This week’s focus point: I’m sure you’ve heard the apothegm, “The harder I work the luckier I get.” The hardest work for most of us is mental work. Oh, it’s rough to dig a ditch or build a foundation, no question, but it seems far more difficult for people to develop and monetize new ideas; harder to respond to a prospect’s objections; more wearying to create an outline for a new book! Physical labor is reduced and streamlined when it’s planned well and you have the right tools. The same applies to mental “labor.” Put the time aside, focus on the outcome desired, and obtain the right “tools”: coaching, technology, and research. Stop trying to dig your ditch in the rain with a rake without reason.
