Discover Resources for Your Success By: Darren Hardy-Part #2/3


 

9. Networking Tools. Your networth rarely exceeds your network. You cannot become successful as a hermit; you need people. A few contact management options are ACT!™, GoldMine® and, of course, Outlook® and Entourage® (Mac). There are a few great Web-based contact management systems like Salesforce.com, Zoho. com and Maximizer.com. I also recommend a few other networking resources such as LinkedIn.com, CardScan.com and Plaxo.com. 

10. Journal. Straight from the man who taught me this incredibly valuable success principle, renowned business philosopher Jim Rohn: “If you’re serious about becoming a wealthy, powerful, sophisticated, healthy, infl uential, cultured and unique individual—keep a journal. When you listen to something valuable, write it down.” 

A collection of the greatest ideas, insights and education are chronicled in the journals I have kept over the last 15-plus years—one of my frequently referenced and most important resources. 

11. Electronic Bill Payment. Getting set up to have all your bills paid automatically is a huge time-and laborsaver. I cannot stress the importance of paying yourself first as fundamental to your wealth-building plan. 

12. Mentor/Coach. Those who seek excellence have a coach. Even Tiger Woods, arguably the best golfer ever, has a coach. 

My suggestion: Find someone whose life exemplifies what you want yours to be and ask for some coaching or mentorship. 

13. Mobile Device. A complete access to your communication tools is key for high-volume productivity when you are in work mode. 

There are many fantastic options. I use an iPhone. I like being able to have my cell phone and my audio and video listening library all in one device. Other options include the Palm® handheld TX, HP iPAQ or RIM® BlackBerry Curve™. 

14. Reliable Watch. Being on time is an important success discipline. All of us are busy. Leaving someone to wait is one of the most disrespectful things you can do—it will cost you valuable relationships. It’s just as easy to be on time as it is to be consistently late. Get a good watch and use it. 

15. Google Search/Google Desktop. When you think about the resources you use consistently throughout the day, an Internet search engine has to be one of the most frequent. 

Google Desktop does the same for everything on your computer—folders, files and e-mail. Find anything anywhere on your computer fast. Download it at desktop.google.com. 

16. Workout Gear. Exercise is essential to your plan. It doesn’t matter what you do, just do something that makes you sweat and gets your heart rate up for a sustained period of time. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Anywhere anytime, just strap on running shoes and head out the door. Don’t come back for 20-30 minutes a few times a week. 

17. Back-up Drive—External or Online. Nothing can wreck your world and bring your entire operation to a halt like having your computer hard drive crash, losing all your contacts, calendar, work history and important files. 

For external drives, PC Magazine recommends Western Digital, SimpleTech and Maxtor. There are also great automatic online back-up solutions like iDrive.com, Mozy.com, Carbonite.com, IBackup.com, Xdrive.com, SugarSync.com, or HPupline.com.
