3 Things to Never Be in Business (or in Life)

When we go about life without thought, intent, or care, it will affect our quality of life. For this purpose, I am referring to our will and desire to live well. Rather than proceed in life with wavering values, uncertainty, or less-than-great quality, let’s live more ambitious and passionate.

Here are three things I believe we should never be in business or in life:

NEVER BE ABSENT

Don’t allow circumstances or your emotions get the best of you. Yes, that’s easier said than done. Just look back on the moments you missed out on or maybe the harm that was caused from not being present in the moment. A lot can go wrong, unforgotten, or passed up on when we aren’t present.

NEVER BE WITHOUT INTENTION

Live with intention. Commit to walk into every room, speak to every person, write every email, and take on every task with the intention of doing it well. By committing your mind to act and think with the intention of doing your best and being your best, you will automatically radiate that to others. Be intentional with your relationships, in the topics you discuss, how you spend your time, and where you place your values.

NEVER BE WITHOUT PERSONAL VALUES

Know what you stand for. Know the type of person you want to be and do all you can in your professional and personal life to exemplify that. There is nothing more inspiring and honorable than someone who is driven by their values and stands by them. Which is why my parents always taught me to protect my character, keep my word, and help those around me (among other things). Where you place your values is where you put your time and efforts. Choose wisely.
