    for me probably will be spend more time in a high leverage activities that produce results.

    Such as speaking, content creating etc.

    1. Action
    2. Action
    3. Action

    I think we could all take more action than we currently do. It's the one biggest thing that separates the big earners from the low earners -- the amount of action being taken. As they say, the harder you work the luckier you get.

      I agree with your point in general. Thinking, talking and not taking enough action is a big success killer for sure.

      But one of my biggest problems in the past was taking actions, but they weren't targeted or specific enough.

      I was swimming hard but I was going in circles, back tracking or spinning my wheels until I got some direction and focus. That's a newbie or rookie mistake I still see tons of people making too.

    To me I feel, I am striving to anchor on:
    1. Crystal clear clarity of goal
    2. Total focusing on goal
    3. Strong enough decision with a time limit to make the goal

    Action without goal often end up in playing only.
    Action without focus on the goal wastes time.
    Action without a strong enough decision to make it in time is planning to fail!

    I don't believe the items you list are the issue for anyone. Those are some of the things, the micro tasks, that get in the way of the big picture.

    To piggyback on Will's post... You need to get off your ass and get it done!

    It's not only true for someone just starting, but perhaps more true for those of us who have had some degree of success.

    It's too easy to rest on your laurels and minimally maintain what you've got. I know that's been my issue since I hit 6 figures, but what I also know is that I can double my income if I just get my second project done!

    AND, I can probably expand my current business by at least 50% if I expand it the way I know I can.

    So, (I'm talking to myself now)...

    Vacation's over!

    Honestly there arnt enough hours in the day.. I like to train MMA too so that takes up about 3 hours with travelling there and back.

    So more hours would help me progress my IM business faster
