    Very nice list. I think that 9, 14, 24, and 65 are especially important things to remember.

  2. Suzann says:

    What an excellent list. Every single item is so important. “Break large goals up into achievable smaller goals” is something I’ve been working on – it’s like magic. I’m getting huge projects done just from breaking them down into small steps. And I love “Help kids become self-confident.” So glad you thought of that.

  3. Rodney says:

    I know this sounds a bit contrarian, but do we actually need to have self-confidence. I used to try to improve my confidence but I found that when I just focused on doing things because they matter to me and trying to be the kind of person I can be proud of that I just did what I needed to do regardless of whether I felt confident or not. I wouldn’t say my confidence has improved but my life certainly has.
