My average works day involves connecting my students and other business owners, giving direction to my staff, working on contents, taking some time to read and learn, teaching, and empowering.

Not getting distracted by all the information that are out there and keeping myself focused on finishing tasks and activities I have planned on completing for that day.
In terms of productivity, crossing things from my list when they are done. In life, my family, my students, and my devotion to serve others.

If a task takes less than 5 minutes do it immediately.

The best advice I have ever heard was "Failure is not the opposite of success, it is part of success".
By spending time with family at the end of the day and being outdoor connecting with nature.

When you are feeling overwhelmed doing something, go back to why you started. This always helps me stay on track
