Focus on What Matters

You can’t be a good project manager if you are constantly distracted by negative thoughts and negative people. Choose today to get back to some of the basics of what it means to be centered. A few lessons I have learned are listed below:

Surround yourself with positive people

Smile more and whine less

Believe that most of the time others are doing their best

Get rid of negative thoughts

Be happy with what you have, but don’t accept less than what you deserve

Be true to yourself and others

Be trustworthy

Be a good friend

See failure as a blessing because you can learn from the experience

Be positive, and an inspiration to others

Be grateful for what you have because it may be gone tomorrow

I think you are right. If I can execute a few of these I can get more done and be a better person. May need a little help with the negative thoughts. Wish Obama would end this recession.
