  • Management was a “toothache,” now that we are remote, it’s become an “emergency root canal.”
  • How are you “being” – vs. what are you “doing?”
  • Your state of “being” drives what you “do.”
  • Time management vs. energy management – they are very different. Manage your energy more than your time.
  • 3 Buckets Leaders need to focus on: Financial Health, Physical Health and Mental Health.
