I even did a whole series of articles on Things I Learned About Business from Top Gun.
So let me ask you. Have you seen The Matrix?
I love that movie, especially the scene where Morpheus and Neo are walking down the street and Neo sees the lady in the red dress.
That scene is so powerful if you are paying attention.
First off, they are walking against they flow of traffic. Successful people tend to go against the grain. They "observe the masses" and "do the opposite."
Secondly, Morpheus explains to Neo what most successful entrepreneurs already know.... The masses of the people in the world around us are locked into a "system" that confines them to only a fraction of the potential that they have in life. In one sense most people (whether they realize it or not) are slaves to the "system" but they don't have to be. They too can "take the red pill" and start taking control of their own destiny if they want to.
Lastly, the most important part of that scene is with the lady in the red dress. Some people would argue that she represents lust and sexual desire. I say it's more than that. She is the embodiment of all those things that can keep someone from becoming successful.
I'm not saying you can't do any of these things. I watch TV & movies. But I try not to do it when I need to be bidding on jobs or sending out invoices. There are websites that stream current and older tv shows for you (I'm currently catching up on Magnum P.I.) or DVR's allow you to record it and watch it later.
In case you wanna rewatch the scene, I found it on YouTube... Enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9p8LXD5UDs
