Reaching for a Balance

How do you look at things? Is your glass half-full or half-empty? Is pretty good, good enough, or do you keep looking for ways to make it better?

I admit I’m kind of a glass half-empty kind of guy. I know I should be more able to see the glass half-full and be positive, and I’m working on that. 

But I tend to see all the things I didn’t do, or couldn’t do, or did wrong, or can’t do yet… you get the idea. 


Persistence and Abe Lincoln.

Big changes don’t happen overnight. Well, the good kind anyway. We all know that sometimes bad things happen that can rock your world in an instant. But that’s a different article. 

Last week we looked at three pivotal qualities that lead one to success. 1) Commitment; 2) Attention to Detail; and 3) Staying Power. 

Today, I’m writing about persistence. This is kind of like staying power, but perhaps in a slightly different way. To me, staying power is critical, even when things are working. But persistence is what you need when things aren’t working!
