How To Do The Sh*t You Say You’re Going To Do
by DanM in Blog Post No Comments
Simple, but so fucking easy to talk complete and utter shite to ourselves isn’t it?
So how DO you do the things you say you’re going to do?
Well I have figured out 4 areas you need to cover to achieve more from life
1. A goal
Simple but most people fuck this up; they either come up with some crazy-assed goal that they don’t achieve and get crushed, demotivated and tap out…
…or they totally lowball it and achieve what at best can be filed under ‘meh’ and wonder why they don’t achieve X or why and again
So when it comes to setting a goal; make it simple;
Something that you COULD achieve IF you stretched yourself 5-10%
2. Social Accountability
There are but a few folks who are disciplined enough to do what they say
On some areas of life I am less so (and actively working on it hence *this*)
However this does take time and for most people social accountability is extremely powerful
Yes you can tell a friend or partner
A coach or mentor is another viable option
However I find posting things on social media and saying what I’m going to do is best because:
a) if I don’t keep my word it makes any subsequent sales or marketing activities less impactful
b) I don’t want to look like a twat
So today we are going to leverage social media – because you don’t want to look like a twat, do you?
– What is the thing you are going to achieve
– When are you going to achieve it by
4. Emotional attachment to the goal and NOT the outcome
Now you will have heard me – and others – talk about ‘not being emotionally attached to the outcome’
That, is still true
(And coming from a hardcore corpse sales background, this was HARD)
However you DO need to be emotionally attached to the reason WHY you are doing the thing you are doing
Even simpler – WHAT IS YOUR WHY’S (plural)
– What is the altruistic reason you want to achieve the goal (family, spouse, charity etc)
– What selfish reason do you want to achieve the goal (looks, treats, holidays, status, etc)
If you define those four and DO THE WORK
You’re good to go
