Success: The Uncommon Application of Common Knowledge

In this short video by Applied Transformation, Inc., I talk to Roger Green about how I came up with the idea that success is the uncommon application of common knowledge, and explain why I’m such a firm believer in the concept.

If you aren’t buying it just yet, think about this . . . everyone I interviewed some years ago about the secret to success–from Buzz Aldrin, to Erin Brockovich, to average businesspeople, to undergraduate college students–all gave me almost the exact same answer.  So, if we all know what it takes to be successful, then why is it that we aren’t all as successful as we’d like to be?

What’s your take on the secret to success?  Is your recipe for success the same as the answer I heard repeated from each person I interviewed, or do you have different ideas about how success is achieved?  Please leave your thoughts in the comments section.

  1. I think this is what all of us should do. Instead of trying really hard to discover ways that are not tried yet, why not use the available resources, and utilize it in an uncommon manner? You have given me a nice idea and your insights are valuable. Thanks!
