Oftentimes we only do things 90% of the way. This causes later regrets and issues in life. We make it to a certain point to where we needed that task completed 100% but because we fell short, we’re having to backtrack

I find myself only going 90% of the way on certain tasks and then having to circle back. I was doing laundry the other day and I noticed that I walk back and forth probably 10 times. I reevaluated my process and realized that if I just organize everything and then disseminate it, I can speed the process up considerably.

Stop doing a task halfway. It creates more work in the long run. If you focus on knocking out the task and you give 100% focus at the moment, you will not have to look back

 

ACTION STEPS – What have you done 90% of the way today? Go back and 100% it.

Are you ready to be entre vied? Let's break free of the life we're told to live, create freedom and well, by adding value to others live, challenge traditions, challenge authority and get entre fied. Hey, guys, welcome to the show. Hope you ready to get all terrified. And what does that mean exactly? Well, it just means you're ready to become an entrepreneur. You ready to grow your business, Your bottom line, You ready to be more creative and expand your mind beyond just working one job making one income? Because that is a recipe for failure. As we're learning from this Corona virus situation, many people that depend on one main source of income are losing it. And guess what? You got nothing. So on Terrified is making you successful by helping you become an entrepreneur. Create multiple cash flows that feed all into one. So they I'm gonna be talking about how if you give 100% you don't have to look back kind of talking about cash flows and all this stuff money. Well, if you give 100% on your budgeting and you have a really solid budget, really solid plan, you don't have to look back. So, like, right now, a lot of people are having a look back and be like, Well, I'm broke because my job's been affected by this global crisis. Um, yeah, that's not a good way to live at all. And if you give 100% you don't have to look back me personally, not trying to brag, but I'm not affected. I don't plan to be affected. I mean, I I'm comfortable where I am. I don't have to worry about no money, no job. That's fine. I've created multiple flows that way. I can, you know, live off each one. And that way, if one gets shut off, guess what I got 34 more over here, backing me up so we'd rather make $5000.1 place or $5000 from five different places. I mean, it's it's just risk management, you know, sprawling out. There's pluses and minus two each way you look at it, but yeah, today, me talking about how often times we're only doing things 90% of the way. This causes for later regrets and issues in life. So we make it a certain point where we needed that task completed 100% but because we fell short, we're now having to backtrack. I mean, I've done this on a couple things I remember. I went to college for, like, five years, didn't finish my my degree. And I was like, Okay, and now I have to go back, back track, re deal with all that crap and finish it. And it was stupid. It was like, Okay, I should have done this in the first place, but I was discouraged. I don't want to go anymore. I kind of left. And I should have fought through that. It should have more discipline and being able to say, Look, do you 90% of way where you stop it? Why do you stop it? And that's really hard to be. No. Have perseverance to keep going, to have that grit to finish something 100%. I mean, really, But but really think about when you do something 100% man, it feels good. Like, let's say, you know, let's see you go to college, get the batch degree and whatever. Yeah, you're gonna feel great. I mean, you got it. You knocked it out. Now people do look back and say, Well, I could have done a different degree path, whatever. But if you gave 100 per cent, you really tried, You really knew what you were doing. You're probably not gonna look back and you're probably gonna keep moving forward. And that's that's what I've done. I said, okay. They degrees useless to me. I mean, I don't care about computers anymore. I care more about different aspects of life, but I'm not. I don't regret it. Like I couldn't want different routes. But this is right. I went I'm okay with it. My life is going great. I'm gonna keep going. You don't need to go back. I don't need to backtrack. I gave 100% of college, knocked it out. So I find myself only going understand the way out certain tasks, and then I have to circle back. I mean, you how depressing. And that is that they circle back and go back and redo something or pick back up means stupid. So I was doing laundry the other day and I had noticed that I walked back and forth probably 10 times. Maybe because I was just like Oh, pair socks. Okay. Photo, pair of socks. I'd walk over, put one piece in the drawer. I'd walk back for a pair of socks, walk over, put in the drawer. Super inefficient, super inefficient. And then I realized, OK, what if I just sit here and do all this and wants? And then when I'm finished, disperse it to where it needs to go and yeah, I mean, I don't do laundry much, but when I do it, it's like, Okay, this is a way better method instead of taking