5 ways to change your world – advice from billionaires

byqzbqtciaa8-bl-1

There is a great article in Venture Beat News titled How the tech elite teach Stanford students to start billion-dollar companies (in 11 quotes).  I didn’t get 1/4 of the way through it before I was brimming with ideas about how to apply it to motivation, weight loss, and exercise.

Start-ups are trying to change the world.  Some of them do.  It just makes sense to take advice from guys who have created billion-dollar companies from scratch, and then apply it to our lives.   Here is what they say –

One way to get started on stuff – The Puppy Close

Get Started

“Most of us are not suffering a lack of information, but a lack of application.” – Troy Styers on my Twitter timeline this morning

 

You know what I’m talking about, don’t you?

Let’s face the facts… you have all the information you need about making things better in your life, but you can’t seem to get started.

The conversation in your head sounds like this (I know bc I have had the same ones) –

I need to start getting up earlier
I need to start going to the gym
I need to start being more productive at work

There are 3 parts to every comeback – a spark of hope, a quick flame-up of success, and then the push.
