Why Do I Quote People So Much?

Why do business owners burn out? One reason is that you might be using too much energy to make decisions for your business. If you don’t have frameworks, shortcuts you can follow to think faster, you’re risking burn out unnecessarily.

The Power of Strong Frameworks

Hitting $100 million in revenue will expose every minor flaw in your strategy. I’m talking about the strategy you use to make decisions for your business.

Too many people are “free wheeling” business. They don’t have a real strategy on how to make decisions. I call these strategies frameworks.

Frameworks are shortcuts that help you think clearly and make better decisions. It’s why I teach things like The 67 Steps.

Frameworks provide a structured approach to scaling your business. They help you stay focused and consistent.

Remember, on any given day you have a set amount of glycogen your brain can use to make decisions. It’s like gas in a car. The more you think, the more you’re pressing on the accelerator, the more gas you’re going to use.

So, if you have frameworks you can follow, you’re going to have more brainpower to focus on what matters, and make wiser decision… especially when it come to scaling your business.

Good Artists Copy. Great Artists Steal.” But Steal From The Best

Pablo Picasso said, "Good artists copy, great artists steal." This isn't about plagiarism, it’s about learning from the best, and using what you learn in your own situation.

You must go “straight to the top”. Want to learn basketball? Study and copy Michael Jordan… that’s what Kobe Bryant did. Do you want to have a portfolio of companies that helps you grow your wealth? Study and copy Warren Buffett.

This is a skill that you can develop and apply in your ventures to ensure sustainable growth and success.

Remember, “stealing” from the best doesn't mean copying them directly—it means understanding the principles that underlie their success and adapting those principles to fit your unique situation.

Become A Learning Machine

Remember what Richard Dawkins says in his book “The Selfish Gene”:

Survival machines that can simulate the future are one jump ahead of survival machines who can only learn on the basis of overt trial and error. The trouble with overt trial is that it takes time and energy. The trouble with overt error is that it is often fatal. Simulation is both safer and faster.”

The only way you are going to “simulate the future” is by gaining the knowledge of people who are ahead of you, and using it to analyze what you’re doing, and what effect it will have in your future and your business’s future.

Use A.I. To Learn 100 Times Faster (A.I. Tip Of The Day)

Look, I get it. Not everyone can read a book a day, and scale their company in the process.

This actually means you need to set up your life a little bit differently, but that’s a topic for a different blog.

If you ask A.I. to summarize any book, into the book’s most important lessons as a bulleted list, you can take those lessons and start applying them.

To Sum It All Up

Stop wasting your glycogen, and think in frameworks. Use those mental shortcuts.

For now, start thinking about who “at the top” you can copy. Use my “straight to the top framework”.

Keep an eye out for future blog posts, because I’m going to share different wealth creation frameworks you can use to scale your business.

I’ll share them for free, for now.

Stay strong,
