Succeeding At Everything You Try

Now I know its not possible to succeed at everything you do, but there are some surefire methods that will make sure you put forth your full effort and get the best possible returns for everything you do.

Let me start by saying that this isn't just focused around making money. I am going to use making money for the context of this article but you can apply this advice into anything you do to get the most out of it.

I am a busy man. I work a full-time job, run my own business, I'm a personal trainer, plus I have numerous side hustles that require my attention daily. How do I manage all that and make sure I get the best returns from each. There is actually a very simple answer to that. I give my full effort to everything that I do and try not to slack in any of them. Now that is easier said than done. Depending on what you are wanting to do, you may not even know what giving your full effort looks like. Im gonna break it down so you have a better understanding.

The first thing you need to do is list everything you are trying to do. For an example I will list off everything I try to do.

  1. Full Time Job

  2. Personal Training

  3. Manage Stout Ox

  4. Fullfil Custom Apparel Orders

  5. Make Youtube Videos

  6. Write And Manage My Blog

  7. Coach My Step Sons Basketball Team

Now at a first glance that looks like I have a whole lot to do in a week and you would be right. This looks like it would be a daunting task, but I am able to simplify that and give my best effort on each one of these tasks. To give your best effort on all of these, all you have to do is start planning things out.

Get your schedule in order!!! Sit down and write out your schedule for the week and see where you can fit each of these things in. I work a full-time job so I know that at least for 5 days out of the week I will spend a majority of that time at work. Two days out of the week I will be at my Step Sons basketball Practice, and an additional day each week for our basketball game. I have all of my clients for personal training setup on a three day a week workout plan. So during the week with work and just basketball practice, that leaves me with three afternoons for training. On the weekends I have basketball games on Saturday morning. That leaves me Saturday and Sunday to fulfill my apparel orders, create YouTube videos, create blog post, and manage my company.

Now that I have set times to complete each of these activities, I need to plan a little more in depth. For coaching and personal training, I don't really need a plan going into it because I like to do everything based off of what's needed or how we feel. For my blog, YouTube, and managing my company things are a little different. At the moment I only have one video up on my YouTube channel, but I have my first 20 videos already planned out. Each of them already have a script, thumbnail, and any extra stock footage and b-roll that is needed for them in a neatly organized folder on my laptop. That way when I go to film I can knock out several videos in an hour. My blog posts are roughly planned out on my notepad on my phone. That way when I go to write a blog post I can write a decent length post in about 30 minutes. Sometimes if I have planned out enough I can write two to three posts in 30 minutes. Not much planning goes into my full-time work though. I'm not the boss so I get told what to do once I'm there.

Being good at everything you do, or at least trying your best at everything you do comes down to two things in my opinion. Having good time management, and being prepared. With just those two aspects, whether it comes to starting your own business, starting several side hustles, making your own music or movie you can give it your all and get the best outcome.
