I enjoyed watching this video because of how personable Mr. Thompson was. A few of my take-aways…
Work to live. Don’t live to work.
Set limits for yourself. Don’t make your work life your whole life, no matter how exciting it might be. Nobody can do that and sustain that lifestyle forever.
Business is fun. Make it fun. Be confident in yourself. Business is not life, it’s just a part of it. Our families, our relationships and our faith are what really matter. Those should be our priorities and the limits we set for ourselves should reflect those things as our priorities.
“It’s not about how smart you are…”
It’s about your ability to push through. Always listen to the Spirit. He can and will help you gain the confidence you need to push through the hard times. Do the right thing. It will pay in the end.
“It’s all about the people you work with.”
Always work WITH people. They may work for you, but if you treat them like they work with you, you’ll have happier employees. Happier employees help create successful companies.
