Stagnant Ponds (and minds) stink
- not flowing or moving
- foul from lack of movement: said of water, etc.
- not active, alert, etc.; sluggish: a stagnant mind
They pollute themselves such that no living thing (person) wants to come anywhere near . . . from sheer repulsion.
What they need is Aeration and a steady flow of new IN and old OUT.
We all have our own rhythm in and out of stagnation. Mine seems to be a 3 year frequency. Your may differ, but I bet a millions bucks you have this rhythm.
The art of living a life of high achievement relies on a keen personal awareness of one’s own periods of stagnation . . . The sooner we detect the stench, the faster we can nip it in the bud.
How do we snap out of it?
Better yet, how do we proactively nip it before it shows it’s toxicity?
This requires a habit of reinventing yourself consistently and persistently over time.
Your primary instrument for this reinventing is a passionate commitment to learning.
READ incessantly – Books, Magazines, Blogs, Industry Publications, Local Papers.
Attend Seminars, Classes, Conferences, Mastermind Sessions – Be a sponge for new ideas
Hang out with people smarter than you!
Don’t “settle” for anything less . . .
and be the Leader we all know you are.
I’m your biggest fan.
