Can the
50 Life Success Secrets
of an
Anonymous Thinker
help you too?

So there I was doing my daily search for life success secrets whilst I drank my first coffee.

Aaah.. that first coffee..! It's a ritual.

My old ritual had me drinking coffee first thing whilst checking emails. Then seeing what was happening on Facebook and Twitter.

Eventually, it became apparent that my ritual was so much easier than actually doing some useful work. Things had to change!

Have you ever been there?

Some things don't change though.

Like... I still don't get started straight away.

If I was a car I would be a fairly dated model with a manual choke.
I don't do full revs as soon as I'm switched on.
I take a few moments to.. warm up.
I need time to.. demist!

That's one of my life success secrets!

So now, I do my web-searches and forum lurking first thing. It means I'm doing necessary work for my day without the distraction of some of the more irrelevant dross of social sites.

The ideas sink in as the coffee takes effect (another of my life success secrets).

That's when I found this posting.

It's just a little too.. well.. remarkable to leave it without spreading it about a little.

Here it is:

50 Life Success Secrets

The Afterword...

Good, huh?

Wouldn't it be, not just nice, but really helpful if fifty years from now, or a hundred years from now, one of your children, grandchildren, great-great grandchildren came across your list of life success secrets?

Wouldn't it maybe help them in their own life as well as help them understand your life?
