I read a leadership blurb by Jeff Haden in Inc. Magazine (8 Things Remarkably Successful People Do; November 2012) that really has stuck with me. It was about things successful business people do or don’t do. Here are three of my favorites: the first was: “They don’t create backup plans” because back up plans create an easy way out when times get tough. Second, “They start at the end.” That is – they decide where they want to end up and work backwards. Lastly, they “avoid crowds” i.e. conventional wisdom creates conventional results.
