From one of my favorite websites comes this fantastic manifesto with 15 rules to accelerate your business. The following spoke the loudest to me:

  • #2 – To accelerate accountability, reward doers, not talkers.
  • #4 – To accelerate your talent pipeline, be a talent hound, not a position-filler.
  • #7 – To accelerate great ideas, say no.
  • #12 – To accelerate sales, be the customer.

Great reading material for the downtime during your day,

    Ask yourself how much actual information content is in this writing.

    From the first page of the “manifesto”:

    “My definition of “accelerate” is “to increase
    the rate of achieving desired outcomes in
    a sustainable manner.” The objective of every
    business should ultimately be to create a
    great business. This manifesto is a call to action
    to accelerate your business and your career. ”


    If you are looking for some motivation regarding #2, then watch the monologue referenced here:

    Yes, But What Have You *Done*?
