Business is boring. There. I said it. And I’m not taking it back. But I only mean it’s boring according to the definition most newbies use. Because they believe anything you have to do over and over again is boring. But guess what?
Business is boring if you don’t do the repetitive work.
That sounds backwards. But it’s not. Take these examples…
- Writers, write. But successful writers write every day.
- Youtubers produce videos. But successful YouTubers shoot videos every day.
- Chefs, cook. But successful chefs cook in the kitchen every day.
Hmm…seems to be a pattern forming. Right? I said a couple of quick things about that pattern in this video.
So, it’s the repetition that gets you where you wanna go. Yeah, if you insist on thinking of that as boring and repetitive, then it is. But when you wrap your mind around what you actually get to do, it’s the opposite of boring.
And what do you get to do in business that people who have to show up for a job day after day don’t get to do?
You get to work on your dreams. Your vision.
Napoleon Hill shared 13 key behaviors to success.
One of the behaviors, on the list, is persistence. More than just about anything else, persistence is the thing almost all successful people have in common. And a lack of it is what most unsuccessful people have.
Clichés are clichés because they sound a lot like the truth.
Like this one…When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Instead of a get-tough-and-get-going attitude, most people pick up their toys and go home. But I believe a lot of those people just need a better plan. And they need to work that plan. Every day. Coincidentally, another one of Napoleon Hill’s 13 keys to success is an organized plan.
But how do you get one? Make it up? Or maybe find some templates on the internet?
I know most entrepreneurs love the thrill of the hunt. And chasing down a dream or a new idea. But most entrepreneurs hate planning because it feels like it gets in the way. But it’s actually the opposite that’s true.
Here’s what actually boring.
Not having any customers. Or clients. Or patients. No audience. No sales. And no profits. Yeah. BO RING.
Because when you don’t have any customers, clients, patients, sales, or profits, you don’t have any money. And have you found anything you enjoy doing that doesn’t take money? No, I didn’t think so.
So, here’s my encouragement to you for this week. And every week. Get yourself a System. A System where you can automate and delegate a lot of the so-called “boring stuff.” When you take the time to set it up, your System can pay for itself. Over and over and over.
If you’re looking for a cheap, quick, easy fix, forget about the link I’m sharing. But if you want a proven System you can plug your business into that works, then, by all means, hit that link and get started today.
