Man executes 80/20, then freaks out a little
Last week in my private Mastermind Forum, “Mister L” posted this question:
Hi Planet Perry,
I’m kinda freaking out and just need a little perspective from you seasoned veterans.
Bottom line as of today for 2013: my client base is down 23%; revenue is up 43%.
Now, I know that sounds great on paper. I know I should be doing naked cart wheels, but…
I’m freaking out a little.
The phone isn’t ringing as much.
These were long time clients that through my marketing I must of pissed them off, or “disqualified them”.
Again, it sounds great in a book, but these were long time clients that i really liked.
It’s just weird.
Plus, I’ve hired a full timer, and I’ve got all this free time.
So, I’m doing less work, and making more.
Again, I know on paper this sounds great. This is the “dream”, right?
But it doesn’t feel that way.
Maybe, I’m just missing the emotional rush of dealing with hundreds of things all at once.
Now, I’m focusing on 3 things at a time.
Again, I know this sounds great in theory, but to live it, well, it just feels weird.
Also, based on the Marketing DNA, I’m doing what I’m great at. Now, again, sounds great on paper, but I’m so used to doing work I hate that drains me, and I find it strange that I’m no longer “working”.
Like I’m doing nothing.
It’s like I was in 2nd gears for year, and now I’m in 4th. More speed, less RPM.
For those of you who’ve implemented 80/20 in your business and have transformed your business on little hinges, who’ve gone from doing shit they hate, to what you’re great at, can you give me a little feedback.
