In this morning's Pages, I found myself pondering the recently published clips episode of Impact Theory with Alex Hormozi. I heard Alex on the same show back in September last year and remember being blown away by the conversation. This time was no different.
One of the biggest takeaways for me was when Alex talked about wannabe entrepreneurs, saying, 'They mentally masturbate to watching lots and lots of videos... they think that exposure to information is learning, and I don't think that's true, at least it hasn't been for me... 99% of the things I've learned, I've learned from doing.' Tom calls it spiritual entertainment.
I'm certainly a candidate for this some of the time. I do create and put stuff out consistently. You're reading some of that stuff right now. But I fall short in business terms. I can do better.
Then there was Alex's quotation that, 'marketing is just a fancy nine-letter word for "test"'. I ended my Pages with that because I didn't want to forget it. This is another area where I fall short, although I suppose it's encapsulated in the business terms I mentioned above. So just a single point of failure then, haha.
And finally, there was the old Churchill quotation that Tom loves to drop: "Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm."
I actually think I'm doing okay in that regard.
