If you spend most of your time "above the line" you will be most effective in your life and work
Where are you spending most of your time?
When the chips are down try asking yourself the question: "How am I contributing to this problem, and what in my power can I do to get the result I want?"
When you switch your focus from being a victim to working on the problem you will feel a great weight being lifted from your shoulders.
'Above the line' is 'learn and grow mode!'
