Welcome to my homepage. I am looking forward to a fantastic year. Let's get in the habit of being successful. Here are some tips.
  • Be Proactive   Take responsibility for your life!  Do what it takes to reach your goals.  Don’t be a victim; realize that there are consequences for your actions and accept responsibility.
  • Begin with the End in Mind.  Define your mission and your goals in life.  Plan for the future and work towards your goals in small, specific steps.
  • Put First Things First    Prioritize, and do the most important things first.  Don’t be such a lazy bum!  Know what needs to be done, and do it!  Know the difference between what is important, and what is not.
  • Think Win-Win    Have an everyone-can-win attitude.  There is enough success for everybody, and we all do better when we help each other.  Help others succeed, and take joy in their success.
  • Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood   Listen to people sincerely.  Understand their point of view before you start spouting yours.
  • Synergize    Work together to achieve more.  Be open to new ideas; welcome the help of others.  Be a team player, and help others as you help yourself.
  • Sharpen the Saw   Renew yourself on a regular basis.  Exercise, reflect, renew yourself mentally,  physically and emotionally.
