How fast is your rate of learning to doing?
I've recently discovered Alex Hormozi, and he keeps sticking the landing with amazing points. I mean, why wouldn't he, when he runs acquisition.com and invests millions into brand building.
Anyway, this video popped on my feed today, and he makes a solid point:
Yes, keep your weekend.
But thats not his point. His point is that most people don't implement what they learn fast enough.
We bookmark stuff. Make mental notes. Add it to a list of things to consider.
The difference between that and plenty of successful businesses is the rate of change and implementation.
It's like that quote that says to be perfect is to have changed often.
When most will nod enthusiastically and then do nothing, what about you?
Alex pushes us to create new deadlines. Can you do the new thing in a week? In two hours? Why not? Will it make things better? Why put it off?
Do you have a good reason to put it off?
What I liked about his terse tone is this insistence to stop procrastinating.
I used to think I was a terrible procrastinator. But in looking back st the last few years, its equally true that I was ‘weaponizing’ my ADHD, and barrelling from interest to interest.
If I learned something new and interesting, my default is to ask if its something that can help my work, and enthuse others.
If no, bookmark it till it makes sense or becomes an obvious no.
If yes, create a test case or a project to have fun with it, learn its limitations, and learn mine. The goal is to find my system, my strategy for getting it done.
Perhaps the project only lasts a while. Perhaps its an itch that I scratch briefly. But I think doing this over and over gave me confidence in myself.
Confidence to make decisions. To get stuff done and shipped. To test and learb. To drop or try again.
Keeping that loop tight from learning to doing is the best skill to learn if you're an entrpreneur.
Because you're small enough to evolve your efficiency and change tack depending on the wind.
Curious what comes to your mind. :)
