How to Work Consistently
I’ve gotten two emails in the past month about how to get more work done.
Rather then reply to each individually I’m just going to post my answer in the form of this blog post.
There are no shortcuts in life. Period.
I don’t feel like addressing them each individually, so here’s a blog post for everyone instead.
How do you do it bro?
How do you pump out all this content while working 65 hours a week?
I don’t think about it.
I just DO IT.
The ideas transfer from my head, to my hand, to the pen, to the paper, to the keyboard.
I don’t overthink it.
I don’t over complicate it.
I don’t make excuses or tell myself one more video game, one more hit of my blunt, one more beer.
I just DO IT.
I pull the trigger and force myself.
You can come up with a million excuses not to get started but it only TAKES ONE BURNING DESIRE TO IGNITE A FIRE.
I don’t set it off to a future date.
I give myself a mental command and then force myself to act on it.
The command is : “DO IT NOW!”
I pull up word-pad, I put my fingertips on the keyboard and I start writing.
I love grinding. I love working 65 hour weeks at my job, and as much as I can on this blog.
While other guys are nursing hangovers, chugging beer and celebrating mediocrity, I am on my grind. I am building.
The question is not how I am grinding?
The question is WHY?
1)Life is a Competition: That is Why You Must Work
Many people have forgotten a simple, core truth about life.
Life is a competition.
Don’t ever forget that.
You are competing against every other man on this planet (as well as every woman – lesbians for bisexual women, and ALL women for money.)
You’ve got to constantly bring that thought to the forefront of your awareness.
Because life is a competition , there are winners and there are losers.
Which man is going to win, and which man is going to lose?
Which man is going to get the honey and the money?
Which man is going to succeed? Which man is going to fail?
Which man is going to sleep with the girl? Which man is going to sleep with his hand?
Because life is a competition, you must focus on becoming the best version of yourself you can be.
That is the only way you will stand a chance in the dating market, the social market and the job market.
That’s not the feel good message people want to here, but it’s the truth.
You’ve got to hustle.
At the end of the day, the less you work, the less you respect yourself.
2) Life is Suffering – So Choose the Best Sacrifice
Life is suffering. We all have to work, we all have to grind, we all have to slave away.
at the end of the day.
The enlightened individual, knowing that life is suffering seeks to reduce suffering as much as possible.
You might as well get as much work as you can done when you are young and healthy.
You’re not gonna have this boundless energy and fast cognition forever.
Sooner or later you get OLD.
Your body starts breaking down. You start forgetting stuff.
Your thinking slows down. You leave your prime.
We live in an instant gratification society.
People want pleasure and they want pleasure NOW.
Thanks to the internet and smartphone they have access to unlimited pleasure at their fingertips.
Guess what though?
Instant gratification is poison. Just like a drug.
It feels good in the moment.
In the long run, instant gratification causes nothing but pain and disaster.
I would know. I spent 5 years pursuing instant gratification and living moment to moment.
I could have invested that time and seen a return on it. Instead it was spent, with no hope of return, with future me footing the BILL.
The best possible sacrifice you can make is grinding your ass off now and working hard.
You do that so future you can have a better life ten to fifteen years down the line.
So you aren’t crying about being a broke 38 year old bum who women don’t want to fuck and men don’t want to be associated with.
4)Stimulants are Work’s Best Friend
Disclaimer :Legal Stimulants Only. I would never condone someone illegally buying coke, amphetamines or meth because of a post like this.
My two favorite stimulants are Coffee, and modafinil/adrafinil.
Coffee is nature’s alertness aid.
Modafinil/adrafinil is science’s alertness focus aid.
Combining the two is like rocket value for productivity.
I Combine both and transform from Mr.Mediocre to Mr.Workaholic.
Before I began taking modafinil/adrafinil I was Mr.Mediocre.
I always focused on pursuing instant gratification – music , videos, the internet, video games.
It might be undiagnosed ADHD.
It might just be the fact that you’re parents never taught you discipline, work ethic, structure or any good habits and didn’t give a shit about you.
5)You Must Become Develop a Single Minded Obsession with Money and Productivity
It took me 27 years on this Earth to develop a good work ethic. I now typically work 65 hours a week, using the rest of my precious time to work on this blog.
I want to provide you, the reader with valuable content you can use to improve your own life.
I want you to read my blog posts and be motivated to KICK ASS, TAKE NAMES and GRIND.
I can honestly say that I am now obsessed. I’m not obsessed with worthless video games and purposeless activity like I used to be.
I am now obsessed with money. Making as much of it as I can. Making the most of every minute I can.
Being as productive as I can. Being the best version of myself.
You’ve got to develop a burning white-hot obsession within you.
That obsession screams at the very depths of your soul.
“I HAVE TO BE RICH” Nothing else is going to cut it.
It’s now or never.
I’ve wasted enough time screwing around.
The time for talk is over. The time for WORK is NOW.
6) Stop Celebrating Mediocrity and Start Grinding
Your mediocre friends want you to take it easy and party with them all the time.
You need to politely tell them to fuck off. You don’t have time to celebrate.
You are too focused on your mission. You need to be on your grind.
There will be plenty of time to celebrate when you are successful.
The time to celebrate, get drunk , smoke weed, fuck and party at the bars and clubs all night is AFTER you have achieved success.
Unfortunately, most people reverse this and celebrate being an average loser.
There will be plenty of time to party after you achieve success.
You can’t afford to party your valuable time away until you’ve achieved your goals.
Life is short. You must stop making excuses.
Stop over complicating a simple truth.
There are no shortcuts.
The way is the shortcut.
Everything else is a lie.
The way to do the work is to start immediately , focus on the task at hand and keep going.
Keep going no matter what. Let nothing STOP YOU.
No distractions, no phone calls, no food.
The time is NOW.
