How to Do Less and Get More

If your email box is anything like mine, it’s filling up this week with some pretty typical New Year gobbledegook.

Know what I’m talking about?

“Set your goals for 2010!”

“Get a fresh start in your online (or offline) business!”

“Go, go, go!”

I’m already exhausted with it.

But you know me.

I’m the guy who likes to do things easy.

I’m the “ne’er-do-well.” The “loafer.”

I’m the guy who wrote the book about how to fire-up your cash flow over a donut and coffee, for cryin’ out loud.

I’d rather sit at the beach, gaze at the waves, and smoke a good ceegar than spend an afternoon hunched and sweating over a keyboard.

So I’m not gonna tell ya in this last week of 2009 to get off your butt and spend all your time planning for the coming year.

Instead, I’ll suggest you take a few deep breaths, relax, and just put your mind to work.

But in a fun way.

Start by taking a look at this wonderful article by Brian Clark.

It’s called “How to Do Less and Get More.” And it really delivers the goods.

After you’ve read Brian’s article and given it a little thought, why not share your ideas by posting a comment here? We can spend these last few days of the year comparing notes.

P.S. Sure, profitable “loafing” is a state of mind. But it works. And if you’d like a few formulas to make it a bit easier for yourself, you really ought to also visit…

I hope you don’t mind, but if you click on the link and buy the product described, I will receive a referral commission. And you’ll have my undying gratitude!

  1. Hey Wally,

    I just wanted to say THANKS for including the link to Copyblogger’s fantastic article in this email.

    Not only was I inspired by the article, but I think I may have just found a new favorite daily blog. I’ve already discovered several links and articles on Copyblogger that will increase my productivity and my capabilities! Very exciting!

    Happy New Year, and thanks again!

  4. Good stuff, Wally and Brian. It’s the only way to succeed as a freelancer or entrepreneur. There’s always plenty to keep us busy (or think we’re busy). But what’s THE thing to do RIGHT NOW that will bring maximum return? That’s the thing to do. Let the rest go. I have a section in my book that details how I apply this in my writing life.
