I have to say, sometimes remaining focused isn’t easy. It’s necessary with EVERYTHING in life because without focus (and knowing where you’re going) nothing gets accomplished.
I was involved in martial arts when I was much younger. Between that and the Game there’s one thing I learned. Discipline gets things done!
Things are moving along around here. I have a book signing coming up. The date hasn't yet been finalized but when it is, I’ll make the announcement.
Also later this year I have a couple Lectures and a Speaking Engagement coming up so if you’re in the Atlanta area come out and chop it up with a Player. I’ll make those announcements as well when those dates are sorted out.
The next big thing I’m working on though is a solo project. More Game coming at you. I thought you knew!
The project I’m currently working on here at “The Lab” is a video course.
The course covers the important principle of ‘value’ and how the entire Game spins around it. For a lot of my Players and Hustlers out there, this is the missing key that will take your Game to the next level. And for the average everyday person, it will change the way you look at yourself and how you fit in with the world around you.
Anyway… back to the point.
So I started, like I always start, with just an idea or a concept. I mentally play around with that idea and look at it from a few different angles to see if it’s worth my investment of time.
You creative people out there understand where I’m coming from. If those first ideas or concepts don’t move (motivate) you, the projects will either never see the light of day OR, when they get done, you’re not satisfied with them. Am I right?
I've started-up and dropped so many projects over the last 15 years of my life to know this... if it doesn't still move me a week or 2 after the first idea, then I'm better off not starting the project.
That’s one beautiful advantage about being a Hustler (solo-preneur), you can move on your own schedule (most of the time). And the creative process is not always the best process to rush.
Once an idea grows and ‘moves’ me, I hit the research phase. This process is both for the business side and the creative side. The end product must be worth something – it has to not only LOOK good but actually BE good.
Over the past 3 months I've been methodically putting this entire course together piece-by-piece. From concept, to design, creating graphical pieces, color choices, acquiring the necessary software, making sure the information flows in an easy to follow manner and I could go on and on.
The entire process is like taking a rough diamond and cutting it little by little until you can achieve the beauty and clarity of the gem.
During these times of creating, I usually lay off of social media (I missed a few Birthday shot-outs – I know, my bad!), watching television (which I really don’t watch anyway), listening to the radio and reading foolishness on the internet all because I know ME.
When I’m creating, I don’t like any outside influences creeping in. And also, things that affect my mood, affect my creativity. It’s frustrating trying to create when you’re frustrated or agitated. Does that make sense?
When you’re designing something that is coming from within you, it’s important to me that a person can “feel” you in the finished product. Your "mark" has to be all over it.
They should be able to say, “No one could have done it that way BUT him.” Every detail is important.
This post was just a heads up of what’s going on with me and what you can expect in the near future. Until the next time I hope you all are out there working on your goals, remaining focused and living your life with purpose.
More Game coming at you next week so stay tuned. Discipline gets things done people! Keep that in mind.
Stay on your grind.
