My mother often said to me that I was lucky.
She pointed to my lovely wife, our six healthy children, our beautiful home and our success in business as proof of just how lucky I am.
In the last few years of her life, I challenged her once in a while by saying I considered myself more “fortunate” than lucky.
Success can be defined as consistently achieving desired results over time. And it follows that success is more likely to come from orderly, productive and effective activities.
In the long-run, success depends on the balance between chaos and systems in your life. The more order, structure, discipline and routine in your life, and the more focused you are on your goals, the more likely you will be successful. Chaos, on the other hand, is the enemy of success!
Happy August Everyone!
For most people, summer is a time of vacations, road trips, lazy afternoons, barbecues, visiting family, and THIS summer, watching the Olympics. And that’s as it should be.
But it’s also a time that makes it easy to get off track with our goals and dreams. Of course, that can happen anytime. But with so much going in during the summer, it’s easy to not do the things that move us closer to our most important objectives.
