More than 138,000,000 people are regularly exposed to noise levels labeled as excessive by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Partnerships Worth Exploring: - Breathing Space Blog

Have you ever thought about teaming up with a coach to receive the big-picture type of guidance that you might not otherwise be getting on the job? Considering the kinds of things you want to achieve on the job and throughout your career, could a coach be helpful for you? The late Psychologist Harry Olson said that virtually all professional and Olympic athletes have personal coaches to help them perform to their maximum potential and deal with competition.

The better such athletes become, and the more elite their status, the more they need and rely on coaches. Why? Because the higher they rise in their fields, the more critical their moves become, and the more vital personal feedback becomes in avoiding mistakes. A personal coach offers the competitive edge! And, the enhanced potential to achieve Breathing Space.

Many high-achieving career professionals, with the aid of coaches, mentors, or other advisors devise strategies to ensure success and to capitalize on new opportunities. Olson said that a career coach can help "diagnose and sort out your situation and opportunities, offer new strategies for dealing with office politics and competition, and help you with vital stress management skills."

Year End Breathing Space Perspective - Breathing Space Blog

A reader asks: In your books you write that we are control and responsible for how our time is used each day, but I don't feel that way. How do I increase my feeling of control and sense of responsibility for how my time is consumed?

The Breathing Space Perspective:

1. Begin to recognize your routine, time-guzzling behaviors such as ceremoniously arranging the items on your desk, over-reading the newspaper, or scouring the web.

2. Avoid playing the victim. Stop believing that external circumstances cause you to be time-pressed while not acknowledging your participation and willingness to be a victim.

3. Take ownership; that is, lay claim and accept responsibility for what occurs in your life. "Own" your time.

Increasing Your Luck - Breathing Space Blog

Professor Richard Wiseman discusses “How to Get Lucky” in The Skeptical Enquirer:

"Open your mind: consider chance opportunities. Lucky people regularly have them, unlucky people don't. To determine why, I gave lucky and unlucky people a newspaper and asked them to tell me how many photos were inside. On average, unlucky people spent about two minutes on this exercise. Lucky people spent seconds. Why? Because on the second page of the paper, in huge type, was the message ‘Stop counting: There are 43 photographs in this newspaper.’ Lucky people tended to spot the message. Unlucky ones didn't.”

"I put a second message half-way through the paper: ‘Stop counting: tell the experimenter you have seen this and win $250.’ Again, the unlucky people failed to see the message.”

"The lesson: unlucky people miss chance opportunities because they are too busy looking for something else. Lucky people see what is there rather than just what they are looking for."
