The Palm Beach Post reported today on a Staples, Inc. survey that say’s business owners continue solving problems while dreaming. Of course this has long been a mental toughness secret of the world class. It’s another reason the gap between the middle class and world class continues to grow. While the masses will be striving for balance in 2008, champions will continue to turn in extraordinary efforts to make their dreams a reality. The real critical thinking question is; do you want your dream badly enough to think about it while you’re sleeping? Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one!

  1. Thanks a lot for sharing this with all of us you actually know what you are talking about! Bookmarked. Kindly also visit my site =). We could have a link exchange contract between us!

  2. I can’t say that I work in my dreams as in being aware of them every night. BUT I use falling asleep time as a time to relax through muscle flexing and releasing while reciting affirmations about my business.

    Then, six mornings a week, I hike two hours with a forty-five minute Italian roast coffee break after the first hour and a half to read the Wall Street Journal (or Wired) at a local contemporary indie coffee house on a university campus (which also gives my business partner, best friend and wife of thirty-eight years a peaceful morning without my nonstop talking) ending up on a hill over looking Kalamazoo, Michigan where I’ve got a gal!

    BUT my mental hike contains a combination of life/business affirmations, reviewing plans for the day, analyzing past decisions and outcomes, and stretches of mental quiet – that’s a struggle – to experience as much nature as I can without interpretation.

    So by the time I return home I’m ready for conference calls, emails and whatever other business of the day I want to do. Essentually, I am at work 24/7 very much the way a writer escapes his or her passion nor would I want to escape it.

    Be that child in the playground of life.
