Reflecting on 2018

Lessons learned and re-learned

  • I alone am responsible for every outcome— except success; that is a gift.
  • Focus all energies on creating/ adding value— not success.
  • Never blame, criticize, condemn, or complain— everything is how it should be. 
  • Embrace every circumstance, good or bad— Resistance is slavery
  • If I desire change, be the change— do not depend on others to do so. Do not wait for permission
  • Pay attention to pain points and adversity— do not avoid, ignore, repress. Pain is the teacher. The obstacle is the way.
  • The more you give, the more you grow— the more you sow, the more you reap.
  • Invest in others/be helpful— you are the company you keep. Strengthen your company.
  • Ego is the enemy— no man is an island.
  • Use evidence to justify action— track and measure activity to correlate and ensure optimal outcomes.
  • Leverage and learn technology to optimize activity and outcomes— systems yield power laws.
  • Repetition gets results— small steps repeated wins the marathon; you eat the elephant one bite at a time.
  • Practice stillness, observe the present moment— truth is revealed through reflection. Do not seek answers; let answers arrive.
