WOW! We have hit a milestone – 50 posts as Drill Sarge for Entrepreneurs! I sure hope you have gotten some value out of these posts! I sure have!
Today we continue with the techniques that my good friend/mentor Pat Williams, General Manager of the NBA Orlando Magic, shares regarding BLUE SKY THINKING.
Remember the first was EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN.
2. READ! Oh how true, Pat! I have been a vociferous READER since I got my first pair of glasses in the third grade!
Also by READING EVERY DAY I hopefully learn something new that allows my brain to have a NEW DENDRITE added to help stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia as we discussed in previous post.
Here is what Pat says about READING in his Go For The Magic (see Resources): “Have you ever stopped to consider what a book truly is? It is a PIECE OF THE HUMAN MIND (my emphasis) sitting on a shelf!
I LOVE that definition! So every time I read be it fiction (like my favorite the late Robert Ludlum) to non-fiction like Pat and The Donald I am privileged to have them sharing a piece of THEIR brilliant MINDS!
So READ, GRUNTS! That’s an order!
