Cut Through The Bullshit – Get To The Point
Yuli Azarch | August 13, 2016 | No Comments on Cut Through The Bullshit – Get To The Point
I support throwing it all away and actually just doing something. Forget being a perfectionist. Forget getting the perfect logo. Forget getting the perfect website. Just get something up, especially if you’re new. If you’re just starting out and want to create an online business or any type of business, people focus on so many things that are not important at all, really, while they could focus on the important things. Instead of getting the perfect product, perfect blog, perfect website, get something up. Start it going. It will be so much faster than actually thinking of having this perfect something.
This video is a great example. You probably see our YouTube videos that can have a ton of video editing in them, but you won’t see too much video editing here. Heck, I’m making this video out of my bedroom. Right now I’m in Serbia, and this is my bedroom. It’s where I’m making my video. Right now, it’s what I have. I don’t have an island around me where I could shoot a video. Maybe in two weeks I will. I’ll be next to a beach. I’ll make a video from there. But for now, that’s what I have. I could have waited and said, “You know, it’s not a perfect place to shoot a video.” But I said, “You know, it doesn’t matter right now. As long as I deliver great content to you, then it’s worth it, and the video will be good.” Really, cut the perfectionist. Just get to the point. Cut through all the bullshit. There’s so much bullshit that people are focusing on.
Number two, you can make an unlimited amount of research. Today, in 2016, there’s so much information out there. We are bombarded with too much information regarding anything, regarding our health, regarding how to make more money. Anything you want, you can access through Google. You really have too much information. Let’s say you want to start a business. Let’s say you want to start selling on Amazon, for example. You probably can get dozens of podcasts. You can dozens of training programs. You can get a dozen things to start watching. But you can get overloaded with the information, and you will actually not do anything. The person who will actually chose one program, one podcast, something to watch, quickly start implementing, and actually just take action will fare so much further ahead than all the rest who are just reading, listening, watching, or doing whatever it is they’re doing.
Another example is with pickup. Right now, I have a beautiful girlfriend, but a few years ago, I was watching some pickup material. All the guys will relate probably. Maybe some women won’t. I was watching lots of content, lots of videos, lots of articles, like how to do things, but in reality, I was not actually speaking to girls. I wasn’t interacting with them. I wasn’t going out. It was just pure information, and information without execution is worth nothing. You don’t really know something until you actually do it. Only once you do it, do you actually know it.
You can know so many things today, especially with the Internet and access to Google, something we did not have 20 years ago. But if you don’t do it, you just don’t know it, so I invite you to stop doing too much research and focus more on taking action. Research has its place. Of course, sometimes you need to research and you need the program, but not too much. Know how to allocate. Don’t focus on the bullshit. Again, focus on the important things. Get to the point and do what is needed so you can progress.
I want to leave you with a great productivity tip, something again that will cut through anything that you don’t need to do, all the bullshit, which is the following: Actually, if you have a business or if you’re starting a business, you can write down a list of a hundred things that you need to do. Let’s say, create a website, create a logo, do some advertisements, contact person A, contact person B, whatever it is. Write 100 action steps or things you want to achieve or do in order to progress.
The next thing is burn 97 of them. Leave only three, only three. Don’t do any more. This will allow you to focus on the important things devoted to progress you because you can’t focus on 100 things at the same time. This one tip allowed me to scale my income very, very quickly because I stopped focusing on things that don’t matter, because there are a limited amount of things that I can do. There are a limited of things that you can do, but there is only a certain amount of actions, the 20/80 Pareto Rule, that will get you to where you want to get. It’s a great productivity tip. I highly recommend implementing it.
I also recommend watching a video by Art Williams, the “Just Do It” speech. You can search it on YouTube. It’s a great speech I watch every few months. Once in a few months, I get to watch it, which says, again, just fucking do it. Cut through the bullshit. Get to the point. Do what is needed so you can progress through the goal. There are so many things you can do that are not important and will not help you progress. Only a few things will actually get you going. Focus on them, and execution is what you want to be good at, not getting knowledge, not anything else. Really, if you want a quick action step, think of something that you really want to do or some goal you want to achieve, and think of the top three things that will get you there. Cut through all the bullshit. Just do what is needed to progress.
That’s what I recommend.
