Once a week I create a list related to “advancing the ball.” I want to make sure that I do more than just MANAGE my business. I want to always have a list of activities and relationships that will help me GROW my business.
Taking a proactive approach (versus reactive) towards your work will help you bring focus to the projects that will make the biggest difference.

WHAT really matters today?
WHO really matters today?
Write it down. Breathe.
