You can design who you are going to BE, your context, when things don’t go your way… and even when things go well.\n\n\n\n
  • Let people be partners in the solution you design (we did it)\nAllow your idea to be a seed, let it unfold the way it wants to.\n\nJohn Couch Aikido\n\n\n\n\n

  • Put your ass on the line. Make promises. Take ownership, especially when you do NOT manage to deliver on those promises. Talk about doorface.\n\n\n\n\n
  • Everyone gets everything they ask for... be specific.\nBe willing to achieve your goals… and create bigger ones!\n\n\n\n
