Doing the hard work upfront builds momentum and motivation. Once you squash the elephant in the room, it’s a lot easier to move around and knock out the small stuff.

 

I always floss before I brush. Why? Because flossing sucks and is boring but it’s very important. I have a bridge and that requires a special floss and I have to floss twice which is twice as bad! But if I always floss first, the brushing is so much easier.

 

Taking care of difficult stuff makes you feel better and more energized. This will give you momentum and help you knock out those smaller tasks and then you can sit back and enjoy the rest of your day!

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 onto ified. Hey, guys, work in show Hope you ready? Ticket are terrified on this Thursday. Hey, we're gonna be talking about flushing flossing before you brush. It's kind of a weird title, but flossing before you brush. So I've really been thinking about lately and my business stuff. I've really been brushing and flossing because it's very important that you do it that way. You know, I remember I was sitting down with the dentist, if you must, back and I asked him. I said, Which one's more important? He said, Well, they're 50 50 and he says his preference and then he And then he made this really great point. He said, But if you floss before you brush, it's a lot like brushing is easy for me anyway. And if I floss first, I always brush my teeth. Afterwards, it's 100% successfully, but if I brush my teeth first, it's like a 25% sets rate that I'm gonna floss afterwards. because I'm lazy and I'm like, I don't want to do that Flossing sucks. And so So if you floss before you brush basically means if you knock out the hard work the hard stuff before you do the easier stuff these your stuff is. It's a joke, man. It's really a joke. So knocking out that hard stuff first, flossing first and then brushing is a lot easier. So doing the hard work up front, it just builds momentum. It builds motivation, and once, once you squash the elephant in the room, it's a lot easier to move around and knock out the smaller stuff, so kind of breaking that down. When you do the hard work up front, it builds momentum and motivation. Now there's another way you can argue this. It's a snowball effect, which is where you do smaller tasks throughout the day. So kind of build a moment, um, and knock out, too. And this twofold. There's there's two different ways, Um, and that approaches. You're knocking out many achievements in your calm, pounding the effects to be able to tackle the bigger one at the end of the end of the day or you know whenever in the method I think about is, well, if you do a lot of the hard work up front and knock it out, you're gonna have a lot of momentum and motivation. And it's just really it's just really like, OK, which way do you go? Which way to go? What do you do? And so when you look at a hard task like, let's say, for example, today, the hardest task for me is going to the gym because I really don't want to go. So if I do that up front and I go out here, I go for a little run. Don't two miles, 20 minutes. Nice, easy jog. And then I come back and then, boom, you know what? I'm set up for the rest of the day, Two things to only get easier from there. So my day just started off really hard. At least in my mind. It's really hard, and the rest of daisies and that gives me motivation frees up my mind, Thio think performed better, and so that's the way I like to approach it. I really hate to say that, but I gotta go run after this and uh, not looking forward to it, but I need to do it. I'm gaining weight like crazy. Not happy with way I'm looking. So I need Maur discipline in my life. It's definitely difficult thing to get. And I've definitely been trying the the small things and the big things has been working. It just hasn't been working. If I wake up and I say I'm gonna do the easy stuff, like journal, end of the day, I'm gonna go work out. It doesn't it never works. It's like a 25% success rate. But if I work out first in the day and then I do these your stuff throughout its 100% success rate, so you see what I'm saying? So I always foster for brush. Why? Because Fossen sucks. It's boring. That's very important. And I actually have a bridge, my mouth that requires some special flaws. You have to, like, push it in between like the you're too thin your gum not trying to go see anybody out. But it's a bridge, so basically just bridges your teeth and puts a tooth in the middle, and it requires special flaws. And at the Fost twice, So I had to do twice. The faucet have to do the bridge, the regular teeth, which is twice as bad a za regular flossing. But if I if I always floss first, the brushing Like I said, brushing my teeth is always 100 saying, given if I floss first and you really just try that. If you don't believe me, just try that method. Try floss first and brush next, and I guarantee you you will never You'll never miss it. And unless you're lazy like me, some days I'll be like, man, I don't do either one. I had a long day. I don't want it flies, I wanna brush. I just want to go to bed and watch my team, you know, wash the office with some stupid TV shows, you know, whatever. And some days that happens to me, may I just get lazy and tired. So main point is taking care of the difficult stuff. It makes you feel better, gives you energy, gives you momentum and helps you knock out smaller tasks. And then you sit back and coast for the rest of day and just knock out smaller things along the way. It's just a lot easier, you know, just knock out a lot of things. And I've really come to learn over the years that there's different things for different situations, different methods that work with different perspectives. There's different strategies. There's no one shoe fits all kind of, you know, for every situation. And I really learned that over the years because I used to think that weighs. You think, Oh, I have this methodology. It's gonna apply to every aspect of my life, my business, my success. But it turns out a dozen. It actually doesn't most the time. If you find something like this, you know, floss before you brush, Mine said, knocking out the hard thing first. That May may may work in your life, but that may not work in your finances. If you have four credit cards, one in 2001 and 2001 to 7000 I think it is smarter to do this snowball pay off the 1000 in the 2000 then the 3000 because it does give you hope. It does open your cash flow and then allows you to reinvest the payments into that next tier of debt that you owe. So like I said, there's two complete opposites. That's contrast ing the problem and those two solutions. So just breaking that out, if you're struggling financially, that is very good method. I recommend it. And, you know, like I say, if you're struggling with your day to day tasks, used the force for you Brush method. So big action step today identified the elephant in the room you may be avoiding and knock it out so there's two ways you can do that. You can try to eat elephant one bite at a time. That's the smaller tests. Or you can just go straight for the elephant and try to knock it out. You can try to just knock out that big task you have today. It may take a lot of energy, may take a lot of effort, but once it's over, you feel relief. You feel open to the day receptive, and you continue onward with your day in your life and have success. So hey, thanks solution to show today, guys, stay out there. Stay safe from this Corona virus is definitely pretty nasty stocks or bad personally and I'm cash heavy. I'm like, you know what?
