To get what you want you need a gameplan.
This is that gameplan.
Some of these concepts have been covered in other articles on setting goals, but some are new.
I don’t like to repeat myself, but I’ve been inspired lately, and I like linear.
My goal in this piece is to give you an actionable, linear, multi-step, action plan to get whatever you want.
My hope is that this piece gives you a plug and play solution for any goal you want to hit.
And that you can come back to it as a reference point on your journey.
Check out the video and bullet point notes for your reference:
HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT
1) Choose Goals That Solve Pain
- 24 hours in a day, 8 are sleeping, another 5 are maintenance/travel/chores, 6 good hours
- Wealth, health, relationships, lifestyle – those are your most painful areas, in order (minus health issues)
- Solve pain points to be happier – happiness should be primary priority in life
- Put primary effort into your most painful point (wealth, if you’re young you just dont know it yet)
2) Reality Check
- Model success, deductive reasoning to see if you’re capable
- If you want to build facebook do you have the iq of mark zuckerberg – remove from model through deduction
- Modeling celebrity style but not celebrity
3) Aim For 50% Of What’s Possible
- Most people grossly underestimate what’s possible
- What’s possible or 100% is actually not optimal
- Optimal is the sweet spot of success, and that’s 50% of what’s possible
- Sweet spot is defined as the point before returns become diminishing, counterproductive or dangerous returns – therefore not worth the effort
- 100% means obsessive, unfun, dimished/counterprodutive/dangerous returns – 50% means optimal ROI (ROI measured in happiness/quality of life)
- 100% is 17 hours of work a day is what you’re capable of, 50% is 8.5 hours a day
- 100% is 90 lbs. of muscle (test, tren, Eq, Insulin, HGH), 50% is 45 lbs.(possible naturally or with TRT)
- 100% fashion is 10k tailored suit on a sunday, 50% is clean, minimalist and stylish
4) Aim For What’s Sustainable
- If it’s not sustainable it’s not worth doing.
- Are you going to do acroyoga everyday forever? – probably not, therefore not worth it because benefits will be short lived
- A hobby is fun, goals are sustainable and scheduled
- Consistency and sustainability are key – no point pushing too hard only to drop it later
- Everything I put into my routine, I assume is for life, thats why I’m careful with what I add
- My daily sustainable actions are stretching, cardio, RLD, daily, weekly, quarterly, yearly recurring and acute tasks
- If not – end quitting goals or possibly burnout/breakdown
1) Focus On The Concepts That Count
- Handle the big concepts before you even think about the small concepts (if you ever handle small concepts
- 80/20 principle – pareto’s law
- Body is caloric surplus, progressive resistance, adequate protein, PED’s (not BCAAs, meal timing, sodium ratios)
- Blogging is quantity, quality, time and SEO titles (not optimal newsletter timing or IG fans)
- Lifestyle is sunshine, less stress, early rising, revenue control, organization and leisure time – (not learning a new language)
2) Schedule Your Productivity Primetime
- Reducing 80/20 principle to one thing, most productive thing for your business/life, taken from Gary Keller’s book the one thing
- Spend your most productive period on your most profitable action
- Set a daily productive primetime for your most productive activity, mine is 9 – noon
3) Value Momentum Over Money
- Momentum is engine of your mission and more important than money
- Forget returning things, cancelling small subscriptions, making long purchase decisions – just get it done, throw it out or move on
- Losing momentum is deadly
- Avoid paralysis of analysis – spend what you need to accomplish your goals (within reason)
- The more positive momentum you have the easier it is to accomplish your goals
- And your goals should be big enough to justify ignoring the bullsh*t
- Not permission to be reckless with money
1) Set It And Forget It
- End game – promised land
- Goal is now running on autopilot
- Antidote to productivity-cult-culture neurotic mentality
- You want to get to a point where you’re good so that you can aim to get more for less and level up your lifestyle
2) Level Up Your Lifestyle (Luxury living)
- Get the most reward for the least effort
- Land of positive decisions – no longer pushing boulder up mountain, tap dancing behind on the way down
- Business – outsource headaches, reduce hours, increase creative work, hire cold callers, VA, agencies – yet make same money or more
- Mission – transform business into creative work – eg. productize service business into authority/product based business
- Body – reduce time in gym and maintain body, or maintain with more creative exercises
- Luxury isn’t Louis Vuitton, its living how you want
