MOVED – What We DO Matters Most


One of my favorite quotes comes from Zig Ziglar. He said “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly until you can learn to do it well.”

When I first read that I did a double-take. Do things poorly?

And then I saw it. Perhaps the #1 business lesson I have ever learned.

Doing matters more than knowing

For decades I bemoaned having only a high school education. I thought of myself as “less than” because I didn’t have that darned diploma.

I was wrong. Dead wrong.

What I didn’t know then, and do know now, is that I had been given a great gift. The gift of self-education.

You see, I had read hundreds of business books over the years, and had developed a knack for applying what I read.

I still learn, and grow, this way today.

The key is simple …

Use what you learn as soon as you learn it and be willing to fail forward.

So how does this apply to us today?

Rather than hunting for some new time management “system” or “replicated blogging plugin that will automate everything” I believe most people would be better off doing the things that are proven effective.

In the online business world that includes things like …

  • Building landing pages and squeeze pages
  • Blogging
  • Writing articles
  • Creating products
  • Promoting top products
  • Answering comments on your blog
  • Participating in discussions in your niche
  • Running ads
  • Writing great headlines and ad copy

The information we need is out there. Our job is to apply that information and to be willing to fall down and then get back up. Over and over again.

Here are four books to consider, and a very important question.

First, the books.

  1. The Power Of Positive Thinking
  2. How To Win Friends And Influence People
  3. Think And Grow Rich
  4. See You At The Top

Now the question – what would your life look like if you read these four books and faithfully practiced everything they teach for the next year?

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
