Hello again my friend
This email is a bit long, but essential reading if you’re looking to
make great strides in your business, which I’ll assume you do.
You know Vilfredo, right?
80% of marketers have heard of Vilfredo, but only 20% actually
pay attention to what he stumbled across in 1906.
Which, of course, is the “Pareto principle” (80/20 rule)
Now, I want you to seriously consider how important this rule is
for your business, and even your personal life.
80% of your efforts yield 20% of your results.
20% of the people own 80% of the wealth
80% of your income will come from 20% of your customers, or to
put it another way, 80% of your income will come from just 20%
of your work.
If you’re not going to stick your head in the sand, or up your own ass,
you will see just how powerful this is… and… how it can dramatically
change your fortunes.
And it’s going to have the biggest impact on your business, whether you
ignore it or not.
Obviously I could keep going on about these percentages until the pigs
come flying home, but I won’t.
Suffice to say. Whatever you’re doing right now, day in and day out, needs
to be seriously looked at more closely.
You see, my future marketing genius. If you work 8 hours a day on your
business, chances are you could achieve the exact same results in under
2 hours, providing you worked out what “exactly” brings you the best results.
This is why the big boys and girls are always telling you to test, test, bloody test.
Lesson for today…
I want you to get yourself a notepad and pen/pencil/blood/ – and I want you to
write out “daily did sheets”
What are D.D.S I hear you ask? Well, they’re exactly what they freakin say they
are. You write down every single thing you do for the next couple of days.
If you’re on Facebook for a half hour (write it down)
If you’re on YouTube (write it down)
If you write a blog post (write it down)
If you’re on forums (write it down)
If you have a crap (write it bloody down)
If you went to an expert looking to lose weight.
Chances are they’d ask you to keep a daily journal, where you write down
every meal you have. Every piece of food you eat… for one week.
The process is to alert you to the blind-spots you inevitably are missing when
it comes to food consumption.
Any person who does this is astonished by the amount of food they’re actually
eating. It’s a real eye opener. They genuinely can’t believe it.
The same goes for what “you” do (work wise) on a daily basis.
You are wasting half of your day on stuff unrelated to growing your business.
Like the fat person who’s mentally-blind to how
much food they’re cramming down their guzzet,
you’re unaware of how much time you’re “actually” wasting on tasks that don’t
move you closer to your goals.
Don’t underestimate the power of writing down exactly what you’re doing every
single day, and then reviewing it at the end of each day.
This will be a real eye opener for you – and something I know many
millionaire-marketers do consistently.
Do this daily exercise. You’d be a complete moron to ignore it.
I’ll chat to you tomorrow.
Have a great day.

P.S. While everyone else is running around looking for quick-tactics to help
them make money, we’re building a foundation.
No business can exist without structure-and-strategy.
Get this right first, and you’ll be head and shoulders above them all. Ignore
it, and inevitably you will be part of the 94% who never make it online.
Your choice my friend.
All the best.
Tomorrow we’ll discuss the two most important words in your business.
Can you guess what they are?
