Behind the Name Shift1...

Posted on May 8, 2018 at 4:20 PM

People often ask me where the name Shift1 comes from and why Shift1. Well... it's more of a concept than a name. Anyone who has traveled at a high rate of speed or pushed themselves to the limit knows that there is a point where everything seems to slow down and come into focus. It's usually right about when your mind tells you that you can't go any faster or push any harder. Suddenly you are comfortable again. This...

Expand Your Comfort Zone II

Posted on April 15, 2014 at 1:05 PM

"We shall have no better conditions in the future if we are satisfied with all those which we have at present." Thomas Edison


We have spoken previously on the importance of stepping out of our comfort zone in order to expand our lives and grow as a person. It is completely natural for most of us to want to stay within our familiar surroundings and have that comfort of knowing what to expect on a day t...

Obstacles or Opportunities???

“The bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you don’t change direction” – Anonymous

You know where you want to go and you have an idea of how you want to get there. That is the first step in your journey. It doesn’t matter if we are talking about business or life but the road to success is not straight and it definitely not smooth. If it was, everyone would be successful. Like a race car driver navigating a twisty section of the track you need t...

Action, Taking Dreams to Realtiy

Posted on March 10, 2014 at 1:10 PM

The human mind is a powerful tool. We can have grandeur visions of success and envision our accomplishments even before taking our first action step toward our goals. In fact, this vision is a necessary step toward moving forward and achieving our goals. We realistically might not know exactly where we will end up but we do have a vision of where we want to be and a desire to get there. Knowing where we want to go or where we want to be allows us to conceive a plan of action of how we are ...

Expanding Your Comfort Zone

Posted on February 27, 2014 at 12:05 PM

Everyday we hear about people wanting to make a change or wanting more out of life. Only that person can make that happen. From the moment we are born we are taught to follow the rules and taught how to “fit in”. As we grow up, we go to school, then graduate and get a job, maybe have a family and grow old reflecting on our accomplishments along the way. This is great and a definite necessity for a community to work together and progress but as an individual we need to step out...

The Step Before the First Step

Posted on January 28, 2014 at 10:45 AM

Taking the first step to accomplish your goals is definitely the most difficult.  We begin with a thought or an idea of where we want to go or where we want to be. This can be true in business or in life.  It is human nature to have an image of an end result of our actions but we need to have a plan of action on how to achieve those results. You may know where you want to be but without a defined road map or plan of action you are likely to lose focus and st...
