Plan for the Blog

My last post was about having a plan so here is the plan for this blog for 2017—

I want to focus my energy on this blog and things related to it. To do that I am consolidating my other site content here so you can find it all in one place. My site called www.books2wealth.com will be phased out this year. To accomplish that I will be moving its content to this blog. That will take some time as I will be moving the content over here page by page. In a few months that transfer will be complete and I will close the books2wealth site and create a redirect so that when people go looking for books2wealth they will be directed here.

My aim is to make finding things easier for you. No more moving from one site to another. You will be able to find it all here: my interviews with expert authors, articles, and book reviews. All in one place. It will also be easier and cleaner for me to maintain one site.

My second goal is to update my books as needed and make them all available both on Kindle and in print. I stared that process last year and should have it done in the first half of this year.

Additionally I will continue adding high quality content here with blog entries at least twice a week.

My third goal is to create some higher value courses for you. I already have the Effective Time Management Lessons available but will also be working on courses to delve deeper into success, personal development and related areas. Those will take longer to complete and should be launched later this year.

I would love to hear from you about how I can do any and all of this in ways that serve you better, so contact me either by commenting on this post or at the contact link below if you wish it to be private.

I look forward to another year of exploring with you the newest and latest there is to learn about how we can achieve more and succeed.

Less is More

Reel in the moonSometimes less is more. That is the plan here as I will not be posting here on Fridays anymore, at least not often. For some time I have posted here three times a week, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For a long time I even posted specific types of articles on set days. It is now time for a change.

You will continue to find posts here every Monday and Wednesday. Some of those posts will be longer and in greater depth than has been typical. Once in a while, when the fancy strikes me, I will post on another day as well but mostly Mondays and Wednesdays.

There are two reasons for this. I want to improve the quality of posts, spending a bit more time on them requires doing less of them. Less is more. I also will be posting more often on my other blog: Books2Wealth.

On Fridays then, please visit my other blog to see a Friday post on creating wealth which is the emphasis there, and the rest of the week you will find the greater variety of posts here on personal development, leadership, time management, etc.

If you would like to read an excellent book review or article on Fridays please consider signing up for my newsletter in the sign up box at right, that is if you have not done so already. The newsletter focuses on a single subject each week: wealth building, personal development and time management.

I hope you continue to enjoy and benefit from posts here. If you would like to see more or less of anything or have other questions or comments please let me know – just use the Contact Us form on this blog to leave a comment. Or just comment to this post.

Thank you for your reading and returning.

Quality over Quantity

I’ve decided to reduce the number of posts here on the blog from three per week to two. Now and then I may add a third, but generally I will post two. I think that two quality posts is better than three of lesser quality. I hope my readers will agree. My posting schedule will be Mondays and Fridays most of the time.

See you on Monday with a great book review.

Wishing you well,

What is the vision here?

Vision

This is one of those times in life when I am reassessing many parts of my life. I am leaving some things behind and treading down new paths. It is a healthy thing to do now and then. Our world changes constantly and we need to change now and then to maintain relevance.

The big change I’ve made in my on line “platform” is the creation of this new/old blog and a refinement of my vision for what I am doing here to serve others.

I say new/old blog because this blog, DanielRMurphy.com, contains all the posts from the old blog (ctwblog.com) and it is where all the new posts will appear.

It is more than that however. It is a decision to renew and refine the vision for what this platform is meant to accomplish. When I launched the website (www.books2wealth.com) and the old blog in 2008 it was directed toward wealth creation. I will admit that was intentional to attract readers. Most people are interested in increasing their wealth. I discovered however that you cannot address the creation of wealth in a vacuum. True wealth is about more than bank accounts and money. It is about living a quality life; maintain balance, becoming more effective and continuous learning and adaptation to a changing world.

That is the vision here – Educating people for building wealth, adapting to a changing future and personal development. You cannot build wealth unless you can adapt to change. You cannot improve your life unless you develop yourself – improve your effectiveness. It is all interrelated.

The focus here will continue to be the creation of true wealth (which is more than money), time management, leadership skills, personal development and time management. In a sense I am breaking the rules here. Most of the internet gurus who advise us on how to be effective on line tell us to identify a narrow niche and master it. I do not disagree with that so much as I find that my niche – becoming more successful and effective – requires attention to more than one thing. I hope that you the reader will agree and will benefit from that more complex vision of what true success, true wealth and true adaptation can bring us.

I have spent most of my life in efforts to improve myself and my effectiveness and I will continue to do so until I draw that last breath. I have not arrived. I am not done. I suggest that no one is. It is a life long journey. I sincerely hope you will join me in that journey and I hope that what I provide on this blog and on my website will help you do just that.

This blog is dedicated to us – all of us – progressing through life, becoming more than we are and seeking knowledge and insight along the way.

What do you think?

Welcome to the New Blog!

Greetings and welcome to my new blog. How did I get over 500 posts on a new blog you might ask? Well, since 2008 I have written a blog called Creating True Wealth. This week I migrated those 546 posts over to this new blog. Voila – my new blog is six years old.

Why the new blog title?

My goal is to help people in several areas of personal development including Leadership, Personal Development, Time Management, Wealth Building and Success in general. The CTW blog did all those things but there was a disconnect between the name and all I have to offer. So that is why I changed it. I want as much flexibility in building my brand and my service to you.

Posts will resume this week on a regular basis. Come back and see all there will be to learn. You will also see additional pages with additional information added to the blog regularly.

My goal is to help you succeed in an ever changing world. Come and visit often, and better yet subscribe – you wont be disappointed.

Wishing you well,
