Her recommendations

1. Stop. Think. Contemplate. Have quiet time: Give yourself time each morning, during the day, and at night to have quiet time for renewal and to prioritize what is important.
2. Know what you are saying. Be reasonable with your expectations. Be diligent with your time.
3. Execute what you have on your plan. First thing in the morning, know what you have to do upon your feet hitting the floor. What are your priorities for the day. What are your priorities for the next 30 days.
4. Stretch yourself every day. Do something different and stretch for personal and professional growth.
5. Assign a purpose to everything you do and evaluate it along the way. Is it serving a purpose? Is it leading you to your higher good?
6. Be financially sound. If you do not know what your financial goals are and how financially prepared you are for life’s unexpected and expected events, get the support you need to make your plan to be financially sound.
