Say no more often and without feeling like I have to justify with a reason. Turn down a few opportunities that don’t make sense for me right now. I got ahead by saying saying yes to everything. Now it is holding me back.
Treat my time like it is my most valuable asset. Take back control of my time and disassociate with those that don’t respect it. Stop stealing time from myself.
Be more aware of my ego and how it is keeping me from learning new things because I think i already know them
Keep emotions out of my decision making. Anger and passion cloud my judgement. Get better at controlling my emotional response to events. There is a moment in between an event and my reaction that I need to get better at taking control over.
Specialize. Realize that I can’t be great at two things at the same time. Focus my professional energy in the areas that will produce the most value for me.
Avoid over valuing sunk costs. Time and money mostly. Switch gears when necessary.
Stop trying to control and preach to my family and friends. Try to learn from them instead. Listen more and talk less.
Get better at showing a genuine interest in other people. Stop thinking and talking about myself all the time. Learn what the people closest to me are afraid of. Learn what makes them tick. Learn what they are afraid of and what they are passionate about.
