Open one new door every day, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly your opportunities grow. Diversification is the key to everything from a successful investment portfolio to a successful team of co-workers, but too few of us apply this simple idea to our working lives, or to our search for fun. When was the last time you opened a new door to money, or to happiness?
Think about what could you accomplish if you learned to open one new door every day. You could change your life radically for the better, but the path to success would be so gentle that you wouldn’t even have to set aside any extra time, or setting any big plans in motion. One of the most difficult things about finding ways to make more money or have more fun is that it isn’t always feasible to try to achieve success in new goals on top of everything that you already have to do. Chances are, you have to do a lot. If you open one new door every day, you won’t have to struggle under more pressure, and you won’t have to deal with a whole crop of new tasks that are laying the foundation for your future success. Instead, you’ll just try one thing each day to make your life a little better. That’s a schedule anyone can keep.
The concept is basic. The more different kinds of revenue possibilities you’re pursuing, the greater the chance is that one of them will catch fire and start making you the kind of income that you want. The more different ways you’re trying to have fun, the greater the chance is that you’ll find a new source of joy or passion in your life. The implementation is as basic as the concept: just open one new door every day.
How do you open one new door every day? There are lots of ways to do it. Here are a few examples of how you can open a new door right now:
Open A New Door To Income:
*Visit an online job board and bookmark three jobs that are better than the work you have now.
*Sit in on a meeting in another department at work, and see if there’s anything you can do to make yourself valuable to that department as well as your own.
*Dash off an email or make a quick call to a past client who you enjoyed working with, to a customer who you know you served well, or to a co-worker who you fruitfully collaborated with. Let them know that the experience was positive for you, and ask them what projects are on their horizon. There just might be a place in that plan for you, especially now that your name is in the air.
Open A New Door To Fun:
*Go see a movie that you’ve never heard of, and know nothing about.
*Get back in touch with a friend who you haven’t seen in a few months. Make plans to get together for a cup of tea, or go for an early evening walk.
*Do a google search for your childhood nickname, and see where it takes you.
