    Doing the next right thing, Justice, Success, Time, Value

    Its the human condition that lessens the value of our time, our most valuable asset. Many people get caught up in the little things which keeps them from becoming successful. The philosophy I subscribe to is doing the next right thing not doing the next thing right. Looking beyond the small insignificant bumps in the road along the way and narrowing in on my ultimate goal and staying focused on that next right thing has made me more effective at work and at home with my family. When emotions run high and someone is seeking justice for an action they feel is 'unjust' they get caught up in doing the next thing right and they forget what they're striving for. In doing so, individuals seeking justice waste their most valuable resource, time and instead squander their time on distractions that keep them from being successful.

    What has distracted you today? Where are you wasting your time? Are you seeking justice from an alleged wrong you feel is unfair? If you were to invest all the time you've 'wasted' seeking to correct an 'unfair' action  you'd be focus on the next right thing.  Instead of righting all the wrongs in your life, focus on the next right thing, invest your ultimate value in your success.

  • There are no places to get to, only places to go.

    Accountability, Change, Places to Go, Success

    Only when you become accountable for your decisions and actions, do things start working out for you. The 'whoa is me' let me get through today and get to tomorrow is out. Focus on yourself and what you can do to change. You can only change yourself so only focus your time and effort on what you have the power to change. When the pain of staying the same becomes too great the pain of changing becomes an option. Changing is never easy and it can hurt. Step up to your accountability and take the leap to make the changes necessary to make your success viable. If you want to succeed, step up to your accountability. In doing so, reach for a goal that is uncommon. Until your friends call you crazy you aren't reaching high enough. You can only be as successful as your mind allows you to be. If your mind can think it, the rest will follow. Your best thinking got you here. If someone says your idea is impossible, you have a great idea and a great place to go!
