8 Things Ridiculously Successful People Do Before 8 AM

8 Things Ridiculously Successful People Do Before 8 AM

Starbucks continues to grow relentlessly, with CEO Howard Schultz just announcing plans to open 500 new stores a year over the next five years. Much of this growth will happen in China, where Schulz is undeterred by the recent economic slowdown.

While many factors contribute to Starbucks’ immunity to economic trends, most are driven by Schultz. Starbucks’ massive size hasn’t stopped him from realizing his vision of creating a company that’s about much more than making money selling coffee; Schultz is committed to selling an experience and a lifestyle, both of which are inspired by a trip to Italy as a child, where he was drawn to the cafe scene.

Schultz is fiercely loyal to his values. When asked how he balances his values with strategic thinking, he said,

“Unfortunately, we live in a sea of mediocrity in all walks of life. We live amid a fracturing of civility. Everywhere we go as consumers, we’re getting people who don’t want to reach into our hearts or know who we are; they want to reach into our wallets and get some money. The only way we can succeed and sustain growth is linked to the basic elements of one cup of coffee, one customer, and one barista at a time.”

Schultz views company strategy and his personal values as one and the same. To this end, he has put massive amounts of money into healthcare for Starbucks’ employees (even those who are part time), into free college...

Why the Best Leaders Are Great Followers

Why the Best Leaders Are Great Followers

When I first became an acquistions editor, I took a proposal for a book on leadership to our Pub Board. (This is the group in a publishing company that determines what gets published and what doesn’t.) The consensus was that the book was not commercially viable. The market was just too small.

However, in 1998 everything changed. Thomas Nelson published the The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell. I was the VP of Marketing at that time. My job was to help make the book a success.

Fortunately, John not only wrote a great book, but he worked tirelessly to help promote it. The result? The book hit the New York Times list and has now sold almost two million copies. It is still in Amazon’s top 1,000 books.

Since that time an entire industry has sprung up around the topic of leadership. It includes books, magazines, blogs, conferences, and even graduate degrees from major universities. Apparently, the market is vast. Why? Because nearly everyone sees him or herself as a leader.

But where are the followers?

I contend that if you want to be a great leader, you must first become a great follower. Although...

11 Reasons Teaching Is the Best (Even When It Isn't)

11 Reasons Teaching Is the Best (Even When It Isn't)

This is why I don’t want a normal job.

About 39 times a year, I question why I went into teaching. Everywhere you look there are articles about low teacher morale, the politics of education and statistics about why no one is going into teaching anymore.

Sadly, many of those articles do reflect the reality of classrooms today. It is a hard, hard job.

But teachers already know that.

As the end of the year approaches, we don’t need another article about all the difficulties and obstacles teachers face today. Awareness is great, and all teachers wish the general public had a better understanding of what we do each day, but what we all need now is a pep talk.

We want to finish strong and remember all the good things about our job, in the midst of a time where many feel exhausted and under appreciated.

It’s a crazy life. A life that one can only understand once in the trenches: tying the shoes and wiping the tears and teaching the words.

There are some days where on my way home, I am convinced that I am never stepping foot back into my classroom again. It can go on without me. You can find me working at an animal shelter under a heap of puppies. I will just be laying there, arms stretched as puppies and kittens bound across me and lick my face. That is what I will do.

But alas, I wake up the next morning, and I walk into my classroom, and I tie the shoes, and I wipe the tears, and I teach the words.

The 11 Most Important Phrases In A Marriage

The 11 Most Important Phrases In A Marriage

Happy couples regularly say “I love you,” but those three little words alone aren’t enough to keep the spark alive through the ups and downs of a long marriage. 

To that end, we asked relationship experts to tell us the most important phrases husbands and wives can say to each other. Read them below:

1. “I am so lucky I married you.”

“We all need affirmation and appreciation. We want to know that our spouse is in love with us and that they’re happy they made the decision to be with us for a lifetime. We like to think that they’re thinking about the marriage from time to time. And when this phrase gets blurted out every now and then, it makes a partner feel very loved.” — Pepper Schwartz, professor of sociology and

8 Insightful Reads Every Highly Sensitive Person Will Understand

8 Insightful Reads Every Highly Sensitive Person Will Understand

Do you consider yourself to be highly sensitive? If so, you’re not alone. Below, we gathered 10 stories surrounding highly sensitive people, ranging from blog posts to expert advice.
1. 10 Reasons To Be Glad You’re A Highly Sensitive Person

“Sensitive people get torn between speaking up for what they feel is right or sitting back because they don’t want a violent type of reaction [from others],” said Elaine Aron, a lead researcher on the personality type.

From tears to cheers, if you’re a highly sensitive person you have a lot of feelings you express on a regular basis. And in a culture in which emotions are sometimes seen as “weak,” expressing them can often feel like a liability rather than an asset.

