River of dreams: become a doer, not just a dreamer

I woke up this morning with the lyrics of Billy Joel’s song "River of Dreams" playing over and over in my head…

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I continued to sing the lyrics while in the office. At the same time, Eileen, our manager of administrative services, was thinking about Mike Dillard’s To Do List technique. Mike is an Internet marketing guru who has a great idea and we think is a perfect time to share it. Before he goes to bed at night he writes a to do list with five tasks that he wants to accomplish the next day in order of importance.

Now these are not goals, but tasks. While he sleeps at night his subconscious is working out the details on how he can accomplish the tasks on his list. The next morning he starts working on his list. Mike claims this simple low-tech technique has played a large part in the success of his business.

Why not implement this technique in your business and become a doer and not just a dreamer.
