Twelve Thoughts for Friday


Thinking... T-Shirt

Twelve Thoughts for Friday (or whichever day you’re reading this on).

  1. Reading regularly is important.
  2. Don’t expect different results if you keep doing what you’ve always done.
  3. If you want to be change the way you think and act, do spend time with people and communities who think and act the way you’d like to be.
  4. Don’t look externally for validation, but do regularly measure your progress against your own markers.
  5. Don’t compare yourself to others, especially what you see of others on Social Media. Facebook is the edited highlight reel of our lives.
  6. Do finish work early today. I’ve yet to meet someone in the later years of their life who ever told me they regretted not working longer hours.
  7. Do that one thing you wish you had more time to do for just one week. Don’t have time? Don’t watch Television this week.
  8. Do what you love to do every day. Don’t give up until you’re doing this.
  9. Do realise that you can do anything, but also realise that you can’t do everything.
  10. Don’t kid yourself that Facebook is important to your success.
  11. Do consider that to achieve more, you often have to do less. The key is to understanding what you need to do less of.
  12. Finally – don’t keep waiting for the right moment to tell those who you love, respect and who influence you how much you appreciate them. That right moment is now. Right now. A telephone call is great, a hand-written note is good, but even an e-mail is better than not saying anything at all.
