Here’s the way – The Action Plan

1. Be Remarkable
Mark Sanborn says you can’t satisfy your audience (or customers) until you know what they want. Write down a dozen things your top five clients would want. Then write down ways your business can help them get it.

2. Do Less
Darren Hardy says there’s a difference between being busy and being productive. Write down 10 things you need to stop doing so you can focus on your primary goals and get better results.

3. Get Clear
Cynthia Kersey says you can achieve clarity on your life goals by first deciding how you want to be remembered. List the qualities, deeds and characteristics for which you’d like to be remembered.

4. Power Up on Good Thoughts
Louise Hay says all good begins with accepting yourself. Make a list of eight little things you like about yourself. Each time you have a negative thought, replace it with a positive thought from your list.

5. Stand-Alone Success
Singer Lionel Richie says to succeed over the long term, each of your projects has to stand on its own merits—as if it were your first. Jot down three ways you can make your latest project have more polish.

6. Do Like Craig Does
Craigslist founder Craig Newmark says you can do business well by doing good for people. Write down all the ways your business helps people. Now think of two new ideas you can add to your list.

7. Take Control
Is there an area of your life that you have let slide? Is it your business? Wealth? Your relationships? Once you identify which aspect needs work, write out your game plan for taking back control.

8. Serve Your Best
Serena Williams takes her skill set off court and uses it in her business. List your top three skills and evaluate whether you are putting them to work for you.

9. Play Games
GameStop COO Paul Raines empowers store managers by giving them input on corporate activities. Ask three team members who deal directly with customers for their feedback on your product or service.

10. Create a Bridge of Friendship
The authors of Nordie’s at Noon say good friendships are vital in seeing adversity through to the other side. Call a friend whom you haven’t spoken to in a while and reconnect—today.
