‘That’s interesting’ – What do you do next?

You are reading and find yourself thinking ‘that’s interesting’.

Rather than just read on, seize the opportunity.

STOP

Your mind flagged this idea as interesting for a reason.

How could you apply this in your work or your life?

How could you use it in a current situation?

Convert the idea into an action.

Then do it.

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.” Winston Churchill.

Notice what truths you stumble on this week.

My best wishes, Paul
