You 2.0

By Robin Sharma
#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title

Become your best self

Drinking coffee. Trip hop music’s playing. A harsh Winter’s making way for a bright Spring.

I sit in my dream room with a forest around me.

And I think…

I think of the people I’ve met recently. At events, in airports, on chairlifts. In the streets.

Good people. Great intentions. But so many sharing that they long for so much more….

…to feel more fully alive. To know what it truly means to feel inspired. To totally know their gifts, talents and potential. And to discover the bravery to let it all see the light of day.

You’re smart and talented and cool…

so…

…you know that potential unexpressed turns to pain.

…you know that you have genius within you and it needs to come out for you to live truly.

…you know that the seductions of success that society sells you are meaningless at the end.

…you know that what this game’s really about is using each day as a platform to express your greatness.

…you know that the clock is ticking and that mastery postponed never gets done.

…you know that you just can’t afford to wait another day to become the person you’ve always dreamed of being.

And so I respectfully suggest that you…

…make your start today (every master was once an amateur you know).

…have the guts to go to your edges (because as you meet your limits, your limits will expand).

…and remember that the easiest thing is rarely the best thing.

Ok–to be practical, here are 3 fresh habits to install:

Habit #1: The 90/90/1 Rule

For the next 90 days, devote the first 90 minutes of your work day to the one best opportunity in your life. Nothing else. Zero distractions. Just get that project done. Period.

Habit #2: The 30 Minute Inspiration Pocket

Schedule 30 minutes every day for the next week to get re-inspired. Please remember that you need to get your mindset right before you can achieve massive results in your outer world. All masters make the time to fuel their well of inspiration. Daily. Go to art galleries, read fascinating autobiographies and drink coffee with giants. Walk in the woods, listen to awesome music and eat beautiful food.

Habit #3: Write Your Ideal Days

This one’s cool. Every morning–while the rest of the world sleeps–write out the way your day will look if it were to unfold at perfection. Doing this will train your brain to look for opportunities to make your daily vision happen. Your mental focus muscles will grow stronger. And since your days are your life in miniature, this new habit is a life-transformer.

Hope this sincere burst of words that I needed to share with you on this fine morning inspires, encourages, supports and serves…

And I express my deep and real gratitude to you for believing in me, following my work and being a model of possibility out in this world we belong to.

If my message speaks to you and you are ready to kickstart your life so you raise it to a completely new level of mastery, prosperity, happiness and abundance, the announcement below will be your game-changer…

10 Simple Rules to Be Nice

By Robin Sharma
#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title

Read, study and practice the 10 simple rules for being nice

I was skiing this past week. Gorgeous snow. Lots of sun. Precious moments.

Trying to refuel after the big tour…

But one morning I witnessed something that broke my heart…

…a woman, who was clearly a beginner, was having trouble getting onto the chairlift. She was with her son and just couldn’t get the hang of it.

…she looked embarrassed…and a little beaten.

There were a group of men behind me. Mature people, I thought. Seasoned skiers, for sure.

And they started ridiculing her! Out loud. Calling her an amateur. Making fun of her attire. Saying things like “hey, take your time–we have nothing else to do” and “nice backpack you have on there.”

It was incredible. To see such rudeness. Such insensitivity. Such uncompassion for this woman who needed help (and was being helped by the lift guards…known as “lifties” to those of us who adore skiing).

I just couldn’t believe how these humans operated. Bad manners. Zero decency. Pure mean.

This scene has stayed with me for two days.

It just has me thinking about the good and not so great in the world right now. And it fired me up to write the following 10 Simple Rules for Being Nice….

Please read them, study them and–above all else–practice them…

Rule #1: Think about others before you think about yourself.

Rule #2: Say “please”.

Rule #3: Say “thank you”.

Rule #4: Smile.

Rule #5: Say “sorry” when you need to say “sorry”.

Rule #6: Turn off your phone when you eat with your family.

Rule #7: Be on time. No, be early.

