BEST QUOTES







"The stress spiral is overwhelmed, overworked, overcommitted. It happens when you don't let your time get focused, where you never leverage your energy, and your priorities continually get hijacked.""Your energy waxes and wanes over the course of the day, and it is almost the same every day.""Do what your best at when you are at your best.""How do you say no? One thing is to have a really clear sense of your lane, what are you best at?""Deciding ahead of time what you will and won't do can really help.""When you are in a rapid change environment, what would have been a 9 last year, may not be a 9 this year, so don't make your decisions too far in advance.""You know who always absorbs the slack of all your bad decision making and saying yes too much and being overcommitted? Your family.""If you don't declare a finish line to this, your body will.""Time off won't heal you when the problem is how you spend your time on.""If you don't deal with your problems, they don't get better. They get worse."
