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.
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.
This is a guest post by Joel J. Miller. Formerly a vice president at Thomas Nelson, he is the author of the fascinating Independence-era biography, The Revolutionary Paul Revere. You can find him on Twitter or his blog.
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.

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.
Today marks a major milestone: 100 podcast episodes. I admit that, when I started this podcast back in February 2012, I never thought I would get here.
So far, it’s been really successful (5.5 million downloads, consistently ranked in iTunes Top 10 for Business), and everything seems to be working really well. So, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right?
As a busy blogger, podcaster, author, speaker and consultant, I get asked all the time about the tools I use to get it all done.
So I decided to let you peek inside my toolbox and wrote a simple ebook with ALL of them.
You can’t buy Inside My Toolbox. There’s only one way to get it—by subscribing to my FREE email newsletter.
