Stop Half-Assing and Start Whole-Assing!

Throw away your Playstation and delete Words With Friends.

If your goal is to achieve your highest level of greatness, there is only one route. You must work your ass off (at one thing).

I talk to a lot of people who tell me about how hard they work yet are meeting with minimal success in life or business. It never makes sense to me until I find out they have loads of down time. They have time to watch marathon episodes of Real Housewives, time to have fresh playstation or words with friends skills, time to have brunch AND hit up the club on Sundays. No wonder they are not winning like they know they should be.

The bottom line is that we all have the same 24-hours in a day. [inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]What separates people crushing the game from those getting crushed in the game is the amount of time focused on task.[/inlinetweet]

I had the opportunity to work and be mentored by two billionaires in my career. These were two completely different people dominating their fields. One female, the other male. One single, the other married. One in the entertainment industry, the other in the education sector. While entirely unique to each other, they shared many traits, the most significant being concentrated work ethic. They focused all their energy in one idea.

Sure, they still enjoyed time with family and friends. Sure, they had hobbies. But their passion was treated like a parent cares for a child. There was no 24-hour period that went by without them giving it significant love and attention. They never took full weekends off, they don’t own Playstations, they never “kinda” worked hard, they never half-assed when it came to their passion.

Lesson: If your goal is to win big, stop half-assing and start whole-assing!

Great post Paul! A bit convicting and definitely motivating!

I wouldn’t necessarily say that taking a whole weekend off or owning a Playstation is considered half-assing. Life isn’t about being a billionaire or making money. Sure the passion for your career and goals in life is a great trait to have, but at the end of the day its not money that will make a person happy. Maybe taking a long weekend with family or taking a trip is what people enjoy. Going on a camping trip, hitting up a club once in awhile, or playing Playstation with your dad is what you look back on and say, that… Read more »

I agree. I also understand what Paul means too. There must be a balance. No, attaining goals won’t come through a marathon of playstation, EVERY DAY, however, if you want to spend your Saturday morning doing it, then why not? Our country has made the 9-5 defunct. People are chasing dreams of being successful or are just getting by. Yet, we collectively are not any happier than when we had a 9-5, got by on less and had more quality of life. We really need to look at what being workaholics has done to our society collectively. Yes, I’d like… Read more »

I think the article was worded in one context but you both understood it in another. He’s saying from experience, what it was that those people who achieved their goals of success had in common, and how it consistently differed from those who were continuously falling short. Livingston, you make great points. I agree that while on the road to success we must stop to smell the roses. But when you’re currently not happy with your results, you do have to look for opportunities to do something different. A lot of those opportunities are in the time you invest into… Read more »

I understood completely. When it came to their passion, give 110 percent. There are a few sentences such as: “they don’t own playstations, never took full weekends.” Just saying that might of needed to be worded differently. Its as if anyone who does those things might take a slight offense to it even if it wasn’t meant in that context. Its okay to play playstation, or take a long weekend, just not all time time.

Hello,I Read the article of a very great spell caster and it seems very helpful to me. I haven’t had the chance to have a proper relationship with my ex because we work together. This will be the final week or work and then I wont be around him constantly. Unfortunately, I broke one of the rules in the article and have been sleeping with him. Something I’m not proud of, especially since he has a girlfriend. Not to mention that she’s a girl he dated off and on for 3 years before he dated me.When I asked him why… Read more »
