In the last lesson we covered how to get up and running with your lead magnet and landing page.

Although it looks deceptively simple on paper (well, in this case, in an email), it’s actually the key to your online success.

Make sure to go back to Lesson 2 and take action, today, if you haven’t already.

One of the best pieces of simple wisdom I’ve ever internalized is this:

If you don’t build anything – and have a clear and compelling offer – they will never come. They just can’t.

So take action today, it’s the only way forward.

Now onto Lesson 3: How to unscramble your eggs.

Every day, people with a passion and a dream wake up, roll up their sleeves (sometimes after a nice cup of coffee, like the one I’m having right now), and make things happen.

The world of entrepreneurship and business is a whirlwind of activity, and oftentimes a firestorm of chaos, setbacks, and frustration (not to mention stress).

But it doesn’t have to be so bad..

Often times, we make things worse for ourselves, by our own doing (or as we shall see, our non-doing).

Yes, there will always be many plates spinning at once, and there will be times that you feel overwhelmed, or you just don’t want to “do the work” that day, but with what we’re going to go over in this email lesson, you will find great satisfaction on your entrepreneurial journey and you’ll find greater success, faster.

Before we begin, I want you to take a moment to watch this quick 6 minute video by one of my friends and mentors, Todd Brown.

This video, although fairly recent, literally changed my life, and I think it will change yours, too.

So, what did you think? Pretty powerful, right? It truly was a pivotal video for me. I even shared it with my teenage daughter, and she *felt* the message, too.

But there’s a question that arises..

When we sit down to “do the work”, what is it that we should do? There’s just so much to do.

The answer is simple.. One Thing.

If you haven’t read the book The One Thing yet, make it a point to get it today (or order it at least).

It’s one of those books that just make it click for you. It hits you so hard you wonder why you suffered for so long without knowing this “secret”.

Here’s the biggest takeaway from that book, and the clear answer to the question above. It all comes together with a simple question that you should ask yourself every morning, and any and every time that you lose your focus or you feel overwhelmed:

“What’s the ONE THING I can do right now / today / this week such that by doing it everything else will be easier or unnecessary?”

…and then do that ONE THING.

And so on.

At the end of the day (and at the beginning of it), it’s about sitting down and doing the work, as Todd said. If you don’t do the work of your online business then you’ll never get anything off the ground.

Practice delayed gratification. Don’t make justifications, rationalizations, or excuses. Just sit down and do the work.

It’s a simple equation, with massive results –> utter bliss at the end of the day, because you know you did good. You did the work. You made it happen. So now you can smile.

Onto the fun part! (where you get to take action, and I get to hear from you)

As always, I’ve included a link to a worksheet at the end here.

I really hope you take a few minutes to complete these worksheets. It’ll help you, and it’ll help me to help you even more (as well as all those who come after you on this path).

So here’s Worksheet #3 –> What’s your One Thing this week, what will it do for you and your business, and how will you feel when you finish it?

Once you fill out the worksheet, I’ll send you a copy of your answers and I’ll also get a copy. I’ll also send you Lesson 4 (so you don’t have to wait another day).

Don’t be surprised if you hear from me personally 🙂

In the next lesson, we’ll look at how to avoid kicking yourself.
