Not reading to simply be better than you were last week.
Using lifts/elevators when by taking the stairs you raise your heart rate which helps you cope with the next meeting.
Using it’s when we mean its. And vice versa.
Allowing the business to become a country club with lounges, Italian coffee machines and lunch-time yoga when it needs to be a base camp with a planning room, check-lists and focused, passionate individuals poised for the assault.
Rule 7: So much of what you want, including happiness, love, affluence, wisdom, authenticity, good health and longevity is available to you now. Seize it.
So you want: Happiness: decide to be happy. Remind yourself of Rule 6. Remind yourself that although all stuff and acquisitions from fresh-pasta makers to cool job-titles can cause temporary blips of joy, they are not cumulative. Only your own growth and full realisation of your personal talents will make you fully happy and joyful. Love: invest in relationships. No relationship will work without attention, time and energy. Give it those and it will blossom; remember that love is a verb. Affluence: break the connections between happiness = money and your worth = money. Ask yourself, what is really important? And how much fun can you have without money? When you begin to shift your mindset (re-read Rule 5; WYSIWYG) you’ll notice how much you really do have. Wisdom: start reading again and not just reading, studying. Start asking questions again. As a child we are given the dots. Life is about connecting them. That’s Wisdom. Authenticity: stop the bulls**t. Stop playing games with yourself and with others. Deep down inside if you listen to your heart, if you listen to your gut you know what is going on. You know what needs to be done. Start tuning in again to that intuition. Good health and longevity: they are a simple decision away. You know exactly what to do, to boost your health, to increase your longevity. Don’t fool yourself any longer. Do it. And do it now.
