What’s New?

Stop and think about how much of your life is the same as it was five years ago.

I’m not talking about your specific income, which is probably gone up at least due to inflation, nor am I talking about the clothes you wear, the car you drive, or even the job you have.

I’m talking more about the things that define who you are as a person. The people you associate with, the books you read, the movie you see, the television you watch, the activities you do during your discretionary time, and how you spend your discretionary income.

How many of those things have changed? If you’re like most people, the answer is, “not many.”

If you truly want to change your life, change the things that matter. The superficial things will take care of themselves.

  1. I'll probably have to go 6 years back in time but the change has been unreal. I was of the impression that books where something I read when I was in school. Now I have become a lifelong learner. All it took was a quote from Jim Rohn: “The book you don't read, won't help”.

    Another quote that I have taken to heart is “Work harder on yourself than you do on your job”. I could go on and on, but the short version is that my philosophy and way of thinking and action was changed in a major way that I could never have imagined.

    And I like where it is taking me 🙂

  2. I've educated myself constantly over the last few years, beginning with my first copywriting course, your webcopywritingexplained.

    Since then I've studied plenty other books and courses, and done a few copywriting jobs.

    I work to Gene Schwartz time – 33:33 using 'cool timer' and found I can be very productive with this method.

    And I've discovered I enjoy writing copy and blog posts.

    And the TV has gone. What a time waster that was. Not just for me, but epsecially for my kids.
