“I learned one of my greatest life lessons—if you don’t know who you are, you will never be content with what you can do…

I choose my work based on what I have defined as my purpose and say “no” to everything else. When I am buried under a to-do list, I prioritize and let some things go with no guilt. My exercise and fun time can’t be compromised. These are the good days.

When your need to be regarded as the star keeps you from setting stringent boundaries, you give yourself away too easily. In the end, you burn yourself out or hold resentment for the people who took you up on your offers.
