There is a meme going around called the Simply Successful Secrets Meme with the following rules:
Compose a new blog post listing the top 5 to 10 things that you do almost every day that help you to be successful. They can be anything at all, but they have to be things that you do at least 4 or 5 times every week. Anything less than that may be a hobby that helps you out, but we are after the real day in and day out habits that help you to be successful.
Chris Garrett recently answered this meme, and pretty much answered it how I would have. Here is a snippet of what he said:
2. Blog – When I say â€œblogâ€ I mean everything involved in blogging. Blogging is both a job and a joy for me. I read my RSS, I post, I answer comments, I write new ones on others’ blogs. Far too many bloggers think it is just about writing, how wrong they are. The best bloggers know the truth.
5. Switch Off – This is soooo important but something I don’t manage to always do. In fact I get into trouble with my wife for not doing this most days. It’s a must though. Do something that relaxes your brain, just have some mindless zero-thought time. My solution is to schedule TV programs that I really enjoy. I watch Battlestar Galactica, Heroes, Life on Mars, My Name Is Earl, Ice Hockey, Mythbusters â€¦ all stuff that takes little thought and takes me out of my day to day concerns.
A very interesting meme going around, and I can’t wait to see more responses from people I know and respect online.
