“Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life influencing another.” ~John C.R Is For Rolodex
“Rolodex” may be a dated word but regardless if you use it or some contact database, it is important to use it correctly. How often do you comb through it and reach out to people you haven’t spoken to in a while? Do you ever weed people out?Q Is For Quiet
How often do you get the opportunity to be still and have quiet time? A few years ago, I was walking on the beach early in the morning in Connecticut and I met a man who told me he needed seven minutes of silence a day. I gave this some consideration as I continued my walk and thought how much more productive I would be, and more importantly how much more efficient people would be in the workplace, if we all allowed ourselves seven minutes of silence each day.Begin Healing Your Inner Self And Gain Self-Control Through A Positive State of Mind

It is human nature to want to succeed in all aspects of our lives. This suggests that we should be interested in all advices, coaching, mentoring, and any other solutions that are offered to us to improve ourselves. Unfortunately this does not seem to be the case. I am often confused by the reluctance of many people to invest energy and effort toward achieving what is naturally human desire, namely success. I mean lasting success, not quick fixes that are achieved by cutting the corners. And I expect people, once achieving their goals, that they go all out to reward themselves, either with holidays, dinner, movie, etc. This is what we call relationship between hard work, effort, and rewards. I have identified the following components of work ethic as crucial for success: consistency, repetition, staying power, and hard work. I want to share my perspective and personal experience in this regard. Of course, success is by my own definition about achieving or exceeding that which one has set themselves to achieve.
