Go-getter checklist

I’m always looking for a way to validate my instincts – make sure my gut isn’t sending me in the wrong direction. I found a great one from Jim Tracey in a recent article for Business Insider. The story is great but I was more impressed by a small component he hardly covered: the checklist. Here it is…

  • When opportunity arises seize it
  • No gods, only people, on earth (my favorite of the bunch)
  • Approach only if having something to offer
  • You don’t know if you don’t ask
  • Don’t interrupt
  • There’s always a way – move to plan B, C and D

The next time you’re faced with an opportunity run through the checklist – it’s already working for me.
