Efficiency

It is important to note, this does not mean you will live a life without consequence, it means that you will no longer have an excuse of “obligation to someone else”. This means every action you make is going to directly impede or help your future success and the only person you get to reward or blame is yourself.
To wrap up on the obligation piece, this is not “cold hearted”. It is much more cold hearted to donate your time and help 20 people when you could have donated several hundred thousand dollars (or even millions!) that will help thousands of people instead.

Self-doubt is normal and is something you will have to learn to deal with. But. If something “pumps you up” then you’re being sold something on the back-end. Stop consuming it. Reading about the struggles of someone else will not benefit you. If you need to read stories like this… it means you’re not taking your own life seriously.
Finally, to wrap up this point, when you’re getting into higher risk situations the only thing that will help you perform better is preparation.

To simplify this even more, social media should *not* be used to keep tabs on other people. It should be used to build up a brand and sell a product. Otherwise it was a colossal waste of time that would be better spent working for minimum wage.
For television, the point is quite simple. Every single hour spent on television is lost income while you watch someone else do their job/career. It makes no sense at all. If you run the math it becomes even sadder.

Find a single person who wants to succeed as badly as you do and make sure you keep in contact for at maximum one time per month.
If you can find a single person willing to give 60-80+ hours of effort per week, the chances that you both make it will be magnified. You’ll likely hit different hurdles and a thirty minute conversation once a month will help jump over those issues each time.
Importantly, you should choose different industries, this makes it impossible to compete down the line. In the long-run? Your questions will cease as the issues become too specific (a good thing).

If you’re young, you get the privilege of testing how far your body can go and once you actually break down (once) you’ll know exactly where the line is.

To reiterate, as you try out different fields, you’ll only keep a list of items where *other people* tell you that you’re good.

In short, sales is the *most* transferrable skill you will ever learn. Every single second you spend improving your salesmanship will give you a 100x return (our exaggerated assumption!).

You will likely need to trade time for money at a very early age in life (covered later in this book). However. All of your free time will be spent on a scalable business. A scalable business that is worth your time has two attributes: 1) recurring income and 2) a large addressable market.

If you’re serious about moving up, you’re not going to have time to spend thousands of dollars on fancy clothing, cars and bottle service (for now). When you’ve got enough money to never work again, you can spend as much as you like.

Don’t worry about “over training” for your cardiovascular health if you can’t run three miles yet. So on and so forth.

Unless you’re a professional sports player, your goal is to find a way to profit off of the effort of others.

Take a good look at everyone you talk to on a daily basis and ask if they are moving up. If they are not? You should move them out of your life. Take a good look at each contact and make this decision.

By making decisions fast and on our own we can train our brains to create a decision making filter based on the premises outlined above. Unless the decision will be life changing (rare items such as the decision to attend college, new career to take, deciding to have a family etc.) we should train our own instincts because it is a real and learnable skill. Good instincts will help you in the future as you develop “on your feet problem solving skills” as the suits will tell you and it will prevent you from becoming a bottle neck in any organization. If you can’t develop good instincts you can never lead.

Snapple facts, motivational stories and reading are not going to help you unless you can learn something to *apply* in your day to day life. Once you apply the information by taking action, you’ll also find out if you’re good at the task… which is the only learning that you should care about.
At the end of the day, until information is applied it has no value. If you do not have the *potential* to reach the top 10% (at minimum) in the new task you’ve decided to try, it should be dropped.

The rough guideline for looks is known as the golden ratio with the following rough metrics: Measure your wrist measured at connection point to arm. Chest: 6.57x; Waist: 4.57x; Hip: 5.57x; Thigh: 3.43x; Bicep: 2.43x; Neck: 2.43x; Calves: 2.29x; Forearm: 1.86x.
With your ideal metrics largely in place, we suggest picking up a sport for recreational purposes. This does not need to be daily as you will simply use the commitment to make sure you’re involved physically and don’t decline at a rapid rate over night.
If you have a hard time motiving yourself, then you’re going to choose the morning and if you’re already a gym rat, go ahead and push it into the evening giving yourself more motivation to finish all of the work you intended to do before hitting the gym.
[Workout 4-6 days/week, 4×6 for maintaining, 5×5 for gaining, compound lifts]
“if you’re working out consistently you can eat as much healthy food as you like”. Unless you’re trying to achieve an elite physique past the top 10% or so, you’re allowed to eat as much as you like. The key is that you’re sticking to a diet that is lower in carbohydrates and does not include “cheat meals” for sugary items such as candy bars and cake.
In the morning it is best to load up on proteins. Lunch is typically a good time to eat slightly “less healthy”. Generally speaking, faster foods typically have more carbohydrates. This is fine as long as you’re continuing to exercise aggressively (5 days a week). What type of carbohydrates are you allowed to eat if you’re going to consume them? We stick with just two: brown rice and quinoa.If you’re eating healthy you can eat *almost* as much as you like. Eating vegetables, beans/legumes, lean meats, egg whites, fish, fruits and a small amount of carbs (brown rice/quinoa) should create a good self-fulfilling diet. Overall, we would recommend having only one meal with carbohydrates (this would be either lunch or dinner).
There isn’t much to weight loss. You can simply avoid all carbohydrates and exercise aggressively. While we don’t suggest doing this, a quick search will reveal that a zero carbohydrate diet combined with a lot of exercise will work.
[Drink fish oil, eat blueberries, juice green veggies, lemon/lime in water in morning, matcha for antioxidants, coffee only for certain situations “borrow energy from the future”, carrots and tomatoes to improve skin, take vitamin d, avoid sugar except for fruit]

