I loved this article. The concepts can be applied to more than just entrepreneurs; most people could apply the practices in their lives, regardless of their roles in life. The body is an amazing thing! Balance, flexibility, live in the present, etc.

1. Once you have identified a need, DO SOMETHING immediately.
2. Be the first to admit you suck at something, then work your ass off to fix it. (Your goal is to not suck twice.)
3. Be proud of your accomplishments, but not cocky.

Taking a Hiatus
I am taking hiatus from the Tour Outsider blog; am not sure when I will be coming back and posting on a regular basis. Thank you for being a regular reader, as it has been enjoyable to receive comments from and have a dialogue with you all.
