(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Sometimes we don’t always do what we should. Then, sometimes bad things happen. Sometimes that’s okay.

Life is trade-offs. You can’t do everything you want to do; you don’t have the time. Most people try to do everything so that nothing bad will happen. In the process they miss having some big good things happen because they’re using most of their time on small things.

Do what you really want to do that will create the biggest outcomes you want. When you do, some other things will fall through the cracks. Some of them may be bad things.

The trick is to quit being bothered by having small bad things happen, if you’re creating big good things.


Coaching Point: What are some good big things you want? Are you willing to let some small bad things happen?
