The Excelerated Life™ – Principles and Practices

The Excelerated Life™ – Principles and Practices

The principles and practices for living an Excelerated Life™ have developed and evolved over time.  I have grouped the principles under 3 Sections:  Foundation – Strengthen your standards; Excelerate – Move forward while increasing your ability to be outstanding, first-rate and exceptional; and Maintenance – Care for your most valuable asset.

The principles of the Excelerated Life™ are divided into 6 areas:  Clean Up Your Act, Positivity and Happiness, (Foundation), Goals and Goal Setting,  Action, (Excelerate), Self-Care, and Life Management (Maintenance). 

For each principle, I have identified 3 practices that enable you to make progress in the corresponding area.
