If you look around, do you see people operate with a sense of urgency? Do they seem hungry to win; passionate about what they are doing? It can be hard to tell. Some of us might not show it. Itโ€™s easy to be influenced by others and what theyโ€™re doing.

For example, we see someone excitedly share their verdict on Twitter of the new Netflix show that the person has been binging on all weekend. Or scrolling through your Instagram feed with an endless conveyor belt of gooey videos that pull our emotions.

We smile and let out a sigh of relief. Others we know are chilling. They are doing things, but they are not working. That means all is ok right? We can do the same. ๐—ฆ๐˜๐—ฎ๐˜†๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜‡๐—ฒ๐—ป, ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ป๐—ผ ๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ต ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐˜†.

Weโ€™re nudged by what we see and feel in our environment. We see the lack of urgency, and it informs our own behaviour. We have nagging bills, a fuzziness about our future, and a humming, underlying stress we canโ€™t put into words.

The comforts around us make us seem wealthier and better off than we are. The reality is that we entered into a period of economic uncertainty and a massive decline. But we do need to put ourselves in a better, stronger position.

The strength of a financial buffer or safety net; the ability to make money, faster, and the skills to do so. We need to know how to sell ourselves and stand out from the masses. We need to make more, save more and invest more. We need to be able to support and nourish our families.

This means we gain as much of an advantage in our ability to produce, learn, and tighten our skills. Right now. Today.

If weโ€™re to make big leaps, and do what is necessary to get there, we need to go further than merely setting goals or targets. We need to make promises to ourselves that excite us and force our accountability.

We need to have objectives and commitments that simply must happen. This comes out of a promise to ourselves and anyone else holding us accountable. This applies to our daily activities as well as big goals.

Make yourself the promise that you will earn a specific amount of money in a 30 day period by a particular date. Now double that amount in half the time.

Promise yourself that you will record and share a video every day.

Getting your name out there has tremendous significance. No one can pay you if they donโ€™t know who you are.

Make getting out of bed every day before 6am your moral duty, not merely a one-off job well done.

Make major, exciting promises to yourself, and do what it takes to make them real.

The average Londoner works 38 hours per week. Elon Musk works 100 and often more.

Weโ€™re not saying work like Elon, but be aware of how many hours are left on the table when you act like the general population.

You must view every minute as sacred.

Taking breaks is important. But when we want an unfair advantage, itโ€™s worth pushing back on the socially-programmed idea that we must rest over an entire weekend. Weekends are for when you are secure; when you have enough in the bank, not now.

If you are sleeping each night enough, you donโ€™t need the full weekend off. A half-day or so โ€” maybe.

Notice how, on those days when you get out of bed late and act with a nonchalance, your energy-levels match that behaviour?

For most of us, the more you move, given adequate sleep, the more energy you create for yourself. So get active. Move with a fluid, quick urgency, and see your productivity explode.

The more the better. Reach out to ten people a day or more. Use Wishu to connect and talk to like-minded people, companies. I know, it might be difficult at first. But itโ€™s a skill to develop and, over time you will start to enjoy it.

These are the sorts of numbers of people we need to be connecting with at the very least, one-to-one, to bring in opportunities for paid work, if we are in business for ourselves.

Big companies have entire sales and โ€˜biz devโ€™ teams to develop their networks and work with people towards landing deals and creating opportunities.

If you donโ€™t have a team, what are you doing to build, introduce, and nurture your network, your leads, and prospective clients?

Are you regularly talking to them?

Daily connecting is vital for the rest of us too.

We all need to befriend an ever-growing network of valuable people:

People who have influence over large audiences who can connect us to those audiences.
People who have reached where we want to go, who can tell us how to do it quickly.
Potential customers, collaborators, and clients.
Do what few others do. Grow a valuable and robust network.

Continual, one-to-one connecting will give you an advantage like little else.

In other words, take more courage doing what matters. If it seems frightening to you, youโ€™re on the right track.

Do more of the things that will benefit you that you and others think they dislike.

Because most people donโ€™t like to do things that are uncomfortable, you will gain an advantage by merely doing things that others donโ€™t want to do.

This is how you will gain an unfair advantage, and it is how you will succeed.
