My new podcast debuts tomorrow on July 9, 2014. Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come. In this short video, I explain why we are stripping away everything but the core content.
Have you ever found yourself in a hyper-productive period? You’re making progress on your goals, checking boxes on your list. It’s like music to your ears. But to everyone else in your life, it’s more like noise.
When I first started in publishing I was determined to succeed. I would get to the office at 5:00 a.m. and stay till 6:00 p.m. I even came in on Saturdays. All told, I clocked about seventy hours a week.
I’ve since learned there’s a word for this kind of schedule: crazy.
When I set out to publish my first book, I didn’t get one rejection letter. I got twenty-nine.
I know it all too well: if you’re an aspiring author, nobody is going to hand you your success on a silver tray with a little cherry on top.
You may have heard me talk about marketing guru Jeff Walker. Forbes magazine called him the 400 million dollar man.
Just last year, I bought his online course called The Product Launch Formula. I paid $2,000. (I know, it’s a lot.) But it was worth every penny. I recouped my investment in the first ten minutes of my first launch. It revolutionized the way I do marketing.
When we think of leaders from America’s revolutionary era, our minds jump to military commanders like George Washington, political organizers like Samuel Adams, and rousing orators like Patrick Henry. In the hierarchy of the Revolution, these men stand atop the loftiest rungs. For good reason.
These men accomplished amazing feats against incredible odds. But they could not have done it alone. Like executives in a successful company, they required the service and sacrifice of others to achieve their goals. They required effective lieutenants—people like Paul Revere.
This is my favorite rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner by the Gaither Vocal Band.

I’ve worked with several executive assistants over the years, and I have found it is a make-or-break relationship when it comes to my success.
Think about it: None of us can do it all on our own. We need to bring others into our work to help us succeed in it. And the bigger the dream, the more help we usually need.
Starting things is simple. It’s progress that’s hard. Nothing makes that truth come alive like looking back on your week and seeing what didn’t get finished.
When we begin a project there’s all kinds of enthusiasm. We’re energized by that surge of excitement that comes from novelty and our own creativity. But that surge is like starter fluid; it’s not the fuel that will see us through the journey.
