Do less things...! And see what happens.

Hi Warriors!

Just wanted to share this thought with you today. It will help you a lot,
both in your internet business as well as in life.

Here it is:
"Success often lies in what you DON'T DO, rather then in what you DO".


What does it mean? - Cut away unnecessary, time consuming and uncertain things. Concentrate on SIMPLE, IMPORTANT things that can be done NOW.

With such approach your business will be shedding off the "dead skin"
of energy and time consuming activities.

Very often in history, really RICH people were those who did LESS things,
but did the RIGHT ones. They knew how to cut off the garbage.


So again, lets remember: SUCCESS OFTEN COMES FROM HOW
LITTLE YOU DO INSTEAD OF HOW MANY THINGS YOU DO.


Enjoy your weekend!

George Grant

    That's solid advice.

    From Monday to Thursday - hypnosis time.
    Friday to Saturday - meditation.
    Sunday: Action

    Generally, I invest most of the time in esoteric stuff.

    I've cut out a lot of workload and I am happier than ever. I just do the little things that convey results. Small changes, big results.

    20% of your actions will get 80% of your results!

    My focus right now is to get involved on Warrior Forum. At least ten or so posts a day. If I get that done, I can do other things to help me grow online marketing career.

    I think the word that summaries your statement is "FOCUS". If you are focused you do less cause you laser target your effort to only specific productive areas and this is key to achieving success faster.

    Thanks for this awesome post!

    Good luck to us all in our endeavor!

      That is so true. Like how so many people read and read and read. But never produce..

    here is the breakdown ..

    people who do not see much opportunity ..and are grasping at every straw they can..usually do not get far,, or if they do they usually will fall behind ..

    where a much smaller group of human being see a huge amount of opportunity and will find those opportunities that fit them and run with that .. then they will have to say no to a very long list of opportunities that don't fit them and their strategy ..

    as one of the guys from shark tank who runs an investment company .. he does not invest f=or spectulation// but dividend income .. or income of any kind .. if it does not provide an income ..then they don't invest ..

    and venture capital agencies..might get 2000 pitches to fund businesses every year ..but may only fund 20 ..that is a lot of nos ..

    Reach for the roof and you're sure to get there.
    Reach for the stars and, even if you only reach the moon, you'll have achieved far greater success and will know how to get even further.

    Take a piece of paper, and write down all the things you need to do right now. This brain dumping exercise is a great way to get all the important things on your mind down on paper.
    Then its a process of ticking them off as you do them.

    Importantly by doing this, you end up doing less to get more success. Because your fully focused on what's important. As you have this down on paper.

  • Work smarter, not harder. You get more done and you're less stressed that way.

  • The power of letting go can be huge. We often clutter our lives with the unnecessary. "Do what you can with what you have from where you are." Keep it simple. If a task or project doesn't create growth and expansion in your life, trash it. Also, a suggestion - learn how to ask the right questions. We have access to the Infinite, and there is an answer to everything. Asking the right questions will make all the difference in obtaining solutions. "The quality of life is determined by the quality of questions we ask." I recommend the book You2 (You squared) by Price Pritchett. He suggests that we can take quantum leaps in our lives and literally SKIP all the steps in between that were once thought necessary to succeed. Again, there's an answer to everything. Why not get curious about how to get from point A to point B with less steps?

    You should be able to master a certain thing to be successful in it.

    It's hard to succeed with so many endeavours.

    It takes a lot of courage and dedication.

    Thanks for sharing this kind of advice.

    It's really worth reading.


    We should focus only on the things that are worth wasting our time and thought.

  • Sound advice! We all need a reminder here and there of things like these.
    I often need to take a step back and reflect on what I'm doing, because usually I end up getting sucked in, into busyness frenzy, while rarely being so productive as it seems judging by my busyness.
