What I Like to talk About

Excellent Decisions are decisions made based on vision and values instead of external stress and pressure. 

  • People who make Excellent Decisions are by definition leaders. 
  • People who make Excellent Decisions THRIVE - they achieve at a very high level and are truly happy - in today's high stress, high pressure, and constanly changing world. 
  • Ancient Greek definition of happiness:  "The experience of joy while in pursuit of your potential".
