I love checklists. They serve as powerful reminders to help insure that we get things done and focus in on what’s most important. I recently went back to the third book in the Mind Capture series and pulled this from chapter six titled, Innovation Trumps Mediocrity, and wanted to share it as helpful reminder of a few things you can do to improve both your business and life.
#1. Study and read in multiple disciplines
#2. Always maintain curiosity as to why things are the way they are
#3. Listen for problems in your market or industry and create or find ways to solve them
#4. Learn how great organizations get ahead and model their success within your business
#5. Always capture and record great ideas immediately when they strike by having a pen and paper ready
#6. Bounce new ideas off of key associates, customers and those you network with online and offline
#7. Circulate by attending new events
#8. Hang around successful people and soak in their wisdom and ideas
#9. Make it a goal to implement one new idea into your business at least once a week
#10. Get in better physical shape so you can cultivate more mental and physical energy
#11. Ask questions and make it a goal to learn at least one new thing per day that advances your goals
#12. Build leisure and goof off time within your busy schedule as many of the best ideas will hit you when you least expect it and are in a relaxed state of mind.
