The #PowerWeekend is over. Now is the time to figure out how to keep the enthusiasm, energy, and focus from this weekend and carry it forward.
I have so many topics to write about, but I do not want to lose track of them. I am going to list various quotes and ideas from my notebook in this post, so that I can refer to them in future posts when I expound upon the ideas that really resonated with me. I hope there is at least one idea in this post that resonates with you.