unless your body is already in the rough ideal, there is absolutely no reason to waste your money on nice clothing. This includes brand names and custom clothing.

Remember that every minute wasted waiting for a task to be done (where you can’t be productive) is time you’ll never get back.
Your calendar should be stacked on a daily basis. You’re not planning your life in broad strokes, you should have commitments that you review once a month to reorganize appropriately. If you find that you always have downtime at the end of the day where your schedule is no longer packed, review your morning routine. Can you leave one item for the end of the day and adjust your sleeping pattern? Can you respond to all personal items at the end of the day and ignore them from morning through afternoon? Make the changes.
Try shaving ten minutes out of every physical item you do on a daily basis. ex: Auto renew all necessary items into a monthly or bi-weekly shipment reducing the need to go out for basic goods
⁃ Pay for a maid once a month or twice a month⁃ Pay for laundry services consistently or once a month depending on your schedule⁃ Pay for an errand runner once a month to take care of items during a busy week⁃ Pay for car service if you’re running an extremely tight schedule and cannot miss a beat (unlikely ever needed but many of you may become CEOs!)

Talent just like willpower can actually improve and you can become more talented over time. 99% of people will not attempt to become good at anything and that alone will thin the field for you (they give up within five years). If you’re worried that the vast majority of people will wake up and suddenly start working hard, we’ll go ahead and guarantee you that it won’t happen.

Other people (not family and friends) must tell you you’re good at it, or you must be in the top 10% in the nation at the task if it is a measurable item.

Importantly, it should be clear that we’re implying the most important skill in life to even find your intellectual abilities is *will power*. If you develop an immense amount of will power which is a skill that can be improved upon you will find a way to succeed. You can score mediocre in every single category. But. If you have immense will power, the competition will fall off a cliff shortly.

Predicting the actions of another person, not what they say but what they will do, is an invaluable skill that will prevail over the next 40+ years.

You’re going to simply take a topic you know extremely well and ask a person (friend or new acquaintance) “Hey I don’t know anything about XXX can you tell me about it?” Then see how long it takes for them to start making up information.
Hand Out Harmful Personal Information. This means you take one piece of information that would be “bad” if people knew about it and see if it gets leaked. The trick is to make sure you only tell one person. The second trick, if you want to lean on the safe side, is to give out information that really isn’t true. By doing this you’ll be able to build up character qualities of people you trust.
It seems that insecurity is one of the defining traits of humans in general. It takes many years to decrease this nagging problem and most never get rid of it. Instead, we should recognize this as the greatest market opportunity. This is why beauty products sell the best to women and “get rich quick” scams sell extremely well to men.
If you want to obtain advice about topic X simply find someone that is within your current network of contacts and ask them for advice. Once you take the advice, send them a letter saying thank you and *showing* you took their advice. Show them the before and after result… what your results looked like before and after their recommendation. Now that you’ve proven you listen to their advice and it worked, you’ve given their ego a huge boost and you’ve also created a contact who will happily help you in the future as well. It works practically every single time.
Importantly, if you’re finding the five steps easy to complete, we have no doubt you’ll be extremely good at sales. This can be online sales, B2B sales, real estate sales and even Mergers and Acquisitions (selling a Company – See section on Career).

