When I look back at my life and examine the things that have come along and made a real difference, I’m amazed at how simple most of them have been. When I distill down what actually made a difference, it usually comes down to a phrase, a quote, or a simple action.
For example, back in 2004, I heard a speaker at a conference speak four little words that changed my life forever. Four little words made all the difference.
I saw a demonstration at a leadership conference on video, that spoke to me in thousands of words. The demonstration was so simple, yet so profound. The result was a life changing shift in the way I do things.
I decided one day to clean off my desk for good. I tried a simple exercise that really made a difference. It took a whole five minutes to do, but resulted in a clean desk from then on. It was simple, yet profound.
Today I saw a blog post that can have a profound effect on your life. My friend Michael Hyatt has put together an e-book on creating a life plan. He is offering the book for free for a limited time. Do yourself a favor and download this. You just need to sign up for his email newsletter to get a copy. If you have dreams you want to accomplish you’ll need a plan to get there. This e-book will help you create concise plan for success.
Question: Have you had something rather insignificant really change your life?
