High performing Founders have one thing in common
They do the same things daily for YEARS.
Average founders have one thing in common
They let the day decide what they'll do for years.
It reminds me of this Michael Jordan quote:
“If you do the work you get rewarded. There are no shortcuts in life.”
Founders who believe they're doing the right things and not being rewarded aren't always doing the right things. Most of them are actually waking up every morning looking for shortcuts rather than do the daily work.
The Founder that does revenue-generating activities daily for years gets rewarded.
and the Shyamalan twist is... daily work IS the shortcut.
Check this out:
Adam has been selling for over a decade. Most people in this position are usually too proud to change what they're doing daily.
But Adam and his team didn't do that. They sat down, rejigged their approach to the day and were rewarded.
$50k/mo. More than half a million a year.
Here's my point:
The entrepreneur space is full of digital marketing BS. People are touting different as better and that new tactics and strategies are the way you're going to own the market. The truth is... if you're competing on tactics and strategies you're one misplaced bet away from being crushed.
It’s probably because one of the greatest failures of the internet is making this meme pervasive:
' Doing the same thing again and again while expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. '
What. the. hell.
Doing the same thing, again and again, is the only way you create mastery. It’s the only way you find nuance, it is the only way you receive compound gains.
It means that you've found a machine that will take care of you, your business, your family, and your customers.
Once you've found that you can begin to work on impacting the world at an exponential level.
So in the meanest way possible, I'm going to tell you that if you're doing the same things daily...
You're not insane!
The question is: are you doing revenue-generating work or are you seeking shortcuts?
