Around the office today, people are talking about the newest blockbuster Batman vs. Superman and how their basketball brackets are doing. They will then go back to their desks and start watching cat videos and playing candy crush or farm games. It’s Spring cleaning time, and that means you need to clean up your work environment—not just your home. It’s time to start being Batman AND Superman—it's time to start living a 10X Super Life.
Some tips to live a 10X Super Life: 1. Someone tells you that you are working too much:
Anyone that suggests to you to do less is not a good influence for you. Do people know you because of your unbelievable work ethic? If you can’t answer YES to that, you’re not going to get into that top 10 percent of earners. Tell that person that you are working to your potential, not a quota. Nobody good tells Batman or Superman they do too much. 2. Someone tells you they have given up on the company target:
Any goal that is followed by enough action is attainable. Almost every problem people face in their careers and other aspects of their lives—such as failed diets, marriages, and financial problems—are all the result of not taking enough action. Tell that person that you aren’t going to give up on it, and that everyone needs to start doing more. Evil wins when Batman and Superman quit fighting for their super life. 3. Someone tells you to slow down:
Fast is the new big. Perfection is the killer to production. Perfection is basically a symptom of procrastination. There is no reason to slow down. If anything, you need to speed up. Tell that person that there’s no speed limit and that they need to step on the gas. Neither Batman nor Superman works slowly.
Don’t just talk about Batman vs. Superman today. Live the 10X Super Life like Batman and Superman.
