Nugget 1

Life is a journey of self-improvement: every day, you strive to be better and do better.

What will you do today to be a little better than yesterday? One step at a time, that’s how you improve. However, it demands that you be intentional about your growth. Day after day, you seek to become a little better: a better spouse, employee, employee, citizen, parent, friend, etc. And it never ends; it’s a journey more than a destination.

Nugget 2

Procrastination is a thief. It steals your dreams.

When you’re tempted to procrastinate, remember that procrastination is after your goals, dreams, and contribution. If you let it, procrastination will rob you (and the world) of all the great work you could produce; it will keep you locked in the basement of mediocrity; it will usurp your potential and give nothing valuable in exchange. You must protect your life from the thief of procrastination. Organize your life so that you feel stimulated to take action on your goals and dreams.

Nugget 3

Whatever you’re doing, focus on that.

Wherever you go, be present; life is lives in the “now.” Be focused on whatever you’re doing. Focus requires mental discipline. You must refuse to follow mental rabbit trails. Great work demands sharp focus. Make every effort to resist the appeals of distractions; concentrate your mind on the work or activity at hand. You get less done by being scattered.

Nugget 4

Don’t be stingy with your knowledge. Share what you know.

As you journey through life, you glean wisdom from your experiences and others. There are people around you who can benefit from what you know. Someone is behind you, traveling on a path you’ve already traveled, and your guidance can expedite their journey. Don’t hold back what you know.

Nugget 5

In life, there are many opportunities but not all of them are right for you.

There are more opportunities than you can seize, just as there is more food than you can eat. You don’t need to chase all opportunities that come your way; you must choose the right ones. When presented with opportunities, ensure that they align with your vision (i.e., your direction in life) and with your values (i.e., what you stand for). Any opportunity that sidetracks you or requires that you compromise your integrity isn’t beneficial, and you should pass it.

Nugget 6

Don’t envy other people’s abilities; use your own.

Part of your life journey is discovering your talents and abilities, develop them, and deploy them to add value to the lives of others. Envying other people’s abilities doesn’t serve you, nor does it serve others. Appreciate and celebrate what you others have to offer, and focus on making your best contribution with your gifts and skills.

Nugget 7

Generosity isn’t a function of your bank account; it’s a function of your heart.

The generous soul never has too little that he or she can share with someone else. Generosity depends more on your mindset than on your possessions. You have much to offer and share with others, provided that you have the desire to do so. Whether you give of your material goods, time, talents, wisdom, giving is fulfilling.
