Successful people don’t wait to get a raise; they work hard to earn a raise. Successful businesses don’t wait for higher prices to deliver greater value; they deliver greater value to earn higher prices. Successful entrepreneurs don’t wait for a payoff to give their all to a startup; they give their all so they can earn a decent payoff.

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning

How A Simple Checklist Can Improve Learning | Success | Scoop.it

"From reminding us of what to pack for a trip to helping doctors perform surgery, checklists are crucial for projects that require sequential steps or a series of tasks. As Atul Gawande points out in his book “Checklist Manifesto,” checklists break down complex tasks and also ensure consistency and efficiency if more than one person is working on a project."

8 Tips To Come Up With Winning Ideas When You Are Brainstorming Alone

8 Tips To Come Up With Winning Ideas When You Are Brainstorming Alone | Success | Scoop.it

by Saikat Basu


"Brainstorming conjures up images of teams trying to hash out wild ideas around complex problems. Two heads think better than one, but brainstorming is as much about individual problem solving as it is about the group. The energies required for solo brainstorming are probably more, but the methods to build up the “storm” of ideas aren’t that different.


"One of our readers had asked – How do writers at MakeUseOf find ideas for content? It’s a daily ritual. Brainstorming alone is half the fun; but it is a necessity for us creative types who work alone in our pajamas. Call it the search for inspiration, the Web has always been a useful ally when it comes to thinking up creative solutions and ideas. Here are a few ways to go solo with your brainstorming."

Although I do not set out my clothes for the next day, unless I am traveling (doesn't work for me)...all of the noted tips are excellent suggestions!

 

Reviewing the day and shifting the pending tasks forward has helped me to structure my day.  Each day I review the pending tasks, read my emails from the evening, list today's tasks realistically, place a value and order, and then I start my day.

 

What tips do you have that help you remain prodctive and focused?

 

PS - Live on Purpose!
