The 60-day challenge.
In the first 60 days, in the next 60 days:
FOCUS to only ONE THING: if you bought a course, use ONLY THIS, do what it teaches. If you follow a IM Teacher, do what he says AND ONLY what he says.
STOP YOUTUBE searching, dabbing: do ONLY what the course teaches, step by step. Not search more on Youtube or Facebook, or blogs. Not go "deep" which is an excuse to get lost in the particulars and definately go away from the path.
TURN OFF NOTIFICATIONS: no wapp, no fb, no smartphone noises while you're working. If the world collapses you will know later.
STICK TO THE PLAN: dedicate a SPECIFIC amount of HOURS EVERY DAY, no matter what's happening. If the course tells you how many, stick to it. if not do it the first day, count the hours you took, and then add 1 or 2 and stick to that amount EVERY DAY.
NO CREATIVITY: do what it takes, what the course, guru says, do not follow your 'opinions', if they were right you did not buy the course, cause you were making money already.
NO MULTITASKING: all this crap of being able to do X amount of things at the same time is a completely waste of time, you are not a computer, your attentions gets divided if you do it, and it turn in less efficiency.
This for 60 days, the jusdge the results: did you make money? yes, rinse and repeat, if not, ask for a refund.
Simple, yet effective. I started doing this in 2010 with a Seo course, it worked, then i shifted to paid advertising and focused on email marketing.
This is a rule, a mindset.
