ThinkTQ.com

I found this website as I find all things interesting -- by poking around and following links on the internet. And while I'm not ready to wholeheartedly endorse the website, I thought I'd pass on something I've been reading every morning and every evening that I found through Think TQ:

Here are the 10 choices you must make each day, each hour, even each minute, to GUARANTEE that you are on the road to GREATNESS... rather than heading down the road to MEDIOCRITY:

  1. Choose to be ENERGETIC—instead of permitting yourself to become run-down and burned-out.

  2. Choose to be PASSIONATE—instead of permitting yourself to become aimless, apathetic and indifferent.

  3. Choose to be ENTHUSIASTIC—instead of permitting yourself to become half-hearted and discouraged.

  4. Choose to be SELF-DIRECTED—instead of permitting yourself to become directionless and uncertain.

  5. Choose to be PREPARED—instead of permitting yourself to become shortsighted and reactive.

  6. Choose to be FOCUSED—instead of permitting yourself to become scattered and impulsive.

  7. Choose to be SUPPORTIVE—instead of permitting yourself to become critical and judgmental.

  8. Choose to be SYSTEMATIC—instead of permitting yourself to become haphazard and disorganized.

  9. Choose to be TIMELY—instead of permitting yourself to become distracted and preoccupied.

  10. Choose to be PROACTIVE—instead of permitting yourself to become procrastinating and hesitant.
With the right tools, you can learn to make these clear choices consistently and automatically. No question, it comes down to identifying exactly what's holding you back from being Energetic, Passionate, Focused, etc.—and ELIMINATING the root-cause—by choosing to take smarter ACTIONS.

Ok, me here again. I think what I like the most out of what they write is the word "choose." It truly is my choice as to how I engage life, and how we all engage our lives. And that's a very very good thing, isn't it?

Leslie, I love that list!! We need to hang that up on the wall and memorize it. I have always thought, "it's all about choices" and this just shows us how true that is.

Thank you for posting that, and have a super week ;)
