The Pareto Principle
20% of your priorities will give you 80% of your production,
You spend your time, energy, money, and personnel on the top 20 % of your priorities.
"Management is doing things right;
Leadership is doing the right things." -~Peter F. Drucker
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
~ Winston Churchill
1. Evaluate what is important in your life and what you would like to see improved.
2. Write your goals down. When you write them down, you can look at them every day and remind yourself of what you are trying to accomplish.
3. Make goals realistic.
4. Make goals timely. This will push you to do your best to reach them.
5. Stick with it! We oftentimes lose interest or motivation when working towards a goal. It is important to remember that long-term goals are not achieved overnight.

“Effective leaders motivate people,
Not by the answers they give,
But rather by the questions they ask.”
