Do Something Now Today

I am sure you personally are the go-getter and living your life to the max. But to everyone else, you can do more. We have many constraints on our daily life, but most are self-imposed. Write down the few things you really want to do in life, big things. Start today!

I almost always start with a book or two or more to give myself a good background in anything new. Then I like to ask others who have been there before. And if you don’t know where to start, then get a book on how to start.

The Ripple Effect

There is so much potential in the world. If everyone did a little more just to improve themselves the ripple effect would be overwhelming. There are probably other books on this, but Connected by Nicholas Christakis is a very good book discussing this.

“Just as ripples spread out when a single pebble is dropped into water, the actions of individuals can have far-reaching effects.” – Dalai Lama

Be a millionaire?

No, you don’t have to be a millionaire or have that goal to have a tremendous impact in the world. But if you want that I guarantee it is within reach.

A Lot of Talking About My Sales Book

I did not get much done this whole year except talking about my sales book. Yes, I was putting some words on paper and taking notes in my sales book journal, but not as much as I should have. I talked to my employees, my family, my friends, and strangers, but not much got done. I had already read so many sales books over the years it was not funny. I had read them to get better at selling and negotiating. But now I needed to read for research to write my book. I bought and read many more sales books. Everyone had an angle, but most were saying the same thing. We are all selling all the time, so I thought I had a good topic, but honestly after reading all those extra books on sales, I did not think I could offer anything new. I would have to pick my own angle, my own buzz words then say what everybody else said. I guess I had lost the spark somewhere towards the end of 2010 to help people with a sales book.
