    I like both of those!

    Michelle – that’s a good one to keep in mind, especially for those who feel like they’re stuck in a rut. The key is to ask, what could I have done better to get me moving in the right direction? Reviewing what went wrong can help us to move forward.

    Thanks!

    I have heard this one quite a few times, and I think I try to live by it.

    Regardless of what job I’m in, I try to find something I like about it. If that’s hard to do, I try to mold my role into something that allows me to grow and be happy.

    A great book to read is Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers.  He says that it takes roughly ten thousand hours of practice to achieve mastery in a field.  No matter what level you are on you can always continue to learn and evolve in your field.

    Good Morning,

    I recently watched the Documentary series, The Defiant Ones on HBO.  It tells the story and friendship between music legend Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre (Andre Young).  Although they were from different worlds, together they transformed contemporary culture in the process.   One part that stuck with me is when Jimmy Iovine was being interviewed he compared your vision or goals to a racetrack horse who has on a “blinker hood”.  This prevents the horse from looking back or even to the side to not be distracted by his fellow race horses.  This was such a great metaphor as we need to make sure we focus our attention straight ahead and not on anything else.

    Focus Ahead
