am going home early.

With the holiday tomorrow, it’s a quiet day, not much happening.

Fifteen years ago, though, quiet or not, I’d be here at my desk all day.

Somehow, I got the idea that until I “became successful,” I had to always be working: Do the work when it’s there; chase the work when it isn’t.

Then somebody said: “How would you behave if you were already successful?”

That was a stop-in-your-tracks question.

The funny thing is, when you start making decisions that way, it starts to happen.

Go home. That’s what all the successful people are doing today.
