Success Comes Down to ONE Word

Hope your coffee is hot, this should take you about 1 minute and 25 seconds to read (According to Forbes, the average adult reads 300 words per minute)

Much like Alanis Morissette once said…

Isn’t it ironic

Or what I say far too often — Do as I say, not as I do. 

I didn’t publish a bog post yesterday, and I am trying to be consistent with daily hilariousness on this blog.

I imagine you look like this while reading these blog posts…



Minus the face tattoo.

Unless, you’re into that sort of thing.

And who am I to judge?


This is what it takes.

I have told you about my love for the book The Slight Edge, and how it is my absolute favorite book.

Turning simple disciplines into massive success.

And I think you can summarize that down to ONE single word.


That is what it takes.

The successful people are not cut from a different cloth from you & I.

Most do not have advantages over any of us.

They have 24 hours, just like you & I do.

The one thing they have done, is they have mastered consistency.

We are weeks away from 2018, but you can get started today.

Write out a 90 day plan.

Write out what you want to accomplish in the 4 areas of your life; mind, health, relationships & wealth.

And then reverse engineer each of them

  1. What do you need to do daily to master your mind?
  2. What do you need to do daily to take control of your health?
  3. What do you need to do daily to have a thriving relationship with your wife/partner & kids?
  4. What do you need to do daily for your busienss to propel your busienss forward?

I print out a weekly action plan every week, and score myself. This has helped me tremendously.

You cannot improve what you do not measure. 

Focus on winning the day.

Don’t worry much about next week or next month.

Just like eating an elephant — one bite at a time.

I love that phrase, but who the Hell eats an elephant? Is that a delicacy somewhere? Do you put ketchup on it? You put it on a bun? Does it go well with wine?

There are things I need to know!

Sorry…Got off track there for a bit.
