I just signed up for a new program this weekend. I'm reading through the "Get Started" guide.
Lo and behold, on page 6, there is a statement that is exceptionally powerful, even though it has nothing directly to do with the program.
"Eliminate all distractions. Unsubscribe from every Internet marketing newsletter that is not critical to your success with _________."
Do you know I've wanted to give this advice to you, dear reader, but haven't had the guts to say it?
I haven't had the guts to say it... because... I haven't yet followed the advice myself. I've unsubscribed from many lists in the last year, but I've never "finished the job."
Now I feel like I have permission. So tomorrow will be my reckoning day. I'll be following this advice. Will you?
Simply fill in the blank with "copywriting" or whatever skill area it is you're trying to succeed in. Then start pruning your email with the unforgiving force of a machete. The key, after all, is to eliminate ALL distractions.
