Subj: How to light a fire under your ass to get shit done. Because life is about what you do. The more you do, the more you can do. Make sense?
Life is what you make it.
Which begs the question – What makes life good?
Great men lead great lives. Great men make themselves great, entitled men take it for granted and fall.
They say the best things in life are free. But, free doesn’t mean guarantee. Free things in life are family and health. Are they really free? you need to take time to workout and see family to keep health and relationships. The only thing in like that’s free is also the most valuable – time.
Everything is either living or dying.
Right now you are either getting better or getting worse.
At what? at everything.
But what about good things?
Good food, Good times, Good money.
Good thinks must be made, and making takes action. Make money, make love, make use of you talents, make use of your skill. Are you talentless and skill less? Make use of your time and learn a skill. Then make
Don’t take action, don’t make anything. You can make a lot by taking a lot of action. Or you can make a little by taking a little action.
It’s up to you. After all, Life is what You Make It.

Time is free or it can be expensive, it all depends on your perspective.
The Bum and the CEO have the same 24 hours in a day. Who’s time is more expensive?
Why? Because he made better use of his time.
This doesn’t make bums bad. but would spending time with them be a good use of your time?
What are Your Goals?
Goals keep you focused, and focus prevents procrastination.
Without goals you have no direction. You can do a lot and get nowhere because you have nowhere to go. So, have somewhere to go. Then make a plan to get there.
My goal is to ‘retire’ early.
OK that’s a lie. I never want to truly retire. Being retired sounds boring. Plus, having a fixed income that I hope lasts my golden years sounds disheartening. the only thing constant is change and I’m supposed to rely on a constant, never changing stream of income while the world continues to change? Currency fluctuations, inflation and economic uncertainty. It all seems risky.
The second part of that goal is to set myself up financially to where I will never have to work again if i don’t want to and still live a high quality, rich life doing all the things I want. This means I take responsibility for my financial future. Work, gain knowledge, skill and experience you can leverage and sell later. While getting paid to learn the same knowledge, skills and experience.
You see, goals are important. When my goals changed, my priorities changed, when My mindset changed. I focused on production. Experience and knowledge, investing in myself.
Let me tell you something, the bar is pretty low.
Getting a college degree is easy. Especially business degrees.
I want to build a life I never want to retire from. The work I want to do needs to be fulfilling, thrilling and fun.
The fastest point from A to B is a straight line. So I’m going to give it to you straight and not mince words.
There are many reasons for procrastination. Our day is full of distractions.
Do you have to do it? and, Do I have to do this now?
We are genetically wired to take the path of least resistance. The easy way isn’t bad and long as you’re going the right way. Meaning, if you’re doing what you need to do, and you find an easy way to do it, great! Find more easy ways to do what you need to do and you will do more (and have more) than anyone else!
What motivates you?
Your family? Your peers? Wealth? Being Liked? Being Known? Being the best? Fame? Fortune? Finding a mate?
You can have all of these things. the playing field has been leveled. You can take things into your own hands. Youtube, Facebook, instagram.
You’re capable of more than you think.
Have a goal. A goal is your North Star. You might have set backs or get side tracked. Learn for those and get smarter.
Burn the Boats, do or die. Fight and win or die fighting. Give your all
Fear, uncertainty doubt pay everyman a visit at one time or another. And when they show up, slam the door in their fucking face.
Now I don’t mean be careless or reckless or do something stupid.
But what if I make a mistake?
People make mistakes all the time.

Just get started. If you fuck up, stay up. Learn from it and do better next time. Failure is a part of the process. Failure makes you stronger (Link training to failure article).

Be honest with yourself, be honest with others and give your honest to God best effort and good things will happen.
Life is a long time.
Not knowing what to do isn’t an excuse for not doing something. You need to take action to learn what to do. Then do it.
Think more or think less. Only thing about what you need to do and should do and that’s all you will do.
There’s enough information out there to make your head spin. Lift this, eat that, buy this, take these pills. You’ve seen it before, I’m sure.

things need substance, they need weight, they need punch.
