While working in my office, there are times I become over loaded with the enormity of responsibility. I will become fixated with what most be done. What I have no idea how to solve or fix. During these moments I feel as though I can not accomplish all that must be done to keep moving forward.

It is during times like this that I realize I have two choices. One is to walk away and act as if it will all take care of itself, or take a little break and refresh.

Here on my desk at the top right hand corner is a candle. During “break and refresh” times I will light it the candle. While watching it burn, noticing its emanating light, smelling its aroma, and seeing the melting wax that something transpires within me.

It become refreshed and refocused on what I can do rather than on what I can not do. I catch myself doing a four step process that I am now calling my “MELT” system of refreshing and refocusing.

Tuesday morning at 6:30 (California time) I plan to share for the first time my “Melt” process of refreshing and refocusing. Plan to call me at 805.399.1000 and use your participation code of 593915 to engage with me live. Make yourself a cup of hot tea or coffee and let’s spend 30 minutes together learning the four step process of “MELT” to refocus and refresh.

I am Matt and I am your friend
