18. Make time for yourself to relax; because this recharges repparttar batteries.

19. Delegate for success. Ask yourselfrepparttar 101946 question: Is this only something I can do? If not, to whom canrepparttar 101947 work be appropriately assigned? Is this person prepared now, or does he/she need further instruction to completerepparttar 101948 task efficiently?

Finally (and most importantly),

25. Enjoyrepparttar 101956 journey down "the river of life" and BE HAPPY.
