Clearing the sticky notes from my computer desktop.
Do you know what it is that you want do? If you want to be a pro at anything you have to know what that thing is. You cannot create a plan until you have both and entrance and an exit strategy.
Once you know what you want to do your next step has to believe that it is something you can accomplish. We give up a lot of times because we hit an obstacle and figure we are not able to achieve success. You ARE capable. It might take you longer than someone else but you CAN get there.
Now that you have your plan and the confidence to execute it you need to expect changes. Nothing goes according to plan 100% of the time. You have to be flexible in the face of the course corrections that will come.
Action > Knowledge
Last but not least you have to get out there and do something. Every day you need to be taking some step forward. Reading and analysis is good but you should live by these three words, DO IT NOW.
Get out there and do something great.
