As part of the Overnight Success series, I wanted to end this year’s posts by talking about giving thanks and making constant connection. Essentially, you can’t be an overnight success without the help of others. Give thanks to these people all the time, not just at the end of the year.
In this latest installment of the Overnight Success series, let’s agree to make SMART goals: Simple, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely goals that you work towards to achieve your own success. Let’s put those goals out there, and then work on them every week. Let’s keep them front and center of our attention, so that we push further and further in that direction.
In this next installment of the Overnight Success series, I come to you from Paris, France. My point: that we can’t just stay in the trenches, least of all the tech trench. We have humanity to consider, and human behavior to take into account. Without us practicing our armchair versions of the “ologies,” we’re going to have worse results.
In our latest in the Overnight Success series, I bring up a point that Julien talks about in his recent speeches: that platform and community have to come first before success. People rarely find success while they’re still obscure. Their platform grows after their success, but most successful people have a platform from which to share ideas, and a community around which those ideas hold weight. Watch the video.
For your next dose of Overnight Success, I share a secret of mine that I’ve used successfully for the last few years. When everyone else lets off the gas around the Holidays, I use that time to gun it past them. I make lots of content and business value in the weeks between US Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Here’s the video. (If you can’t see it, click here.)
And for our next installment of the Overnight Success series, let’s talk about travel. Success doesn’t come to your door. You have to go find it. Here’s a quick note about that.

Small talk. We think of it as something to avoid, or we glance through it on the way to more important things. And yet, I’ve found it vital to what I’ve accomplished, as a little kindness goes a long way. This is part 8 of the Overnight Success series.
This is part 7 of the Overnight Success video series. In this one, I talk about how important taking some time away and replenishing is to your overall success. Some times, we’re grinding (working and really making things happen). Other times, we’re clocking (we’re there supposedly working, but we’re just pushing hours, not really getting anything done). The point of this video is to suggest that getting away from everything is just as important as pushing hours at tasks. You with me?