Rule #8: Radiate optimism and make people feel good.

Rule #9: Keep your promises.

Rule #10: Be humble.

Yes–I agree these are simple rules. But simplicity contains great power and beauty.

Please practice these rules (I will too), discuss them with your team and share them with your family. Our world will definitely rise once you do.

Big Announcement: T48T2014 doors are now open!

The 7 Beautiful Things Excellent Leaders Do

By Robin Sharma
#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title

Learn to lead

I’m up here in the mountains with my loved ones post-tour. Refueling. Reviewing 2014 year-to-date results. And doing some early Spring skiing.

Been thinking so much about what my team and I need to take the Lead Without a Title movement that’s exploding around the world to the next level of virality.

So more people show leadership. So many more unleash their brilliance on an unsuspecting marketplace. And so the world has more Picassos walking within it.

Which also got me thinking about the 7 things excellent leaders do.

Let’s run through them together…

#1. Excellent Leaders Focus on The Vital Few

Too many amongst us fill our lives with more complexity–missing out on the key fact that genius resides in the realm of simplicity.

Pick that one thing you can be BIW (Best in World) at and then have the discipline to say no to everything else. Picasso didn’t practice the piano. And Beckham didn’t study bookkeeping.

Seriously–for the next 90 days, clear the decks and focus on that one project or opportunity that will be the game changer.

And do the same for your personal life. Simplify. Become pristinely focused on just the few, most important, things.

#2. Excellent Leaders are Masters of Their Crafts

Oh–what an awesome opportunity. Most businesses and most business people operate at average.

Walk into their restaurant and no one smiles, the room’s a mess, the food is mediocre, the details are undone and there’s zero element of utter surprise.

Hop onto most airplanes. Or observe most retailers. All average. No wow. Underwhelming passion. Bankrupt innovation. Just a bunch of companies copying everyone else and playing not to lose versus aiming to win.

This leaves a gorgeous chance for you and your business to stand for Mastery. To know more about what you do than anyone who has ever done what you do. To dazzle by acumen and skill. To leave us–as your customers–with tears in our eyes by the exceptionalism that you model.

Please remember: a job’s only a job when seen as a job. See your job as your craft. And your chance to leave your mark on the world.

#3. Excellent Leaders Cherish Time

Ordinary people watch time. Exceptional people leverage time…to create epic results, financial fortunes and global impact.

When I think of the celebrity CEOS, famed billionaires and superstar entrepreneurs I’ve served as the private advisor to, I think of people who don’t waste time gossiping about people, who would never think of waiting in line for an hour to get into a restaurant and who have a ferocious respect for the value of every passing moment.

These excellent leaders decide with speed, delegate everything but what they do best and have gigantic execution intelligence.

Please remember…time is such a special asset. Use it to fuel your dreams, realize your ideals and elevate society for the generations who follow.

#4. Excellent Leaders Forge Human Connections

The bigger the dream, the more key the team.

Swift and superb companies understand that a brilliant vision without an effective team is a delusion.

Make the time to develop your teammates. Invest in growing a high-performance team. And dedicate yourself to building a culture within your organization where people can bring their best selves into the office every morning.

#5. Excellent Leaders Have Optimization Mindsets

When Microsoft released their first version of MS-DOS, it was filled with over 300 bugs. But they just kept iterating it until the product got better and better.

When Cirque du Soleil first launched, the big tent collapsed at a press conference. But they just kept making things better. Consistently. Daily.

Here’s my point: what makes a great company, career or personal life isn’t some great win. Nope. What makes outright greatness are those small steady supertiny wins when done each day with focus and resolve lead to world-class over time.

So make innovation, iteration and optimization your obsession. Over the long run, you’ll arrive at a place where your firm is the dominant player in your industry. And where your peers revere you as a legend.

#6. Excellent Leaders Don’t Surrender

The #1 factor that determines success isn’t intelligence or creativity. It’s “grit”–that ability to stay with your goal longer than the world thinks is reasonable to stay with your goal.

