Eight Secrets of Success

“Richard St. John’s: Eight Secrets of Success”

In this TED Talk, Richard St. John, a marketer and a success analyst, discusses his research on the “Eight Secrets of Success”. After seven years of research and conducting over 500 interviews with successful people in different fields, St. John answers the common yet difficult question “What leads to success?”

The first successful trait he discusses is “Passion”; it is to be driven by what you do. Next described was the obvious “Work”; nothing comes easy he explains how everything is “hard work”. This trait involves a lot of practice and it is to be “Good”. In order to be good at something you need to have “Focus”; to concentrate on one aspect. The next is to “Push” it is important to always push yourself. Now you need to “Serve” St. John explains how you need to serve yourself and others. One key trait is “Ideas!” it is simple you need to always have a concept and a plan, as it is very important to think through the processes. The last trait discussed is to “Persist” this one hit me hard as there are many things in life that can interrupt your success that involves persistence to succeed.

Richard St. John gives us “Eight successful traits” that successful people have in common. This knowledge has the power to help us lead and build a successful life for ourselves and eight concepts that we can use in any situation whether it is to pass a course or accomplish any goal you may have.

Americans’ concerns about environmental problems have dropped in recent years, coincident with their drop in support for various environmental policies and the higher priority they assign to economic growth than to environmental protection.

There are two likely explanations for the declining concern. First, Americans are a bit more positive now than they have been in the past about the quality of the environment. Second, the economic downturn has forced Americans to focus more on bread-and-butter economic issues than quality-of-life issues. It may be no coincidence that environmental concern was highest in 2000, when the U.S. was enjoying one of the strongest economies in recent memory, and that environmental concern has reached new lows recently, after the worst financial downturn in the last 25 years.”

More pallet projects
Do you remember when I asked — here on Tumblr and on the Unconsumption Facebook page — about your interest in seeing other items made from repurposed pallets? The replies were overwhelmingly positive. So my Unconsumption colleagues and I continue to be on the lookout for pallet projects we haven’t yet covered, such as this garden installation featured on French architect Patrick Nadeau’s Web site. Interesting use of pallets, isn’t it?
