ACME Dynamite Never Works

Every once in awhile (less often than I would like to admit), I like to analyze what I’m doing. You know, take a quick check to see if what I’m doing in my business is working.

You really get an ego check in trying to run a successful business because on one end, you want to GSD (Get Shit Done) but at the same time, you want to make sure that what you are getting done is the right “S”

You see broham, I have dreams and aspirations just like you. My goal is to be running a million dollar business by next October.

Yeah that’s 6 zeros buddy.

2 years ago I wrote a check to myself for a million dollars and I put it up on my door so I know that’s what I’m working for every time I step out the door.

Since then, the stakes have gone up because of the birth of my son and I hate to admit that right now I’d have to move the decimal point a few places to get close to that.

In a way I’m worried, because I still make mistakes that are easily preventable and I keep having to start over on a few projects I’m working on for the winter and spring.

But on the same end, I’m confident, because unlike 2 years ago, when I used to just throw stuff up on social media and around town, I now use my time and resources to
Get feedback on my efforts, by collecting data from ads and emails (like this one you’re reading now). To see whats working instead of wasting

TIME waiting and HOPING FOR a good result.

It’s the same as fitness dude. I see people always latching on to the latest fad or the newest gimmick. Weighted hula hoops, Herbalife, CrossFit…the list goes on.

But the number one thing they are all lacking is personal accountability.

You see care bear, the $1,000,000 question is how do you get to your goal if you’re trying everything and not really doing anything.

It’s like when Wild E. Coyote would get all those road runner traps and spend so long setting them up only for them not to work and get painfully injured in the execution.

You see that road runner is our elusive goal and the only way we can catch it, is not with fancier traps, but with better execution.

The General Fitness Company, is the ultimate road runner catcher. I make goals easier to catch and then help you in plotting on bigger and tastier ones.

Don’t spend any more time or money on these diet traps or quick fixes. The only quick fix is to realize that those don’t work.

Ready to stop chasing those goals and actually catch them for once?

P.S. Road runner cartoons were actually my favorite. Watch this one where the roadrunner actually got caught:

War Games

I’m going to start this off by
Admitting that I was not on the ball today.
I was still riding high off of this week’s events and just couldn’t bring myself to get everything done.

What did me in you ask?

Well broseph, since my computer is down, I find that the next best thing to use is the Kindle that I am currently writing to you from.
On it, is a game that I downloaded a few weeks ago called Game of War

Now, I might be able to justify my playing time with a very important lesson that I was reminded of as I saw my city destroyed in a matter of 25 mins

As you might have already gathered,
This game is about war
And in war you have to have a strategy.
I mean after all, war is all about winners and losers and as they say in the military

If you don’t plan on winning you better be planning your funeral

A bit morbid, but yeah sunshine, it pretty much gets the point across

I lost my city in the game and later lost a big chunk of my work day because I set up a war that I didn’t plan on winning.

I just didn’t plan

Normally, I have an outline or a visual of how my day is going to go. If I have a lot to do, I might even write them down on a few of my white boards to help me remember (yes I have multiple white boards…)

This time, no dice
Didn’t prepare last night and now all my work is behind schedule and I’m writing this email as I cook dinner.

The moral of the story?

Obviously, I suck at video games…

Well sorta, if you want to get stuff done that won’t get completed right away, you have to have a plan

War, like fitness isn’t won or lost in a day.

You can have a great workout one day and skip the next two. Without some sort of structure or, ehem, program
You are almost certain to fail and that means
Your city is destroyed
You lose valuable work time
You get outta shape then
You get fat

All because you didn’t have a plan. Don’t get me wrong stud muffin. I’m sure you’re a smart person and probably a decent planner like me, but we all lose our way sometimes and need someone to guide us outta the trenches.

You might be tired of having to start over again or fighting to even start at all. We’ve all been there, that’s why I encourage you to try out my program
We’re starting up our 28 Day Fat Furnace in less than two weeks. This is a great time to join an awesome team of supportive individuals that will help you to go from where you are, to where you want to be

P.S. Here’s the link to the famous commercial that persuaded me to download the game. I like it for the horses and nothing else. I swear:
