Accomplished people have rules they live by. Tom Coughlin, former Coach of the New York Giants, was being interviewed about his book Earn the Right to Win: How Success in Any Field Starts with Superior Preparation. He shared four rules he lives by that set him up to achieve tremendous success. Try them on for size…
- Use time efficiently. Be prepared when unexpected opportunity hits.
- Be a stickler for punctuality — it shows you respect your time and the time of others as well.
- Pay attention to detail. Studying the skills of the competition will bring insight that can help you stay one step (or more) ahead and rack up the wins.
- Establish trust and honest communication.
Granted, living by these rules isn’t easy — as simple as they may be. But little that makes us a better, more successful person is easy.
