I work with talented highly motivated people every day who are pursuing their dreams but are bogged down in the daily work of building a business. After spending a weekend at an executive coaching conference in Puerto Vallarta I gained some fresh perspective to see where I'd gotten bogged down in building mine.
When you love the work you do and the people you do it with, you matter.
When you are so gracious and generous and aware that you think of other people before yourself, you matter.
When you leave the world a better place than you found it, you matter.
When you continue to raise the bar on what you do and how you do it, you matter.
When you teach and forgive and teach more before you rush to judge and demean, you matter.
When you touch the people in your life through your actions (and your words), you matter.
