As promised I am continuing with SAGE advice from my good friend/mentor Pat Williams, General Manager of NBA Orlando Magic from his best selling Go for The Magic (see Resources).
Pat shares 4 ways to THINK TOMORROW:
1. “Define your mission in life.” WOW I am still working on that one myself at 68 years young! Actually may be I have MORE than ONE mission.
2. “Define your CORE (my emphasis) principles.” Think I have that covered. I sat down and listed them. I keep it on my iPod Touch; however I am still not reviewing them on a REGULAR basis as Randy Cohen recommends. Randy is the founder of TicketCity which has consistently been voted one of the BEST employers in Texas!
3. “Set your priorities.” Well I think Pat helped me with that one which is one of Walt Disney’s SECRETS: HAVE FUN! I left the position of CEO of a company I help found because it was NO longer FUN!
4. “Make your plans.” I believe I handle this one fairly well even though I am sure some of friends might disagree! I have been working my plan for FUN business SpyCraft University along with my partners on a daily basis since we created it. Since it is FUN, time flies!
More in next post!
