My Aunt Char is full of wonderful ‘Char-isms,’ or great comments that really put a situation in perspective and bring you back to reality. Very recently she shared the Char-ism above, which was an incredibly ‘on-point’ reality check.
Professionally or personally, be sure to select the best yardsticks for ‘performance’ for you and what you consider to be success. Frequently identify and re-assess any yardsticks you do use and ensure they are still relevant.
