    A SUMMARY OF WHAT I UNDERSTAND ABOUT C.E.N.T.S. (control, entry, need, time and scale)...I am still learning and growing...

    MINDSET 
    Drown Out the Noise, and Focus (First Things First) Maybe it took me a pandemic. This window of slowing down has crystalized a lot of things, and re-prioritized things. I have often preached to others the value of Steven Covey’s concept of putting First Things First. Prioritizing the things...
