What do Musk, Buffett, & Bezos all have in common (besides a lot of $$$)?They know copying others isn’t about stealing – it’s finding inspiration and putting your own spin on it.
Today I am going to walk you through the 4 principles that took me from a Salesforce nobody to a 2-time Salesforce MVP nominee. This process is designed to cut through things that don’t matter to you and allow you to learn salesforce much quicker.
The principles of copying like a pro:
Clear End Goal
Let’s cover each:
Principle #1: “Find Inspiration”
Surround yourself with like-minded ppl. Go to Twitter or LinkedIn and search for the content you want to see more of and keep it on your feed for a week.
Come back & review it.
What do you like? What do you hate?
Cut the bad, keep the good.
The reason this step is so critical is that it’s not only going to just save you hours of your time by shortcutting you to the best answers but will also affect what you think is possible or impossible.
All great success stems from great inspiration.
Look @ the 5 closest to you, You'll be the 6th.
Principle #2: “Keep It Simple Stupid”
Most ppl assume that if what they are being taught is not filled with jargon and is technically complex, that it must not be worth listening to.
The more simple it is, the longer it took to get to that point. The creator is quite literally telling you the easiest way to apply what they’re teaching.
Think about it, apple sold us on iPods by telling us it would hold 1,000 songs in our pocket. They cut all the technical jargon and kept it simple.
It doesn’t need to be complicated to be great content.
Principle #3: “Clear End Goal”
Leaders in the Salesforce space have a specific goal — a deliberate purpose or target for what they want to achieve.
That end goal needs to be your filter that weeds out what you read, watch, and listen to.
I call it the “rabbit hole?” test.
Before you commit to learning anything, identify the “rabbit hole” of the content.
If you were to consume it:
What takeaways will this content give you?
Is it obvious that it will help you reach your goal?
If not, drop it and find content that will.
Principle #4: “Staying Consistent”
By this point, you should have a more inspired social feed that cuts through the noise and allows you to focus on your end goal.
This is now the last step in your journey, staying consistent.
Choosing to stay consistent or dropping all your hard work at the midway point is the difference between everybody else and the 1% who seem to get “everything” in the industry.
It’s not b/c they are lucky and it’s not b/c they are better than you — it’s b/c they outworked you.
Stay consistent long enough to see the results.
Intensity vs. Consistency
