Everyone wants a simple process…or a fast process. Generally they want both, at the same time.
The “The 5 step process you need to do to make $10k a month in your business!” The problem with the desire for a simple process is the harder it becomes. Interestingly enough, when you have more steps though, things get easier NOT harder, BUT it becomes evident it’s going to take longer.
Regular people wrestle with whether they want something effortlessly or instantly – both of which they’re not getting. But they wrestle with wanting a formula to have something fast, but incredibly difficult. Or a formula to attain something very slowly, but very easily.
As stated in the post I made on the long hard way being the shortcut, the more steps you know, the easier it becomes, the more momentum you can get, the faster you can move forward. If you’re stuck, you likely just need to think of what the next step is to move toward in a tiny bit.
Everything becomes easier with more steps.
The 3 step process to become a rock star: 1) Get a guitar, 2) Practice like crazy, 3) Charge to let people hear you play. As opposed to the 3,000 step process, 1) Get a Fender Stratocaster from Guitar Center, 2) Get an amp, 3) Get a teacher… And so on. This is far easier and you’re likely to succeed with the 3,000 step process much more so than the 3 step process I gave you.
Start training yourself to break things down into smaller steps you can always be taking and looking for the process that’s more detailed than the appealing shortcut of a “3 step process.”
