PROBLEM: I like to give the impression that I am not technically challenged, but I really have a fear factor that lingers deep down within. If I think about it, I am actually letting this fear factor control me and attack my self confidence when it comes to modern day technology. I think the underlying fact is I am on information overload. Every time I think I have mastered one thing technically, something new comes along and I am back at square one.
SOLUTION: What I have discovered is there are tons of resources available to help with this challenge that I am facing. I am also finding out I am not alone in these challenges. So people need to know this is not as uncommon as I originally thought. There are others that are facing the same challenges I am. Once I discovered that it wasn't just me. I knew I was on my road to recovery. Now what I have to do is take action.
I find if I go back to my problem/solution steps I will be able to solve this. I always have to ask myself 3 simple questions:
My "What?" in this situation: I acknowledge that I am having a problem with certain areas of technology.
My "So What?": I have to ask myself if the problems I am facing with technology are something that I can resolve, or should I engage in getting help from others who have the expertise to resolve my issues.
My "Now What?": I am going to analyze what is best for my situation. There are certain areas of technology that I feel very comfortable doing myself. But for those areas that have me challenged, and hold me back from successfully marketing my business and furthering my journey, I need to seriously think about hiring this portion out and leaving it to the experts.
Based on my above technology challenges I am going to take the following action:
Research where my current business needs are.
Talk with business associates to find out who they might recommend.
Within 30 days from today, hire the experts I need to get the ball rolling and my business marketing more successful.
I want to change my Tech NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO to Tech YES in no time.
This is a great Tip for all of you facing the same dilemmas on your journey to success.

Recently I have attended several training sessions that were amazing. From each training, or event I attend I always pick up a few special tips that I love incorporating into my FunSchway way of life. One of the tips I recently incorporated was that of always being ready. This was particularly important when it comes to public speaking. There may be many times when you are preparing for a presentation so much that you forget the importance of practicing your presentation and rehearsal.

I am a collector of what I refer to as Golden Chicken Nuggets and I am proud of it! Whenever I attend a training class or any type I am always in search of those little nuggets of information that are definitely something that I can use in my tool box of skills I need to inspire and revitalize me. I am a strong advocate of taking any training offered (even if it is a repeat of a course I have already taken) several times knowing it will always provide me with new nuggets of information I didn't remember from the first time.

I know there are often times when we get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of our daily routines that we forget just how good we have it. I try to always stop for a moment and think about what I actually have. Sometimes it is necessary to just stop for a moment. We need to take the time to realize just how lucky we are. We need to develop an appreciation for what we have not necessarily what we don't have. I call this developing your "Attitude of Gratitude".

Thoughtfulness is something that many people think about, but often do not act upon. It takes so little to be thoughtful and I feel it goes along way no matter when it takes place. Here are just a few ideas about being thoughtful that I keep in my tool box. I share these with you as a sample of the "Random Acts of Kindness" that I apply to my life daily. These help me through the day, and make the day of those that are the recipients.

Time management can cause major stress. There are a number of things you can do to help alleviate that stress. I am in the process of preparing for a gathering in my home that requires quite a bit of coordination. I had a similar event last year and was so stressed out by the time the event happened that I was not able to fully appreciate the festivities. I told myself that I would never let that happen again. Since that time I have given the organization of that event a lot of thought and came up with a few tips that I am using for this event which will make it smooth sailing for me. Here is what I have put into place.
