Inspiration Book 3: The Greatness Guide

Been read a book titled The Greatness Guide by Robin Sharma.  I would call it as a Guide for Greatness rather than book. Really Robin named it well. Here I have compiled the topics which I impressed more and describing in my way.

Make Time to Think.

Nice point. Always do spend some time to think before doing/starting any activities. This will surely help to get a clear picture about your activity.

More thinking will make you less reactive.

Think about yourself – Get up early, spend some fresh morning to think about your goals, today’s action plan. If you do this continuously you will become a best utilizer of your time.

Listen Twice as much as you Speak.

You were given two ears and one mouth for a reason:

to listen twice as much as you speak.

Listen carefully before responding to people. Listening is one of the best way to honor the people and it will create a deep human connection.

Learn to say No.

Don’t say YES all the time, say NO to something which is unimportant. First know your priorities/goals and what gets to be done by you.  Surely some people around you might be unhappy. Don’t feel for that because you can’t manage all the things by saying YES to all people.

I have seen people who are working in software industries mostly saying YES to everything. This includes myself too, should change it first.

Focus + Daily Improvement + Time = Genius

It’s a formula for fundamentals of success. Understand it and your life will never be the same.

Be focused on your dreams and put consistent efforts daily, the time will come automatically and people will call you as genius. Do this experiment, you will find a difference.

Problems reveal Genius

Problems give you an opportunity to improve yourself. Don’t backslide of your problems, face it with positive attitude & energy, you will become a problem solver in both your organization and personal life.

A mistake is only a mistake if you make it twice.

Grace under Pressure.

Despite normal people, extraordinary character people solve inevitable situations differently. They use their stumbling blocks as stepping stones to greatest life.

We always have the choice to be strong and positive when things fall apart.

Love your Irritations

Nice quote from psychologist Carl Jung

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.

Things that irritate you and make you angry are the situations help you to evolve as a good human being. Those are the steps/gifts of your growth.

Relax + More Fun = More Productivity.

More productivity/creativity comes from the moment when you are more relaxed and happy. Don’t mess up with your work all the time. Spend some time to go for walk, chat with your colleagues/friends freely, and just take a nap. This will help you to be more productive.

Two Magic Words

Thank You is the two magic word, Take a moment and thank people in your life who need to be appreciated for their support.

Good things happen to people who do good things.

I was surprised to read this line, because it’s almost similar to my dad’s quote with a subtle change.

Good things happen to people who think good things.

I will write a separate blog to thank people who are supporting in my life.
