Here are some wise words, that I have been advising people to take on board for some time now. But I just received the latest Cheryl Richardson newsletter, & she says it better than I can, so here it is.
"Topic of the Week
I have a mission statement that reflects the guiding principals of my company. This statement reads: "Work Smart, Have Fun, No Drama." Although it was originally developed as a business tool, I've also adopted it for my personal life. Last week, however, I broke rule #3 - No Drama. "

I really like Cheryl Richardson and this newsletter piece was excellent. I especially liked the ending "There's an old saying that you can't have a war when one side doesn't show up. Be that side. Do what you have to do to address the situation and then walk away from the drama. Not only do you give yourself (and the problem) the greatest chance for a successful outcome, you protect your peace of mind - the most valuable gain of all."
I've been using her Life Makeover book, but I have to admit, I'm still falling behind, but that's ok too. No drama. :)
