Fun

July 24, 2017

Hey guys, welcome to day 57. We got a couple more days of this video series. And we’re standing in my backyard here today. It’s a beautiful day. And what I want to talk to you about is scheduling, having fun, and protecting your fun time. Too many people get so hyper-focused on their work. And they just totally forget to slow down, smell the roses as they say, and schedule and have some fun and protect that fun and not let something just come up. 

 

So we’re here in my backyard, we got some fun peeps hanging out. We kind of took the day off. And we’re just saying hi, saying hello to everyone. And it’s a beautiful day. So balancing having a balance. Now when I say balance is not like having two hours of work, then two hours of fun. Two hours work fine. Now that kind of balance. That’s not real, what I’m more talking about is what Napoleon Hill is referencing, in the law of success where he says for every three or four hours, where he’s writing his book and doing his creation and working on his masterpiece. He does 15 to 20 minutes of the piano. And then I’ll do a bunch of work. And then I’ll do some piano again. I’ll do some work. And I’ll do some piano. So with all that you got to remember to have some fun, you got to schedule and have fun.

 So we put this on the schedule a while ago. We’re gonna have a bunch of people over to a beautiful sunny day, my friend and Jeanette are walking down the street saying hello. Hi and Jeanette. So I’m about to go down a waterslide. Sweet. Yeah, that’s a good life. Oh, yeah. So we’re just talking to the world. Today is day 57 Mandatory Fun Time schedule. I want to tell you guys a quick story. When I first started my entrepreneurial endeavors. I filled up my schedule so much with work because I had those two jobs. But then I also was building a business on the nights and weekends and taking up all of my spare time to do this, which I actually became a pain in the ass to hang out with. Vanessa told me about her cell. She told me that she is so beautiful. Anyway, she said, Dude, you’re no fun to be around? And are you sure this business, this thing that we’re trying to build is really going to be worth it? It’s just no fun bringing this, you know, negative energy to now so lopsided with the work that I forgot to schedule fun. And so I sat down with a mentor A while ago. And I was like, Hey, man, I really want to make more money. I want to have more fun, I want to quit my job. I want to enjoy what I’m doing. I’m doing all the things. I’m reading the books and doing the stuff and taking the steps. What am I missing? And I showed him, my planner. Right? So whenever you go ask a millionaire for some help with your schedule, you better bring your planner. So I’m showing my planner. And I’m like, Dude, what do I do? What am I doing? I’m on all the calls, I come to all the training, do all the homework, what am I missing? And he looked at it within just a few minutes.

 He knew exactly what I was missing. closes, the planner slides it over to me and says there’s no time. And I was like What do you mean? No you time? He says, Michael, you haven’t scheduled any fun? No, you’re not fun to be around. And so it’s affecting your business. It’s affecting your relationships. And I was like, wait a minute. You’re telling me that if I had more fun, that I would make more money. And he looked me dead in the face and said, yeah, that’s the truth. If you have more fun, you are more fun to be around, you will have more creative energy, you have more magnetic and enthusiasm. You’ll bring more people into your business. People want to be around you. And you’ll flourish and you’ll grow. 

So I started scheduling that fun time. And it works. So for years and years, we’ve been scheduling fonts sticking to it. And then what I want to remind you is while you’re having fun, you may have not completed your work, right, you still might be halfway done with your project. And now it’s time to go have fun. Be while you’re having fun while you’re doing your fun thing. Forget the project, forget what you were doing and be 100% on the fun. And then when you go back to work, forget about the fun and be 100% at work. Okay? It’s Don’t let your mind be at work while your body is at play. That’s so fun. Your friends, your family, they’re still missing out on you so, so wherever you are, so Jim Rohn says it wherever you are. Be there. All right now these kids are having a bunch of fun this slide I actually haven’t gotten down at yet. But I think I’m gonna go for it. What do you guys think? Should I go for it? Is it worth it? I don’t know. Should I do it? 

It’s pretty hot. Sometimes you just had the fun that the kids are having, you would actually make more money, you would reduce your stress, you would sleep better. You would be more fun to be around, you make more progress. If you’re an artist, you get to be able to tap into that. Artistic, creative energy. Bring more good stuff. Either you do it or I will. All right. Okay, all right. Let’s figure this out. All right. They told me the iPhone was water-resistant. We’re gonna go for this. All right. Mandatory Fun Time guys. schedule it, protect it. It’ll add to your relationships. It’ll add to your productivity. life’s about having fun doing new things. Oh, my goodness. Hi. Alright, guys. That was awesome. Have some fun today. Thanks for tuning in. I felt great. So high on day 57. Take back your existence. Like a punk peace out guys.
