I’m not asking if you’re pulling in the money. Busy good people can do that. I’m asking if you can relax while you do what you do because you’ve figured out how to do it strategically.

I’m living up to my talents, but not to my potential. Liz likened the success of any business to the success of any garden; they need planning, attention and care. Well, she said it a little differently, but that was the gist. Today, I started planning my business garden with a simple first step: planning. Before I sleep tonight, I’ll have a good idea of what each post will be for the rest of the week. Along the same lines, I was reading something Steve Pavlina,Steve Pavlina.com had written and found this very helpful list on his homepage. I stole it to share with you.