Similar to predicting actions and sales, synthesis is the second unspoken form of intelligence. In short, you’re probably a fantastic person when it comes to “networking”. Why? You can quickly make a connection with someone. You synthesize his or her skills and put them in contact with the right people to fulfill their needs. (transaction complete!)
Can You Predict Which Friends Will Like One Another?
Ask questions surrounding items that most people lie about and *mentally* write them down. In a year or so, yes this takes commitment from you, ask the same set of questions and they will likely have lied about a handful of them. The number will change or the story will change dramatically (humans have terrible memory). Now the question is if you can recall roughly what was said and immediately realize it doesn’t add up. If so you’ll be good at synthesizing data in meetings, giving you a large leg up in predicting which company has problems and which one does not.
Write down the industry you know well and calculate the next strategic move that specific company/team/industry will make. If you correctly predicted that Facebook would acquire WhatsApp or Instagram you’re a genius. If you can do this on a small scale (predicting what type of home your friend will buy) then you have a knack for synthesizing personality and fit for a specific sector.
You should read multiple reports during your spare time on an industry you’re interested in. This is how synthesis intelligence is built, through compounding information. As you learn more and more statistics about a specific industry find the data that conflicts. Figure out why it conflicts and where the error is. If you’re able to do this without combing through the data 5-6 times over and over again you’re going to have a knack for synthesis (a skill that can be learned!).

Why in the world does everyone assume that being good with numbers is the end all be all of intelligence? Now you have the answer. It is nearly impossible to find this type of talent. This is both a blessing and a curse if your skills lie in numerics.
Fortunately, if you’re good with numerics, you can quickly see if this is your talent because the stair steps are clearly laid out for you.
1) Are you blowing through the math section of your SAT
2) After blowing through these exams did you step on the gas pedal through an elite university? IE: you were not studying hard yet landing A-‘s or better in complex courses?
3) Can you read a statistics report and immediately laugh at the findings?
4) Did you get through the 5+ round process to work at Google, Facebook or as a Quant? (obviously you’re good!)

Importantly, this means your average college is a complete scam. If an individual could reduce their debt load to the $40K range and see an income of $80K the spread is now ~$50K. Now your break- even is around one year (reasonable and a good investment).
There is no way to justify the cost benefit analysis of attending a four year university where you accumulate $100K in debt and obtain a 9-5 job (if you’re lucky) that pays $45K/year.
Only a fool wouldn’t maximize every single hack he could to obtain entrance into a Top 50 University. We know that the system currently favors “I want to save the world and I’m a great human being by society’s definition” type applications.
We emphasize breaking the rules not the law. That is always our stance. If you’re certain that saying XYZ will help you get in and there is practically no way to check it, go for it.
In a single sentence: Do the bare minimum to get a 3.7 GPA, focus all other time on getting work experience and building an online business.

The best recommendation is software related engineering. More specifically, become involved in robotics, artificial intelligence, machine to machine learning (“Deep Learning”) or a high operating income software company. Since the future is going to be heavily software, it makes more sense to go in this direction. You’ll find more and more companies hiring for these positions and you’ll find yourself developing transferable skills.
In short, follow the top-line Revenue Growth and the Profit per Employee (Cash Flow).

At the end of the day, working for someone else will not be sustainable. It is not smart to put your life in someone else’s hands. They have no attachment to you and are more than happy to get rid of you if they’ll net a long-term profit.

Now that we’ve convinced you to start a business, we also note that we are on the side of selling anything legal that works. This means “how” you sell the item is irrelevant. If you’re selling an enterprise software product and it works, we don’t care if you sell it by using spammy messages, by using direct traffic or cold calling. It does not matter how you sell.

The real question is “Why do people buy?”. Forget about the product’s value. The vast majority of products in the market have comparable functionality. Coke and Pepsi are not that different. Smartphones are becoming largely homogenous. Your favorite brand of clothing likely has a peer with mirroring designs. Again. “Why do people buy?”The Answer: Insecurity or Emotion is why they click BUY.

Take a step back. Instead of asking what’s in demand ask “What emotion or insecurity does this target”. You will change your target market dramatically. If you want to be rich (you deserve to be rich), then you have to target an innate insecurity/fear.
You’re going to sell high margin products in the sector you choose. There is no “best sector”. But. People are going to ask for specific examples so here are a few: skin care, perfumes, diet pills, anything “brand name”, electronic content and all high ticket priced items (homes, equipment, anything with a sticker above $10K).
In short, you’re going to sell online and you’re going to buy traffic when you have narrowed down your target market. We are advising you to target insecurity & fear.
Just don’t be foolish enough to tell your customers that you know they are at the bottom of the totem pole. Sell the items and keep them hyped up (emotionally charged) and highlight every single possible success story you can.

