Conscious Limiting of My Success

I love this quote my friend Bob Kodzis uttered during a recent noshing together.  He used the term, "conscious limiting of my success."  What he meant was the recognition on his part not to let success or opportunity overwhelm and take over the occupations of his personal life and his family.

This is one of the things I have often feared about success.  Will I be sucked into a busy world that will take me away from my wife and my family?  I look at successful people and I remember from my time in L.A.  People can be so busy that their lives are all consumed with the busyness of the business.

But what a novel idea?  To make a conscious choice to put limits on the amount of time you will allow to be taken for your exploits.

I endeavor to be like my friend Bob and remain conscious of the choices being asked of me.  I choose to be aware to limit the extent of those choices and the myriad of possibilities and to keep a governor on those choices.
