Things That Fascinate and Motivate

Things That Fascinate and Motivate

I have written in the past about Warren Buffet’s strategy of making a list of 25 goals and then circling the five most important goals from the list. The “Oracle” recommends you eliminate the other 20 completely. This is an excellent approach. I certainly am guilty of working on too many goals at one time. His strategy will force you to  focus on your most important goals and you will likely experience better results.  It certainly seems to have worked for him.

There is a somewhat similar strategy that I recently learned from Dan Sullivan of Strategic Coach. Dan is perhaps the number one business and entrepreneur coach around. Dan has developed a program that not only helps you focus on what is important to you (as he describes it, “things that fascinate and motivate you”), but goes beyond that by helping you eliminate what irritates you the most.   

Take a moment and think about that concept. Can you imagine eliminating things that irritate you and instead focus on things that fascinate and motivate you.  Imagine the fun you’d have. Imagine the satisfaction and joy of working you’d have if you could pull that off.

I think the combination of eliminating irritating things and focusing not necessarily on 5 important goals as Warren described, but rather on things that actually fascinate and motivate could be a breakthrough concept.

Take a listen and/or read the show notes of a recent podcast by Dan Sullivan and Joe Polish from 10X Talk. It’s useful and interesting.
