If you think there is a quick fix that can be used to turn things around and get out of a predicament, sorry, there isn’t. It is easy to believe that one critical event or a big break can change everything. Many of us were given a big break or an opportunity. Only to see it fade away.

Using the right fundamentals and practicing them daily is where you must focus your time and attention. There is profound power in practicing the fundamentals of success. Without them, the details are useless. With them, daily continuous improvement will add up to something significant for your business or career.