me, like, two hours on tasting like 30 minutes. And so because I'm 100% and I dispersed everything, broke it up, took it out. What was going on? I completed it. I didn't go back. I didn't take any breaks. That's one of the big problems I have is taking breaks. I'll be like, Yeah, you know, I'm working on something, you know? I'm gonna take a break, take a break. I'm 90% of way through, take a break in 90%. That doesn't make any sense. And so it's important that you really you really say okay, I'm 90%. I'm gonna finish this if you knock it out, you know, just knock it out. So I re evaluated my process for the laundry, like I said, And then when I had the same disseminated all it was like, Wow, this makes so much more sense. And so it made me think, What else in life can I can I go 100% the way through with and make it easier? Like what? What can I I do and just knock out in one go and make it easier? Like so I like to make, like, one trip to town, like, let's say I go to town. Okay, go to the grocery store. I go to the beach, I go shopping and I go back home. You know, I do off for those things and I'm living in Florida for next two months. So that's kind of like my schedule, um, before I go back to Nashville, but yes oh, I that's the kind of the cycle that I run and, ah, that that that way I'm not halfway doing stuff because, like I said, once I sit down, it's like, OK, I'm not doing anything else, and that's not a good way to be. You want 100%? Complete our task for the day. So main point today. Stop doing test halfway. Just just don't do him have way. If you're gonna start it, finish it. Increase more work in the long run because you have to circle back, redo this part of circle back, do this part. But if you focus on knocking out the task and you give 100 focus in the moment, you won't. You won't have to look back. You won't have to look back and say, Oh, man, I forgot to do this. We're gonna do that. You won't be worried about it. Let's say you do something and you fix somebody's car. I don't know. You change your tire and you didn't give 100%. You didn't screw up both on all the way. Now you're worried about it going home, and now they're They're tire, they lose the bolt. Okay, guess what? Now they have to go back, re address that problem. But if you would give 100% and knocked it out, they wouldn't have to do that. It would be over then move on. But because you only went, you know, 90% of the way. Now they're having a backtrack and redo all over again. So definitely not a good method is to do things. You know, halfway, I'd like some definitely bad about it. If I say, like I'm going to the gym and I go to town, I go to the beach, hang out of beach for a little bit because that's what I'm about to go due here in a minute, digging in the sand. I don't know why I like the dig. Sand. It's really fun. I'm the guy with the shovel, like with little kids, like over there shoveling dirt. I don't know why. It's just my favorite thing in the world, but so I'm going to go do that. And it's like, if I come back here and I don't go to the gym, I'm not gonna leave that like I'm not gonna leave for. Probably arrest the day after dinner town. I'm gonna be like, Okay, I'm done for the day. I'm just gonna say inside all day for the rest of day. I played outside for, like, three hours at the beach. Okay, so why am I gonna go back out and go to the gym. You already took a shower to get the the water off me. So if I would If I go 100% and I say I'm gonna go to the beach, I'm gonna go to the gym. I'm gonna knock everything out in one. Go. I'm not gonna have to look back. I'm not gonna have to regret the flow of my day. I'm gonna be happy with where it went. And so today's action step. What have you done? 90% of the way. Go back in 100% so I don't know when you guys did something that you did in 90% away, they go back and finish it. So re about re evaluate your life, value your life, be like, Okay, What am I doing today? They did. I'm only doing 90% of way that I need to take it to the end zone lining to finish it. Because that that one yard man, that's a big difference between being finished and not being finished. No, you can't. Yeah, Close is well, How's it go close. Like second. It only counts of hand grading hand grenades and horseshoes. Like close. So don't. Don't just be close, be accurate, be precise and knock it out. Knock it out. Give 100%. That way, you can clock it out, forget about it and move on to the next thing. Because if you have too much junk in your mind, that is 90% of the way it's going to start the way you down and it's gonna take up space in your brain. I mean, I have that happen a lot. I'll be having things I should have done days ago. I'm still thinking about today. There's one thing actually, I just remembered that I need to do right now, and it sucks, because now I'm frustrated because I don't want to do it. But I have to do it today, like, right now. So go do their thing right now that you need the knockout and give 100%. That's what I'm about to go do right now. I have a shirt, I need iron. And I'm gonna need it for Monday. And I keep putting it off and putting it off. I'm gonna knock it out. Okay? Think solutions show Today, guys go 100% something All right, Take it easy. Are you feeling entre fied yet? We hope so.
