Hi Team...

Happy Monday!

November is here... IT IS TIME TO GO!

We must finish what we started this year...

Whatever you decided on in January that you were going to accomplish this can make it happen.


I just need you to commit. Today. Finish the job.

Now, I know this sounds preachy- but I want you to win, badly.

As a Coach, it is my job to get the best out of you.

It is my job to make sure you are doing your best.

Speaking of your best: What is your best?

Do you know?

Well, in order to do your best, you must know what your best is. 

That starts by defining what "doing your best" means....

Doing your best is really a code / standard that you have set for your self.

Let me share mine:

  • Complete all tasks/ works to the best of your ability...
  • Make every person you do business with/ meet feel better than before you met/connected with them..
  • Do what you say you are going to do...
  • Finish what you start..
  • Meet 1-new person per day...
  • Do something physical each day
  • Hit A Single Everyday!

That is it.

Fairly simple but a strong checklist for me.

But, if gives me a list to cross-check myself against. 

At the end of each day, I can simply ask myself: Did you do your best?

If I answer yes, it was a great day! 

Not good- GREAT!

If you do not have YOUR LIST yet that defines your best, today is the day.

Simple bullet points.

I want to leave you with this: Only you know when you give/ gave your best.

Let's make it happen.

Come on.


Your Coach,



Dana Cavalea
