Hope you all had a great day! Few weeks back I came across this great piece of words on the Noah Kagan‘s Blog, the OkDork.. wired name ha? but the guy has some really interesting articles for the entrepreneurs. He run the company Appsumo which they say as “A medley burrito of the greatest, geekiest products for entrepreneurs.” They promote and introduce the most innovative, creative, and practical stuff out there and aim to bring them to you, directly and affordable.
I have used some of their products for my freelance clients, and I would say they were all as good as they have mentioned. I would highly encouraged it to anyone who is planning of running their business or learn some great skills to get started with their Start-up.
In his article he mentions about his one weeks hangout with David Deida, who is a great author who wrote one of my all time favorite books The Way of the Superior Man it’s David Deida’s best-selling classic and the best book to get start as growing man who wants create a remarkable life. The point he mention is getting really good at something in life. This is my mission and one of the core drives of starting the Business which is based in United Kingdom but serves to clients worldwide and our teams is working from different geographical locations.
Noah mentions three from Armature to Professional:
1- Amateur – You try something out and give up or do it occasionally
2- Hobbyist – You do it regularly and maybe make money but you don’t do it consistently
3- Professional – You are doing the work even when you don’t feel like doing it.
I used to be in the first level so many times in my life. Started something and gave up on the way without achieving the results. But no more that person and wont ever be again.
Then I had moments of second level where I was Hobbyist. Got into new business sectors like selling on ebay or affiliate marketing and gave up or forgotten and got involved in different things. Did some writing for my friends websites and client projects and made money but wasn’t much serious about getting more and more from the Hobby Kind of work.
Now things are changed and I’m on my journey towards becoming the best I could be. As I mentioned earlier the story will later come with hands on life experience of hustling!!
Finally I thought I should mention the greatest story, the article gave at the end which is from non other than Mike Tyson!
It’s on Tyson mentioning how all of the greatest fighters EVER had lost at least one fight. And the point Noah brings is that “everyone starts somewhere and it’s the perseverance and practice that will separate out the winners from the losers.”
So in what area do you want to be the best you can ever be? And then write the plan of how you can get from Armature to Professional?
Would like to hear from you and get on with your futuristic business GAME.