Consumable revenue will make you rich. Recurring, Platform or Licensing revenue can make you rich (faster). This is typically revenue associated with software companies but it can be applied to many other companies such as Netflix or even Facebook (since each user has to login to Facebook to get access to content).

The Framework: Stories sell. This is why you should frame all of your ideas into stories: 1) problem that your customer has, 2) how you solved it, 3) what are the results of the solution and 4) why it is different. After that your *must* have a call to action to purchases/sign up. People complain all of the time and these are simply opportunities for part number 1. Help come up with a solution to the common complaint, explain how you came up with it and got results then follow through with the close *buy this*. If you can internalize this framework it will make all of the products you’re selling 100x easier. (This is a standard and well known framework)

Story, Example, Tell (“SET” Framework): The goal of your entire message is to relate to your specific target audience on an emotional level by telling your Story. After this you provide Examples of the benefits you found from the solution being offered… followed by Telling the audience the reason to buy and of course to click purchase.

We’ve stated this a hundred times both here and on the blog. The key to keeping your text emotional is to keep everything more conversational (Google right brain functions). There is a reason why Donald Trump used basic words and phrases (increases audience and has more emotional appeal). Tell the customer to *imagine* what it would be like if they bought your product since it would solve XYZ problem.

While it is true that a lot of good sales pages come from pleasure (desire for pleasure or pain) we have seen higher conversion rates from fear/pain vs. pleasure. So we’re biased and are going to highlight a few words to try when using this angle: Avoid, Challenge, Dangerous, Imagine (when referring to removal of pain), Last Chance or Last Second, Remove, Right Now (a classic), Security (classic fear of loss focuses on security), Survive, Uncover (similar to discover).

The first paragraph is the most valuable paragraph on the main page. It should capture a lot of attention or connect with them emotionally (always target pain) so they read the first paragraph.
Strategies include:
1) Asking a question such as “Do you find yourself doing XYZ (insert activity)?”
2) Making the first sentence appeal to a pain point (noticing a trend?)
3) Using a leader at the end such as “you’ll be surprised to see the answer to this and other problems have been discovered” (XYZ will shock you!)
4) Avoid using the words “I or My” and stick with the word You to make a connection
5) Stagger out the offering to avoid losing people who are cynical/negative such as “you could save/earn $50, $200 or even $500” to capture the full span of attention
As a final note, you should spend at least 20x more time making sure the title & first paragraph are perfect given that the vast majority will not go past paragraph one.

After the title, paragraph/headline are all set, you can move on to more normal tactics such as: testimonials, case studies, free gifts, limited supply.

In short, the product doesn’t need to add a lot of value. Your product simply needs to make the person feel good and avoid any sort of pain (do not try to convince people to do ANY actual work for ANY product: diet, skin, make money online etc.)

If you’re running a small scale business (ability to get to seven figures per year in annual income but tough to get into the eight figure range) then you don’t need to hire anyone. If you need a specific task done that is outside of your core competencies, then you can hire an outside agency to do it for a flat rate. This means you don’t have to worry about a payroll. You don’t have to worry about hiring and firing. You don’t have to worry about “management” in general.

Before you spend $50-100K creating your product it is best to see if you can sell the product in the first place. Under no circumstances do you create a product without seeing if you can sell it first.

When your business is running smoothly (enough for you to live), we strongly recommend bleeding the cash flow dry. Since you likely have several raving reviews, it will take the Company at least a full year to get rid of you. You can simply decrease your effort level every single review cycle until you’re out the door.

Can you get away with doing the minimum for a full year? The answer is an absolute yes. With a few short years of positive reviews, all you need to do is perform at or around the middle of the pack (no more, no less!). Sure you’re not going to get a big income bump, you’re likely flat lined, but you won’t be doing much. Collect the large paycheck, health insurance, a 401K match and continue in cruise control.
[80/20, delegate downwards, adjust schedule to avoid showing up in morning, do other work at work, take all personal and sick days, avoid all politics, no chasing customers (if sales). End goal: working for 10-20hr weeks]
Simple rule of thumb. No matter what… get laid off, don’t get fired. Doing a mediocre job isn’t going to get you fired. It will get you laid off with some financial benefits.

With this in mind we think the ideal balance is going out two times a week, Thursday and Saturday.
With the back drop out of the way, here is the primary issue: it’s difficult to switch from work mode tosocial mode.

