Do the thing and you will have the power. Ralph Waldo Emerson uttered these words nearly 150 years ago that still ring timeless to this day. A lot of the time when people ask questions about productivity, they fall into one of two categories.

One being these are already productive people looking to actually be more efficient. These are people working eight hours a day and coming home to a side hustle looking to minimize clutter and distractions as well as maximize product moved or created.

Strictly by definition, this is already productivity at its finest. What would be next for this person is automating small task that take away from their main focus. Direct deposits, passive incomes, outsourcing even are just a few things to expedite the process.

The second kind is the person who is a undisciplined, lazy sloth. This is the type that will read blogs or self-help books all day to try and master the techniques described by the self proclaimed gurus. They will feel motivated for the time they are reading the book, but lack the discipline to follow through on it’s advice.

Do the thing

Do the thing. You might not feel like it, you very likely might not even be motivated enough to get up off your couch. I get it, it’s comfortable and what may seem like more enjoyable there laying there and watching Netflix.

I’m always tired after working eight to five at the day job before going to the gym after, but I know it’s worth it so I do it anyway. More often than I even feel more energized and sleep better after working out.

After getting it done at the day job, I already feel accomplished. (I get a sense of satisfaction from the day job…for now.) From just one week of getting up early, going to work, kicking ass at my job, and forcing myself to go the gym and read interesting books, it’s like I get off on it.

It feels good to be doing things and becoming accomplished. Slacking off may feel good at the time, but is unsustainable to say the least.

Doing the thing consistently, and with a little momentum behind you, you will have the power.

The power

The power for what? The power to do what? The power to do anything. The result in doing the thing is the power of mastering it. You don’t get big watching lifting competitions and you don’t have game from reading pick up manuals. Looking at you game theorist forum jockeys.

And with this new found power comes the momentum needed to keep the ball rolling in terms of productivity. You will exceed your goals one after another and nothing will stand in your way. Nothing will ever be enough for you and will be one powerful mother fucker.

With this country being the worlds largest consumer society it also is the worlds largest producer society (maybe second to China now that I think of it) Which means there is room for anything you can create. An insatiable appetite for the next big thing or even some great packaging behind an already known concept can make you a success in any endeavor.

Productivity brews productivity. It’s the Law of Attraction.

Choose the thing, do the thing, and you will have the power like He-Man.
