It’s time to be honest now…
After spending last week on the beach at Stradbroke, I was glad to get back to the office. I had lots I wanted to sink my teeth into and get done.
I see a lot of people with great ideas, with the want to change the world… but I don’t see a lot of people with the work ethic to match. They are full of hot air, they are full of talk.
They want to be one of these laptop lifestyle entrepreneurs who sits on the beach drinking cocktails.
…and that’s fine, if that’s what they want.
The reality of business is though, at some point you have to work your ass off to get there.
Sure, you might get to an end point that does that. You might have an automated marketing funnel that feeds you leads, you might end up outsourcing all the work and getting someone to do everything for you.
But you’ve got to get to that point. Somehow you’ve got to get there.
And that means you have to build the marketing funnel, or you’ve got to pay someone to do it for you, or you’ve got to create something… you’ve got to do the work.
My favorite quote is written and stuck to the wall in front of my laptop…
“This isn’t about having a great idea. Great ideas are free.
Nope, this is about taking initiative, and making things happen.” Seth Godin
You see, it’s true. You’ll meet a million people with a “good idea”. More than a million… let’s say a billion.
But very few people who’ve actually made that idea happen.
So that is what I am going to implore you to do this week… this is your challenge.
a) We’re running a #productivityparty in the reallifebiz group. Come and join us, it’s not too late to get involved. We’re there to support you and help you get things done.
b) Tell me below, what do you actually need to get done right now? What needs to happen to help you move forward?
Stop dreaming of an ideal world working one hour, and you don’t do anything else. That’s great, it’s an end goal… but let’s get stuff done, let’s make that happen.
Let’s now just dream about these things any more!
