Leadership Tools: Reconcile and Align what we can control. Balancing Thinking, Feeling, Talking, and Doing.

Doing things consistently over time is what creates results. Consistent results over time leads to compensation. If we are unhappy with our results, then we have to look at what we are doing to start troubleshooting.  

Our maximum success comes when we are working at our highest and best use most of the time. Our maximum joy comes when we are doing what we love most of the time. This is another level of necessary alignment.  

We all have more control over this alignment than we believe.  

Take inventory of your life, both personally and professionally. Look at your skills, loves, relationships, actions, and results. Take the time to write them down to help you organize and prioritize your thoughts.  

Share your thoughts with your family, peers, management, team, coaches, and mentors to get insight so you can continue building true wealth.
