We’ve always believed that forming a strategy is impossible until you’re clear on what your values and principles are.  Without values and principles to guide you, making decisions can seem impossibly difficult.  Given how important setting values and principles is to decision making we asked folks we admire to tell us about the values or principles that matter most to them.

A good friend of mine, who has since passed, once told me, “Mike, if you are going to have to tell your story some day, you better make it a good one.” That idea has stuck with me for years. I think a good story has a great start, some great conflict, and the good guys winning in the end. The crowd should be rooting for them. If that’s not how people feel about you, you’re doing it wrong. Treat people well, enjoy the scenery and the moments, learn the lessons, and enjoy the journey. And live to tell about it all.

Diligence. Diligence is both being able to work hard and to do it consistently. There are many times when the work will become tedious. Times when the work will be overbearing.

No matter what the work makes you endure, there is growth. This principle is one key to success in something with variety, saturation, and many consistent obstacles such as art. In all aspects of the craft as well. Creating the art, and making connections with people. I have discovered that no matter how long you have been working on your skills, there is always something to learn and something to improve upon. Read more>>

We’ve all seen in life or in the movies about the “rat race”, right? Well, that is a race that I did not start though I worked for several decades in the executive world. I just decide it was not going to be a “race” and I’m sure not a “rat”. I took everything, “the sweet with the sour”, as a good friend Jack says, and learned from those experiences. Honesty is not being a saint, but knowing that you don’t have to be or do things that are not who you are. So, do I need to be worth $200 Billion to be successful? Yes! If you want to be worth that much, but if not, no because your success is what you feel you are worth. As I say, “I am who I am because of who I am not.” Read more>>
