So here it is....
Be flexible, don't allow your EGO to get in the way. The times I have been most successful, I have just gone with my gut feeling on something (and the opposite has been true more often than not). Now, the precursor to this little bit of wisdom is to work through what you really want - because what you want when you're 16 is not the same thing as what you want when you're 30 - and now that I'm in my mid-40s, my priorities have changed again.
Now, here's the other part of the story....
Here's the "back track" of how I was tagged with this little assignment:
I was tagged by Coach
Coach was tagged by I'm Forty What?
I'm Forty What? was tagged by Mig
Mig was tagged by [can't find that one], but here is the Google Blog Search Results.
Now, what you have to do - if you're spending time to read my blog - is consider yourself tagged. Go create a blog entry with the heading "Simply Successful Secrets" then give yourself a few minutes to think about it (not too much, the best answers are the ones the just "pop" into your mind). Now, because I believe that the power of the internet works and blogs give people the power to reach out to others (and ego drives us all, so search for your blog or name on the internet is something we all do), here are the people I'm going to tag....
The Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman
Metrodad - btw, I love the graphic
HitTail - Mike Levin - Mike, why not tell us what secrets you've used at HitTail, there seems to be lots of buzz...
Digital Street Journal - how about it Jonathan?
How about a Celebraty Blogger - Guy Kawasaki - what are your feelings about success (remember the KISS principle employed here)
And I know first hand that Seth Godin searches for his name on the internet - so how about giving the MEME some love Seth?
And last, but not least, how about Sig at Thingamy - he has wisdom to spare.
So there you go - Thanks Coach for including me!!
