Following your rationality not your feelings.
Cultivate a strategic mindset. It’s never too late.
Tighten the deadline, raise the bar, lift the benchmark. Demand from yourself world class performance even if you are in a local league. And don’t forget to give the major league a call.
The simplest task turns into an excruciatingly tough challenge if you compress the deadline or increase the repetition significantly.
Assume leadership traits, even without positions.
It all starts with your awareness.
