I won’t usually email on the weekend, but I had a bunch of questions I wanted to answer before we get to the big 12-month plan on Monday.
Question #1 from Barry: “What’s the best way to plan my day to get more done?”
Great question. The first thing you need to do is a time log, and I learned this from Donald Trump’s lawyer, George Ross.
Carry a notebook with you all day, and mark the pages in 15-minute increments. Over a period of at least 7 days, write down what you are doing in each 15-minute period that you are awake.
You’ll discover the little things that waste a lot of time, as well as when you get your best work done. As George Ross explained at a Dan Kennedy seminar, even Trump carries around a notebook and does this.
Question #2 from Chris: “Hey, love the daily emails. Thanks! Was just wondering what books you are reading right now?”
Hey Chris, thanks for the kind words. Right now I’m reading the classic, “Scientific Advertising”, as well as a biography of a man named Albert Lasker, who is credited (along with John E. Kennedy and Claude Hopkins) for creating some of the best copywriting campaigns of the early 20th century. These guys practically invented the art
and industry of copywriting.
Question #3 from Ron: “Do you do 1-on-1 consulting?”
Hi Ron. No, sorry. All I do is this free newsletter/blog. But stay tuned, I’ll be giving out a lot of great content each week, starting next week of course with the 12-Month Guide to Making $100K.
Have a great weekend,
“If you diligently and successfully apply each concept…and you continue to push in a consistent direction…accumulating momentum step by step and turn by turn, you will eventually reach breakthrough. It might not happen today, or tomorrow, or next week…But it WILL happen.” – Jim Collins, “Good to Great”.
