THE POSITIVE PERFORMANCE CHECKLIST

Many of you have heard me talk about my “big brother” Zig Ziglar, my mentor and a man who’s played a big role in my life.  One of his favorite things to say is “Check up from the neck up.” He has another which is, “When one finger is pointing to the problem, three times as many are pointing back at the solution.”  He means –WE ARE our own solution. These days are challenging, I know. There’s lots keeping people up at night – personally, professionally, and financially.  That’s why it’s more important than ever to look to ourselves and determine whether we are part of the problem or the solution. That’s why I believe now is a great time to revisit the 20-point checklist I’ve created to help you gauge your POSITIVE PERFORMANCE.  I hope it helps!
