The best ideas have to win otherwise good people don’t stay. – Steve Jobs

The obvious temptation is to subscribe to hierarchy, politics, ego, and insecurity.

And if we’re not careful, we aren’t even aware we are subscribing.

Simple Does Not Mean Easy

Our Nation’s health is not some game to be played with slim odds of winning.

Simple and easy rarely travel together.

Insight: Use diet and exercise to lower your cholesterol. Simple concept? Yes. Easy? Look around at people and decide for yourself.

Running TV or newspaper ads is expensive. Or use You Tube, Twitter, Blogging, Facebook, their cost is almost zero.

Hardly a company out there that doesn’t have a “follow us” on Facebook and Twitter. Why is that? Duh. These viral addresses are now as important as a physical address used to be.

Are you satisfied?

When you wake up every day, what are some of the first things you do or think about?  Did you start thinking about today last night?

The workday begins the night before.

So last night, in thinking about yesterday’s post and the reference to the Fast Company article, I’m good with it ending the way it did.

Do you start blaming others and thinking about all the things “they” need to do? Or do you look in the mirror and analyze what you need to fix?

This will determine, in large part, your success or failure.

What was interesting was that just yesterday, these jeff noel blogs set a single day record for daily visits. It’s taken years to get “here”.

And I got here by doing stuff, not by anything else.

Be more:

  • Creative than you ever have
  • Focused than you ever have
  • Willing to fix yourself than you ever have
  • Determined than you ever have

And find your purpose.  That’s the key.  You know it and I know it. We all read about it, and listen to others talk about it.

Talk is cheap. And so is lying to ourselves.

Continuous improvement and ongoing professional education are crucial for staying competitive and thriving in a down economy.

Rubbish.

We should be doing all we can to do stuff, not read and study stuff.

We should be doing stuff. Stuff that our gut tells us is right. Stuff that our gut tells us needs to be started yesterday.

We can read articles and attend seminars, but at some point, in my humble opinion, we need to start doing something, something more.

At the end of this post, you’ll have a link to a recent  Fast Company article about finding creative, untraditional ways to solve unsolvable problems challenges.

It’s four pages long.  I “got it” after the first page, but read the second page as well, out of guilt – for fear of looking obnoxious or boastful.  Whatever, right?

Listen, I’m so annoyed and fired up, that I need to end this post now. After some cool down time, will try again tomorrow to finish this. Well, maybe. Maybe my point has already been made.

PS. Just for the record, I read a ton, in between doing stuff and getting uncommon results.
