Important relationships operate best as a well cultivated garden, unless you tend to them on a regular basis, weeds will grow
Spend the most time with people who make you feel good about yourself and life in general
Don’t get sucked into the vortex of hyper-activity
Build your life around what is important to you (and the people you care about)
You are an ambassador for your organization to the rest of the world – never forget this
Understand that as long as there is someone else in the office, you have an audience
You must be consistently clear on what success looks like and how to get there, otherwise confusion will emerge
Think like an orchestra conductor – get all the different pieces working together in harmony
If the problem can be solved by someone else, let them do it
Always strive to operate at your “highest and best use” to the organization
