Becky brings her paper and pencil to-do list to bed -- plan tomorrow today -- and know what you're going to do right when you wake up. ONWARD!
Be timely in your communication -- Becky returns emails immediately -- even if she doesn't have an immediate answer.

"Be able to write your own vision -- and -- plan the vision for your own company."
"Once you start measuring things you automatically improve."
