Think About This.

Here's something to think about... There are many people who are wondering what happened and they have no defenses to protecting what they worked so hard to build over their lifetimes... unfortunately they do not know how to reinvent themselves to take advantage of the great opportunities that are being created right now. Remember this... the thinking and the behavior that got you where you are today... will keep you living in the dark ages! You need to be reinventing yourself right now. You need to be thinking how you are going to learn more skills... because you need to become a bigger thinker tomorrow to go where you have never gone before because yesterday's thinking is not what's going to create your opportunities of tomorrow!

Personally, I am working longer hours on myself to learn more than I ever have at any one time in my life. We have all heard Abe Lincoln's advice... "if I have 6 hours to chop down a tree, I am going to spend 4 hours sharpening my axe." I have always believed that every hour you spend in planning or learning a new job skill that you will increase your productivity 4 fold. So my challenge to you... "how many of you are spending any time right now at home before you go to bed to increase your effectiveness?" Jim Rohn a great teacher and very successful entrepreneur say... "if you were to spend just one hour a day on becoming more knowledgeable about your craft... in 5 years, you will be in the top 1% of the people in your industry!"

I would encourage all of you to pass on anything that you are doing whether it is a best practice or even just a great thought... maybe even a good laugh... I would love to hear from you!

I am excited about 2009... more to come... "Famous"
