Whatcha doing today? Most of us try to tackle too many priorities, and that is bad for the organization’s bottom line and your personal effectiveness.

As you plan your action for the day, do one thing that combines these two powerful, energizing factors:

Do what works. What aligns both with your organization’s top need and your greatest capability?

Do what you love. What work engages both passion and productivity? There is a magic that happens when you engage in joyful work.

Combining these two factors isn’t always possible, and it’s not easy. However, it is worth aspiring to, because it’s the secret sauce that produces both satisfaction and results.

This is the only today you have. Make the most of it.


Let’s make some secret sauce together.
