On being DELIBERATE Successful people deliberately devote their attention to 10 key aspects of their professional and personal lives. Using the word 'deliberate' as an acronym along with the colour-coded, compass-like model, you too can learn to apply the secrets of success in your everyday life… Decide: Be black and white about what's important to you. Eliminate: Stop the things in your life that don't really matter. Language: Your internal voice creates you — make it soothing like the sound of the aqua ocean. Information: The colour of newsprint reminds us to be discerning in an information-soaked world. Beliefs: We believe that the sky is blue when, in fact, it's mostly pink. Where else are we mistaken? Energy: Oranges are a source of energy and vitality. How many such sources do you have in your life? Responsibility: When you happily accept complete responsibility for your life you see things in a new way. Action: Go and take action in ways that bring out the best in you. Time: Purple is the colour of royalty. Be the king or queen of your most important resource — time. Evaluate: Regularly get your blue pen out and formally review how you're going.
