(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


None of us can know all we need to know to have the life we want — it’s too complicated today and there’s not enough time to learn it all.

To have the life you want create a strong network of people who are experts in areas you are not. Then call on this network as needed. That way, you concentrate on doing the things you’re here to do and at which you are good and let your network do the rest.

How do you build a network? First, make a list of 50 professions; your list will be different from someone else’s list because your activities and strengths are different. Next, write down at least one name of someone you know and can call on for each of the 50 professions. Finally, note which professions in your list do not have a name and start contacting people who can help you create these new network relationships.

The result? With a strong network your life will get easier, issues will get handled quicker, distractions will be minimized, and you will enjoy doing what your life is about.
