I read an article yesterday that reminded me of the 7 key time wasters that Brian Tracy has identified:
I am spending a lot of time communicating with Brian Tracy International following the creation of the iLearning Global training platform and generally strengthening my relationship.
These are exciting times and i used to have permission to publish Brian's articles on this business coaching blog but they didn't always fit in with the direction I wanted to move but they always had good advice in them.
So I have found the solution.
I have reconfirmed my permission to publish and I have created a specialist Brian Tracy blog.
I have just been listening to a call about the launch of iLearning Global, a new way of personal business development put together by Brian Tracy, Bill Bartmann and a few others which is attracting the cream of trainers, consultants and speakers.
It is a very interesting idea and similar to how I saw DT Alpha from Stephen Pierce working out. Unfortunately that never moved forward beyond the promise although Stephen's DT Alpha blog is excellent.
The iLearning Global Deal
This morning I have been following Brian Tracy's advice by "eating that frog" this morning.
The idea is that if you have a frog to eat, it's better to get it over and done with. You certainly don't want to be sitting there looking at it all day.
I haven't really eaten a frog of course but what I have done is tackled a few jobs that I have been putting off, and off because I didn't want to do them.
In my series of blogs on common mistakes made by entrepreneurs, time management has been a recurring theme so it seemed a good idea to introduce you to one of my favourite short time management programs - Brian Tracy and his "21 Great Ways To Manage Your Time and Double Your Productivity".
One of the biggest problems when I talk to entrepreneurs about developing their business is the concern that they don't have time to do what they already do, let alone find the time to do some new activities.
Brian Tracy is giving away for free his audio recording program, 21 Success Secrets of Self Made Millionaires and I thought that I should listen to my copy again and write a review (if you just want to jump straight to the free offer see Self Made Millionaires. (affiliate link))
The 21 Success Secrets of Self Made Millionaires is a 72 minute audio CD and is part of a series of 21 Success Secret audios (I reviewed the 21 Success Secrets of High Performance Businesses some months ago).
A quick reminder that the FREE Ideas to Income teleseminar on March 4th, 2008 is Brian Tracy explaining why personal development and business training are the keys to reaching your full potential.
I have reviewed this book through a business summary service and it is clear that the summariser has the same issue with Brian Tracy as I do.
With the permission of Brian Tracy International, I am delighted to feature another of Brian's articles on this blog.
Start From Nothing and Become Financially Independent
More than eighty percent of self-made millionaires in America began with nothing or in many cases, less than nothing. I can certainly relate to that because when I was growing up and right into my early 30s, I never had any extra money with which to start a fortune. It seemed to me that there was always enough, if not more than enough bills, to absorb every penny I earned. I was always in debt.
I am delighted to bring you another posting from Brian Tracy, thanks to the kind permission of Brian Tracy International.
Never Worry About Money Again
What is the purpose of a business?
Every time I ask this question during a business seminar, the immediate answer that I get back is, "To make a profit."
The Real Purpose of A Business
But this answer is wrong.
Brian Tracy has an excellent 21 Secrets to Success series and I have eight of the CDs. I have decided to start with"21 Ways To Build A High Profit Business."
What Causes High Profits?
Brian Tracy asks a simple question that you may have been asking yourself:
"Why is it that some businesses are much more profitable than others in the same industry?"
I am delighted to tell you that I have been given permission by Brian Tracy International to bring you Brian's newsletters and post them on this blog.

The Law of Abundance - there is ample money for everyone who knows how to acquire it and keep it. We live in an abundant universe in which there is sufficient money for all who really want it and are willing to obey the laws governing its acquisition.
You Can Have All You Want
I am certain that you have heard of Brian Tracy even if you haven't yet had a chance to read or listen to much of his material.
Brian is one of the business development superstars that I feature on this blog and his scope is even wider than mine.
I was listening to a Brian Tracy CD and he talked about an extremely interesting and effective technique to use if you are struggling to make a difficult decision or you face a dilemma.
It's called zero based thinking.
So next time you have a difficult decision, ask yourself this one question:
Book Review 4 Stars
Brian Tracy has written the book "Be A Sales Superstar: 21 Great Ways to Sell More, Faster, Easier in Tough Markets".
Brian Tracy believes that most salespeople have never been professionally trained and that 95% can increase their sales (benefiting themselves and their employees) through additional knowledge and skill.
