22 simple habits that separate high achievers from everyone else…

The text from me is:

Practice leadership.  Just as attorneys practice law, leaders need to practice leadership.  Great leaders influence others toward a better future.  Leadership requires public optimism.  Narcissism.  Confidence.  Practice, and more practice.  Every day I identify the top 8-10 people I need to influence.  They may be clients, colleagues, prospects, friends, loved ones.  Then I write their names on my list and practice leadership.  Some require a phone call, others need a direct meeting.  All on my daily target list need to know that they are important to me and my business.  When I practice leadership daily, then I stay focused on my objective of being a leading provider of outcome-based leadership development solutions.  You can practice leadership daily.
