Achieve your dream

People put a lot of obstacles in front of their dreams. It's actually not that hard to achieve them - it sounds cliche', but the biggest obstacles are in your mind. Just write down what you want to do, write out the steps, and just take the plunge!

New Ideas

If you're not allowed to implement new ideas, you stop having them. And vice versa: when you can do whatever you want, you have more ideas about what to do.

What success means to you

Each of us views success in a different way. For some, success means advanced academic degrees or continual upward progression on the career and money ladder. For others, it is spending quality time with family or helping others in the community. Many of us get tripped up by following others' definition of success and wonder why we still aren't happy when we attain our goals. The key to fulfillment is to define what success means to you and make a plan to get there.

Get those washboard abs!

If you're afraid that obtaining washboard abs is completely out of your reach, you are not alone. There's more to it than just doing a thousand crunches a day. Unless you modify your diet and burn belly fat in addition to those abdominal exercises, that six-pack will always just look like a keg.

How is your company going to compete in the world? If you can't compete with low-cost labor, you have to compete with innovations. How to innovate? Here are some ideas:

  • Balance revolutionary with very useful.
  • Incorporate big and small ideas.
  • The goal of the innovator is to have a positive impact on your company, your country and yourself.
  • Innovation, like growing up, sometimes needs to get done in the midst of adversity.
  • Remember, the transistor was invented by three people, not 30,000. The laser was invented by two.
  • Innovative ideas start small.
  • Never lose sight of the actual goal of innovation: not new technology, but what new technology can deliver to us - awareness, insight, interaction. And freedom.

The best advice I ever got...[Michael Bloomberg]

"I can't remember who told me this, but I certainly didn't grow up knowing it, so I must have gotten this advice at Salomon Brothers in the 1970s. The advice was, first, always ask for the order, and second, when the customer says yes, stop talking. I have watched more people make great presentations, whether they're trying to sell to their family or in business or in government, and never get to the point of what they're trying to get out of it. And too many times when the customer says yes, the person who got that answer just doesn't stop talking. Worst advice? The worst advice that people can take is to react before they've had a chance to think. I think we all say things and wish we hadn't said them. Ready, shoot, aim is not the smartest policy."

- Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City, founder of Bloomberg LP
