Grab Axe, Start Swinging

Purge Lifestyle

At what?  Almost everything.  And everyone.  Figuratively, of course.  But millionaires make a habit of putting all extraneous BS on the chopping block, and cutting it outta their life.  Why?

How ’bout: lower stress, a calm mind, more creativity, simpler days, more leverage, and more enjoyment?  Any of that sound good to you?  Of course it does.  So let’s talk about what to axe and how, so you can get down to the vital few things that really move the needle in business and in life.

One of my mentors taught me this.  It’s called the “EDAD filter.”  Which stands for: eliminate, delegate, automate, do.  And how it works is, you run every relationship, chore, and business task through it.

Like so:

First ask: Can I eliminate this?  If yes, then do it.  Boom, you’re done.  If not, ask: Can I delegate this?  If so, hand it off.  If not, you ask: Can I automate this?  And so on.  Such that, very little makes its way to “do.”

But when it does, well, ain’t nothin’ to it but to do it, Ronnie.  And those select few things should be fun and make you the most money.

Seriously, try it.

What you’ll find is, clarity and quality go up in direct proportion to the amount of garbage you cut out.  But stay on offense.  If you don’t proactively purge, irrelevant sh*t will sneak back into your days.

Which is about as bueno as a canker sore on the tip of your tongue.