The personality trait of being a highly sensitive person, which affects both men and women, can play a large role in daily interactions — and that’s actually really good news. If you’re feeling a little low about your emotional nature, here are a few reasons to instead celebrate your sensitivity.

2. 16 Habits Of Highly Sensitive People

Do you feel like you reflect on things more than everyone else? Do you find yourself worrying about how other people feel? Do you prefer quieter, less chaotic environments?

If the above sound true to you, you may be highly sensitive. The personality trait — which was first researched by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D., in the early 1990s — is relatively common, with as many...

5 Science-Backed Reasons Youngest Children Win At Life

5 Science-Backed Reasons Youngest Children Win At LifeThe baby of a family gets no respect.

Of all the siblings, they’re usually the ones singled out as troublemakers, irresponsible, attention-hungry, get-away-with-anything brats. On top of all that, for most of their childhoods, the baby is the easy, gullible targets for older siblings’ pranks.

But research on birth order has found that youngest children really aren’t all that bad. In fact, to the disbelief of eldest siblings everywhere, the characteristics that made last-borns the butt of family jokes actually do the opposite in adult life: They help youngest sibs live up to their fullest potential. And, as science shows, they are way more fun to be around. With big personalities and a penchant for entertainment, last-borns are the family’s grand finale.

Below, 5 research-backed reasons that the babies of the bunch are actually the family’s crown jewel.  

1. They’re more adventurous.

Unlike firstborns, who by default assume the leadership role in the sibling bunch, the youngest have to search for their own “unoccupied family niche,” according to Frank Sulloway, a birth order researcher and author of Born to Rebel.

To find their place, last-borns are more likely to experiment and take more risks in order to assert their own talents and identities. “For this reason,” Sulloway writes in his research, “they are often more exploratory and open to experience.”

2. They’re probably hilarious.

The 10 Worst Examples of Management Speak

The 10 Worst Examples of Management Speak

When Ludwik Zamenhof created Esperanto in the 19th century, the idea was to have a language that would help foster the conditions for world peace.

Two hundred years on, a new vernacular has been developed which does the exact opposite. If you’ve sat through a meeting or applied for a job in the last ten years, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

For most people, exposure to the dreaded “business speak” can result in a quiet, despondent grief and gnashing of teeth. Here are the ten worst examples, in my opinion, of this God-awful language.


1. Close of Play

Remember when the word “play” referred to spending time with your friends or your toys, when your only worry was what your parents were going to make for supper?

Not any more. “Play” is now the 8 hours you spend doing thankless menial tasks, and its’ closing is a small, fervent joy you look forward to every day.

Leadership Choices for a Positive Future

Leadership Choices for a Positive Future

Choice - where you place your focus - influences action. The person who taught you to drive an automobile told you to keep both hands on the steering wheel and look straight ahead. Diverting your attention to the right or left causes the automobile to move in that direction.

This principle - also known as Target Fixation or the Moth Effect - applies to other areas of human behavior as well. Have you ever had an encounter with a friend or family member that you knew was going to end up in an augment? Did your belief influence you to act in ways that ensured your conflict would happen?

Likewise, your choices as a leader can be the difference between a team that simply does what it is told and the volunteered commitment that leads to excellence. Here are four choices you should make today to achieve the positive future you desire.

Trust matters.
Trust is the foundation of all great relationships. Its absence creates a barrier that hinders cooperation and team work. Imagine what would be different...

11 Totally BS Things Life Is Too Short For

11 Totally BS Things Life Is Too Short ForLife is too short! Especially for these 11 common worries that just aren’t worth your energy. This is about to make you instantly feel better... Drop these worries and start putting your care and intention toward things that actually MATTER.

1. Feeling guilty because you skipped ONE workout
It’s okay to take days off and not tell yourself that you’re a failure for it. As they say, it takes more than one workout to make a better body, and it takes more than one cheat day to ruin all your hard work.

2. Crying over bad boyfriends
Before they get the title of boyfriend, they better earn it. And if he makes you cry or leaves you at home feeling sorry for yourself, he ain’t worth it. You don’t have enough time to spend any of it wasted at home crying.

3. Working a job you hate
Leave it for someone who might be happy in that job, and demand that your very limited and precious time and energy are spent on something you believe in. Life’s too short to be miserable for 40 hours a week.

4. Insulting yourself
In the bathroom mirror, when you look at your Instagram photos, when you try on clothes... All the millions of chances you get to criticize your body are also millions of chances to respect yourself, compliment yourself, and build up more self esteem by being your own loudest cheerleader.

5. Uncomfortable underwear
Yeah, really.

6. Not sharing your dreams with your friends, family, and loved ones
