Four Boundaries Worth Setting Right Now

private-20115_1280When it comes to list making and my general time management and organization I like rules.

I like things to be clear cut– black and white.

Rules save me time, because I’m not sitting there wondering whether to take the call, go to the meeting or have another glass of wine.

I don’t believe confidence is something that we either have or we don’t. It’s more of a work in progress.

It can also be more cost-effective as the nose job cost in thailand is much lower than in the US.
