Warmest Holiday Greetings and Hope-filled Wishes for a New 2010!

It's been a remarkable year for all of us! Let's all celebrate the fact that we have made it through one of the most tumultuous years than probably we who are still working, as a collective whole, have ever experienced. For that, CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!

Rather than reminisce here (I'll be sending out another letter soon), I want to give you this link to a video as a gift and a reminder that will inspire you to a better 2010.

The video was created by the great current personal development gurus - Tony Robbins - in honor of the passing from the previous generation's personal development guru, Jim Rohn. I also learned a great deal from Jim Rohn, who passed away earlier this month. His death marks another great transition for us to ponder this season. I hope you enjoy it. Only about 12 minutes. And well worth it! Click Here to Watch. It may take several minutes to load. Be Patient!

Coming Soon!: Starting in January 2010 Productive Learning Systems, and Go Live and Online with our New Virtual Training Programs. Details to follow. In the meantime - send us an email suggesting best times where you can attend without distractions from a web connected pc for 90 minutes per session.
