Notes: Step one: don't decide what you want. If you do decide what you want, don't think about why you want it. And if you do decide why you want it, commit to believing you can't have it -- Step two: don't do things on purpose -- Step three: don't stop working for a living -- Step four: don't know what you value in life (and if you do, lose sight of it) -- Step five: don't spend any of your time in the future -- Step six: don't have any goals -- Step seven: if you do have goals, don't put them in writing, and if you do, don't think too big -- Step eight: don't plan your priorities -- Step nine: don't involve other people -- Step ten: don't have a mentor or be a mentor -- Step eleven: don't get advice from people you've never met or who are dead -- Step twelve: don't take action right now -- Step thirteen: don't get feedback on your actions -- Step fourteen: don't adjust -- Step fifteen: don't get even more feedback, don't be flexible-- (you get the idea) -- .
- Step sixteen: don't practice continuous improvement -- Step seventeen: don't wear a parachute -- Step eighteen: don't change your beliefs -- Step nineteen: don't stop having a deep fear of failure and of making a fool of yourself -- Step twenty: don't take personal responsibility for your life and results -- Step twenty-one: don't stop believing in luck -- Step twenty-two: don't expand your comfort zone -- Step twenty-three: don't use inside-out thinking -- Step twenty-four: don't put things in before you try to take things out -- Step twenty-five: don't control your moods -- Step twenty-six: don't transform your language -- Step twenty-seven: don't think about the first four minutes -- Step twenty-eight: don't talk and think about what you want -- Step twenty-nine: don't go to the movies -- Step thirty: don't stop being an unthinking dog -- Step thirty-one: don't ask, "How do you do that?" Don't act "as if." And don't be naïve -- .
- Step thirty-two: don't change the meaning of things -- Step thirty-three: don't stop thinking only about money, money, money -- Step thirty-four: don't have a good laugh -- Step thirty-five: don't be creative or innovative -- Step thirty-six: don't think of your own idea to go here -- Step thirty-seven: don't stop always taking "no" for an answer -- Step thirty-eight: don't be grateful -- Step thirty-nine: don't commit to lifelong learning -- Step forty: don't be a leader -- Step forty-one: don't learn to communicate -- Step forty-two: don't understand the secrets of great teams and great customer service -- Step forty-three: don't develop winners and winning relationships -- Step forty-four: don't step up. Don't do extraordinary things -- Step forty-four-and-a-half: don't stop doing everything by halves, that's if you do anything at all.
