Business of You

What if we managed ourselves like successful innovative businesses do?

I like you and everyone else are a business.  My primary customer is my future self.  Additional customers include others in my life as well as the environment I live in.  The product of my business is who I am now.  The service I provide is stewarding the resources creating the product and its usefulness to the customers.  My success is determined by my decisions and the actions I take with the intent of exceeding the expectations of my customers.
