Don't let others hijack your success

Dear Reader,

Tip of the week:  Goals are not your “to-do” list.  Goals are the activities that will propel you and your company to success. Don’t let other people divert you from accomplishing your goals. If you spend your day answering emails, you’re helping someone else meet their goals. Instead, clearly identify the one task that you’ll do today that will make a difference to you and your company.
