I enjoyed this post from Justin Sainton on the self-asked question of, “What advice would you give your younger self?” He says: margins. Creating margins – and avoiding having no margins, or negative margins – is the key to improving your business and personal life. Build margins by saying “no”, getting outside accountability, and creating a budget.
Creating that margin requires an objective look – often times, an outside look – at the areas of your life that are killing you. If you don’t belong to a mastermind, have a mentor, a counselor – some sort of objective perspective on your life that you’ve given permission to call you out – get it, now. The right people speaking timely truth into your life is transformative.
