"You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are." ―Fred Rogers
Thinking about this quote, I just needed to share this great article with you.
ASK YOURSELF: HOW WILL 2015 BE DIFFERENT, WHAT GOALS WITH DATES WILL YOU ACCOMPLISH?
This week, I am making lots of choices.
Choices about how I want to approach my work, next year.
Choices about how I want to show up in my relationships with my friends, my family and my true love.
Choices about what I need to subtract from my life and business -- so that I can do less and do it better.
Some of these choices are easy to make. Others are not.
Big or small, each choice will determine who I am, and who I become.
What are the choices that you need to make, as this year draws to a close?
While you ponder that rather-intense question... here are some new things to read & enjoy:
