Mālama pono means ‘take care of yourself’. When you put yourself first, your business and your life reflect that graciously with harmony and abundance. Here’s a reference list that can be helpful in clarifying ones priorities, personally and professionally:
What Does it Take:
Perseverance and failure cannot coexist. When all is said and done, perseverance is the ultimate success insurance. Nothing can take its place. Living your life with ambition and drive is the key to creating success.
What Do You Want:
Even though to some, this is pretty straight forward question, a few might still be pondering what direction that they’d like to go in. So, still not sure which career is right for you? You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to pin-point after utilizing the Setting Career Goals questionnaire.
What Do You Have:
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
— Melody Beattie, best selling author and journalist

What Steps Are You Committed to Taking:
For myself personally, I start backwards from attaining my ultimate goal or desire and back track from that. It enables me to be more precise and thorough. Of course, you can also start from making a list from say 1 through 6 and use short immediate actions you can take. Complete these actions starting from one week, one month, three months, six months, one year and two-five years.
There are two ways of tracking your success: quantitatively and qualitatively.
In order to achieve measurable results, analyzing your previous steps is an important process towards keeping innovation moving forward in your company.
A big part of innovation is staying on top of market trends, understanding customer needs and wants and consistently looking to the future to grow the company.
