I get by with a little help from my friends
I really liked the article and your post. Good practical advice. If I can I would like to add one more tip and that is to have friends, mentors, advisors to help you make sure you stay on track. I don't know about you but even with all of the tips and systems I can find myself veering off track when things really get busy.
Kind of like the frog in the boiling pot....we don't know we aren't applying the practical tips until we aren't..... if that makes sense. Sometimes it takes outsiders (that want us to succeed) to provide us perspective, challenge us to see the things we can't see and hold us accountable.
