How To Get Things Done
This world is full of unaware people
You want to do something big?
You better get with the program.
I’m telling you, most people have no idea what’s going on.
Someone once told me, “Tim, there’s three types of people in the world. First type of person makes things happen. The second type of person watches things happen, and the third type of person wonders what happened.”
I promise you, most people are the third type, they wonder what’s happening. That’s the category most people are in, no curiosity, they’re just blah and live a meager existence stopping once in a while to wonder what happened to them.
I like to think that I’m an observant person. And some people today in business got me thinking: “What planet are you on, man? Like, where are you? Come down to earth. Be focused. Be practical!”
These days you can’t get people to focus for five minutes on something. Don’t get me wrong, I love entertainment. I love playing video games, but there is a time for everything.
There is a time to stop and smell the roses, and the time isn’t right now
All people want to do today is stop and smell the roses.
No one wants to get down, focus and become aware of their situation. People are literally broke, and they don’t want to admit it.
People spend all their time complaining about the government.
What planet are you on?
You honestly think any president, Trump, Obama or Bush, is gonna fix your finances? They do minor policy changes that might get you a little bit bigger of a tax break, but that’s it. You think that’s gonna change your life?
Nope. Come back to planet Earth.
Focus your attention on what you have direct control over, in the NOW.
No matter what, seek awareness!
In many ways, it’s a lot simpler than people make it out to be.
People are like, “Tim, what got you off the couch? What made you successful?” Number one step, awareness.
It’s like what they say in Alcoholics Anonymous, one of the first steps is admitting you’re an alcoholic. People won’t do that. They won’t be aware.
People drink all the time, and they won’t admit they’re an alcoholic. If you’re an alcoholic, just admit it. Then you can move on. If you’re broke, admit it and move the hell on to the next phase.
If you don’t and you’re not aware in a practical, focused way, then guess what?
You can’t build when you don’t realize there’s a reason to build
Some people are broke, and sometimes it’s not their fault.
Trust me, I didn’t grow up rich, but some people just spend more than they make. Who is gonna fix that? Sometimes you gotta be aware of your bank account and just go, “Hmm, I spend more than I make.”
Admit where you honestly are without blaming everybody else. Just remember, nobody really cares about you except you. Trust me.
When the going gets hard, if you’re in the hospital or you need a loan, most of your friends and acquaintances are not gonna come visit you in the hospital.
A few will. Most won’t.
Most people are not gonna loan you money.
A few will. Most won’t.
You gotta bootstrap it yourself, that’s the world we live in, and some people don’t like it.
Complaining won’t solve your problems
Look at social media.
All people do is complain. I’m like, if people spent half the time that they complain on social media and actually focus on their own life, they might not be complaining anymore.
A lot of people drag their feet, and it all stems from this lack of awareness, so step your game up!
