THE AVOCADO PRINCIPLES
I love this metaphor because it’s so true. However, the real metaphor for me, because I experience this day in and day out with clients, is in planning. I spent a lot of time teaching a system that I call “Double Your Days”, it’s a time blocking system and it’s included in a lot of my online training programs including Restaurant Owners Roadmap or my new program coming out in a few months called SCALE.
The core of Double Your Days is planning (getting ahead). No restaurant owner has ever said, “I got everything done this week/month/year and I got all the free time in the world to just chill out.” Why not? It’s because of planning! Take a half hour at the beginning of the week and plan your week specifically. By this I mean to block out everything you want to do specifically like 8:00-9:00 do this and from 9:00-10:00 do that.
When you plan ahead, you’re going to accomplish everything you want. But when you’re so impatient that you’re always in the moment, looking for the instant gratification, not willing to invest in your business for the future, and not willing to make a little sacrifice now, or spend some time in places that don’t bring you a instant gratification but will pay off for you in the end – you’re always going to be chasing. So stop!

In other words, buy the avocados before you need them and keep buying them – that’s the key. You can’t just buy a dozen avocados because then they’re going to get ripe before you can eat them all. You buy them, you wait and then you keep buying so you’ve always have a steady stream. I hope you love this one, go check out Seth Godin’s blog, I think you’re going to love it. Have a wonderful day and I look forward to bringing you more great videos like this every single week.
