Newsletter archive - What do you need to let go of? by Nigel Risner:
As we enter the last month of the year, start deciding what you are going to stop doing in 2010 that didn't work in 2009.
We assume that what worked last year will be the best way forward next year. Now, of course, we all know we should be innovative, creative and original. We know that, but do we do it?
When Jack Welch was the head of General Electric, he insisted that half the company's profits come from products and services that were less than five years old. Why? Because he knew that yesterday's methods wonít fit tomorrow's world.
Take time - several hours, perhaps more - to carefully review the following questions:
1. What worked best last year? What surprised me, inspired me or taught me something new for my work or business?
2. What did not work, or is working less and less well? What was less profitable or less effective than I expected? What should I drop altogether in the new year?
3. What's new in my field? What are my colleagues doing that I should apply to my business?
I will be in The Middle East next weekend running a boot camp for speakers, SO WONT BE DOING A NEWSLETTER NEXT WEEK
Over the last three weeks Iíve been sharing how to focus on whatís important
This week is the hardest
What do you need to let go of?
For most people letting go of the past ,or even the thought of delegation is hard.
You must complete your past (and forgive) in order to create your future
The question is "why do you still wish to be right vs happy"
Argue for your limitations and sure enough they're yours.Ē
-- Richard Bach
"Most of the limitations you think you have are the ones you have decided on. They are often entirely self-imposed. You might think, 'I can't do this, I can't do that, I would never do that, my parents could never do that, I never played baseball, I never climbed a mountain, I never, never, never'... It's the old broken record in your head. Throw out that negative thinking right now! Learn to play a positive message in your head because it's all about attitude."
-- David Patchell-Evans
"We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible."
-- Vince Lombardi
"The greatest limitations you will ever face will be those you place on yourself."
-- Denis Waitley

A joke to kick off Christmas
Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.
'In honour of this holy season' Saint Peter said, 'You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'
The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. 'It represents a candle', he said.
'You may pass through the pearly gates' Saint Peter said.
The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'
Saint Peter said 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.
The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.
St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just what do those symbolize?'
The man replied, 'These are Carols.'
And So The Christmas Season Begins......
