3 lessons I imparted to 1 of the people I coach today:

a. make up a list of things u are doing, identify the 1s u are good at, stop doing everything else;

b. when u make a decision about anything, make sure your heart/head and gut are all in agreement about it;

c. realize that when you get to the top of the mountain, there is always another and each 1 is higher/tougher than the last.

My late father, Professor OJ Firestone, told me that if u stop doing stuff u are bad at, it’s like plugging the leaky bucket shown in the above sketch. Pretty soon, your bucket fills up with money, time and love… 

I’ve found that if u are not passionate about what you do (your heart isn’t really in something), if your analysis says this is not going to work (your head) and your gut is telling u STOP, then u should.

Lastly, any mentor or life coach will tell u, don’t get too big for your britches. There is always lots left to learn and a little humility goes a long way in life.
