Just because your idea is now generating revenue isn’t everlasting proof that you will always be right.
When others come to you with an unprompted idea or suggestion, stop what you are doing and listen with your eyes, ears, and heart.
Enthusiasm about a new business idea is not the same as pursuing it.
The right kind of focus is a lot like a laser – a concentrated beam of light. Shine this light only on areas of your business life that make sense.
What you want to have is the right kind of vision that allows you to swing at the pitch only when it really counts.
Make sure your file backup is in a different location than the original.
Generosity needs to come back to the workplace in a big way.
We all have the opportunity to change the world around us, one comb at a time.
Being generous with your time and ideas is not an attention drain.
