Yes, I’m fine! Thanks for asking…
I’m really fortunate to have people in my life that check in on me when I vanish for weeks at a time (no, it’s not a magic trick). I know that, for some people, this sort of behavior warrants concern.
For me, nothing could be further from the truth.
It’s all part of my “Master Plan to Convince People to Stop Wasting Their Time and Start Creating a Future of Leisure.”… Mwaaaahhhh!
(sorry, that just had to have a maniacal laugh)
I can’t remember when or where I decided to adopt this practice, but I’m convinced that it’s the sole factor behind every ounce of success I’ve achieved:
- Work really hard, with intense focus, for a short period of time
- Build a system to automate everything you did in Step 1
- Take a very long vacation
- (optional) Repeat, if desired, though typically not necessary if your vision is big enough and you do 1 & 2 correctly
I’ve been doing this for myself, and for clients, for over 20 years. Some of you reading this can attest to the fact because you’ve been part of it.
I’m thrilled to have helped those that I have but, like you, my time and energy are limited.
However, my passion knows no bounds. It makes me crazy to wake up every morning and know that so many are people are wasting their day working on mundane tasks that aren’t really getting them any closer to their dreams. UGH… it makes my skin crawl!
So I’ve been living Step 1 to put the finishing touches on a publicly-available version of the software system that I, and my high-end clients, have been using for the past 15+ years to automate almost every aspect of our businesses.
In addition, I’ve been recording everything I’ve learned about the process and will be making that available, as well. As my father always said:
A wise man learns from his mistakes.
A wiser man learns from someone else’s.
The school of hard knocks sucks. Sure, there’s some sense of pride in showing off your battle scars. But why meander blindly through the minefield when someone can just give you a lift in the F-16?
I need your help!
When working with individual clients, I was afforded the time and access to really understand their specific needs. We’ve incorporated all of the lessons learned from those clients into the new offerings.
Now I want to make sure we can help the most people possible.
So I’m looking for people who’d be willing to spend a little bit of time talking about their business. If I’m on a mission to rid the world of busy work, I need to understand what parts of your business make you crazy, and what parts you’d like to see grow.
In particular, I’m looking for people who have something to teach others. I know that’s technically everyone but, for the moment, I’m specifically looking for:
If you’ve spoken in public, written a book, recorded an audio program or shot an instructional video, you’re exactly who I want to chat with.
I promise we’ll keep it as short as possible. I know your time is both limited and very valuable. In fact, that’s the whole reason I’m doing this!!!
If you’re interested, please drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t have the time to invest right now, I still hope you’ll sign up for my email list. I’m going to start talking about specific tools and techniques in June and, to be honest, I’m hesitant to put everything “out there” on the blog and social media. If you’re on the email list, you’ll be sure to get everything, as soon as it comes out.
Again, I want to express my gratitude to all of the companies and individuals who have trusted my company to build these systems for them. Without you, we would never have had the knowledge and experience to offer this to the rest of the world.
