The ONE THING for today

Backseat drivers…

Your passions are flighty friends.  At any given moment, what you feel can change, misinform you and betray you. 

Let sound judgement be your co-pilot and let your passions be backseat drivers.  When they are right, listen to them; when they are wrong, ignore them.

Two good “sound judgement” questions to start your day with are:

(1) What absolutely has to be done today?

(2) What does a win look like for this day? 

The ONE THING for today: What has to be done, has to be done no matter how you feel, and a good solid win counts even on a bad day.  String together a few wins and the emotions have a tendency to turn positive, no matter how tough the going is.
