Thoughts for Tuesday (on Wednesday), Guest Post: Suzanne Bates


Thoughts for Tuesday

As we approach the middle of Q1, I challenge you to ask yourself these questions:

  • Does my calendar each day reflect my personal and professional priorities for this quarter?
  • If not, what steps am I willing to take to prioritize what is important?
  • What single “big rock” would it feel great to have accomplished this quarter, if I can choose just one?
  • What beliefs need to change so that I can get out of my own way?
  • How might I take care of body, mind and spirit, so I have the energy to succeed?

“Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answers.”

-William S. Burroughs, American writer
