In a recent post, Marc and Angel identify the 12 secrets to success. First and foremost, successful people have SMART goals, which are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely.

A second trait that successful people have is that the take decisive and immediate action. Dreaming of success can't replace actually doing something to get there. they make logical, informed decisions rather tahn emotional decisions. They also avoid the trap of trying to make things perfect because that's one sure way to get discouraged.

Successful people focus on productivity. Busy-ness isn't productive, so successful people don't settle for the 'mental laziness' that is being busy. "The real world," Marc and Angel say, "rewards people who get things done."

And, yet, successful people also keep things simple and focus on making small, continuous improvements, measuring and tracking their progress as they go.

Wayne and Marie:

Many people confuse busyness with productivity.  Not the same.  And it is true that if you work out of your comfort zone you will be more successful.

Wise words...very important to be practicing one's periphery vision, and not looking down the prepared tunnel track.

I love the part about how you shouldn't have perfection in mind, otherwise you will end up disappointed and discouraged. I think so too. This is hard to master though.
