Yippee! Welcome to the month of November! There is no better time to take stock of the year 2015! No better time to start putting our lives and affairs in order in preparation for the year 2016!
Have you checked out what worked for you? And what didn’t? Have you assessed your performance? In terms of productivity and self development? Hmmm. Time for stock taking! No matter what we discover in the course of our assessment, let’s remember that…THERE ARE NO FAILURES, ONLY FEEDBACK!
You may not have discovered what works for you but…you must definitely have discovered one or two things that didn’t! That’s your feedback right there! This month on #ListenUpNG, our guests are women and men (ladies first *wink*) who have certainly discovered what worked for them. And guess what? They are ready to share with us on #ListenUpNG!
