Rude Awakening

What if civilization was once an idea, the most widespread idea with a lot of people making it work?

Here is what I learned over the weekend- that I am capable of starting up an idea that big and making it work. The best way I can explain the Innovative Leadership Seminar by Brian Tracy is as 'that experience that will make me overhaul my bio'. This weekend was the Proverbial 'it'.

I made the decision to go see Brian Tracy the second I saw the ad on someone's dp (talk about instant judgment calls).There and then I was clear what I wanted to achieve at the seminar:

     -Learn something new that would impact my life
     -Get an autograph from Brian Tracy
     -Take a picture with Brian Tracy

One of the most important things I learned is that every average individual gets at least 4 new ideas that could change their lives every year. The difference between wealthy people and others is this-

 "The most successful people constantly think about the things they want and how to get it and they constantly act on it". BT

Another important lesson I learned about priorities-

"Identify daily, the task that has the biggest consequences (or impact or value) and focus on it 100% until you complete it, before starting other activities. "

To practice it everyday-

"Always write down your goals and ask yourself-which of these tasks, if completed will make the greatest contribution in my organization/life and focus on it first"

Ever had so many ideas that they seem to cloud your mind and you don't know which one to go for first? This should help:

1. Make a list of 10 of your best ideas
2.Rewrite them out according to their level of impact
3. Pick the first 2 and write down another list of 10 things it will take to achieve them
4. Focus on doing those things from now on 80%

Trust me these principles are working for me. I am going to be sharing a lot more over the next following days...
