In my experience there is nothing as challenging or as fulfilling as meeting a deadline. I also describe it as a beautiful happening because of the self-satisfaction and serenity that is found when it is achieved.

This will be a special challenge for you because in order to accomplish it there will be two people involved; one is you and the other is me.

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.” Napoleon Hill


  1. Write down on a clean sheet of paper what you can do this next week that will have the greatest, positive impact on your business.
  2. Make a commitment to yourself that you will meet this challenge.
  3. E-mail a copy of your challenge to and tell me that you will meet this challenge.
  4. Seven days from today, send me an e-mail ( and tell me how you made out on your challenge. If you succeeded, tell me how you feel? If you did not meet your challenge, tell me why not.
  5. Yes, I will respond to all who send me their challenge.

This is a lesson in personal development. You will be a winner if you at least start the process. You will be an even bigger winner if you meet your challenge.

This e-mail will be sent out to over 1,000 individuals. I am curious as to how many have the intestinal fortitude to step out of their comfort zone and take their business to new heights.
