The “Read-Reflect-Act” action plan as become a normal process when I get in touch with knew positive knowledge or when I review some notes I took while reading and learning.
1.Reading an hour everyday is the habit of any person you see succeeding or working towards success.
Whether it’s a church leader, company CEO or a Non for Profit Leader, they all have the same daily reading habit to acquire the best possible knowledge that will help them reach their goals.
2.Reflecting on the information you go through in a book boost your memory capacities and increase your ability to innovate and create new values in your life, job, work or business.
People who use their brain most often while learning become smarter with time and live longer than passive learners who get around valuable information without interest.
3.Action is the gap between an excellent Reader-Thinker and an Achiever who applied what he learned while reading and reflecting.
In addition to reading, a complementary action that I also take learn is to I listen to YouTube training for motivation from other successful model in leadership like TD Jakes, Brian Tracy and Myles Monroe.
Sometimes I have to go through the same content many times to have more clarity to understand the action I have to take to improve certain area of my life. I discovered that the more the knowledge is clear, the better I could act with 100% outcome.
So as you go through these powerful declaration today, make sure to apply the R-R-A process to enjoy the benefit of these ideas.
