2019. What DON’T you want?
2019. What DON’T you want?
The world and his Facebook feed will be full of New Year’s Resolutions later this week (if yours isn’t already!), and I’m thinking about things a little differently this year.
First of all, my 2019 goals were planned out in October as usual, which means I’ve already started laying the foundations for them (and have even ticked two off already!), and can hit the ground running in January.
But when I was planning out my goals, I gave just as much thought to what I DIDN’T want, as I did to all the things I wanted to achieve.
Sure, I want to grow. I want to make more money. I want to have nice holidays, and better health. Blah, Blah, Cliched Blah.
But MORE important was what I DIDN’T want.
Things that I was currently doing, that I don’t want to be doing.
Traps and unhelpful patterns and routines that I’ve fallen into this year (or previous years).
I don’t want to work hard.
I don’t want to value money over time.
I don’t want to do ANYTHING that I don’t love to do.
I don’t want to take stupid risks.
I don’t want to put work before health.
Most importantly of those for me is “I don’t want to value money over time.” I fell into this trap over the last few years of doing things because they pay well. I hated dealing with them, and resented every single second that I spent working on those projects.
So at the very top of my 2019 vision board are the words “TIME ABOVE ALL ELSE”.
That’s my #1 priority. The most valuable asset that I possess and treasure. I’ve going to protect it with my life.
Because I haven’t always done that in 2018, and I don’t want the same for 2019.
What don’t YOU want next year?

“John and Jason have been there and done it and don’t have an ego about it like many others.
I know I am better organised, better planned and prepared and more likely to succeed sooner, thanks to their wisdom and experience.”
Could you DOUBLE your business 1% at a time?
Could you grow your business by just 1% this week? That doesn’t sound too hard, does it? Well, if you could grow your business by just 1% every week, after 69 weeks, you’d have DOUBLED your business!
These 1% gains are the same techniques used by the British Cycling Team that helped them turn a bunch of “also-rans” into world beaters, notching up forty-two medals in the last four Olympics, as well as winning six of the last seven Tour De France races.
The One Percent Club will show you EXACTLY how to implement these 1% gains into your business, and how they can stack up to REALLY grow your business.
John released his first book “Big Ideas… for Small Businesses” in 2017, and it shot straight to the #1 bestseller list for Small Business and Entrepreneurship on Amazon, outselling books by Richard Branson, Alan Sugar and Duncan Bannatyne combined.
Since then, it’s sold thousands and thousands of copies all over the world, and attracted more than 100 five-star reviews. But more importantly, it’s changed the lives of small business owners all over the world, who now understand that running a lifestyle business isn’t a bad thing.
