Doing Something Great

Keith over at To-Done wrote an interesting post about
doing something great.

I want to do Something Great. I’m crazy about helping people be all
they can be. I want to help people regain control over their to-do
lists, finances, and the rest of their lives. I want to help people
share their passion and knowledge through better teaching and
presentation skills.

Many of my friends also have great passions. Ranulf Goss wants to
launch the Philippine PC game development industry. He founded Slycesoft and regularly gives inspirational talks at universities to encourage students to get into game development. Maoi Arroyo wants to jumpstart the Philippine biotech industry. She founded Hybridigm Consulting and also teaches people about entrepreneurship. Gabriel Narciso wants to build the nation. He does free-lance productivity coaching and organizational development for non-profits.

Here are some of the I’ve learned from them and from many other people I admire:

  • Write down your goals and share them with as many people as you
    can.
    Constantly write down and review your goals. Talk about
    your goals with other people. As you share your goals, you’ll not
    only learn more about yourself but also gain the insights of others.
  • Surround yourself with people doing great things. Their
    passion will inspire you to work on your own goals, and you’ll be
    surprised at how helpful your network can be.

    said that one of the best things you can do is look for a
    mentor. You’ll learn a lot from mentors not only in your field but also elsewhere!
  • Don’t give up. You’ll hear a lot of nos and you’ll run into a
    lot of dead ends. Don’t give up! Take criticism into consideration,
    but keep on going. You can do it!
