A young entrepreneurs strategy for applying Adam Rifkin's strategy of 1-3 introductions per day.

Robyn's article has a strong start:

“Eat your own dog food” is, of course, wise advice for any entrepreneur — for anyone selling anything. But what if the eating is trickier than occasionally closing your eyes, pinching your nose and swallowing quickly. What if you have to build a habit too?

I started wondering about this puzzle, finding Pavlov’s proverbial bell, after reading an article on how Adam Rifkin, the world’s top relationship builder, makes introductions.

Adam’s principle 1: Make introductions every day.

“An introduction is the most powerful daily action you can take to build [a network]. In just a few minutes, you can have a dramatic impact on the lives of two people and generate a large amount of goodwill for yourself and the overall community you’re building.”

Robyn says that committing to this practice every day has made her more productive AND happier.


Definitely worth a read:

I had not heard of these...

Peter Bregman’s 18 Minute Plan, which includes grouping all your tasks into five goal areas that really matter.Charles Duhigg’s wonderful book, The Power of Habit. I will have to look for them.

Charles Duhigg's book is A+++!

I had the pleasure of mentoring Robyn when she was at the Unreasonable Institute.  Great entrepreneur.
