Find A Topic To Teach Others

Last week I asked you a generic question “what do you spend money on?”. This time I want you to think about “what hobbies do you spend money on?”. It looks like the answer to this question uncovers areas where you’re weak, where you need to spend money on to further improve.
No, it uncovers topics you’re so passionate about that you’re willing to spend money on it. Additionally, these are topics you know more about than 99% of people out there. Teach these things to others!

Body Language Hacks

Last month I recomended Vanessa van Edwards’ “Captivate”, a fantastic book about body language. If you don’t have time to read the whole book just watch this 8 minute video: You’ll learn lots about body language hacks, the secrets of popular TED talks, how to start conversations with strangers and the huge power of eye contact (you’ll be surprised!).

Solve Hard Problems

Trying to solve a hard problem? Plan in reverse. Instead of planning steps from now to a difficult goal, plan backward from success. It makes the plan clearer and more motivating, and makes you more likely to achieve it.
