Over the Christmas holiday, I heard people talk about how hard they work. They were excited the holidays had arrived so they could take a much needed break. Good for them! For me, the holidays were an extension of my entire year. My recipe of less work, simply working smarter, has given me some marked advantages in 2018. Namely, a healthy work/life balance.

Assessing my achievements in 2018, I’ve developed 5 summarizing tips you can use around the office, dealing with perspective buyers of your goods or services, communicating with a spouse or child, and even developing a spiritual connection to your Higher Power.

  1. Tenacious Preparation
  2. Strategic questioning
  3. Listen more than you talk
  4. Urgency
  5. Assertive follow-up

I implore you to use the skills in your everyday life. You will find tangible results quickly.
