I wanted to enroll in a NLP Practitioner training, but I was confused by the amount of marketing information around NLP centers today.

Here I summarize a couple of questions that you should ask before you pay for the training:

- Who is the trainer? Which credentials does he have? How many years has he been training?
- How many hours does the training last? How is the training organized? Is it all theory? Are there practice sessions?
- What type of certificates does the center provide? Are they recognized by international NLP bodies?
- What type of training material do they provide? Is it paperback? PowerPoint presentations? or simply lectures?

for more questions and insights, check this link, by Topher Morrison.

bossDo you often feel you need the validation of your boss in order to feel happy? Do you often need him/her to tell you "nice job!" or "this is good work!" to feel satisfied? What if you get off your desk and get home in time, do you feel somewhat guilty?
If you're at that point, then you probably have in your mind somethings that says "your boss should not be angry with you or your day will be a mess".

When asked "what should you do with your boss?", they respond that you should make his priorities you priorities, that you should help him reach his goals...But what if your boss does not value your personal time after 5pm? What if he considers your job undone, no matter how serious you work during the day?

I often times fall in this trap too. I found an interesting approach made by Aaron McHugh.

I bookmarked his website so that I can come to it later and read it. Basically, Aaron shows simple ways to re-think your beliefs and truths, about your boss and your work in general..

My best time to work out

I run a relatively busy schedule, between health, family, job and career. When I work out in the evening, my spouse gets upset that I don't spend time with her and the baby. When I work out on weekends, I get interrupted and my spouse asks me to buy her some items or go shopping. When my mom sees me working out, she gets upset too because she thinks that physical workout tires me :)

I must no stop exercising just to please others, at the price of losing my health and deteriorating my psychology.

So I had to rethink my workout time. And I thought "what's the best time for workout, while having the biggest amount of energy and not getting caught?"

P90X best time to work out

Yep. While most people are getting up of bed or doing their stuff, I would be warming up for my P90X session :) and believe me, it has a great feeling after each morning session!

So if you're following a workout program, or if you're doing some kind of physical exercise, what is your best time to do it?
