If we believe that we are able to do something, we’ll do it. If we believe we cannot do something, we won’t do it.

It is usually endeavored to be reached in finite time by setting deadlines. Albeit goals, dreams and expectations are related concepts, there are important differences that will be discussed further on. As it often occurs with dreams, there are virtually no limits on the number of goals we … (Continue Reading)
When I have to hire someone for any position in my company, I always pay close attention to the below discussed 7 attributes, because I always strive to hire people with leadership traits (even when the job is not a key managerial position.)
