Message from my mentor on strategic thinking for your business success

If you want to think differently from others so that you can achieve your dream, then heed the following advice.

1. GIVE YOURSELF TIME TO THINK

Most people keep themselves much too busy. They confuse activity with accomplishment. If you want to perform well, you need to think well. You can’t do that if you never set aside time just for thinking.

2. FIND A PLACE TO BE CREATIVE

I believe that a person who possesses mental discipline can think anywhere. However, I also know that some environments are particularly conducive to creative thinking. I have a certain chair in my office that is my favorite place to think. Figure out what works for you.

3. FORCE YOURSELF TO THINK

If thinking were easy, everyone would be good at it—and everyone would be successful. The truth is that thinking can be hard work. That’s why you need to make it a discipline of your life. Give yourself a goal to think for a certain amount of time everyday.

4. SEE PROBLEMS AS OPPORTUNITIES

People who achieve their dreams don’t take no for an answer. They are undeterred by obstacles. And they see problems as opportunities. That, in a nutshell, is the essence of entrepreneurship: seeing opportunities in problems. Learn to think that way and you have unlimited resources for success.

5. CHALLENGE ASSUMPTIONS

One of the most insurmountable obstacles to successful thinking is the phrase, “But we’ve always done it this way”. It was Robert Kriegel who said, “Sacred cows make the best burgers.” You can’t buy into the same assumptions as everyone else and think differently as successful people do. Don’t take anything for granted.

6. EXPLORE EVERY OPTION

Unsuccessful people think there is one right answer to any problem. Successful people understand there are sometimes dozens. The trick is to find as many as possible so you can use the best one for that given moment.

7. RECRUIT OTHER GOOD THINKERS TO HELP YOU

Nobody ever achieved a big dream alone. Successful people know that they are not big enough, smart enough, or strong enough to do everything themselves. They get help. If you want to succeed, work with others.
