Make your life the best it can be. Write down your goals. Get to work. Don’t procrastinate.
There is an old proverb that says that those who want to build a house count the cost first. That’s part of what making goals does for us. It helps us design the plan.

Get balanced and stay balanced.
“…, evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses and just concentrate on making yourself the best you can be.” — Brad Schoenfeld, Look Great Sleeveless
When we are working on making OURSELVES the best we can be, then we are not comparing ourselves with others. We all have the potential and ability to shine within our own limitations, in our home businesses, with our teams, in our families and among our friends. In not comparing ourselves, it also helps us to appreciate the best in others.
“We often use generalities when we speak. Although our statements are clear to us, listeners may interpret something quite different. If you want to make an important point, take the time to say precisely what you mean.” … Asking “What are you angry about?”, instead of, “Are you angry with me?”, … “implies that you have already decided how your partner feels.” — 20 Communication Tips for Couples
You know what I’m going to say — this applies in business and on our teams as well as in our families. Let’s be clear when we are speaking. The results are so much better.
Every new day brings new possibilities and opportunities for something new. Don’t let today go by without taking advantage of one of them. Stretch your limits a little today. It’s a great way to cope with stress. #stretchyourlimits
What does this have to do with business? We find that people complain (team mates, work mates) about what they aren’t doing themselves, and fail to communicate their wants and needs. Before we complain, lets check ourselves first. Secondly, lets communicate clearly what we want and what we need from each other, and talk to the right people to get what we need.
