Hey Mike,
1. Get back to people QUICKLY, particularly partnerships/sales where they are doing you a favor in some way or other.
2. Don’t be precious with your content. Most writers and speakers fuck this up by keeping the good stuff so they get hired, but get hired less because of it.
3. Show up on time (or at all!) for meetings, even Skype ones. Occasionally something comes up and you need to shift it immediately, but amazing how many people miss meetings outright and apologize at some point after. People remember these things.
4. Don’t forget you are an investor, in how you spend your time. Every minute matters- Reading/writing/working on planes, in Ubers, on Friday/Saturday nights- it all adds up to a competitive advantage.
5. Cherish having too much to do and too many opportunities. Most people have the opposite problem, and don’t have nearly enough clients/inflow.
6. Have a “smell the leather” moment ASAP. I.e. if you wanted a Bentley, you would go to a showroom, sit in the car, smell the leather, to inspire you to eventually buy one. Another is to go and view million dollar houses to inspire you to one day get it for your family, etc.
7. Frame your personal life, love life, family relationships with the same logic you use to analyze business situations- It takes the sting out of them and helps you put things in their place fast.
