Some Monday quick thinking on priorities, success, and several other frequently touched upon topics on the Brainzooming blog:

Priorities – Don’t be reluctant to over-invest your time where it matters. Run away from even small time investments on the wrong things, though.

Dependability – It’s fine when someone is honest & says they don’t know how to do something. When they wait to tell you until two months into a project, it’s quite another matter.

Support – Be very careful of accepting the hand of someone who is sinking in quicksand.

Opportunity – When asked to share your intellectual capital for free because there is lots of opportunity with the audience, ask what percent of the audience bought from those who went before you.

Success – There are already enough naturally occurring barriers to accomplishing your goals. Don’t erect additional artificial barriers to add to them. – Mike Brown

    The Priorities tip is a big one for me. Sadly, you can’t do everything or help everyone. Thanks!

      It’s just really tough to always know what’s going to be the right and wrong place to invest time, Alex. In these days of “do this for free because there will be all kinds of opportunity,” some of them are legitimate opportunities, and a lot of them aren’t.

    Good stuff, as always! I’m a bit behind in my reading so late in commenting. The Priorities and Opportunity ones especially spoke to me. It took me a while to figure out how to spend my time in more of the “right” ways. As a solopreneur, it’s all about the strategy with time management. I heard it enough times that it finally sunk in. 🙂
