Many people spend whole of their lives searching for that elusive secret to their own success. Often so- called 'secret' is sitting right under their very nose.
Let's face it, unless you're naturally gifted, making a success of anything involves a whole lot of hard work. A lot of time, work we're faced with is often boring and monotonous. Wouldn't it be great if it were fun? Ding, dong! Are lights starting to flash, and bells starting to sound inside your head yet?
I'm tempted to carry on rambling at this stage, but I know your just itching to find out what a GOOBI is. Am I right?
Well I'll put you out of your misery right now! GOOBI is simply a mnemonic for Get Out Of Bed Inducer. It's that thing that gets you out of bed in morning and puts a spring in your step. It's also been described elsewhere, as your "Friday night essence". Think about it, what would you happily spend Friday night working on instead of dining with friends or watching a movie?
I was reminded of GOOBI concept recently, whilst watching a film. The title of film escapes me, which is probably best because it was rubbish. If I was to tell you title you'd only go watch it, and then you'd be saying why did he mention that film it was rubbish.
Anyway, at one point in film, leading character made a statement that struck a chord with me. He said "The secret to success is to find something you love doing, and do it for rest of your life!" Of course, he was talking about finding your GOOBI.
So here comes hard part. To find your GOOBI you have to start thinking for yourself. I know that bit's going to come as a shock to some of you, as a lot of people will go to ends of earth to avoid thinking for themselves. Isn't it just a lot easier to run with flock and let shepherd and his dog make all decisions for you?
