I am trying to share some lessons learned in life and corporate America so that others can avoid the same mistakes I made along the way and enjoy a more successful and balanced life.

How did a regular guy competing around peers with the highest of educational pedigrees in the country rise to the top levels of corporate America? What skills did it take for him to earn millions of dollars working in a company rated "Most Innovative" by Fortune Magazine for six consecutive years? How did he maintain his personal values while sitting on the executive committee of a company that succumbed so spectacularly to scandal and downfall?

In Just Because You Can Doesn't Mean You Should: Keys to a Successful Life, author and former Enron employee Mike S. McConnell shares his unique tips for success. He combines specific personal and business lessons, experiences, affirmations, and actions that have made him the person he is today, including:

  • Keeping a journal; writing down thoughts and keeping perspective.
  • Living with an attitude of gratitude and keeping it.
  • Living with passion in everything you do.
  • Keeping a positive attitude in difficult times.
  • Using goals and objectives to achieve success
