Since the Phoenix Mind is all about fuelling the fire of our lives, I’m taking part in Danielle La Porte’s Burning Questions series, especially now that the Tuesday Titbit series has finished. This week’s question and answer can be found here.
What is my favourite piece of advice… I have a few favourites, but the one I’ve been thinking about the most is by Gary Vaynerchuk:
“If you wanna do shit, work.”
The longer version of that is actually:
“Work 9-5, spend a couple hours with your family. 7 to 2 in the morning is plenty of time to do damage. But that’s it. It’s not going to happen any other way. You’re not going to make stickers and give out swag and everybody’s gunna give a shit about your site.
I got wrist bands. that is the key.”
“You do it after hours. You work 9-6, you get home, you kiss the dog, and you go to town.
You start building your equity and your brand or whatever you’re trying to accomplish, after hours. Everybody has time. Stop watching fucking Lost.
If you want this…
if you want bling bling…
if you wanna buy the Jets…
if you wanna do shit… work.
That’s how you get it.
That’s all I got. There’s just nothing else to say… I love you.”
Someone quoted that advice to me, and then I watched the video… and continue to watch it every time I need a motivational boost.
