I have been pondering on what I wanted my first blog of the year to be about. Should it be about public relations, my other personal interests or should it be about the resolutions that I have made for 2013. It is January 15 and I have finally gotten over my writer’s block thanks to Linked In and Richard Branson. Having just read Branson’s blog on making lists I had an “aha” moment.
For the last 15 months or so I have been trying to implement into my life 10 principles as cited by Og Mandino in The Greatest Salesman in the World. I keep falling off the wagon, but whenever I am able to review my day the night before and plan the day ahead I am more productive and get more out of my day. Branson revealed his secret to success right there in that blog. He is a planner. He writes his ideas and work through his things to do everyday systematically. It is simple yes, but as I have found it takes discipline. Actually DISCIPLINE is my word for 2013. Somehow this word has stuck in my mind and there is the realization that nothing is achieved without a measure of discipline.
