Minding your own business is a critical success factor in life. I’m not talking about being nosy. Rather I’m talking about literally, minding your business rather than someone else’s.

This means that rather than complaining and irking about someone else’s project, work on your own.

Courageous ways you can mind your own business

1) Mind your sphere of influence

Think of the things that you have control over. These are the things that are in your circle of influence.
Let go of everything that falls out of that.

2) Feel pain before giving criticism

A great litmus test is to make sure that before you give criticism to someone, make sure the issue hurts
you. It should be weighing heavy on your heart.

3) Think about the role you play

This is another way to look at the circle of influence model. Imagine you are in a scene within a movie or
play. You can only play one character in that scene. So only play that character and play it to the best of
your ability.
