Productivity Hack: Designing Your Life For "Optimal Defaults"


Human behavior typically follows the path of least resistance.

Make one option close and another option far away, a human will take the close option almost every time.

We can't help it, it's our "default".

What people don't know, is that you can design your environment so that the "defaults" we fall into are the ones that serve our goals.

Example: If you want to get out of bed on time, set the alarm on your phone and put it far away from your bed. This small environment change dramatically improves your likelihood of getting out of bed VS hitting snooze.

Agency Or Course? A Forensic Analysis Of Both Models (Pros & Cons)


Should you start a done-for-you agency or an online course?

Or... Should you start with an agency then do a course? Or both?

This is something that many entrepreneurs are torn between and perpetually confused about. Some people believe "selling courses" isn't a "real business" and that somehow, selling services is "real".

There's sayings like "those that can't do teach" and perceptions that everybody teaching courses can't do, and instead, they're scamming people by selling them fake instructions about doing.

This is a FASCINATING topic!

Why Does Your Business Exist? (Other Than Making Money)

Why Does Your Business Exist? (Other Than Making Money)


Why does your business exist other than for the purpose of making money?

This is the MOST important question you can ask!

And... What's scary is that most entrepreneurs don't have an answer to this question. The only reason their business exists is to make money for themselves.

What's wrong with this? Legally there's nothing wrong with this at all and people can do whatever they want! The problem is that these people will fail at making money and wonder "WHY?".

Money is a byproduct of value, when you create value you make money. And money isn't value. So you can't create money by trying to make money, it just doesn't work that way!

Ninja Shit -- Playing To The Biases Of Facebook's Algorithm


Sometimes people say things like: "Sam only shares simple, common sense advice, he never teaches anything advanced".

Today, mostly for fun, I want to share something advanced. (really advanced...).

Most of the time I share simple strategies anybody can use to make dramatic improvements to their life and business. I do this because 90% of the time, it's the simple things people are missing, and no advanced strategy is going to save them from a fundamental (but simple) mistake. Common sense is NOT common practice!

But today, fuck it. Let's go down the rabbit hole and twist some peoples minds.

Today's video is "Ninja Shit -- Playing To The Biases Of Facebook's Algorithm".

Death By 1,000 Cuts: How You Waste Time


Tired of moving slowly and getting pulled in 100 directions?

Tired of projects lying in limbo and not completing anything?

Chances are, you've suffered "death by 1,000 cuts".

It's the little things that waste our time and suck our energy dry. Its the "got a minute", "quick check" or "just this once" that sneak up on you and suffocate you.

The worst part is that you never see it coming because it disguises itself as a tiny task and we're standing guard for big tasks.

Stop Confusing Yourself -- Define The Problem And Solve It!


Confused? Frustrated? Not sure why you're doing what you're doing?

Confusion occurs when you don't know what to do.

To figure out what to do, you must first define what you want.

Once you know what you want, you can select what to do based on it's likelihood of achieving what you want.

Once you know what to do, you do it until you get what you want.
