5. Define your standards (and stick to them)

What tasks and people give you the most joy and energy? Who and what give you the greatest return on your time investment? What personal priorities come before work? What will you do with your free time?

The clearer you are on these answers, the better your chances of loving life and work. It’s not complicated, but what is easy to do is even easier not to do. Love, peace, joy, and happiness come from clarity, which helps you say yes to what’s right and no to what isn’t. — Shaun Rawls, founder and CEO of Rawls Consulting; built The Rawls Group of Keller Williams to over $4 billion in annual sales; author of the upcoming book “‘F’-It-Less“; connect with Shaun on Facebook and Twitter
