoughts and muscles.

1. Declutter and organize your life
2. Unplug from your electronics
3. Control you finances
4. Don't take things personally
5. Share your talents

Yep, that's the list and if you want to know more just click the picture or the title and Cristin Frank will expand on the list with some good common sense.

Think of the most engaging people you know. My guess is they're charming, interesting, and make you feel special.

We all want to be perceived that way, don't we? Here are several character traits you should work on if you want to be magnetic and likeable.


By nature children are curious, but we lose much of our inquisitiveness as we age. Yet it's such a vital trait, especially in business. Curiousity drives you to continuously learn about your industry, understand your customers, and create innovative products.

Kristy Schofield's curator insight, September 28, 2013 6:40 PM

I believe this- especially with curiosity 

donhornsby's curator insight, September 30, 2013 9:00 AM

My favorite people are direct and not afraid to share things about themselves that might even make them look bad. In doing so they convey a sense of humility, honesty, and vulnerability that work to lower people's defenses. If you can do that, you're well on your way to engaging with them.

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership

Learning The Softer Side Of Leadership | Coaching Leaders |

Leaders' primary objective is to empower others to make decisions and take actions that are aligned with the organization’s vision, purpose, and strategy. These nuances are the softer side of leadership, beyond the technical skills that you have already mastered.


Leadership is the "eighth wonder of the world." It is better seen and felt than defined and said. It’s easy to intellectualize, but elusive to actualize.


The world’s most impactful leaders in all arenas, from business to government, understand the paradox that although leadership starts with the leader, it’s never about the leader. This wisdom should be emulated and applied by everyone who aspires to leadership.
