What I Learned In 2011

  1. That development is solely my responsibility. No one is going to invest in my success more than I will. Which means that personal development needs to be built into my monthly budget and the payoff is exponential.
  2. Small consistent steps are better than big ones. It is a simple, and often a forgoten phrase that slow and steady wins the race.
  3. That in order to succeed I need to get out of my own way. This is a hard principle to grasp but we let our own thoughts betray what we can ultimately accomplish.
  4. Comfort is the cousin to complacency and stagnation.
  5. Jobs are not honorable or dishonorable but the people who do them are.
  6. I need to talk less and listen more.
  7. God’s word is to be applied to my life in every way.
  8. Failure is only bad if you quit something because of it. Failure is awesome as long as you learn from it and don’t let it defeat you.
  9. What you feed your mind is as important, or more important as what you feed your body.
  10. That I am grateful for the new people I have gotten to know by writing this blog.
