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

Tap out

So when it comes to setting a goal; make it simple;

Something that you COULD achieve IF you stretched yourself 5-10%

That’s it

2. Social Accountability

There are but a few folks who are disciplined enough to do what they say

I wasn’t

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?

3. Specifics/deadline

– What is the thing you are going to achieve
– When are you going to achieve it by

Simple

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

Make sense?

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
