I like to do new things, I like the experience (see: Challenge) of building and launching different things. Risks, big or small, are probably under-appreciated, and I feel like I can bounce back from anything. *Knocks on wood.
Within all of that:
When I started pushing back on my natural desire to be all things to all people that’s when more opportunities came up.
I pushed back on taking the jobs because they came to me
Daily Rituals are getting a lot of attention in the press and in motivation websites now a days. (Remember this is not a motivation website) because of the common success factor that it seems to have with all successful people.
There are a few reasons I would advocate for daily rituals:
It creates consistency in your work. You focus on the most important things and keep them at top of mind everyday.
You work on yourself first. I’ve found that for you to take on bigger problems and challenges you need to grow bigger yourself. As Brian Tracy says: For things to change, you need to change.
In business and life having someone to look up to and use as a role model can be extremely useful.
A role model can provide guidance and if applicable, you can apply their success strategies to your own situations

When I talk about elevated business life, this is it.
The guy goes with his girlfriend and takes their 4 year old along for the ride. I couldn’t imagine a better education for this kid than camping in the outdoors, experiencing all the life has to offer: different cultures, different scenery, different food.

Creating a good system to make money and travel the world is what I want to be able to do.
After I released my first digital product: a book full of tips for entrepreneurs called I Wish I knew I realized that there was a whole world of income that I was missing. My business strategy consulting company SME Strategy works on value based billing, which is great, but it doesn’t allow me to travel and live the full life that I want.
As part of my quest to continually live a better life I have to challenge myself and stretch myself and be unfortable.
So I’ve decided to do a monthly goals report to keep myself accountable.
