You cannot be worried, be angry, be frustrated and make money.

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

You can be habitually worried, angry, and frustrated...many people prove that.

But, how many successful people have you met who make habits of worry, anger, and frustration?

***

Worry, when held in controlled quantity, can motivate.

Anger has the ability to generate action...mostly destructive, but occasionally productive.

Frustration: the worst of the three; unproductive, inactive, unhealthy.

***

If you look into a mirror and see a worried, angry, frustrated face, you are peering into the eyes of a person who will never be wealthy. 

...on the other hand, you just may find that face smiles at you, laughs, gets into a better mood, and accomplishes something constructive.


Time management tip: file files. Their name lets us know what we are supposed to do with them.

Well...that is why they call them files isn't it?

I mean - those things don't have that name because of some other qualities...shouldn't we do our part to help them live up to their name yet not be confused with their less-flexible, more-abrasive cousins?

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Moles are small creatures and they make small hills.

If you perceive a molehill to be a mountain then you must be much smaller than a mole...you must be a tiny creature indeed.

Ambiguity poisons profitability.

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Confused sellers struggle to sell.

Confused buyers struggle to buy.

Confused technicians struggle to perform.

In so many ways, ambiguity thwarts the possibility of earning profits.

Curiosity & Attention to Detail...big parts of the cure.
