2. Underline or highlight key points that deliver a message that hits the mark with your specific interest or needs. This technique will help you to filter the messages and narrow your focus to specific useful ideas.
3. Once completed, put the book away for at least a week and then go back over the underlined items and place an * or other symbol next to the top ideas for future follow up.
4. Review all the * items and then create a list of follow up actions you will take to execute on these ideas. Capturing these valuable ideas without a follow up action plan is worthless.
5. Insert these new, actionable ideas in your calendar. Make sure to block out sufficient time to complete these priorities.
Please feel free to share with me the book or books that have made the biggest difference in your professional or personal life and what you did to act upon the ideas provide by the author. I can be contacted via email or through the Barry Demp website.
