Confidence is a Great Starting Point

During the last few weeks, I rode with my 18-year-old son as he practiced the drive to St. Mary’s University. We are delighted he decided to attend his studies here in San Antonio. However, the school is about 26 miles from our home, and he needs to drive on highways to get there.
So … yes … as parents, we are a bit nervous.

Decide What You Want to Take Off the Shelf Today

I recently had a phone conversation with a friend. After a few minutes of hearing me talk about the many personal and business tasks on my list, he provided advice he had learned many years ago.
It sounds like you are overwhelmed, and the fact is you can only do so much at one time. Therefore, my recommendation is that you decide what you wish to take off the shelf today. It’s true that you have some immediate deadlines, and they will take priority. However, you will feel much better and have more control if you make the decision regarding what to do and when to do it.”

No Human is Limited

While reading news of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, I came across the story of Eliud Kipchoge. In 2019, the Kenyan long-distance runner ran the marathon distance of 26.2 miles in 1:59:40, which remarkably broke the magical 2-hour barrier.
As is my custom when I hear unbelievable success stories, I did a little more research. Interestingly, Kipchoge was raised by a single mother, who was a teacher. Because he lived in a remote area in Kenya, he attended school by running the two miles each day.

The Success Program is Easy, but People are Complicated

I recently met with a retired businessman who I contact often for advice. It’s safe to refer to him as a mentor who has provided a ton of guidance for many years.

I would first like to share that seeking advice from others was not easy for me in my younger years. I used to think all the answers needed to come from me. I knew my career and business better than anyone, so it would be a waste of time to ask others for their ideas and direction.
