To end off this piece, a few final thoughts on taking risks in life... RISK:

Seeing that I've taken one or two...or three or four in my time. And achieving any type of success always involves taking some form of calculated riskI loverepparttar quotation, 'Be bold and unseen forces come to your aid'. It certainly worked for us when we came to New Zealand with virtually nothing. Rememberrepparttar 124111 past is unimportant. Onlyrepparttar 124112 present andrepparttar 124113 future matter. Andrepparttar 124114 future belongs torepparttar 124115 calculated risk takers. I have to think so with my liferepparttar 124116 way it is, don't I? And more importantly, I need a great deal of FAITH...to keep me going day after day.

"The greatest risk in life is to risk NOTHING... The person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing, is nothing, and becomes nothing..."

- Norman Vincent Peale.

"Onlyrepparttar 124117 person who risks is truly free. A man's con- quest of himself dwarfsrepparttar 124118 conquest of Mount Everest". - N.V.Peale (again).

"Whatever you do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it". - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

To end off this chapter, a final thought from plain old "Joe Bloggs"... Whatever you want or desire in life, remember Hamlet's words written byrepparttar 124119 great English playwright, William Shakespeare:

"To thine own self be true".

Then you will be happy. Be happy.

Don't hog allrepparttar work. Delegate what you can as this encourages a sense of responsibility and a sense of teamwork in others. It frees up your time for more important activities. Handle each piece of paper only once. Rather than shuffling paper, make a decision to deal with it NOW (if important). destroy, or diarise for later action.

Userepparttar 124110 concept of time blocks to do similar tasks at one time...rather than when they arise, otherwise trivia will swamp what is important. Look at your body rhythms for which times suit you best. When do you work best (or when is your concentration at it's maximum)? Are you most alert inrepparttar 124111 morning, afternoon or evening? Plan your day by your energy cycle. You can schedulerepparttar 124112 most important or mentally demanding activities when you are at your peak. "Next time you say, "I'm wasting time" change that to say, "I'm wasting myself."
