Success Leaves Tracks – STILL a great concept
I was reading some of my old blog posts over the weekend and I came across this one… one of my favorites. It’s so important to remember that you should always learn from the experts – you will never live long enough to learn everything yourself.
Here’s the post…
When I began searching for the secrets of success many years ago, I discovered an interesting principle: success leaves tracks.
A wise man who had studied success for more than 50 years concluded that the greatest success principle of all was, “learn from the experts.”
Learn From the Experts
If you want to be a big success in any area, find out what other successful people in that area are doing, and do the same things, until you get the same results. When I studied the interviews, speeches, biographies and autobiographies of successful men and women, I found that they all had one quality in common. They were all described as being “extremely well organized.” They used their time very, very well. They were highly productive and they got vastly more done in the same period of time than the average person.
Be Both Effective and Efficient
High performing men and women were both effective and efficient. They did the right things, and they did them in the right way. They were constantly looking for ways to improve the quality and quantity of their output. As a result, their contribution to their organizations was vastly higher and therefore much better paid, than the contributions of the average person.
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action:
First, develop a study plan today to learn from the experts in your field. This can save you years of hard work.
Second, decide what is the most important thing to do, and then decide how to do it.

You need a flight plan to succeed. And having a plan isn’t enough. Just like an airplane pilot you must make course corrections to arrive at your destination — your goals.
