005 – John Maxwell on Winning and Learning…


The guru John Maxwell writes some amazing books.  One quote of his that I have fully embraced is “Sometimes You Win and Sometimes You Learn.”  This weekend I spent watching my daughter compete in the state championship soccer tournament.  They didn’t win all the games but they did place 3rd.  They will get better by playing against. A team that played better then them but it only made them better.  Life is like this.  Listen for more on this podcast.

004 – Wake Up and Goals People!


In this podcast we talk about a ritual a mentor of mine Peter Hurley does every day on his instagram.  Every day he wakes up and records his wake up and goals.

We should be striving to accomplish goals in our lives.  Some of our biggest goals in life take daily goals that are smaller in nature but when done consistently help us to accomplish what we want to do.  Lose weight, get out of debt, learn a new skill, adopt a new hobby.  All of these take time.  Get up and prime your mind.  Tony Robbins calls this priming.  Wake up and set some goals.

003 – What do you do when you are faced with a problem?


Welcome to the daily impact.  Today we are discussing what do you do when you are faced with a problem?  Most people give up.  Most people look for the path of least resistance.  Embrace the problem and look at it as an opportunity.  An opportunity to learn, grow, and overcome obstacles as they come.

In this video I show you how to use a combination of apps on the Apple Watch to get that optimal workout in the gym.  Far too often I see people just going through the movements in the gym and not taking the time to feel the muscle in the proper form and to put the muscle through the proper load.  That is why you see people in the gym not focusing, not doing the proper load, and one year later they look the exact same if not in many cases they look more out of shape but go to the gym every day.  Time Under Tension or TUT is one of the most critical aspects of exercise that far too many people over look.  This video shows you how I use a combination of apps to ensure you get that Time Under Tension for the targeted interval .  Through this process let the Apple Watch do your counting of reps and time so you can focus on form and contracting the targeted muscle through each workout.

Before you attempt to set things right, make sure you see things right.

Time for a Re-Branding of The Goal Oriented Life

Make An Impact

2018 has been a year of many changes and changes yet to come.  Many people find themselves avoiding change, avoiding the unknown, would hate to rattle the cage.  I have to admit I struggle with this many times.  I start asking questions and wonder what would happen.  You know every time I have I have come out Better, Stronger, More Motivated!

My PASSION and my GOAL for my business is to help other people build a successful life and business around their personal brand.  Peter Szpakowski

While working on projects coming up I started to question the name The Goal Oriented Life.  Sure setting goals is something everyone should do but ultimately living a life of goals was just not powerful enough for the brand I wanted to build.  I want to Make an Impact!  I want people to Make an Impact.  Make an Impact in everything they do.  Making an Impact in Life and Business.  Leaving a legacy

Over the next few weeks I will be working on creating more content, will be working on new project that I bring to you here on PeterSzpakowski.com and my social media outlets. (Podcasts, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram).  Make an Impact will be the theme we us on these sites.  TGOLife is not deal.  I will still be using that in my hashtag fields.  Any post if space is available will use the #MakeAnImpact #TGOLife and #PeterSzpakowski hash tags.

So why am I focusing on PeterSzpakowski.com as my source of domain name?  Well I have noticed this in other trends.  Cliff Ravenscraft who more traditionally has been known as The Podcast Answer Man has recently been following this rebranding himself.  While he is still the podcast answer man he wants his name to become known as so much more.  I am following suit and want my name Peter Szpakowski to be known as Making an Impact.  Regardless of what my business brand is I want to be known by my name and how I help people in Life and Business.  My Passion and my Goal for my business is to help other people build a successful life and business around their personal brand.  I want to help people excel to levels never felt before.  To help them accomplish every goal they set out to accomplish.

Thank you for visiting.  I look forward to bringing you more.

3 Easy Steps that will make you more successful!

I have always been a person who needed to have a task list. A list every day that I would work off of to get my work done. Did not matter if it was personal or business I always had a list. It would be painful in the days before smartphones and have to copy my tasks every day in my Franklin Planner. For those that don’t know what a Franklin Planner is because I am showing my age, it’s a form of a Calendar, Notes, and Task list in a 3 ring binder. Those were the days… Ha. Things got so much easier when we switched to smartphones right? Wrong! I tracked everything in my smartphone in Calendars, Notes, and Tasks lists. My favorite was the tasks lists and it still is my favorite today. I had task lists for Personal, Work, and Business. I would have 30 – 40 tasks to complete a day! And they were setup to auto repeat. This by no means is the right way to track tasks. Any task list close to this is overkill and will not help you progress or succeed in moving forward. In fact it will prevent you from moving forward because you lose sight in what the important tasks are.

I have found a way that I would like to share with each of you that helps ensure you are succeeding every day! Every day if you do this will help you move closer and closer to your goals.
If you following these steps I am going to outline below you will move closer and closer to success. You will move closer to accomplishing the most you ever have in your life every single day. There will be days that you accomplish more than others but you won’t be staying in the level of mediocrity. You will be a winner! You will succeed! And you will be the best you that you can be.
