In my opinion the simplest answer to this question is from flow and not force.
Flow comes from a state of internal stillness while there’s external motion, whereas force comes from an internal and an external motion which creates erraticness.
When we’re still on the inside we’re able to just be in the now, which actually sounds like the opposite of all business. But It’s not.
We still work within the realms of the structure and the systems in business but from a place of non-reactivity, which comes from being in internal stillness. Then from this place we take action.
Being still on the inside allows us to collapse quantum timelines. We start to play outside of time because we’re not in the mind, and the mind only can see linear time. In fact linear time actually doesn’t exist. It is all an illusion.
It has been said that healing begins and ends where there’s no time.
Perhaps a question to ask yourself is: “What’s the weirdest thing I could do this year with my business?” Something that doesn’t seem possible. The etymology of the word “weird” is to pave your own path so what could you do differently?
Yet keep in mind Pareto’s Law which states that 20% of your actions yields 80% of your results.
You need to get really clear on what that 20% is because generally people spend all their time on things that aren’t cash-producing.
Tim Ferriss will ask his clients what they want to achieve in 10 years. He will then ask them how they could do that in 3 or 6 months. This forces them to think differently to find the solution.
And this solution will come from being still.
On the other hand, take Gary Vaynerchuk. He is against trying to do things faster. Instead he’s all about patience, and his mind is erratic on the outside and the inside.
So what works for one person doesn’t work for another.
The important thing is there’s something to learn from everyone.
Listen to different coaches until you find your own method and style, and what works for you.
It’s always good to have options.
