Goodbye Zig Ziglar

Before the likes of Tony Robbins and other motivational speakers, there was Zig Ziglar. Most well known as an author and speaker, he has touched the lives of many individuals around the globe over the last 50 years.  Personally, I have seen him a couple times live on stage – and he was good.  Especially when he got low the the ground, even down on a knee, to make a point.

Zig Ziglar died after a battle with pneumonia late November 2012 at the age of 86.

For decades, Zig Ziglar motivated and inspired millions of people to be more successful at whatever they do for a living. Ziglar’s ideas about creating a sense of urgency are exemplified in his “Day Before Vacation” story. Watch him in action:

“According to research, a little over one hour a day is wasted in idle conversation, much of it gossip that has nothing to do with a job. An hour a day is five hours a week, that’s 250 hours a year, that’s 6 weeks of life totally gone to waste.” – Zig Ziglar

Bottom line?  Treat every day like it’s the day before your vacation and you will be pleasantly surprised with the results in your personal and professional lives. Learn more about personal and professional development from Zig Ziglar at
