Best self. Empowerment is up to you. It cannot be granted it must be self-actualized.
The main thing. Keeping the main thing the main thing is the main thing!
Have a written plan. Software, templates, workbooks, courses, pad & pen… It’s only a plan when you write it down.
Know what to do. If there is not a policy, process or standard doesn’t mean there isn’t a right way to do things. Think, communicate and collaborate; then act.
Figures do not lie. Estimates & feelings are imprecise yardsticks. Prove it, then it’s a thing.
There is always a way. It is never more of what you are doing. Advance with though, express ideas, develop mentors and be better tomorrow.
Work, play & fight fair. If we don’t agree, consent to respect, consider, and have dealings with integrity.
No horseplay! Professionals don’t do it at work. Parameters are wide to meet customer demands. Policies exist and are the rules & standards of business conduct.
It’s already tomorrow. Honor the past, learn from it and choose today’s news.
Focus on the IMPORTANT, manage the URGENT. Expect upsets in business. Don’t spend excessive time putting out fires. Create enough opportunity so bumps in the road do not escalate into poor decision making. Emergencies will be properly prioritized.
Never betray loyalty unless integrity is at stake. Be honorable, humble and contrite.
Leave the campground in better shape than you found it. Have a great legacy, it’s a real measure of what you build.
