Four Ways to Live Your List
1. Start small. You will never accomplish anything big in life until you start something small. Prioritize your list to find out which items you could accomplish first and without much money. Starting small helps you build the momentum to be intentional.
2. Be a wow person. A wow person is a big dreamer who escapes the normal tendencies to “how” our ideas, goals, and ambitions. Temporarily forget about the money and problems that might be in the way, and dream big.
3. Surround yourself with wow people. You are the average of the five people you spend the most time around. Intentionally put yourself around people who are willing to challenge you to dream big.
4. Be disciplined with money. Money is an issue when you try to Live Your List. However, you must be intentional to be disciplined with your money. Instead of focusing on making extra money, find ways to prioritize your spending.
