What’s the Secret to Your Success?

Michael Hyatt, the CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, has given the most important aspect to be successful. From all, he chose responsiveness for his number one attribute to be successful:

… My basic rule is this: respond immediately unless there is a good reason to wait. Obviously, this isn’t always possible, especially since I spend so much time in meetings. Nevertheless, I rarely let messages sit longer than a day. Twenty-four hours is the outside edge. If you can’t respond now, then at least acknowledge that you have received the message: “I received your message. I don’t have time to give it the attention it deserves right now, but you can expect to hear from me before the end of the day tomorrow.”…

Recently I have been dragging my time with email responses because of the increase of meetings and phone calls. This is a great reminder for me to make more attentions on this.
