What Are You Waiting For?

Get a fresh quote of the day 5 days a week at

Every day we have the opportunity to make a fresh start, to begin anew something we’ve been putting off. Today’s quote from Dennis Waitley should encourage us to get off our duff and get on with making a GREAT life for ourselves.

Join me this morning as I break this down a little further, right here on 7 Minutes In the Morning!

PS – I mentioned Periscope in today’s show. If you haven’t checked it out yet, look it up in the Play Store and the Apple App Store. If you ARE on periscope, follow me @ThomRigsby… you’ll get to watch me record the show live!

Sitting In the Shade

Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone else planted a tree a long time ago.

It is a Quote-of-the-Day post today, this time from Warren Buffett.

As I say on today’s episode, I’m a really big fan of quotes because they capture some pretty powerful wisdom or experience in small, bite-sized nuggets that we can digest. Take this one for example…it seems pretty straight forward, I mean, sure, someone had to plant that tree, I get it. But how does that apply to the business we’re going to conduct today?

What trees are you using (leveraging!) to get results and be successful today?

What trees are you PLANTING today? ( Or are you poisoning the ground? )

Have a listen to today’s episode of 7 Minutes in the Morning and let me know what you think in the comments below.

PS – If you’re enjoying the show… share it with your friends! I put the buttons down there to make it easier for you!

Getting Crystal Clear


The first step in getting anything done, is knowing what you want to accomplish…what is the outcome! It sounds so simple but it is deceptively difficult! Take these guys in the picture. I’m sure they’re smart, and they think they can “manage” a complex problem. The trouble comes along when all that complexity distorts and clouds what is really important…the outcome!

So, what is the outcome YOU are looking for? Can you write it down in a simple sentence? If not, have a listen to today’s episode of 7 Minutes In the Morning…maybe you’ll find some clarity!