Steer the conversation to the present moment. No one cares about the past or the future in a bar or nightclub. Focus on now. Structure conversations around observations of your surroundings. Other people interacting, the design of the venue, so on and so forth.
Under no circumstances do you immediately ask for their name. In general, most will ask for your name particularly if you’re grabbing drinks already. In addition, try to avoid topics such as technology, work and politics.
Stand in an area where people constantly walk by so you don’t have to run around. The line between the bar and the staircases/bathrooms are the traffic flow zones. The reason to stand in these areas is due to the fact that the pack separates. It is much more common to see people alone or in pairs as they move back and forth from these vortex zones.

Always start a conversation with an assumption. It doesn’t have to be great. Anything about the present moment and make sure it is not offensive or an outrageous undeserved complement. “Hey I bet that is XXX (specific assumption)” is just fine.
Talk to anyone you’re interested in that gives you direct eye contact and doesn’t break the gaze within a second or so. This is how women show interest. If you’re never getting eye contact there is something wrong with: 1) the clothing 2) the venue or 3) your body language. This is more of an art than a science
Get as many “No’s” as you can so you can to quickly desensitize yourself and realize that none of the people you meet will actually remember the interaction by the next day. Besides, if you’re already on the path to becoming rich… who loses in the interaction? The person unwilling to even talk to you. They lost a solid contact at minimum since you will be rich. Also by getting “No’s your interactions will become “smoother”. You’ll learn a lot about what you can and cannot get away with… You’ll be surprised at what works and also what does not work
Talk slightly more than she does at the beginning and by the end she should be talking more than you (2 ears one mouth)
When you’ve talked to someone for about 20-30 minutes or so (dancing/talking are interchangeable) then simply hand them your phone with the add contact open and she’ll fill it in. She’ll also laugh at your strange approach which is a good thing

The ideal move is to simply call. If she’s interested and you call in the evening during the week, she’ll pick up. If not, leave a voice mail saying you’re interested in taking her out
Donot“pre-sell”yourself.Ifshe’salreadyrespondingthenshe’salreadyinterested.Keepit casual and fast so you can get a day on the calendar before losing her interest

Rememberthatanythingyousend*will*beseenbyherfriends.Ifyoudon’tseemlikeacool person to her friends or at least simple, you’re killing your chances

All vacations should be international when you’re young. This is both cost effective and return effective. If you’re taking two weeks off to go and live it up, then you should target low cost countries with a party scene (Eastern Europe, South America, South East Asia etc.). By doing this you reduce the cost of your vacation expenses and you see what money can do for you. By spending a few thousand dollars abroad you’re getting the spending equivalent to 3x that amount in the United States
Avoid going all in. Unless you’ve already made it, do not make a foolish decision and become a “nomad” until you’ve got your financials in shape.

All problems with dating can be summarized as follows “Whoever needs the other person the least is in control of the relationship”.

We are 100% against getting legally married due to the higher tax rate (outrageous that it is set up the way) and the loss of 50% of your assets at any time (for nothing).

Relationships don’t take work. If the girl you’re dating demands too much time or too much of your resources either you’re not where you need to be financially or you are not that interested in the girl. If there is a lot of conflict all of the time just move on
Don’t expect any girl you date to be perfect. You should know the downsides of the girl you’re dating and decide if that is something your personality lines up well with. If a girl puts a lot of value in going to Broadway shows and dinner, then consider that a change in your lifestyle versus nightclubs and bars. If she’s more interested in going outdoors, then decide if you’re willing to adjust your social life to doing outdoor activities on a regular basis.
The best advice for managing a relationship is “don’t ask for advice”. If you ask for advice on how to handle your own relationship then you’re going to lose the girl anyway. If you’re not willing to lose your girlfriend she’ll end up leaving you anyway. That is probably the most common mistake people make. It is also why we laugh when people pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for relationship counseling
Make your lifestyle clear. If she doesn’t understand how you live your life, then you’ll create conflicts from day one. Make it clear and then see if she’s still interested. If not, it wasn’t going to work out anyway
Don’tletanythingdragalong.Ifyourealize3monthsor10monthsdownthelinethatitis not going to work, go ahead and end the relationship. It does not do you any favors and does not do her any favors as well. There is no reason to be nasty about it just separate on positive terms

Notice we had no sections on “thinking like a winner” that is because there is no such thing as “Thinking and Growing Rich”. Thinking about becoming rich is what the masses do and that is exactly why they don’t get rich. Instead, you’re going to come up with a tangible plan, and execute.
If you’re not executing every day, you’re falling behind every single day.

We’d summarize everything in this book as follows. Get in shape, start making money off of performance and all your extra money should fund a real second source of income *before* investing in assets. When you get rich? Feel free to do as you like, just don’t run out of money before you die.
