No lifting today, so we're focusing on self-improvement.
Here's one of my secrets to success.
Reactive people try to "find time" for important things. Proactive people MAKE time for important things. Big difference. And that's why Reactive people struggle while Proactive people succeed. Choose how to use your time wisely on the right things. Be PRO-active, not RE-active.
Now, for all trainers who want to be part of a big mission that is going to change the fitness world...
The Turbulence Training Certification and One Million Transformation Mission is now open for FIVE trainers to get started.
I'm excited to work with you and will be eternally grateful for your support of the One Million Transformation Mission
Now, from our www.SuccessQnA.com sessions. These have built up over the last week, so here's a good summary of your great questions and my experience-based answers:
Q: Hey Craig, How does one go about staying focused on one project? I feel like I have so many opportunities I want to hit! - Andrew
You must prioritize them and say no to the projects that are not going to make the biggest impact on your vision. Steve Jobs is famous not only for what he did do, but for what he chose not to do. Make sure you have your vision and let it guide you. Watch this: www.ANewAmericanDream.com
Q: What would you recommend are essential daily tasks to keep your business running optimaly, and working towards growth? - Pablo
Driving revenue. That is your number one task in the business. It's like breathing. No revenue = no business. No oxygen = no life. Most people spend way too much time on non-essential items, and forget about what keeps a business alive.
As the old saying goes, "Nothing happens until someone sells something."
Q: How can I stay productive when Facebook is a major procrastination tool? - Chantelle
You need to identify what is most important in your life. You need to come up with 2 solutions (or more) to your FB problem. You could get an Internet blocking (Internet Freedom) program. Google it. Also, read my Time Management Kindle book found on Amazon.
Q: Suggestions for creative time/magic time while traveling? Want to still create while I'm away, so would you suggest just trying to keep as close to normal schedule as possible?
You bet. I was getting up at 1:30am in San Diego (which was 4:30am EST). And even when I went to Asia this year, I immediately switched my mind to stick to the same schedule. Everything's better when you get up earlier and attack the project...and make sure that the night before you outline what needs to be done in the morning.
Q: I have a new eBook that I wrote titled "57 Ways to Reboot and Recharge Your Life" based on over 10 years of experience and experiments. Do you recommend that I give that away at first in exchange for email addresses to build an audience and list? - Luther
People don't want 57 things. They want ONE thing. ONE big secret that can change their lives immediately. Come up with a 5-7 page free report on the ONE solution to their biggest problem. Start with that.
Q: Craig, will you be hosting or a guest in any future ETR seminars or workshops in the coming months? If so, how would someone be able to find them online? Thank you for your time! - Michael
We will post all of our events on this page and through our newsletter at www.earlytorise.com. Trust me, if we're doing something, you will hear about it.
Q: Hey Craig, could you recommend a resource for starting and customizing a WordPress blog? - Lukas
We covered this in the July issue of Financial Independence monthly (step by step guideline). It will be up this week.
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Measure PROGRESS, not perfection. Understand you will never reach perfection...but you must celebrate your journey as you improve from point A to point B. Make each day better than your last.
The next time you let fear stop you from taking action on a project, or writing an email, or filming a video, or doing a small seminar (or a large one like the TT Summit), think of this
...Every time you delay your projects, dozens, if not hundreds or even thousands of people, continue to sit at home hurting because you are holding back the solution to their problem.