It’s stunning–and sad–how quickly ordinary performers give up on an objective on the first sign of failure.

Excellent leaders are different. They get knocked down or laughed at or disappointed. And they stay in the game. They persist. They keep the faith. They rise even higher.

And so, in the end, they win.

#7. Excellent Leaders Have Impressive Habits

Study anyone who is at the top of her game. And guess what you’ll see? An individual who has installed strikingly strong habits of success.

These often include:

–an early morning workout

–a meticulous daily plan

–an hour a day for learning

–attending a conference every 90 days

–consume smaller amounts of food

–a weekly period of renewal and reflection

–scheduled family dates and dinners

–nature walks

–associating with positive, A-performers

–little or no TV

So make Leadership your way of being. You know leadership has less to do with a title and more to do with your mindset, performance and dedication to making a difference.

My team and I will help your company become a “victim-free company” where everyone shows leadership and excellence in all they do.

4 “Quiet” Lessons I’ve Learned On This Tour

By Robin Sharma
#1 bestselling author of The Leader Who Had No Title

Lessons from the road

Hope you’re in superb spirits, nailing your 2014 vision and inspiring everyone around you to reach for world-class.

I’m still out on this tour–spreading the Lead Without a Title message that’s grown into a movement. And doing my utmost to be of service.

I’ve learned a lot on this tour. The purity of the road births deep thoughtfulness and on each of the stops so far (Zurich, Zagreb, Nairobi, Seychelles and Bahrain), I’ve discovered new insights.

Please allow me to share 4 of the finest of them with you since I feel you’re with me on this ride. Most of them are “quiet”–meaning–not so well known…

  1. The nature of the goals you set is massively important. Goals based on looking better than others deliver less motivation and persistence than goals based on trying to improve your performance. So set “mastery goals” versus “ego goals”.

  2. Optimism isn’t some soft concept for weak people. Nope. It’s an absolutely essential element for anyone in hot pursuit of elite performance and professional mastery. Here’s my point: we often tell ourselves we’ll cultivate optimism once we become successful. But recent reasearch confirms that developing optimism leads to success….

    …optimists have been shown to have greater mental focus, more energy, better creativity and more stamina when things get hard.

  3. The best way to get more done is to do a lot less. I know I’ve been on this learned minimalism kick for the past few years, but I’m getting it at a whole new level.

    On this trip, I noticed a woman carrying a handbag made by a famed watchmaker. This firm makes genius-level watches. But highly ugly handbags. They seem to have forgotten what they do best. And are now in the process of destroying their brand and alienating their fans.

    So to get more done, say no to most of the fantastic opportunities that are presented to you but are not a part of your sweetspot. Build your business life and your personal world around just a few things. And have the discipline to say a diplomatic no to everything else. Mastery comes via a monomaniacal focus on simplicity versus an addiction to complexity.

  4. Your belief about your potential determines whether you’ll express your potential…

    …Psychologists are writing about “implicit theories” these days. Basically, these are the unconscious beliefs we have about our talents, abilities and place in the world.

    They come from every possible influence: our parents, our teachers, our friends, television, every book we’ve read and every place we’ve been. They all come together–subconsciously–to form our personal story. Cool, yes?

    And here’s the powerful idea: we always behave in a way consistent with our self-identity. What we think about our potential determines whether we take steps to fully express it or whether we leave it lying on the table of unfulfilled promise.

So there you go. Four ideas to practice and live.

100 thanks to everyone who showed up at the events, stopped me in airports and approached me on the streets. I am humbled to be helpful and am so grateful my work is valuable to you.

As for everyone asking me whether I’ve decided to do The 48 Hour Transformation–my 2 day personal mastery event–again this year, the answer is yes. It’ll be held on June 7 + 8 in Toronto, Canada. Can’t wait to see the Alumni from last year and all the new faces from across the world.

Be great,
