1 — Practised ignorance

Ignoring the things that distract us is the quintessential ingredient in the pursuit of success

Say no to almost everything

2 — Just do it

Everyone has an idea or a belief that they could shape a specific industry by altering it to their will

But they wait

Plant as many seeds as possible, this will give you multiple opportunities to succeed.

3 — Don’t stop

Your chance to never stop learning is your super power

Read for 1 hour each day

42% of college graduates never read another book after college so thinks how far ahead that could get you

4 — Generalise and Conquer

Spend 1,000 hours on 10 different subjects

The benefit of being better at 10 things than 90% of the population rather than than 99% of the world at one is monumental

5 — Constantly evolve

Make at least one improvement that makes you better at something every single day

Wake up every day and ask yourself what is the 1% improvement I can change to make myself better personally and professionally

6 — Devils Advocate

Play devil’s advocate with yourself and develop an understanding, if not an empathy, of the contradiction of your own beliefs

Considering dissenting opinion lets you develop means to appeal to their sensibilities you would never have considered

Stay nimble and willing to change and you can profit from the altering landscape around you

7 — Share

Successful people share their ideas relentlessly

If you’re not comfortable releasing an idea for wider public consumption share it with people you know

8 — Philanthropy

The value you will receive in return will be priceless

Reach out and tell them

If you don’t share your ideas you’ll never benefit from them

What do you have to lose?

9 — Question Everything

Understand the obstacles they have overcome and the pitfalls you can avoid

It’s worth remembering even the most successful among us are people too and almost universally everyone likes to help

It’s as simple as writing an email

10 — Time

When was the last time you took an hour to just think?

Without thinking how can you develop ideas?

We are all equally creative if we allow ourselves the opportunity to be

Then you can invent the future
