Josiah Mackenzie, a young tycoon and good friend of mine, sent me an email this morning with some insights he gained in the past month
* Make a conscious effort to keep in touch with your core group of
friends and colleagues. It’s far too easy to let an important
relationship fade away by being lazy in this area.
* Set aside a time each morning to read, reflect, and focus. It’s
the best way to start off your day.
* Audiobooks are essential if you want to be continually learning.
You can’t always set aside an hour for reading, but it’s easy to
fit in one hour of audiobooks while you’re jogging, standing in
line, or doing errands.
* Don’t be afraid to regularly take time off. Some of my best
inspirations have come when I tore up my to-do list and just spent
the day quietly alone.
* Put money on your goals if you’re serious about accomplishing
them. See the ‘Best Sites’ section of this email for a great
resource I’m using to do this.
Josiah just launched a GREAT networking tool (still waiting on my account buddy!) PalPad which I recommend everyone check out ASAFP. He’s also the brains behind an awesome site I write for, Young Wealth Weekly.
That Guy With the Nametag Scott Ginsberg has some fantastic thoughts (big surprise eh?) on how to effectively set goals. Here are my favorite five:
2. Whatever your present goals are, they’re too low.
6. Make a list of 101 goals. It’s tough, but this exercise will change your life.
11. Each year, have one major, HUGE goal. Let’s say it’s: “I will make 1 million dollars this year.” Write the term “one million” on a bunch of post it notes. Put them all around your office.
14. Put a little card by your desk that says, “Is what you’re doing RIGHT NOW consistent with your #1 goal?” I did this a few years ago and it absolutely kicked my goat setting into high gear.
24. Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, authors of Chicken Soup for the Soul talk about setting one BHAG, or “Big Harry Audacious Goal.” What’s yours?
Check out the rest.
