“Time is our most precious, valuable resource and yet we don’t learn how to manage time well.”


“Important people wake up at 4:30. Well, why? What is YOUR why for starting your day that early? Just because successful people do it, no, it’s not going to cut it.”


“We are 43% more likely to follow through with what we said we’d do if we write that goal down.  If you have an accountability partner, though, you’re 95% more likely to follow through on that goal.”
