Greg Secker was asked how a typical day unfolds for him and what he does to make it more productive. Mr. Secker responded by saying that no two days are really alike for him. This is because Secker is spread out across several different companies throughout the day. The majority of his time is spent on working from home. That is a constant. Greg says that he even schedules and has board meeting from his house.
When Greg Secker is not working from home, he says he is traveling. He travels for his motivational speaking tour. And when Greg Secker is not traveling, speaking or running his business from home, he is running his foundation. This involves him networking and making new contacts to support his philanthropic efforts. Greg Secker says that running and growing a foundation is a novelty to him, so he is still getting the hang of it.
Next, Greg Secker was asked about how he brings his ideas to life. Secker says he follows a multiple step process to bring his ideas to fruition. It involves something called pre-planning. This is when you think of something you want to achieve, have or do and create steps on how you are going to achieve that. Before going through the pre-planning phase, Greg says you need to visualize yourself achieving what you want to do or having what you desire. This puts the brain into a state where you can more easily pre-plan or map out a roadmap to your goal.
Once you have set your goals, you pre-plan and come up with a workable solution that will allow you to achieve your goals in a realistic way and time fashion. Of course, Greg Secker stresses that your goals have to be realistic or otherwise this entire process, including pre-planning will be ineffective. The reason pre-planning works so well for Greg Secker is he says that our brains perform better when we already have done something or think we have done something. This is why he suggests already imagining that you have done something or achieved something that you want. You will then be able to more effectively brainstorm ideas.
