What goes into making success happen? Work. Work with a little bit of preparation and a lot bit of follow-through.
You want to write a book? Schedule writing times. Julien and I just scheduled an hour a day together for the near future for the new book.
You want to get fit? Plan ahead and have healthy snacks in the house. Plan your sleep schedule and get up earlier in the morning to work out when your metabolism wants it more.
You want to get rich? Spend less, earn more, and find ways to earn while you sleep. Saving, oddly enough, isn’t really the best of those ways these days, but that’s a post of another kind.
You want more attention? Blog, make videos, get out to events, go out and hungrily find the audience you need. Asking for retweets all day dries up eventually.
Sharpen your pencil. Use the pencil. Follow through.
It doesn’t get much simpler than that. But it sure isn’t easy.
Coming over the next few weeks, as I remember and as time permits, I’m going to write a bit more about this, including sharing some of my visual methods for building projects, and some of my methods for staying motivated and keeping on task.
It’s just as hard for me as it is for you, sometimes, but I’ll share some of how I combat that.
