Always bring it back to the goal. (And when I say “it,” I mean your actions, words, habits, behaviors.) When you are not seeing the results you’d like to see, personally or professionally, take a step back to look at the big picture of your life or business. Is what you’re doing or saying bringing you closer to your goal or farther away from it? Be honest with yourself. Sometimes, you simply need to adjust your sails to head in the right direction again. Ultimately, you will be happier and more successful when you bring it back to the goal!
