1. Set a few important goals.
2. Establish a game plan.
3. Execute and commit to seeing it through to the end.

It’s irresponsible to start the day, week, month or 3rd quarter unfocused, unprepared, and uncommitted.
Yet, that is the reality for far too many people. But it does not have to be that way for you.
AND…if you want to learn the fastest way to achieve any goal in record time, then check be sure to check this out.

Here’s a whiteboard animation I’ve just completed for a long term client Maria Odeyemi of Coaching2Transform.com

Once again thank you for my very first ever You Tube Video ‘Stop Struggling with Your Business’ whiteboard animation. I hope that it truly speaks and captures the heart of all small business owners who want to work ‘on’ their business as well as working ‘in’ their business.
26. Read every day. Read personal development books, biographies, subject matter books, fiction. Just read. Apart from helping you relax and focus, reading also keeps you on top of your game and might well help stave off many diseases.
27. Don’t do technology in bed. Seriously. It’s bad for sleep, it’s bad for posture and it’s bad for your sex life.
28. Protect your thinking. It’s the most important thing you have along with your health. Don’t let others infect you with negativity or destructive mental patterns and thoughts.
29. Take responsibility. If you want love, money, success, happiness, joy… take responsibility for it. 100% responsibility. Stop blaming others. Your life has nothing to do with them, it’s down to you.
30. Give compliments every day.
31. Give 100% and when you’re done, stop. If something is worth doing, do it well. Then do something else.
32. Do less. Do it better. Stop rushing. Work out what is really important. Do that.
33. Spend time on personal development. Have a vision for your life, set goals, define daily actions, hold yourself accountable, keep a record, visualise, form a mastermind team.
34. Spend time with inspirational people. You become most like the people you spend the most time with… you know that.
35. Hug. Hold hands. Kiss. Embrace. Maybe not random strangers but definitely those that you love.
36. Do one act of random kindness every day.
37. Work hard. Be the best that you can be. Make your work your masterpiece, whatever it is. Be the best salesperson you can be, or the best managing director, or the best firefighter, or the best dish washer…

Health and safety cartoon – The Importance of Proper Health and Safety Practice in the Workplace is Vital to the Success of a Business
Office Health and safety hazards cartoon. Over 50 hazards to be spotted in this office safety cartoon. Hazards in a office environment. Spot the health and safety hazards cartoon. Numerous health and safety hazards illustrated in this office hazards cartoon. Health and safety cartoon for training purposes
This safety cartoon colorfully illustrates some common place accidents that may happen at work.
There is nothing worse for a business than a worker injury. Sometimes it can be life changing and even fatal making some proper training and understanding of basic practices a vital part of all workplace training. No one should be like Tom in the top right on the ladder. He is too high up, he should be at least one step down so his body can rest on the ladder, and ever worse is his friend Jeff below who is chatting on a phone when he should be spotting Tom by holding the ladder steady. The fact that it’s propped up on a pallet is on a whole other level of danger. Ladders must always be setup in a safe fashion with all 4 legs firmly planted on the ground, never balanced on other objects. A fall from a ladder at that height can be fatal. At least Tom is wearing safety gear because he is going to need it soon.
Mark is likely to get food poisoning from that kitchen area that the office has clearly neglected. Leaving food around to rot can contaminate other food which could lead to a series of inter office food poisoning, which isn’t as dangerous as improper ladder use but could be very costly for a business and in some cases can be very dangerous. Adam on the left is also using a ladder in a very dangerous way, it is the most common form of injury and it is because of people not taking ladder use seriously. Always have a spotter. What’s even worse is the toxic waste casually stored next to him! If you work in an environment with hazardous waste it is not only important but it is the law that it be disposed of properly and environmentally. Leaving it around the workplace can cause seriously negative health side effects.
Martin seems to be struggling with his photocopy machine but it is no doubt because the fuse has been blown. The outlet that the machine is plugged into has so many extra cords coming off of it that it’s likely being over charged. This can be extremely dangerous. Electrical fires are almost impossible to identify when they start and before anyone knows they are going, they have burned out half the inside of the building. Overcharging an outlet is reckless and dangerous, not to mention that this office has them stretched out all over the place for people to walk and trip on. Make sure that the outlet can support the voltage that you will be drawing from it, and if it can handle some power bar extensions keep them tidy and out of people’s way. If you are going to setup an electric heater like the one off of this same outlet, dragged out into the middle of the room, make sure it is not near anything flammable. These office workers have it setup near a stack of documents, now not only would it be terrible to lose some hard earned work because the pages got scorched, but it could possibly burn the building down. Electric heaters are often not efficient ways of heating and should only be used sparingly and must be used safely.

An article explaining why quality matters when hiring the best professional cartoonist for the job.
If you find yourself in need of a cartoonist in today’s market of online freelancing websites, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the number of people to choose from. Different artists from all over the World charging different prices, with different skillsets and different qualities. There are literally tens of thousands of options to choose from. It may be tempting to choose the cheapest option you see – $2 for a cartoon may look great, but when the average price for a cartoon can be between $20 and $100 – you have to ask why it is being offered for so cheap. The answer is simple: They are an amateur cartoonist! You would not hire a boy-scout with a surgeon’s badge to operate on you, so why settle for anything less than the best when choosing your cartoonist. You may be asking why it is so important to spend the extra money on a professional cartoonist. Well,
Can the amateur complete your cartoon in the timescale you require?
A cheap, amateur cartoonist may tell you that they will complete your cartoon to a high standard in the time span you need. But ask yourself this question. If they are offering their services so cheaply, how many clients do you think they have at a single time? They are likely taking up all the work they possibly can, meaning you may be waiting days longer than expected for….
Sub-standard or downright terrible work
A cartoonist is an artist. Why hire an amateur when you could hire an artist with over 33 years of experience in the business. You can rest assured that a professional will deliver you your product on time and to the standards you deserve and expect.
The amateur cartoonist can’t possibly deliver the product you need for the price they quote
Would you use an amateur dentist to sort your teeth out? I don’t think so!
Sure, the amateur cartoonist quoting an insanely small fee may be a brilliant artist able to draw wonderfully. However, if they are earning so little from each drawing, they simply cannot afford the tools which are necessary in the digital World. Special programs are needed to digitally enhance the images, prepare them for quality print-outs or transference to online products. Without the graphical design skills and technology, you simply won’t be receiving the high-quality product you expect unless you work with a professional.

"Working to make you and your clients smile!"
Pick TWO of the three options!
When commissioning Corporate Cartoons you must choose only two out of the three options.
Good+Fast = Expensive Choose this and I'll postpone every other project on my drawing board, my round of golf or give up my footy match ticket and work day and night to get your job done. It WILL NOT BE CHEAP though!
Good+Cheap = Slow Choose good and cheap and I'll still do a great job at a discounted price. But you'll have to be patient while I fit you in after my higher paying clients, updating my web site, going down the gym, my footy matches, rounds of golf and liquid lunches!
Fast+Cheap = Inferior Choose this option at your peril. It will still be delivered on time but it will be inferior, I'll cut as many corners as possible. You know the saying 'You get what you pay for!' The least favorable option in my opinion!
