. Action Exercises

You've gone as far as you can with what you now know. Any progress you make
from this moment onward will require that you learn and practice something

COMMIT TO LIFELONG LEARNING: One quality of leaders and high achievers in
every area seems to be a commitment to ongoing personal and professional
development. They look upon themselves as self-made people, as "works in
progress." They never become complacent or satisfied. They are always
striving toward ever greater heights of knowledge and understanding.

GET TO THE TOP IN FIVE YEARS: Earl Nightingale said many years ago that one
hour per day of study in your chosen field was all it takes. One hour per
day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years.
Within five years you'll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be
one of the best people in the world at what you do.

READ EVERYTHING YOU CAN: Read all you can about your field. Subscribe to the
executive book clubs and book summaries. Build your own library of important
books in your field. Never be cheap about your education.

In fact, if you make a decision today to invest 3 percent of your annual
income back into yourself, back into your own personal and professional
development, you will probably never have to worry about Money again.

GO THROUGH 50 BOOKS PER YEAR: If you read one hour per day in your field,
that will translate into about one book per week. One book per week
translates into about 50 books per year. Fifty books per year will translate
into about 500 books over the next 10 years.

JOIN THE TOP 1 PERCENT OF Money EARNERS: If you read only one book per
month, that will put you into the top 1 percent of income earners in our
society. But if you read one book per week, 50 books per year, that will
make you one of the best-educated, smartest, most capable and highest-paid
people in your field. Regular reading will transform your life completely.

ACTION EXERCISES: Here are two things you can do immediately to put these
ideas into practice.

First, ask the successful people around you for their best book
recommendations. Whatever advice they give you, immediately go out and buy
those books, take them home and begin reading for one hour every morning
before you start work.

Second, when you read, underline and take notes when you find important
ideas that you can use. Implement them immediately. Take action of some kind
on good ideas. You will be amazed at the change in your career.

The few who do care are the envy of the many who only watch." - Jim Rohn
