One of our worst traits can be perfectionism. Stymied by our desire to make sure that everything is perfect before doing something, the we are in danger of never moving forward because we don’t ACT.
I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time online. In addition to time spent on my laptop and desktop, mobile apps, and Instagram, my facebook timeline, twitterfeeds and emails stream directly to my smartphone. I literally spend my entire day with thousands of your voices echoing in my stream of consciousness all day long.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last week or so, you’ve probably seen “Villanova Piccolo Girl,” a heartbroken Villanova basketball fan who persevered with her bandmates even though she was overcome with emotion.

If you can stay focused on your unique contribution, and “why” you’re doing it, you’ll always come out ahead, and you won’t let your bandmates down. It’s ok to cry Read More…
