Musings from Rome

Inspired by Tom Corleys book – Rich Habits — The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals,

1. Understand what wealth is to you – define your “why” 

2. Once you understand your why – understand your “what” – understand what success is to you – create SMART goals – long term , medium term , short term 
Specific , measurable , achievable, realistical and time frame

3. have many good daily habits and limit your  bad ones!

– I watch too much TV –   I limit myself to one hour of TV per day. 

– I don’t remember names – I write down names and remember them. 

– I get angry quickly – remember to breathe and count to 10 (sometimes 20 ) before responding

– I tend to criticise – always think of something nice to say – before starting to criticise 

4. Commit to self improvement – continual learning 

5. Be open to opportunities – don’t be too rigid and keep an open mind

6. Stay focussed (contradicts keep and open mind)

7. Take care of your health 

Eat right and exercise regularly – make it part of your daily routine 

 8. Create and strengthen existing relationships with people you know like and trust – make referrals and focus on helping others – law of reciprocation – the universe will reward you

 9. Take action – do it now – Maurice Goldberg has a great quadrant of knowledge and action – from bottom left 

– gambler – big action , little knowledge 

– cynic – no action no knowledge 

– dreamer – no action big knowledge 

– star – taking action with knowledge 

10. Stay positive – change your mindset from a negative to a positive – this can be learned and needs to be practiced until it becomes a habit. If there is a setback in your journey to success – treat it as a learning experience .

11. Earn more than you spend – or if you are investing – know that you are investing – or if you are spending more – understand that it is for a limited period 

12. Have a team of advisors, mentors and coaches – people at the top of their game have many coaches , mentors and teachers 

13. Listen – as Alan Pathmarajah (my mentor) says – listen and silent have the same letters 

14. Go beyond – do more than what is required 

15. Take responsibility – don’t blame anything on anyone or anything – life will throw you curveballs – deal with it!

16. Be passionate about what you do – love it , practice it , nurture it, become the best at it

17 . Be persistent – if you know it’s right – don’t give up – 

18. practice it until you perfect it – and then make it a habit! Strengthen your memory bank.

(Btw – saw a great movie in the plane – inside out – check out the memory bank) 

19. Don’t be afraid to fail ! Push the boundaries , innovate and explore .

20. Focus, think and Enjoy

21. Reward yourself and your team regularly 

22. Give your team “food and circus ” 

What are some of your gems?
