Which quote: “Do yourself a huge favor and choose only those action items that you can actually see yourself doing.  Its OK to start right where you are.” by Joan Friedlander

How this quote adjusted my thinking:

This quote had a very freeing effect on me.  So many times when I am not where I think I should be in achieving my goals I am quick to look at all the things I am not doing.  In my way of thinking, if I have two clients and I want two more then I must have to do some cold calling since I do not cold call now.  I do not like to cold call and it is not a skill I wish to acquire.  After reading this quote, I gave myself permission to let that notion go.  I learned to embrace the skills I have and implement the action items I am good at doing.
