I came across these ten tips from Donald Trump recently on the Leadership Now blog. Great stuff – enjoy!
- Pay attention to national and international news and finance coverage at least several times a day, preferably hourly. In volatile times, vigilance is necessary.
- Absorb, assess, and then act. Knowledge without action is impotence.
- When a tsunami hits, there’s no time for procrastination. Keep your momentum in tune with the times.
- Avoid your comfort zone — it’s probably outdated anyway.
- If you’re honest, you should know the questions that should be asked, as well as the answers. That’s probably why there’s so much confusion out there today.
- Remember The Blitz. That can put things into perspective. Things may be tough and getting tougher, but we’re not being bombed day in and day out either. If you don’t know what The Blitz is, use your time wisely to study WWII to find out.
- Is your life half empty or half full? Half is better than zip. Count your blessings.
- Realize that fear is the exact opposite of faith.
- Resolve to be bigger than your problems. Who’s the boss?
- Don’t negate your own power. Whatever you’ve been dealt, know you can deal with it.
And I would add one of my own: When the world seems like it’s coming to an end, remember, you know the One that brought about it’s beginning.
