“One of the hardest things for leaders today to do, is to figure out what they are ‘not’ going to do.
…After a while, success is as much about what you say ‘no’ to as anything else. This is your personal brand also.
…Then, what you are GOING to do takes on increased focus, gains mind, body and spirit traction, lives in credibility, and in time even benefits from the momentum you create through intelligent focus.
…After that, after you have intelligently decided what you are ‘for,’ all you then have to do is to just never, ever, ever give up.”
