To the future!

Live out of your imagination, not your history.

Priorities and a fire burning within

You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasently, smilingly, nonapelogetically – to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside.

Character

The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.

Listen!

Most people do not listen with the intend to understand;

they listen with the intent to reply.

Stephen Covey

We all know the situtation: You listen to someone, just go “blabla, yes yes, I’m listening” and in your head you are preparing what you want to say and how you want to say it.

That is bad!

Don’t do it!

Instead try to really listen, try to really understand! That is why many people say that noone ever listens. Because listening is an active thing to do, not something passive.
