The fear of failure, like all fears, paralyzes behavior, clouds thinking, and causes a person to feel like the proverbial deer in headlights.

Your values should dictate your decisions and behavior, not your circumstances or fleeting thoughts. Being a reliable person not only means doing what you say, it means doing what is right, regardless of what you have committed to.

Where do you want to invest your precious resources? Although important tasks are your top priorities, they will rarely appear urgent. Don’t be fooled into thinking that whatever seems urgent is worth taking your mind off your most important priority.
