    Capture Excellent Ideas and Inspirations
    Throughout each day we all get inspiration and excellent ideas.  Keep a small notebook in your bag, along with a pen, and jot down any insights that will serve you positively.  The essence is to review these at the end of each day/week because a man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.

    Sunday Evening Planning
    Set aside every Sunday evening for yourself and be strongly disciplined with this habit.  Use this period to plan your week, visualize your encounters and wha tyou want to achieve, to read new material and books or to just simply relax.  This habit will serve as your anchor to keep focussed, motivated and effective throughout the coming week.

    Ask not what this world can give you but, rather, what you can give to this world
    Make service an important goal in your life.  It is a most fulfilling investment of time.  Remember, in the twilight of your life, when all is said and done, the quality of your life boils down to the quality of your contributions to others.  Leave a rich legacy for those around you to savour.  Sustained happiness does not come from what you get but from what you give.

    Make every one of your days a true masterpiece
    Remember the old saying:  "it's not what you think you are that holds you back but what you think you're not".  Period.

    Slow down your pace of life
    In this complex age we are running our lives at a frantic pace.  Focus on what is truly important and start taking activities that will slow you down.  Sit on the grass and watch the blue sky for half an hour.  At first, this will not be easy....but just try it.  Once you are used to a healthier pace of living, with regular periods dedicated to the simple pleasures of life, every other activity will become more efficient and enjoyable.

    And finally....."Leave other people better than you found them and look what happens to your life and career"
