Go ahead and be a little selfish

It’s OK not to jump when the world commands.


Sometimes we need to pause the madness and be a little selfish.

It won’t kill them (or the deal) if you take a moment to gather your wits and do a self check-in.

No . . . you don’t ALWAYS have to stop what you’re doing to answer the phone or email or knock at the door.

You don’t have to agree to attend meetings that you know will not be useful for you.

What we need around here is a little discipline.

We’ve gotta “Train” the space invaders in our lives within some well-defined boundaries.

24/7/365 access to you will end up killing your soul.

So . . . Everything that comes at you is an invitation.

By definition, “Yes” and “No” are both appropriate responses.

No need to apologize or explain.

Please take care of this for you, so you can serve others better.

We will not judge you just as you will not judge us.
