See today for what it is: the present and the present is all the guarantee you get. Ask yourself, “Is what I am doing today going to help me achieve my goal?” If the answer is “yes,” then keep doing it. If the answer is “no,” then redirect your activities.
- Define the End Of The Day At the Beginning Of The Day
Spend a minimum of 15 magic minutes first thing each morning planning your day. The goal is to control your day and not let it control you. Work on what matters and don’t get off track.

Investing in self keeps you growing and contributing. As you become more valuable, you achieve a reputation as a professional and create a broader influence. Set aside some prime time for investing in yourself regularly.
Execution is the fundamental key to success and bridges the gap between plans and results. Be a doer. In doing, you gain momentum, and momentum is a game-changer and the most potent force in winning. Be productive; get the right things done. Don’t confuse effectiveness with effort. Focus on results, not activity.

Don’t be afraid to celebrate. Significant achievements call for immediate celebration. Celebrating immediately reinforces achievement and leads to further performance. Celebrate progress, not activity.
