Grow and achieve in the New Year

I saw this information written by Jason Dorsey a couple of years ago. I love the big thinker ideas. Over the years I have always sought out big thinkers in my industry and it has given me ideas to grow and achieve more.

Find the #1 "thinker" in your industry and sign up or download every free resource they offer online. Then do the same with the leading thinker in your specific functional area, such as sales marketing or management. This one step gives you cutting-edge insights direct to your smartphone - no chalkboard necessary.

Watch a TED ( Technology, Entertainment and Design) video every day. Every Day! I like to watch at 3pm when my energy ebbs. This recharges me to finish the day strong. I also like to share my favorites with friends.

Create a monthly learning theme. Each month look for additional online resources that go deeper into that specific topic. Here are a couple of themes to get you going: motivation, communication and creativity.

See Your Future? I hope the above review will stimulate a fabulous beginning to the New Year. Get coffee with those who will help you stretch and grow.  Build that limousine of power partners so together you can have the ride of your life.

May you have joyous holiday season with family and friends.

Looking forward to connecting in the New Year.
