Whether you’re ready to punch someone in the kisser or jump up and down with joy—you'll never be here again, in this moment with these thoughts.

Take this in, the excitement and the misery and be intentional about what you do next.
Thinking that you only have one chance increases your anxiety and might actually increase your chance of blowing it. You get to try and try again and again, that's how success is achieved.

The nicer it gets outside the harder it is to focus on work. Summertime mesmerizes us to soak up its rays, lounge on patios and adopt a 24/7 vacation mindset. Figuring out how to blend work with play is the key to making the most of your not-so-lazy days of summer.

You've got to show 'em what you've got. There's no sense in hiding your contribution to the world. In order for everyone to benefit from your unique abilities, you have to step out and allow yourself to be seen.
