It is a naked truth that every one needs a good life. Productivity is one way of assuring someone good life and thus the need to share on this very important area of life. It is said “The success combination is to do what you do better(improving quality of your output) and do more of what you do (Increase the quantity of your output).

Convinced it pays to do more and better, Therefore, you should concentrate on “HOW CAN I DO MORE”.

I have personally learnt from painful, expensive experience that the fellow who has plenty of time makes an ineffective work. On the other hand,  all successful, competent people I know are busy. Note this: “Big people monopolize the listening while small people monopolize the talking”. Where are you?


Top level leaders in all walks of life spend much time requesting advice than they do in giving it.

Before a top man makes a decision he asks, “How do you feel about it?,  What do you recommend?, What would you do under these circumstances?”,  How does this sound to you.

In reaching a creative decisions, the raw materials are the ideas and suggestion of others. Don’t of course, expect other people to give you ready-made solutions. Ideas of others help to spark your own ideas so your mind is more creative.

We learn nothing from telling. But there is no limit to what we can learn by asking and listening.

Use the what do-you-think-of-this suggestion? approach. Stimulation from others is excellent mind food.

Don’t let ideas escape, fence them in. There is no limit to self improvement. For thinking regulates actions. How you think determine how you act. How you act in turn determines how others react to you

To gain the respect of others, you must first think you deserve respect.

Remember your appearance “talks”. Be sure it says positive things about you.

Never leave home without feeling certain you look like kind of person you don’t want to be. The most advertising ever appearing in print is the “dress right”. You can usually spot a wrong kid just by the way he looks. Sure it’s unfair, but it’s a fact.

How you look on the outside affects how you think and feel on the inside. You appearance talks to you; but it also talks to others. Respect your appearance in training programs. Appearance is important.

Pay twice as much and buy half as many. Quality is far more important than quantity. Isn’t it obvious why people stay at one level all their lives? Their thinking alone keeps them there.

Consider just one characteristic of successful people: ENTHUSIASM.

Practice uplifting self-praise. Don’t practice belittling self-punishment. Always do a first class job.

Now I realize that I’ve got what it takes to win and I’m winning. And I’m always going to win.

But please – don’t accept the judgement of average people. You are not average.


  1. Look important, it helps you think important.
  2. Think your work is important.
  3. Remind yourself at every opportunity that you’re a first-class person.
  4. In all of life’s situations, ask yourself, “Is this the way an important person thinks? Then obey the answer.

It is expected once you adjust your self to resemble to the characteristics of successful people and determine to produce more and better; surely your life will not look the same.
