It has certainly been an interesting couple of months for all of us and when we are hit with challenges in life we sometimes forget about the little things that can truly make our life AMAZING!

I don’t recall where I got this list of “62 Things”.  I do know I found it probably 10+ years ago and shared it with my team the day I first read it.

This list was printed and filed in my desk at home in my ‘Inspirational’ folder – a folder I started years ago where I could put articles, quotes, stories of human perseverence, etc…that gave me chills or inspired me in that moment when I first read them and knew that I would want to revisit again in the future.

I pulled this out of that folder this morning…..and oh what a great reminder that I needed today!

Many of these are so simple to do yet so profound and powerful in the result they can ultimately produce in life.  I am certainly guilty of NOT doing many of these things over the last several months and so I will be reviewing these as a part of my morning routine over the next several weeks to help remind me how a simple act can not only improve my life but potentially make a huge difference in another person’s life as well.

Please enjoy and share with others in your life!  Have a great Friday!

62 Things

  1. Remember that leadership isn’t about your position. It’s about your influence.

  2. Get fit like a pro athlete

  3. Lift people up versus tearing people down

  4. Protect your good name. An impeccable reputation takes a lifetime to build. And 60 seconds to lose

  5. Surround yourself with positive, ethical people who are committed to excellence

  6. Remember that even a 1% daily innovation rate amounts to at least a 100% rate of innovation in 100 days

  7. Believe in your dreams (even when others laugh at them)

  8. Measure your success, not by your net worth but by your self-worth (and how happy you feel)

  9. Take an intelligent risk every 24 hours. No try-No Win.

  10. Read “Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist”

  11. Watch “Man on Wire”

  12. Regardless of your title at work be a team builder.

  13. Remember that business is all about relationships and human connections

  14. Say “please” more

  15. Say “thank you” more

  16. Know your Big 5: the five things that need to happen by the end of this year for you to feel it’s been your best year yet

  17. Read your Big 5 every morning while the rest of the world is asleep

  18. Read “As You Think”. At least twice this year.

  19. Be willing to fail. It’s the price of greatness

  1. Focus less on making money and more on creating value

  2. Spend less, save more

  3. Leave everything you touch better than you found it

  4. Be the most positive person in every room you’re in

  5. Run your own race

  6. Stay true to your deepest values and best ideals

  7. Write a handwritten thank you note to a customer/friend/loved one every day

  8. When you travel, send love letters to your kids on hotel stationary. In time, they’ll have a rich collection to remember your travels by

  9. Read “Atlas Shrugged”

  10. Be a problem solver versus a trouble maker

  11. Rather than doing many things at mediocrity do just a few things-but at mastery

  12. Honor your parents

  13. Commit to doing great work-whether anyone notices it or not. It’s one of life’s best sources of happiness.

  14. Give more than you receive (another of the truths of happiness)

  15. Have your 1/3/5/10/25 years goals recorded on paper and review them weekly

  16. Be patient. Slow and steady wins the race. The only reason businesses that went from zero to a billion in a year or two get featured in magazines is because 99% of businesses require a lot more time to win

  17. Under promise and then over deliver

  18. See part of your job as “a developer of people” (whether you work in the boardroom or the mailroom)

  19. Wear your heart on your sleeve. When people see you’re real, they’ll fall in love with you

  20. Be authentic versus plastic

  21. Read “The Alchemist”

  22. Remember that life wants you to win. So get out of your own way

  23. Consider that behind every fear lives your next level of growth (and power)

  24. Eat less food

  25. Drink more water

  26. Rest when you need to

  27. Read “SUCCESS” magazine

  28. Write your eulogy and then live your life backwards

  29. Demand the best from yourself

  30. Remember that the more you go to your limits, the more your limits will expand

  31. See everything that happens to you as an opportunity to grow (and therefore, as a precious gift)

  32. Be obsessed with learning and self-development

  33. Become comfortable alone (you’re the only person you get to be with your whole life)

  34. Smile. It’s a stunningly effective way to win in business and life

  35. Reflect on the shortness of life

  36. Be bold when it comes to your dreams but gentle with those you love

  37. Remember that success is dangerous because it can kill drive/innovation/passion and going the extra mile. Be successful yet stay hungry

  38. Read “The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin”

  39. Be of deep value to this world

  40. Own beautiful things but don’t let them own you

  41. Use excellent words.

  42. Laugh more.

  43. Don’t complain, gossip or be negative.

  44. Plan as if you’ll live forever but live as if you’ll die tomorrow.

  45. Feel free to pass these lessons on to those you want to help
