Knowing what you want 

"Never trade what you want in the moment for what you want the most
" - unknown  

Sometimes I loose sight of long
 term goals and benefits, because I get distracted by short term gains or struggles. I may not stick with the diet because I wanted the chocolate; or I get frustrated with an individual and may loose sight of the larger relationship with the overall company. Stay focused on the bigger picture and your long term goals- it matters more to win the war, not the battle.     -Amy
