The One Thing I Hate Doing Every Day (but has made me wealthy + happy more than anything else)
The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind of traveling, speaking on stages, and now Momentum ‘18, which I know many of you are playing!
As I sat down to write this blog, I started to think about all of the topics I could teach you.
In my 18+ years in this industry, I’ve learned a lot. And if there’s one thing you all know about me, it’s that I like to give away my best stuff for free. (What can I say? I take after my grandmother in my Jenerosity.)
So I made a quick list of all the things I could possibly teach (hint: this is a #protip you can use yourself when you’re creating your own blog content).
The topics on my list included: marketing, branding, sales, operations, how to lead a team, how to hire a team, how much money you can expect to make in year one, what digital marketing looks like, how to create sales funnels, leadership must-haves…and the list goes on.
While I actually plan to teach on all of this and more in 2018, I wanted to hone in on a daily ritual that has now changed everything for me.
I call it slaying my dragons.
What does “slaying dragons” look like? It means I do the things I hate first and get it out of the way. Every day.
Let that sink in for a moment. Each and every day, I wake up and I do the thing that I hate first.
Now it took me a long time (truth: it took me a long, long time) to see the benefits of doing this. In fact, most of you probably are thinking, “How can that be your success ritual?”
It’s because slaying my dragons taught me that the tasks that I hated to do were not the obstacles holding me back. I was my own obstacle.
As we begin to end 2017, ask yourself this — Do you want to have a successful brand? Do you want to build something that will truly replace your day job? Or even build your company to epic proportions like I have? Then hard work is absolutely required. But you know what else is also required? Taking care of the little things, because those things are what make a difference in building your momentum.
