Action Principles 

Pick one to do this week

  1. Create a life roadmap. Sit down and sketch out the highlights from your life. Explore the lessons you’ve learned along the way, and plan out where you want to go next. ACTION: Schedule a date in your calendar to design your life roadmap.
  2. Mentorship. There’s significant value in having or being a mentor. Whether you’re being helped, or you’re helping someone else, the relationship created can be life-changing. ACTION: Ask someone you admire in your industry if they’ll be your mentor. If you’re already at a high level, consider being a mentor instead.
  3. Adopt an optimistic mindset. Instead of viewing everything as a problem, adjust your mindset and look at them as opportunities. ACTION: If you’re facing a challenging issue right now, ask yourself, “What if this is an opportunity to make something better?”
