100 Ways to Succeed and Make Money

Posted by on Feb 8, 2008 in Business, Entrepreneurship, Leadership

Tom Peters is always interesting and unconventional. I found his 100 ways to succeed and make money and interesting read. It’s similar to Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” .Here are some of my favorites:

  • Number #3: Write thank you notes.
  • Number #4: Make the difficult call NOW!
  • Number #6: Make today count — legacy. Similar to my principle of making each moment count.
  • Number #14: Read (and act on) these 3 books. You’ll have to read the manifesto to find out.
  • Number #17: He/She who has the Best Story wins!
  • Number #23: Design means you.
  • Number #29: Get the story! – everyone is important and has a story.
  • Number #33: Out-read ’em.
  • Number #47: Just drill – drill more wells than the next guy.

This is from the first 50 found on ChangeThis.com. I’ll list my favorites from the rest next…Here are my favorites from the next 50:

  • Number #52: Work like a dog at your writing!
  • Number #59: Insanely great?
  • Number #66: Retirement Sucks! – Stay angry!, Change the world!, Never give up!, Never give up!, die trying! (also read, Amazing Grace. Wilberforce changed the world by abolishing slavery and kept on going…one of my heros)
  • Number #69: Do unto others… YES!
  • Number #78: Speak not ill of thine competitors.
  • Number #82: of Service. My number one!
  • Number#100: Purposefully practice listening. Yes!
